OCEANSIDE, California/USA (Friday, October 2, 2020) – The Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro World Surf League (WSL) specialty event is set to return pro surfing to California’s coastline October 3-4. This marks the first all-women’s event of the year and features some of the world’s best ready to ignite competition. The unique team format will bring Team California vs Team U.S. contests featuring 16 world-class surfers from CA, HI and FLA competing head-to-head to help answer the age-old question: Which state produces the best surfers?
Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro has provided a critical platform to elevate women’s surf for 13 years, and this year’s contest is even sweeter since nearly all the competitors haven’t donned a competitive jersey since the professional’s year’s abrupt halt in March. One competitor looking for more success at the Oceanside Pier is reigning event victor Samantha Sibley (USA). The now 18-year-old comes into the event after overcoming a broken wrist to start the year before events went on hold and returns with renewed vigor to do her part for Team California.
“I’m super excited to compete again after free surfing for so long and just give it my all,” said Sibley. “It’s the same mentality as any other contest and I’m feeling really confident in my surfing right now after just doing a trip to Mexico which helped keep that confidence level up in my ability. It’s great to be on a team with the women like Lakey (Peterson), Courtney (Conlogue) and all of them I’ve looked up to for so long and I think Alyssa (Spencer) and I are going to kill it (laughs).”
Fireworks await at the landmark Oceanside Pier, the 13th annual Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro showcasing a team format to put on a show for viewers around the world. While no spectators can enjoy in person due to Covid restrictions, the audience will be treated to the likes of World No. 1 and 4x World Champ, Carissa Moore (HAW), leading TEAM U.S. alongside Carline Marks (USA), Tatiana Weston-Webb (BRA), Brianna Cope (HAW) and more facing off against TEAM CALIFORNIA’S stacked lineup. Courtney Conlogue (USA), Lakey Peterson (USA), Sage Erickson (USA), and Tia Blanco (USA), along with defending event champ Sibley, and San Diego hometown surfers Alyssa Spencer (USA) and Caitlin Simmers (USA).
Conlogue returns to competition after sustaining multiple concussions within a seven-month period and looks to renew that competitive flame that she’s been known for since the beginning after “digging deep and rebuilding” her foundation.
“I love competing in California and when I remember my first Super Girl event thinking, ‘Wow this is insane,’ and it was all about empowering young women,” said Conlogue. “It also encouraged us to take challenges head on and use surfing as a tool to inspire. This weekend will be really fun to have teams with surfing being such an individualistic sport and I think that’s what this event is all about is just to have fun. But it’s also about just getting back out there. We’ve dealt with a lot this year but the Super Girl has always had that idea that we won’t be held down.”
Also featured will be the incredibly talented adaptive women including 2010 Paralympic Sportswoman of the Year Alana Nichols, 2020 Women’s AMPSurf ISA Para Surfing World Championships Gold Medalist Liv Stone, first-ever ISA World Championship female medalist, Darian Bailey Haynes, and more.
The event will be webcast live via several partners, including supergirlsurfpro.com/LIVE, worldsurfleague.com and twitch.tv/supergirlsurf Oct. 3-4 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. PST. It will also be broadcast on FOX Sports throughout November and December.
