'I've never beaten Carissa!' not only you have Johanne, but you've also just won the #fijiwomenspro, félicitations!
Needless to say we are over the moon about @johannedefay's victory, and not just because we have French peeps at #Swellbound! 😜Johanne has one of the biggest smiles on the CT, only matched by her unwavering enthusiasm for keeping on charging. In spite of the ups (her #Trestles victory) and downs (*that* quarterfinal loss in #Hossegor), Johanne has shown consistency allowing her to stay high in the CT rankings and prove to the world she is more than just last year's #rookie. She has been extraordinarily resilient and resourceful in finding multiple partners to support her on the #worldtour, including fellow #Reunion island @floresjeremy putting his own money on the line and showing what aloha is about💪. We hope this victory sets off a wake-up call for mainstream #sponsors to play a more proactive role in supporting #femalesurfing talent from all over the world.👊✊💋
