How amazing does Kelia Moniz look in the cropped Sunset Remix Rashguard she wore to the ASP Awards?
Action item for the evening – ASP red carpet and awards show for the Roxy girls…which means a little styling, makeup and hair to help celebrate and congratulate these girls on 2013 well done! Plus, it’s just fun to get dolled up and styled up with your friends so we had to make it happen.
Accepting her second consecutive Longboard World Title was none other than Roxy’s own Hawaiian beauty Kelia Moniz – who was an absolute showstopper in her #POPsurf neoprene cropped top and flowy skirt. The best part, was Kelia left it up to her fans to pick between yellow and pink…and the winning color turned out to be her favorite too (but of course she couldn’t have gone wrong in either!).
Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS) 22, has won the Roxy Pro France today in Seignosse Le Penon narrowly defeating fellow Australian Tyler Wright (AUS) 19, in clean 3-4Ft surf.
Penultimate event on the 2013 ASP Women’s World Championship Tour, the Roxy Pro France marks Fitzgibbons’s first event win this season. An absolute standout today, Fitzgibbons was the first surfer to net a perfect 10 in France, and holds three of the highest wave scores of the event.
“I’m so stoked, it’s been a long road this year and I wanted to finish strong,” an ecstatic Fitzgibbons stated. “In that final we switched peaks and I was just sorting things out when she got that 10, and I couldn’t hear anything after that. I got that last good one and I was hoping it would be enough. It’s the most amazing feeling! I’ve got my brother and my dad here and all my family watching online, they’ve been there for me every step of the way!”
A dominant surfer in previous heats where she comboed her opponents several times, Fitzgibbons had to fight through a tight back and forth battle in the final when Wright caught an inside righthander to score the only other perfect 10 point ride of the event.
“It was a tricky situation, I had priority and a sneaky right came in and I was looking for the lefts,” Fitzgibbons continued. “She went for it and really stepped it up, I saw her do that little air out the back and I thought game on I got to do something big now! Patience and perseverance and just keeping your head down, I kept going and I’m just so happy!!”
Tyler Wright (AUS) 19, consistently advanced through the rounds to earn her spot in the final. Off to a great start in the opening minutes of the exchange, Wright was chasing an excellent score when she found the little righthander that earned her a perfect 10 point ride. Suffering another assault from Fitzgibbons, she unfortunately couldn’t find a last opportunity to ameliorate her backup of a 7.00 point and eventually placed runner-up.
“I didn’t really have expectations, I’ve come here to surf, have fun and enjoy myself !” Wright said. “It was awesome to see Sally go out there and win her first event this year cause I know it means a lot to her, and she surfed awesome, definitely the standout of the event. She smashed it and that’s great for our sport to have a surfer like her on tour.”
Posting a third runner-up finish on the board, Wright consolidates her current second place on the rankings and sits an incredibly low 200 points behind current leader Carissa Moore, making for a spectacular finish next week in Portugal.
“I don’t plan on doing anything special like that I just do it, it’s the way I surf. That was a really entertaining final with Sally getting that last one too. The points and numbers don’t really matter to me, they never have. I’m just here surfing and having fun that’s what I do best. This year was never about that, I’m just happy to be on tour and living the life I live !”
Carissa Moore (HAW) 21, placed equal third today, adding yet another excellent result to her season tally, and will be looking to finish strong in Portugal to keep her dream of a second World Title alive. The powerful Hawaiian who earlier today defeated local surfer Pauline Ado (FRA), couldn’t match Fitzgibbons’s sizzling form in their semi-final matchup.
“Of course I’m bummed I wanted to make the final and have a strong performance, but that’s competition I just have to stay happy and focused and get excited for Portugal,” Moore stated. “I think the biggest key to winning in a place like this is being able to adapt very quickly cause it’s always changing out here. I didn’t find the waves that really built up and allowed for good surfing.”
Lakey Peterson (USA) 19, reached the semi-finals for the second time this season, narrowly defeated by Tyler Wright. One of the most progressive surfers on the Women’s World Championship Tour, Peterson put on a spectacular show for the French crowds and took things to the air in a promising preview of what the future of women’s surfing holds.
“I’m just a little bummed the waves did not cooperate in that last heat, the tide got a little to low,” Peterson said. “But I had fun, it’s nice to get a good result it’s been a little while. I love it here in France, now I can just enjoy it a little bit and head to Portugal for the last event of the year. I might stick around and surf a little more here, and watch the guys tomorrow, we’ll see it’s my birthday so I kind of want to hang out.”
The Inaugural ROXY Montauk Classic event was held this past weekend at Ditch Plains in Montauk, NY. The event brought in locals as well as avid surfers all the way from Florida, Illinois, Hawaii and beyond! Over 100 participants competed for prizes including Paul Mitchell product, local shop Air & Speed gift cards, and tons of Roxy goodies. Five time World Champion, Stephanie Gilmore, World Longboard Champion, Kelia Moniz and Monyca Byrne-Wickey were on site signing autographs, handing out awards and schmoozing and taking pictures with the elated crowd.
Saturday brought clouds and wind but that did not stop the contestants from braving the chilly weather and rippin’ while Sunday was a perfectly, quintessential summer, bluebird day for competition. Kudos to the on-lookers as well those who cheered on our participants and enjoyed the fun!
Event sponsors included Paul Mitchell, activating and offering ‘beachy’ hair-dos which was a non-stop line, Sun Bum sunscreen, which helped keep visitors protected from the New England sun; HeartBeet Juicery joined in and gave out their amazing concoctions of juices; Vitacoco water kept everyone hydrated; and Beachcomber Resort, kept us well-rested!
