There are lots of lady-centric surf events happening this weekend, starting with the Bing/Seea Women’s Logger Pro in Malibu that was held today. I don’t really follow contests, but I found this short & sweet clip of one of the ladies who made the final, Taylor Nelson:
My favorite “contest” in the world is Sisters of the Sea in Jacksonville, Fl. It’s called a contest, but really its just a fun day hanging at the beach with about a hundred women and girls all day. The proceeds of the event go to funding breast cancer research or to supporting local women in need.

NY is hosting its first ever women’s surf film festival called Women of the Seven Seas, presented by Lava Girl Surf.
The festival will showcase women who are carving their own paths through the world of surfing with a decidedly female poise and style. From the story of Belinda Baggs and her board, Evo, finding its way back into the hands of its creator, Wayne Lynch, in Australia, to the travels of three Latin Americans and one Kiwi with the world champion Sofia Mulanovich from Peru, the films highlight these women’s passion for the ocean and riding the wave — and show that they can rip!
Doors Open: 7:00PM. Films: 7:45PM.
Ticket Price: $10. Tickets can be purchased at: www.womenofthesevenseas.eventbrite.com
