2008)- The Roxy ASP Women’s World Longboard Championships
(WWLC), the deciding event in the race for the 2008 ASP Women’s

des Basques in Biarritz, France.
Forty-eight of the world’s best
female longboarders are looking forward to compete in the
third edition of the Roxy ASP WWLC. Jennifer Smith (USA),
reigning ASP Women’s World Longboard Champion, and Justine
Dupont (FRA), runner-up in 2007, will both paddle out tomorrow.
Smith, 22, will try and defend her title
at the famous beach of La Cote des Basques. Runner-up in the
ASP WWLC in 2006 before claiming the crown in 2007, Smith
is looking forward to getting things going.
"When I was surfing this morning,
I was getting a little nervous thinking about the contest",
Smith said. "Now, I am feeling good. I am figuring out
with my boards I am going to ride tomorrow so I am pretty
confident. I love Biarritz, it is really good for longboarding."
Justine Dupont (FRA), 16, last year’s
runner-up for her first ever ASP World Longboard Tour event,
will try and dethrone Smith. Dupont stands as one of the many
competitors with the potential to take the ASP Women’s
World Longboard Title, and the young Frenchwoman’s second
apprearance in the Roxy Jam will be much anticipated by the
"I have no stress right now and
I know I will have to surf as last year, with no pressure",
Dupont said. "It is hard to compete in both ASP WWLC
and ASP Grade-2 Roxy Pro Junior but I trained a lot so I am
looking forward to meeting this challenge."
Wave conditions are expected to be good
throughout the week and the Roxy WWLC officials are confident
in giving the best female longboarders in the world a great
time in Biarritz.
"This third edition shoud be very
good as we are expecting consistent two to three foot (0.5
to 1 meter) waves", contest director Philippe Malvaux
"The one-to-one format will give
competitors a great opportunity to show their skills and battle
at their best for the ASP World Longboard title."
