This past weekend at the season's first qualifying event, the Australian Open Of Surfing, Maud managed to throw down a near perfect performance, making sure everybody's got her name imprinted in their heads. Loosing to one of her idols Carissa More in the semi finals by only 0.38 points, she took a shared third place with Malia Manuel with a huge smile on her face.
She posted on facebook “Craaaaaaazy, I finished 3rd in the Australian Open of Surfing in Manly !!! Season started great, I don’t have any words to tell you how happy I am !! It was so close in the semi final against my hero Carissa Moore, I had so much fun at this event and I would like to thank everybody for the support !! specially @joanduru , the best coach.." and also thanking all of her sponsors.
We agree: Great start to the season – major CONGRATULATIONS to you Maud from everyone at Volcom.
