The All Girls Surf Showdown is the longest running all female surfing competition in Australia. The event was established in 1993 and turns 20 years old in 2012. This event promotes girls and women’s participation in the exciting and healthy lifestyle of surfing.
The current top 4 in the world: 4x World Champion Stephanie Gilmore, Tyler Wright, Sally Fitzgibbons and Laura Enever are all past winners of the ‘Open Pro’ division. They are all Aussie surfers who won this event on their way to the top of the sport.
This will be the last year of the event and we hope previous competitors come and compete and/or join in the reunion function and celebrate 20 years of women’s surfing with us all. For the professional surfers who are on the Dream Tour we are planning an expression session.
