The event is part of the Super Girl Series, a mission-based platform that includes four women’s action sports, esports and lifestyle events designed to promote female empowerment, inclusion and equality. Each of the Super Girl events are centered around providing athletic, social, cultural, educational, and entertainment opportunities for young women in traditionally male-dominated industries.
“We are thrilled to have such an exciting and diverse lineup of activities at the event in addition to world-class surfing,” said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment, the event’s producer. “To have artists like Sean Kingston, We The Kings, Joywave, St Lucia, OMI and others performing and using their voices to help promote Super Girl’s empowerment platform is incredible. On the surfing side, the Air Force Super Girl Surf Pro is not only a showcase for the top-ranked surfers in the world, but also a springboard to help launch surf careers and provide unmatched mentorship between pros and newcomers.”
The event is supported by the U.S. Air Force, Florida Blue, CSI Companies, CELSIUS, Atlantic Self Storage, JOLYN, Kroger Delivery, the SpringHill Suites Jacksonville Beach, Perfect Hydration, Logitech, The Mayo Clinic, Sambazon, Ithaca Hummus, Gillette Venus, Day Chaser, Brine Lacrosse and the City of Jacksonville’s Tourist Development Council.
The event, in its 17th year in San Diego and third year in Jacksonville after expanding to the East Coast in 2021, is proud to announce that the U.S. Air Force has renewed as the event’s title partner.
“We are incredibly grateful for the men and women of the U.S. Air Force and how they have consistently supported Super Girl’s mission to celebrate female strength and empowerment,” said Bratman. “The Air Force has been part of Super Girl for 10 years and recognizes the importance of offering opportunities to young women in areas where they have been underrepresented. Having the Air Force in the title partner role makes so much sense given their long-standing backing of the entire Super Girl Pro platform and the strong military community in Jacksonville.”
The surf portion of the event will run daily at the Jacksonville Beach Pier from Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Nov. 12 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Festival Village at SeaWalk Pavilion will run on Saturday, Nov. 11 from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sunday Nov. 12, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
