Ah we're super-stoked for SW France's very own Pauline Ado who has written herself into the Euro surf history books (or would have if such things existed!) by becoming the first ever female surfer to requalify for the ASP Women's World Tour after a storming 2011.

At the US Open of Surfing Pauline was knocked out in Round 2 but as long as both Laura Enever and Paige Hareb didn't reach the final she would have stayed in the top 10, which they didn't so she did! Big congrats Popo! We can't wait to see her in 2012 alongside the current cover girl Steph Gilmore, recent cover girl Sally Fitzgibbons and the new World Champ Carissa Moore.

Watch out for a 'Pro Chat' interview with Pauline on the site very soon and until then you can watch the last episode of 'Follow Pauline' which features her at the Roxy Pro, Biarritz.
