ROXY Athletes Honored with ‘Making Waves’ Award at Ohana Gala
LAGUNA BEACH, CA, (June 22, 2018) — The Ohana Gala presented by the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center will be honoring four Women who have helped change the world of surfing.
Two of those women are ROXY athletes, Lisa Andersen and Stephanie Gilmore. They will be given the ‘Making Waves’ Award for having established themselves within the sport of surfing through their athletic pursuits, cultural contributions or distinguished themselves via their actions, performances, pioneering spirit and dedication to the sport, culture, business, and lifestyle of surfing.
Lisa Andersen – Four-time World champion and the pioneer behind the creation of the first women’s boardshorts, Andersen made being a female surfer mainstream.
Stephanie Gilmore – Six-time World champion and three-time Triple Crown champion. Tall, strong, and gifted with equal parts strength and fluidity, Gilmore has inspired another generation of women to embrace strength as femininity.
“I am so Honored to be presented this award alongside my heroes, and I am looking forward to a fun evening with family and friends.” – Lisa Andersen
