After 4 months on the road, Rip Curl surfer Pauline Ado finally made it back home to France, to compete in the Roxy Pro in Biarritz.

Currently sitting in 9th place of the ASP tour ranking, she had to stay in the top 10 to continue on the tour next year, but despite the high pressure she pulled off one of the best contests of her career so far, defeating Lee-Ann Curren (FRA) and Silvana Lima (BRA). So if she makes it through round 3 at the US Open in Huntington next weekend, or Laura Enever (AUS) and Paige Hareb (NZL) don’t get qualified for the final, she's qualified for the World Tour 2012 again.

So stay tuned for more updates soon and follow Pauline on
