"Julia De La Rosa, formerly known as Julia Christian, got her start surfing the playful beaches and reefs of Southern California. Displaying a style and maturity well beyond her years from an early age, Julia began developing her competition skills on local amateur circuits and quickly developed a name for herself as one of the most talented female surfers ever to come out of California.
No stranger to the elite level of competition, Julia's experience on prestigious ASP Women's World Tour (2003 and 2006) should serve her well now that she's back where she belongs. Finishing just outside the cutoff on the ASP WQS last season, Julia was awarded the ASP wildcard to compete this year. You can bet that she'll take every advantage of the opportunity." - aspworldtour.com
