The 32 best women surfers in the world will come together on the Basque Coast in Biarritz, the cradle of European surfing, where they will compete to succeed California's Jennifer Smith as World Longboard Champion. The Festival will kick off in the water, with the noseriding specialists demonstrating their supreme skill and poise and pulling off radical moves.
In style. While America's Jen Smith, Kassia Meador, Australia's Chelsea Williams and the Hawaiians Joy Monahan and Crystal Dzigas will be among the favourites, the French contingent has never been in better shape. Both Coline Ménard, runner-up in the 2009 World Championships and Justine Dupont, runner-up in 2007 and semi-finalist last summer, harbour genuine title aspirations.
Since its inaugural edition in 2006, Roxy Jam has played host to an impressive line-up featuring some of the most creative artists of the time: Neneh Cherry (Cirkus), CSS, Cibelle, The Do, Santigold… And the 2010 programme is as strong as ever, with Australian singer Micky Green and the French group Plastiscines. There'll be a feast of girl pop on Saturday July 10th, in the idyllic surroundings of the Port Vieux Beach in Biarritz. The concert is free.
