Super Girl Surf Pro set for Nov. 11-13 in Jax Beach

Posted

ASA Entertainment has announced that the World Surf League U.S. Air Force Super Girl Surf Pro will return to the Jacksonville Beach Pier and Seawalk Pavilion, Nov. 11-13. The nationally televised event is the second largest female surf contest in the world, with more than 90 of the world’s top pros scheduled to compete. All competitions and activities are free to the public.

Some of the biggest names in women’s surfing are expected to attend, including former Super Girl champions Caroline Marks, Lakey Peterson, Sage Erickson, Courtney Conlogue, Caitlin Simmers, Samantha Sibley and Super Girl Jacksonville defending champion Alyssa Spencer.

Beyond surfing

In addition to the world-class surfing, the event features an action-packed Festival Village headquartered at Seawalk Pavilion with 12 live concerts and family-friendly activities; the annual Super Girl Gamer esports tournament; an all-female DJ competition; women’s beach soccer, beach volleyball and beach lacrosse tournaments; free classes in fitness, yoga, Zumba, Pilates, wellness and dance; female comediennes; a professional skateboarding competition; celebrity speakers; women’s longboarding; panel discussions promoting female leadership and sustainability; a female art exhibition; social influencers; autograph signings; a beer garden and 14 food trucks; a military appreciation program; and a mentorship event with U.S. Olympian Caroline Marks.  

The Nissan Concert Series will include 12 artists performing full live concerts, including star acts like Smash Mouth, Less Than Jake, The Expendables and Kira Kosarin. Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks. All concerts are free and open to the public.

New to the event this year is a female comedy showcase, a revised format for the surf competition and the Brine Super Girl Beach Lacrosse Tournament.

Empowering women

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 Smash Mouth, Less Than Jake, The Expendables and Kira Kosarin performing and using their voices to help promote Super Girl’s empowerment platform is absolutely incredible. On the surfing side, the U.S. 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. We can’t wait to get back to Jacksonville Beach.”

Event support

The event is supported by the U.S. Air Force, Florida Blue, CSI Companies, CELSIUS, Atlantic Self Storage, White Claw, Gillette Venus, Jolyn, Kroger Delivery, the Courtyard Oceanfront by Marriott, Perfect Hydration, Logitech, Sierra Nevada, The Mayo Clinic, Sambazon, Ithaca Hummus, Sunglass Hut, Day Chaser, Brine Lacrosse and the City of Jacksonville’s Tourist Development Council.

The event is in its 16th year in San Diego and second year in Jacksonville after expanding to the East Coast in 2021. The U.S. Air Force is its new 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 nine years and recognizes that importance of offering athletic, cultural, educational, business and social opportunities for young women in areas where they have been traditionally underrepresented. Elevating the Air Force to the title partner role made so much sense given their long-standing backing of the entire Super Girl Pro Series and the strong military community in Jacksonville.”
