The Roxy Pro France Surf Tournament to be Held Sept 28 - Oct 8


09/25/2002

Hossegor, France - Commencing tomorrow, the 26th of September and boasting a waiting period right through until the 8th of October, France's only World Championship Tournament (WCT) will bring together the world's best surfers to do battle on the Basque and Landes coasts. The top 46 men and 17 women on the ASP tour will be present at the Quiksilver Pro and Roxy Pro France.

The top 17 women on the ASP world tour will contest the Roxy Pro France, the penultimate event of their 2002 season. At stake is US$60,000 prizemoney, with US$10,000 awarded to first place. Amongst the favorites are four-time consecutive world champions Lisa Andersen (Aus) and reigning holder Layne Beachley (Aus), current ratings leader Melanie Redman-Carr (Aus), and last WCT winner in Portugal, Megan Abubo (Haw).

In order to guarantee the best surfers in the world get to compete on the best possible waves France has to offer, Quiksilver has set up a logistical operation of great proportions to allow the contest to be totally mobile over four different sites. The main location will be established at Hossegor, with annex sites at Seignosse, Capbreton, and the bay of Lafitenia in St Jean de Luz. Every day a decision will be made as to which site competition will be held at, pending quality of surf.
