Description
Although competitive surfing has its place, it’s still a blast to see the best Tour surfers ditch their jerseys and thrusters and experiment a little. Case in point is this just under two minute Dimity Stoyle edit. I can’t get enough of the smooth lines she draws on a short single fin. In Dimity’s own words… “This is a new model single fin I helped design with MS Surfboards and it’s the best Summer board EVER!!!!”

Chelsea Williams Wins ASP World Longboard Title in China

WANNING, Hainan/CHINA (Tuesday, December 9, 2014) – Chelsea Williams (AUS) has defeated Kelia Moniz (HAW) to claim her maiden ASP Women’s World Longboard Title at the GoPro World Longboard Championships, China hosted by Wanning (WLC). Near perfect 3 to 4 foot surf provided the perfect canvas for the world’s best longboarders to fight for the sport’s ultimate prize, but it was Williams, the form surfer of the event who was the last one standing.

Remarkably Moniz and Williams have met in the final of the GoPro WLC four years in a row, proving that these two athletes really are on top of world at the moment. Their friendly rivalry sees them now at two wins a piece in the Final in China.

Williams’ win today was a long time coming after finishing runner-up to the ASP World Longboard Title four times. In the first half of today’s Final Williams was struggling to adapt to the conditions and it seemed her fifth runner-up finish was minutes away, but the Gold Coast surfer struck and did some of the best nose riding of the whole event mixed with rail carves. Moniz caught a last minute wave, but just missed out on the required score, leaving Williams out the back to ride her wave in as an ASP World Longboard Champion.

“Did that just happen? I can’t believe it!” Williams said. “I’ve wanted to win a World Longboard Title since I found out it existed. For a long time people have been telling me I deserve to win, now I finally believe them. I’m so happy and thankful for the support of my family, friends and sponsors. It was an awesome Final, Kelia (Moniz) is so good, we have a fun rivalry going and I’m glad that I got her back.”

Moniz is a two-time ASP World Longboard Champion after winning this event the past two years and today after losing by a mere 0.02 *** she was gracious in defeat. Moniz finished the event with the highest wave score, and highest heat total from her Round 1 heat, and hinted that her and Williams’ rivalry wasn’t over yet.

“If it wasn’t me winning there’s no one I’d rather see win than Chelsea (Williams),” Moniz said. “She’s a great surfer, she scored a 9 in the final and deserved to win. I’m not too disappointed, it would have been nice to win again — Chelsea and I can just meet in the Final again next year.”

Lindsay Steinriede (USA), 2011 ASP World Longboard Champion used her graceful and polished brand of surfing to advance into the Semifinals where she ran into a rampaging Williams. Steinriede was the last natural footed surfer left in the draw when she won her Quarterfinal and advanced into the Semis and leaves the 2014 GoPro WLC ranked equal 3rd in the world.

“That was the most fun I’ve ever had in a heat and I lost!” Steinriede said. “I’ve got so much respect for Chelsea’s surfing and who she is as a person, with either one of us getting into the Final I was happy. I’m really happy to have made the Semifinals and to get that far in the event the fact that we had really good waves also feels good.”

Chloe Calmon (BRA) lost out in an action packed Semifinal against Moniz meaning the young Brazilian exits the event ranked equal 3rd in the world. Calmon has worked extremely hard and has improved on her 5th place finish from last year. She was one of the most interesting and exciting surfers to watch all event long, but she let her nerves get the best of her in the Semifinals.

“I had an incredible event, but I still wanted to go further,” Calmon said. “I improved on my position from last year which was my goal so I’m happy, but losing so close to the Semifinal did make me a little sad after the heat — I’m happy now. It just wasn’t my time to be in the final and I’m going to try and come back and go bigger and better next year.”

It’s highly likely that the men’s 2014 ASP World Longboard Champion will be crowned tomorrow.

Single Wave Thursday featuring Kassia Meador on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine

Kassia Meador – Single Wave Thursday. One Ride, No Music, Just Surfing.


One thing I’ve noticed about many of my favorite surfers is how they can jump on just about any type of equipment and skillfully ride waves without missing a beat. Longboard stylist, Kassia Meador, is one of those multi-faceted surfers who can surf anything from a high-performance thruster, to a retro-styled twin fin, to a traditional single fin log. I’m not sure if she still rides them, but a number of years back, Kassia began riding a thin, finless, wooden board known as an Alaia.


If you’ve ever seen someone surf an Alaia, you’ll quickly realize that it is a completely different way to ride waves. I’ve seen many people give it a go, only to return to the sand deflated that they either couldn’t catch a wave or the ones they did catch resulted in wipeout after wipeout. For those who push through the initial challenges, however, the reward is a feeling of unadulterated speed, glide, slide, and freedom. On this particular wave in Encinitas a few years back, Kassia Meador glides into a fun, lined-up, glassy left. It’s really fun to watch the nuances that come into play on finless boards—case in point, the subtle drifting Kassia employs as she heads into her 360-degree spin. Landing a floater on an Alaia is no easy task, but Kassia effortlessly pulls one off to finish her ride.


Thank you for stopping by for another installment of Single Wave Thursday. As always, thank you for your support of Jettygirl. None of this would be possible without you, our dear readers.

La Maestra, a surf film documentary about a young Mexican teacher by Elizabeth Pepin Silva and Paul Ferraris

La Maestra (The Teacher) – Surf Film Needs Your Help


Our friends, Elizabeth Pepin Silva and Paul Ferraris, need your help to complete “La Maestra,” a wonderful surf documentary about a young Mexican teacher who is inspiring both her students and the local community.

Co-Producer/Director, Elizabeth Pepin Silva explains why this is not your typical surf documentary:

“Surf movies are filmed all over the world, but usually it’s Americans, Australians, and/or Europeans traveling to exotic locals and talking about what they are seeing, and it’s rare that the filmmakers bother to interview the local people who are born and raised in these locations or capture their daily experiences of living and surfing there year-round. La Maestra (The Teacher) is unique in that it’s a story about a local woman, told entirely in Spanish with English subtitles, through our character’s own voice, not the voices of outsiders. Our cameras follow Mayra throughout her day, giving viewers a rare glimpse into the life of this young Mexican teacher and surfer who was born and continues to live and work in her tiny, remote village. La Maestra (The Teacher) is an important film because it features a strong Latina woman role model that will appeal to everyone. There is no surf media hype, no surf company sponsors, and no surf industry to spoil the soul of this film, but it also means we have to raise the money entirely on our own. So please donate if you have not done so.”

Please donate here. Amounts as small as one dollar will help this film get completed.
