The Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro will serve as the lone women’s WSL qualifying event in the U.S. and plays a critical role for surfers looking to solidify their position on the 2017 Women’s World Championship Tour (WCT).
“With the Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro representing the only women’s qualifying event in the U.S., this contest is extremely important in the girls’ qualification process for next year’s WCT,” said Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Women’s Tour Manager.
Some of the world-class surfers registered to compete include World Champion Carissa Moore, Courtney Conlogue, Alana Blanchard, Malia Manuel, Coco Ho, Laura Enever, Sage Erickson, and defending champion, Tatiana Weston-Webb.
“The girls are all so excited about this event,” said Malia Manuel, 2013 Supergirl Pro champion. “It’s amazing to have a contest like this that focuses entirely on women’s surfing. I’ve been to the event every year, and it gets bigger and better each time.”
In addition to the world’s best surfing talent, the Supergirl Pro features an action-packed Festival Village with nine live musical performances (including Multi-Platinum™ artists Cody Simpson and Daya), yoga, fitness, dance, seminars, autographs, hair styling, a skateboarding competition, a Celebrity Surf Invitational, an all-female DJ Competition, a Female Leadership Summit, and more.
“We’re really pleased about the event’s expansion, both in and out of the water,” said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment, the event’s management company. “Each year we look to add elements that will not only enhance the consumer experience, but will also further the event’s mission of providing opportunities for young women. It’s incredibly gratifying to have watched the event become the largest female surf contest in WSL history, and a festival that resonates so strongly with young women.”
