Summer is enjoyable for so, so many reasons. Longer days, vacations, and the beach usually top the list of things that make summer so awesome. Surfing usually makes an appearance on that list too. Stephanie Gilmore is a professional surfer from Australia. She’s a five-time world champion having won titles in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012. And it looks like she’s keen on two operating systems you and I love – Windows Phone and Windows 8. Video after the break.
OK, so the video really was a promotional piece for an upcoming surf contest. Roxy is sponsoring an event for the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour in Biarritz, France. Stephanie recently joined the Roxy team so they put her in the promo video for the upcoming event. The video is getting a little flak among female surfers for being too provocative and not really about surfing, but you and I are here for the technology right? The video features Stephanie using an HTC 8S (you could have done so well on pre-paid here in the US little guy) and what looks like the Surface RT. She’s like us!
Hey Stephanie, if you’re reading this send me your digits. I can show you the world*.
Thanks for the tip Matthew!
*The world refers to anything Windows Phone and Windows 8. You’d kick my ass at surfing.
