Chelsea Williams Wins ASP World Longboard Title in China
“I’ve wanted to win a World Longboard Title since I found out it existed"
mardi 9 décembre 2014 –
Remarkably Moniz and Williams have met in the final of the GoPro WLC four years in a row, proving that these two athletes really are on top of world at the moment. Their friendly rivalry sees them now at two wins a piece in the Final in China.
Williams’ win today was a long time coming after finishing runner-up to the ASP World Longboard Title four times. In the first half of today’s Final Williams was struggling to adapt to the conditions and it seemed her fifth runner-up finish was minutes away, but the Gold Coast surfer struck and did some of the best nose riding of the whole event mixed with rail carves. Moniz caught a last minute wave, but just missed out on the required score, leaving Williams out the back to ride her wave in as an ASP World Longboard Champion.
“Did that just happen ? I can’t believe it !” Williams said. “I’ve wanted to win a World Longboard Title since I found out it existed. For a long time people have been telling me I deserve to win, now I finally believe them. I’m so happy and thankful for the support of my family, friends and sponsors. It was an awesome Final, Kelia (Moniz) is so good, we have a fun rivalry going and I’m glad that I got her back.”
