This year’s field of young women surfers is the youngest in the event’s history with girls as young as 11-years-old in WSL jerseys charging Oceanside Pier waves. WSL Coordinator of Tours and Competitions Kayla Durden helped coordinate this year’s WSL Rising Tides, which is designed to inspire more young girls to enter the line ups.
“The new generation of women surfers is here,” said Durden. “The younger girls on the Qualifying Series are pushing surfing to higher and higher levels and not backing down from some of the more veteran competitors.”
Also earning clutch Round of 96 victories, Alana Lopez (USA), Mia McLeish (USA), Mathea Dempfle-Olin (CAN), Lily Pierce (USA), Audrey Denos (USA), Olivia Storrer (USA), Candelaria Resano (NIC), Tiare Thompson (USA), Bailey Turner (USA), Vaihitimahana Inso (HAW), Zoe Chait (USA), and Avery McDonald (USA) all move into the Round of 64 and await clashes with some of the region’s best in the Round of 64.
Event organizers will reconvene at 7:30 a.m. PDT for an 8:00 a.m. PDT start to competition.
