While most of us were snug in our beds this early morning, a fierce battle was going on in Biarritz France. The world’s best longboarders were up with the dawn riding the waves in a bid for the world longboarding title. Our own local girl Jen Smith came out on top.
From our Roxy PR folks:
Jennifer Smith (California, USA), 23, won the Roxy Jam in Biarritz today to claim the second ASP Women’s World Longboard title of her brilliant career after defeating fellow finalist and outsider Coline Menard (Reunion Island, FRA), 21, in the final heat. Smith, who dominated the final bout from the beginning until the end, confirmed her stellar semifinal run where she managed to score a 9.25 point ride, the highest wave score of the event, defeating Menard confidently.
“To win a second world title is just unbelievable,” Smith said. “That heat against Chelsea (Williams)… I was ready to bow out in the semis and I had no idea I was going to get that wave and this score down. I was feeling pretty confident after that and when once I made the final I was definitely looking for the second title, for sure.”
Way to go Jen!! Roxy is so proud!
