Steph Gilmore takes Roxy Pro Gold Coast

After a tough last year, four times ASP world champ and our former cover girl, Steph Gilmore is back with a vengeance this year and takes the first event of the 2012 circuit with a blast. But fellow finalists (and future Cooler cover girl, watch out for next issue!) Laura Enever, didn’t make it easy for her and fought back as hard as she could. But unlike last year, when Laura beat her in the quarterfinals, Steph was dominant all through the heat and deservedly took that victory.

“Coming into this event I felt like a new competitor,” Enever said. “I’m so stoked to make it all the way to the Final. It was so good to be out there with Steph (Gilmore). She’s coming back now which is great to see. It’s a good way to start off the year. I’m in the ASP Women’s World Title race and it’s not a fluke. I want to be up here for the rest of the year and hopefully go one better next event.”
