LARGEST FEMALE SURFING EVENT IN THE WORLD TO FEATURE THREE-TIME WORLD CHAMPION AND DEFENDING CHAMPION CARISSA MOORE HEADLINING THE FIELD OF 100 TOP PROS
Melbourne, FL (May 8, 2019) – ASA Entertainment announced today that the World Surf League (WSL) QS6000 Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro will celebrate its 12th year at the Oceanside Pier in Oceanside, Calif., July 26-28, 2019. The nationally televised event is the largest female surf contest in the world, with more than 100 of the planet’s top pros scheduled to compete. Admission to the event is free.
The Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro will serve as the only major all-women’s WSL qualifying event in North America, and plays a critical role for surfers looking to solidify their position on the 2020 WSL Women’s World Championship Tour (WCT).
“This contest is extremely important in the qualification process for next year’s WCT,” said Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Women’s Tour Manager. “The event is an amazing combination of the best surfers on the planet with many of the newer faces just beginning their pro journey. That’s just one of the things that makes this all-women’s contest so unique within competitive surfing.”
Some of the world-class surfers expected to compete include 3-time World Champion Carissa Moore, current #2 ranked Caroline Marks, former Super Girl champions Lakey Peterson, Tatiana Weston-Webb, Malia Manuel, Sage Erickson, Coco Ho, and Courtney Conlogue, and star surfer Alana Blanchard.
”All of the women are so excited about this event,” said Sage Erickson, one of the world’s top surfers and a two-time Super Girl Pro champion. “It’s so awesome to have a contest like this in the U.S. that focuses entirely on women’s surfing. The whole festival around the event gets bigger each year, and the crowds are huge. It’s amazing to see how many incredible things are going on at the event beyond women’s surfing that all speak to the female empowerment theme. It’s my favorite event of the year!”
In addition to the best surfing in the world, the event features an action-packed Festival Village with 20 live concerts, the only female-driven multi-title esports tournament in the U.S., an all-female DJ contest, a women’s skateboarding competition, fitness and dance classes, yoga, speakers, autographs, hair and beauty styling, a Celebrity Surf Invitational, 40 vendor booths, and many other activities.
The complete entertainment and music lineup will be announced shortly.
The event will run daily from July 26 through July 28, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Access to the surfing, concerts, esports, classes and all elements are free to attend.
