The 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP Championship Tour kicked off with the Roxy Pro Gold Coast at Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. The conditions were optimal with 2-3 foot waves, light wind and clear skies. The girls were all super excited to kick off the 2014 tour year with standout performances by reigning two-time ASP Women’s World Champion, Carissa Moore (HAW), and rookies Alessa Quizon (HAW) and Dimity Stoyle (AUS).
