Surfing: 2010 Movistar Peru Classic

Jun 07, 2010

Soccer might have the beautiful guys, but surfing has the hottest chicks. The ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals) Women’s World Tour Movistar Peru Classic took place in San Bartolo, Peru this week and all the gorgeous ladies of surfing were shredding 2-3 foot waves. Unfortunately all the girls had to wear their thick wetsuits as the weather is now approaching winter in Peru.


Sneaky Little Silvana

Silvana Lima from Brazil, only 4-foot 9-inches tall, took 1st place at the competition over #1 ranked Stephanie Gilmore and #2 ranked Sally Fitzgibbons. Silvana faced Stephanie in the Semi-Finals and narrowly edged her by less than 1 point to advance to the Finals where she easily dominated Sally by more than 5 points. Silvana sneaks up the ASP rankings from 7th to 3rd place, proving she is a contender for World Champion.


So Sorry Sally

Sally placed 2nd place in Peru and it is her third consecutive 2nd place finish in the ASP Tour. The girls call it a “Bridesmaid” to finish 2nd because it’s a pretty good thing, but not as good as being the bride. Sally is happy to get 2nd place because it keeps her points total high in the race for World Champion, but she feels dissatisfied not coming through in the clutch. It’s important for a World Champion to come 1st place at the competitions. Oh yeah, 1st place also gets $100, 000… not a bad prize for a weekend’s work.


Who Will Be World Champ?

The ASP Surfing Tour has a long break in the schedule, as the next event isn’t until October 7th in Peniche, Portugal. There will be 4 more competitions for the girls to get points and the World Champion will be crowned at the end of the year in Honalulu Hawaii after the Billabong Pro.
