Swatch Girl Pro Finals Highlights
Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS) defeats Sage Erickson (USA) on an epic final day of competition to win the SWATCH GIRLS PRO France at Seignosse in Hossegor.
Both Fitzgibbons and Erickson surfed at their limit on the final day of competition in front of the packed holiday crowd who flocked to the beach to support some of the world’s finest women’s surfers, but it was Fitzgibbons who found the scores needed to take the SWATCH GIRLS PRO victory over the American surfer.
Fitzgibbons, who is currently rated No. 2 on the elite ASP Women’s World Title Series, competed in her second consecutive SWATCH GIRLS PRO France event and her victory marks her third major ASP win this year.
Erickson was impressive throughout the entire competition, eventually defeating Sarah Baum in the Semifinals, but was unable to surpass Fitzgibbons for the win.
Day 2 Swatch Girl Pro Highlights
The ASP 6-Star SWATCH GIRLS PRO France held a marathon day running through three rounds of competition to decide the final remaining 12 athletes in the chase for the 2011 SWATCH GIRLS PRO France title. Many excellent displays of surfing from both Top Seeds and young challengers were witnessed as performance levels rose in solid 4ft waves at the main event site at Les Bourdaines.
A slight overnight decrease in swell size greeted event officials and surfers early this morning with the green light given to start Round Two in consistent punchy peaks with little or no wind. Conditions improved with the incoming afternoon tide to the delight of the crowds lining the beach.
Towards the end of the day, the level of the competition reaches new heights: 12 surfers, including French Cannelle Bulard and Justine Dupont are still in contention to clinch the prestigious SWATCH GIRLS PRO France title.
Day 1 Swatch Girl Pro Highlights
The SWATCH GIRLS PRO France 2011 event was officially launched this Wednesday morning. 72 surfers met at the beach break of Les Bourdaines for an exciting and promising event.
The first heats were in the water as early as 7.30am this morning to benefit from the best wave conditions forecast today. The surfers were greeted with 4ft swell and strong currents, tough conditions for the start of Round 1, which translated in rather low scores all through the heats.
Initially scheduled at 12.30pm then at 3pm, Round 2 was eventually postponed until tomorrow as the wind grew stronger with the tide.
There is much at stake for all surfers as the SWATCH GIRLS PRO France will be a turning point in the season to either maintain a position or qualify on the 2012 WCT. In the Juniors event, the SWATCH GIRLS PRO France will offer the opportunity to the winner to qualify for the ASP World Junior Series event to be staged in Bali, Indonesia, on October 3rd.
