Women surfers taking over in France

The ASP women's world title will be decided today on the beaches of Biarritz, France. Only two of the women competing this week are in the running now - Sally Fitzgibbon (Australia) and Carissa Moore (Hawaii) for the final title.The Roxy Pro event has been running all week, you can see the webcast here on the Roxy site. Round 4 of that competition is now today - I hope the weather is better than here in Dublin!

ROXY PRO ROUND 4 HEATS
Heat 1: Lee-Ann Curren (FRA) Vs Pauline Ado (FRA)
Heat 2: Carissa Moore (HAW) Vs Tyler Wright (AUS)
Heat 3: Sofia Mulanovich (PER) Vs Laura Enever (AUS)
Heat 4: Coco Ho (HAW) Vs Paige Hareb (NZL)

Australian Stephanie Gilmore is competing too, there's a moving interview with her over at ESPN on her recovery from that terrible attack in December. It's great to see her moving on from that.

Happy Friday everyone!

Holy cow. I was in tears reading that interview. I'm so glad she was determined to come back. She is setting a great example. She's a wonderful role model.

@Snowcather - a real inspiration. She's only 24 so I'm sure it will all come together again. And as you can see on Sat's post, she won the event!
