Sofia Mulanovich Claims #1 Spot for the Fourth Consecutive Year, With
Young Gun Carissa Moore Claiming Her Second Consecutive #3 Ranking

Huntington Beach, Calif. – (September 11, 2008) – History repeated
itself at this year's SURFER Poll and Video Awards with Roxy team
rider Sofia Mulanovich winning top female surfer for the fourth year
in a row, her sixth SURFER Poll award altogether. Roxy's young
superstar Carissa Moore scored the #3 spot for the second consecutive
year
.

The 36th annual SURFER Poll and Video Awards is recognized as the most
powerful voice in the surf industry because the list is determined by
the people, those that love the waves. Roxy rider Mulanovich won her
first #1 SURFER Poll award in 2005, and remains on top ever since. In
addition, Mulanovich took home two awards in 2006 for Best Documentary
and Best Female Performance in a Surf Film for "Sofia – A
Documentary."

"I am so stoked to have won the SURFER poll," said Mulanovich, via
video.  "It's special because it is an award decided by the votes of
surfers from around the world, which is the group that matters most in
the end. To win the top honor four years in a row is so amazing, I
can't thank everyone who voted for me enough." Currently Mulanovich is
competing aggressively at the Billabong Girls Pro Rio in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil.

Sofia Mulanovich was not the only Roxy girl making waves at this
year's award ceremony. Sixteen-year-old "Queen of the Groms" Carissa
Moore
nailed the #3 spot for the second consecutive year.  Over the
past five years Carissa Moore has captured the surf world by storm
with her incredible talent and vibrant personality.  Amassing a fan
club that includes Kelly Slater, who said, "she's a refreshing face of
humility and kindness.  And she's arguably one of the best ever at her
age, in any sport."  Moore thanked her fans and her father for the
support given to her.

Sofia Mulanovich, the world's first Latin American surfing champ, and
Carissa Moore are proud members of the Roxy surf team.  Leaders both
in and out of the water, they embody the spirit and heritage of the
Roxy culture.
