OCEANSIDE — The 2020 Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro will return to the Oceanside Pier on Oct. 3 and 4 where the top female surfers from California will face-off against the best from Hawaii and Florida in a unique team competition.
While no fans will be permitted to attend due to COVID-19, the World Surf League’s specialty event will feature a live webcast from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 3 and 4 on The Coast News website and several other media partners (supergirlsurfpro.com, worldsurfleague.com, and twitch.tv/supergirlsurf).
The two-day event will also be broadcast on FOX Sports throughout November and December.
The top three ranked surfers on the WSL Leaderboard and six of the top 12 will compete, including No. 1 ranked and reigning four-time world champion Carissa Moore, Caroline Marks (2), Lakey Peterson (3), Tatiana Weston-Webb (6), Courtney Conlogue (7), Sage Erickson (12) and more.
The 2020 Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro involves not only a California vs the U.S. team event featuring eight Californians and a combination of eight Hawaiians/Floridians but also a second team competition between eight 2-person teams that pairs one Championship Tour surfer with one Qualifying Series surfer per team.
All results from the weekend will accumulate points for both Team CA or Team U.S. and the individual 2-person teams. Prize money will be awarded to every member of either Team CA or Team U.S. and the top-scoring 2-person team.
“The Super Girl Pro has been a huge part of the landscape of women’s surfing for the past 13 years and it’s incredible that they’ve been able to make the event happen in 2020,” said Jessi Miley-Dyer, VP of WSL Tours and Competitions. “The field of talent competing includes both the best American surfers on the planet and the next generation of stars, and the competition format is really creative. The question of which state produces best surfers has been talked about in surfing for years, and this contest will help to answer that question in a fun way.”
