Meet the new World Champ.

Saturday July 14, 2012. Roxy Pro Biarritz, France
 Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 24, claimed her 5th ASP Women’s World Title today, winning the Roxy Pro Biarritz over Tyler Wright (AUS), 18 in Biarritz, France, today.
Today’s incredible achievement puts the young natural-footer in an elite class of surfers to win five or more ASP World Titles, overtaking records set by Freida Zamba (USA), Wendy Botha (AUS) and Lisa Andersen (USA).
For those watching closely, women and therefore the world have a rare talent on tour. Stephanie's talent is unsurpassed in competitive surfing. Her style, power and flow are bar none and that not including that special something it takes to win over and over. Like Kelly, Stephanie is approachable, nice unassuming and humble on land but in a jersey there's a vital transformation; they become competitive machines of perfection.
