Oahu’s Coco Ho won the 2017 Pro Anglet, a World Surf League Qualifying Series 1,500 event, in France.
A Women’s Championship Tour veteran, Ho is ranked No. 11. She’s competed professionally for nearly a decade.
In the final, Ho bested Maud Le Car of France in two-foot surf and an outgoing ride.
“It was a dream come true to be in the final with Maud. We both struggled this year in our own way and it was great to share that moment,” Ho said. “This whole contest was super good practice. I was working on everything I’ve been struggling with, and it’s good to see it pay off. Volcom Europe did such a good job of supporting us and it was very cool to have them here today.”
