Swatch Girl Pro China: Who will be the next World Champion?
From the 21. till 25. of November the best female longboarders in the world will compete for the World Title in China. Who are the favorites at the Swatch Girl Pro China?
With under a month to go until the historic Swatch Girs Pro China 2012 hosted by Wanning gets underway, the finest female longboard riders in the world are making their final preparations before heading to the Far East to contest the 2012 ASP Women’s Longboard World Title.
Swatch Girl Pro China: Who will win?
Among them, one of the hot favourites will be defending ASP WLT World Champion the 29 years old American Lindsay Steinriede, who was crowned at the inaugural edition of the event in 2011. The first edition of the event was also the international unveiling of the classy pointbreak set-up of Wanning’s Riyuewan Bay.
While the incredible surfing potential of the Wanning coastline was being revealed to the surfing world, Lindsay was experiencing the defining moment of her career thus far. “It was so amazing to win the world title in China,” admits the California regularfoot.
“With the pioneering nature of being the first pro event over there, the incredible buzz of discovery about the region and the wave, and just the awesome vibe among us competitors and the crowd, it all made winning the World Title that much more special. My husband was with me supporting me, and while losing out and watching my fate unfold at the hands of others wasn’t the easiest way to win, when I realized my achievement I couldn’t have been more stoked, it was just an unforgettable moment.”
