Quiksilver’s Stephanie Gilmore Wins 5th ASP World Title!

This weekend, amid fierce competition and the under sunny skies of Biarritz at the Roxy Pro, Stephanie Gilmore took home her 5th ASP World Title as the 2012 Surfing World Champion.

“It was such a challenge to come back. It’s really rewarding! All the girls are surfing so well. I really had to give 100% in every heat that I went out to. I’m really proud of this title. There were so many people on the beach. It’s the most incredible feeling in the world.” –Stephanie Gilmore

Finishing with a final score of 18.53, Gilmore was all smiles as she was crowned with roses and awarded her title. Quiksilver has asked fans to help congratulate her, by uploading their favorite ‘5’ photo to instagram, facebook or twitter with the #5STEPH hastag. For every photo received, Quik will donate $1 to Coeur de Foret, Stephanie’s charity of choice.
