“Winning at Cloudbreak is such an awesome feeling”, she said.
“You get smashed across the reef but you have to pick yourself up and get going again.”
She’s giving something to talk about
This is Sally Fitzgibbon’s 2nd consecutive win in the 2014 Women’s ASP World Tour, placing her as #2 in the world ranking, just below current world champion Carissa Moore.
Born on December 1990 in Gerroa, New South Wales, Australia; she wasn’t always a surfer. Despite learning to surf at 6, she liked doing many things and represented her State and Australia on 14 occasions in different sports: athletics – winning gold at the 2007 Australian Youth Olympic Festival 800m and 1500m – touch football, soccer, and cross-country running, all while attending high school.
Sally has been working her way to the top since age 14, when she became the youngest surfer to win an ASP Pro Junior (Under 21’s) event, also finishing second at the World Qualifying Series (WQS) Billabong Easter Girls Festival the same day. Since then, she’s had an impressive list of achievements and got into the Women’s elite World Surfing Tour through the World Qualifying Series, setting a record by wrapping up the 2008 WQS series in the first five events, becoming the youngest World Surfing Tour qualifier in ASP history.
Despite not having a World Champion Title yet, her career is full of records and in the last couple of years she’s been within the top 3 finalists. This year she’s coming in stronger than ever and is showing she’s determined to finally win her first ASP World Championship!
We’ll be watching the next stop of the Women’s World Tour on Huntington Beach for the US Open on June 27-July 3rd, to see what other surprise Sally might have for all of us!
A toast to all those brave,
and hot, surfer girls out there!
