Roxy Pro Biarritz Starting Soon

An Instagram preview of World Tour Event 6

The waiting period for the Roxy Pro Biarritz, the sixth event of the seven-event ASP Women’s World Tour, began today. With the season winding down, Steph Gilmore currently holds the lead and has the opportunity to take the 2012 World Title–the fifth in her career–at this event. If she doesn’t clinch the title here, both Carissa Moore and Sally Fitzgibbons will still have a shot at the title at the final event in Huntington later this month. For more information, click here. On a lighter note, here is an Instagram preview of what you’ve missed pre-event in Biarritz.
