News provided by ASP World Tour on 3 April 2006

The Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) is pleased to announce that the Roxy ASP Women’s World Longboard Championship (WWLC), the world’s premiere ASP-sanctioned women’s longboard event, will make its debut in the playful beachbreaks of Biarritz, France, from July 3 to 9, 2006.

"We are very pleased to announce the creation of the first ever stand-alone women's ASP world longboard championship to be held in the famous town of Biarritz, the birthplace of surfing in Europe,” Roxy Europe Marketing Director, Maritxu Darrigrand, said.

Held as part of the Roxy Jam Biarritz, a festival designed to celebrate women’s surfing in and out of the water, the inaugural Roxy ASP WWLC will award the first-ever ASP Women’s Longboarding World Title, an internationally recognized honor.

A non-ASP rated Women’s World Longboard Championship has been held in the Americas for the past seven years and the new Biarritz event, under a multi-year contract signed by ASP and Roxy, will honor the past champions and boast an unprecedented US$30,000 prize purse.

Open to both proven competitors and emerging talent from across the globe, the Roxy ASP WWLC will feature female longboarding’s finest, while at the same time giving the sport some well-deserved limelight on an international stage.

“I am really excited about incorporating women's longboarding as a world championship discipline,” said ASP President, Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew. “In its inaugural year, the Roxy ASP Women's World Longboard Championship will definitely attract the very best exponents in the world, and it's about time the girls strutted their stuff on the world stage. The legendary surfing city of Biarritz will play host to this special event and it will be quite a show.”

Located on the Basque southwest coast of France, the surf-lifestyle town of Biarritz is a perfect fit for the international festival. Various art exhibitions and environmental awareness activities, as well as a music festival headlined by female bands playing at sunset each day will run in tandem with the surf event.

"Roxy has always been leading the way and once more with the Roxy Jam Biarritz we will focus our energy to create a great girls event, which will not only be a gathering of the best female longboarders in the world, but will also be an inspiring event where all girls can share some fun,” Darrigrand said.

Female surfers interested in participating in this pivotal event are encouraged to contact their regional ASP offices for details.
