The Roxy Pro

Even the haters should love this event trailer

| posted on September 23, 2013

Back in July, the surf world erupted in outrage over the sexy trailer for the 2013 Roxy Pro Biarritz. And in this case, it seems the gripes were heard. Above is the (surf-focused) trailer for the Roxy Pro Hossegor, which was added to the schedule when the Biarritz event was cancelled due to lack of surf.

The event, the second to last Women’s World Tour contest of the 2013 season, kicks off in Hossegor tomorrow and will serve as a critical event in the race for the world title.

Round 1
Heat 1: Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), Bianca Buitendag (ZAF), Silvana Lima (BRA)
Heat 2: Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS), Laura Enever (AUS), Rebecca Woods (AUS)
Heat 3: Carissa Moore (HAW), Malia Manuel (HAW), Lee Ann Curren (FRA)
Heat 4: Tyler Wright (AUS), Alana Blanchard (HAW), Sofia Mulanovich (PER)
Heat 5: Courtney Conlogue (USA), Pauline Ado (FRA), Sage Erickson (USA)
Heat 6: Lakey Peterson (USA), Coco Ho (HAW), Paige Hareb (NZL)

Watch the event live here.

    wonder why they didn’t just do that in the first place? Alternatively, if they thought there was nothing wrong with the last one, why change it?

    Either way, why is this considered an “opinion” piece?

    Wait, I thought the “haters” were the ones who hated women’s surfing so much that they made a trailer consisting entirely of butt shots and then held the event during the off-season.

      LOL. I hear Roxy’s holding a snow jam comp in Palm Springs next summer. Snow should be epic!
