Silvana Lima Takes 2nd at Sunset Final
Billabong team rider Silvana Lima placed second in the final of the Roxy Hawaii Pro at Sunset Beach, Hawaii today. Lima held onto the lead of the 35 minute for surfer final for over 30 minutes until Stephanie Gilmore paddled into the wave of the heat and scored an 8.50 (out of a possible 10 points) to take the lead from her to take the win and seal the 2008 ASP World Championship. Lima was Gilmores closest rival to the ASP World Title and needed to win the Roxy Pro Hawaii to prevent Gilmore from winning it at Sunset, by placing second in the final Gilmore is now the 2008 and 2X ASP World Champion.
