Raise Your Surfboard in the Air and Celebrate Pauline Ado’s Birthday

On Valentine’s Day 2014 there’s a lot more for surfers to celebrate than romance. That’s because it also happens to be the 23rd birthday of one very talented, French pro surfer. Yes, we are talking about Rip Curl’s own Pauline "Popo" Ado. So get out your surfboards and raise them in the air for Pauline.

In 2013, she did really well at the Swatch Girls Pro France and the Supergirl Pro, taking 3rd place at both events. Unfortunately, she finished the season 9th when it came to the ASP Women’s World Title. Nonetheless, her fans haven’t given up hope of seeing her claim the number one spot sometime in the not so distant future.

For surf fans unfamiliar with Popo, she’s known to don her Rip Curl surf apparel and bust out bodacious barrels when the waves are right. She can also deliver a tremendous tail slide. Her sports career stretches back years and includes an impressive run with the International Surfing Association. It was during that time that she took home the 2006 World Junior Surfing Championship Title for her native country. By 2008, she was pulling down junior title wins on the ASP circuit. Now, she’s a frequent face at many popular surfing competitions around the world.

Rip Curl isn't her only sponsor either. She’s also presently supported by FCS Fins, Oakley eyewear and several more companies. So why not don some of Pauline Ado’s surf apparel this February, grab a surfboard and hit the waves. After all, the water is warm somewhere. If you’re not in the position to break out your surfboard, at least consider dusting off the balance board and your Rip Curl beach towel for an indoor practice sesh. It should at least help to keep your skills sharp for spring.
