Our girl, Stephanie Gilmore, is having an incredible week! Today she won the Roxy Pro in Biarritz clinching her first victory of the season and finding the only clean barrel of the event en route to victory. With no pressure and having enjoyed the week of action, she posted three of the event’s top-five wave scores and managed to take the final’s lead after a series of waves. The four-time ASP champion adds a 19th event win to her brilliant career with a solid 17.27 point heat result, the event’s third highest one.
“Today was unbelievable because so much has gone down,” Gilmore said. “In my perfect world somebody would be crowned world champ and I would take the win and that is what I dreamt about. It feels so good. I missed it so much this year. I am so happy right now.”
