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 Longboard #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 Longboard #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.”
