Chasing The World Title: Stephanie Gilmore’s Packing Picks and Playlists for Maui


For 5x World Champion and current ASP Women’s World Title race leader Stephanie Gilmore, Honolua Bay has been a welcome addition back into the tour schedule. Proving no stranger to the iconic break, Steph won her first world title in Hawaii in 2007 (her rookie year!) and then backed it up with victories in 2008 and 2009.

After being on tour for seven years, Steph has certainly got the travel routine nailed. Regardless of the event location, there are some essentials that are always close to hand. Here’s a sneak peek into Steph’s bag that she’s packed for the Maui Pro.

Steph's Essentials

1. Reading material – a great magazine makes lay days and long haul flights a breeze.

2. Steph’s Nikon camera – perfect for documenting the incredible locations on the tour circuit.

3. Lip balm and hair/body oil – all on permanent standby to protect her skin from the sun and surf.

4. Her favorite bikini – essential! This one is the ROXY Colada swim set, now available online!

5. ROXY shorts and sunnies – slip on shorts and slide on shades, ready to head out on lay day adventures.

We also asked Stephanie for her favorite pre-heat warm up tracks – now you can get inspired by the same songs that a World Champion surfer listens to!

And now, a little trivia! For the 10 years that Honolua Bay has been featured as a stop on the Women’s tour (1999 to 2009), it was won almost exclusively by Aussies! With ROXY surfer and fellow Aussie Sally Fitzgibbons also in the running to claim the 2014 World Title, this is sure to be an event filled with amazing surfing and close heats!
