The gorgeous Steph Gilmore just took out the first of the women's world tour events, in what many are calling a veritable turning point in women's surfing. The 5-time world champ securing her 5th career win at Snapper after eliminating defending champion Carissa Moore in the semi-finals.

But in case you didn't watch any of it and still feeling skeptical about the performance level of women's surfing, take a peak at this clip of the lovely Gilmore stamping her fluid single-fin style all over Central America's perfect pointbreaks. The lines and manoeuvres she draws are not necessarily always super critical, but how's that style and femininity? So sensual! Hit play at your own risk of falling helplessly in love...
