Roxy surfer Kelia Moniz (HAW), 20, today won the Swatch Girls Pro China over Chelsea Williams (AUS) and by doing so, claimed her second consecutive ASP Women’s World Longboard Title.
Kelia used her trademark elegant style, power and flow to lock in some excellent scores and take the win over Williams by 13,40 pts vs 12,35 pts.
“It doesn’t feel real yet” Kelia Moniz said. “I don’t feel like I was surfing my best at the start of the event, and I was a little shaken up going into the final because Chelsea (Williams) was getting 8-point-rides all event. Then I just pulled myself together, listened to some good music, said a prayer, went out there and tried to just stay on my board and it worked. Winning back-to-back ASP World Longboard Titles is unbelievable! I couldn’t be happier.”
