Rosy Hodge

It took Rosanne Hodge only one year to qualify for the 2007 ASP Women's World Tour after graduating from high school. With an upbringing on the right-hand point breaks of east South Africa, it's no wonder she can execute one of the best layback snaps in women's surfing.

At age 11, Rosy took 4th place in the U10 Boys division of the South African champs, and she competed on her national U19 team for the Quiksilver World Grommet Teams Title in Bali. Then she hit the ground running. Rosy became one of the very few Saffas to make Women's World Tour status, and she remained on tour for four consecutive years.

Now, Rosy only spends a few months out of the year on her home turf. Rosy has explored new avenues by commenting on surf specials and competitions across the globe. Listen for her South African accent in this year's ASP webcasts. Her bubbly personality makes her as entertaining to listen to as she is to watch.
