Roxy South Africa are once again off to Mozambique, to the fabled break of Ponto Do Oro, for the Roxy Invitational 2009. The perfect right hand point break of Ponto will be the arena for the 10 best female surfers in the country to cut loose on the best day during the waiting period 4-11 May 09.
This year there is a new initiative to enable all surfers the possibility of entering the event. Go to the event website ( http://www.roxy.co.za/invitational ) and if you think you deserve to be a part of this prestigious crew, then this is your opportunity to state your case and put yourself before the selectors. Entries close 27 February 09.
This is the third year of this successful and popular event, and the 12 open slots are possibly some of the most coveted contest slots in the country. With a R10,000 first prize in the mix, women surfers get themselves into a bit of a frenzy trying to get into the event.
The official Roxy Invitational website will be updated with the invited surfers profiles mid-March 09. The website also offers 2008 event pics, video and event news.
The Roxy Invitational is presented by Saltwater Girl Magazine, in association with Virgin Mobile and Resolution.
