2007 Roxy Jam Cardiff Featuring
the Linda Benson Women’s World Longboard Pro
Last year’s 1st annual Roxy Jam
Cardiff featuring the Linda Benson Women’s World Longboard
Pro was a huge success drawing over 80+ pro competitors from
around the world to compete for the $15,000 prize purse and
title of U.S. regional Women’s Longboard Champion. The
event also raised over $12,000 for the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy.
The 2nd annual event will again take
place at Cardiff Reef on Sept 22-23 and will feature the Linda
Benson Women’s World Longboard Pro, an amateur longboard
competition open to all ages, and a beach fair with vendors,
live music, art exhibits and more.
The momentum for the ASP sanctioned Women’s
World Longboard Tour continues to build with additional support
from Roxy. This past July the Roxy Jam Biarritz Women’s
World Longboarding Championship was held in Biarritz, France
and Southern California’s own Jen Smith was crowned
the 2007 Women’s World Longboarding Champion.
The 2008 tour season kicked off this
August with additional support from Roxy who added a new event
to the overall tour calendar – the Roxy Jam Honolulu
held at Queens. This event held August 23-25th kicked-off
the new tour season with competitors seeding into the Linda
Benson Women’s World Longboard Pro.
Linda Benson says “the Women’s World Longboard
Tour that Roxy has developed has been an amazing turn of events
for the forever stepchild of surfing. It is truly a Cinderella
story. The women longboarders are going to lead the
way into the future for longboarding.”
This year’s Roxy Jam Cardiff featuring
the Linda Benson Women’s World Longboard Pro welcomes
new presenting sponsor Schick Quattro for Women who will host
a ‘best maneuver’ award offering an extra $3,000
prize purse for pro competitors. Co-sponsor Hansen’s
will again feature the longest nose ride award offering a
$3,000 prize purse. Other sponsors include presenting

offering haircuts and styling with all money going to the
event’s environmental awareness mission; and co-sponsor
SurfTech who will award the winner of each amateur division
with a SurfTech longboard.
Other event highlights include a beach
fair consisting of food vendors, live music, an art exhibit/auction,
and a board shapers’ charity event featuring a chance
to win the board of your choice from legendary shapers such
as Donald Takayama, Robert August, Bing Copeland, Dewey Weber,
