Top female athletes are queuing up to compete in the second annual S3 Supergirl Jam, to be held in conjunction with the US Open of Surfing. This all-female action sports contest will hit Huntington Beach from 25-27 July with more than 100 of the world’s top female professionals in surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding competing over three days.
New to the line-up this year is the Supergirl Junior Pro surfing competition. Officially sanctioned by the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP), the Supergirl Junior Pro will be held on Saturday July 26, and will crown the event’s best under-19 female surfer in North America.
The S3 Supergirl Jam is hosted by a committee of four renowned all-action girls including Olympic medalist and pro snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler (Ohio); inline skating’s Fabiola da Silva (Brazil); skateboarding’s Lyn-Z Adams (Calif); and surfing’s Kassia Meador (Calif).
The event is located on Huntington Beach, with 15 tons of snow being shipped onto the beach in July especially for the event! In addition to the three separate surf, skate and snow contests, the event will also feature vert and bowl skateboarding competitions along with inline skating rail jam best trick contests. More than 100,000 spectators are expected to attend the three-day event, which is free to the public each day.
