First of all, let me say how stoked I am that Chris Grant asked me to do this. It has been a long time since I’ve written anything power-rankings-esque and as a student and fanatic of the sport of surfing I have to say I miss it. Truth be told, I’m writing these things in my head already regardless of whether they get published or not. The saddest thing is that Surfline cut me off right when the tour started to get interesting. That said, this has to be the most dynamic lineup of female surfers we’ve seen to date. I do not mean to take anything away from Lisa or Layne or Margo...

People tell you to live in the now. I'm living in the now, I enjoy my life, why would I not… I am a professional surfer. It can be the best job in the World! I am also in the midst of running an event for the second year in a row with my mate and Pro surfer Amee Donohoe. The local community is providing awesome support. The local businesses and media are into it and back our passion to pass onto people our love for not just female surfing but surfing in general. With 120 girls last year entered and some cool happenings this year you should come along to the RA Girls Surf Show.
The ASP released the 2012 Women's World Tour schedule and it looks close to identical to the 2011 version. A couple of observations... Overall prize money offered in 2012 is $770,000, down slightly from the $800,000 offered in 2011. Hawaii is once again a glowing omission from the schedule...
It was a shame to watch the world title decided with hops, skips and slides in France instead of with big sweeping turns and deep barrels in Hawaii's blue walls of consequence. Please, please...one of you big clothing brands who have raked in millions and millions of dollars promoting the image of women's...
Young Hawaiian surfer Malia Manuel went on a tear through the final European leg of the ASP Women's Star series and walked away with wins at both the Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro and the Billabong Women's Azores Island Pro. Her two victories secured a coveted spot on the ASP Women's World Tour in 2012.
We at Jettygirl have been fans of Malia's surfing for quite some time and look forward to seeing her mix it up with the rest of the Top 17 in 2012. Congrats Malia!

After 4 months on the road, Pauline Ado was finally back at home for the 6th event of the ASP Women Tour. With her 9th place at the ASP ranking and only 10 girls keeping their spot on the tour, this event was a unique opportunity to secure her qualification for next season.
Despite this real stressful situation, Pauline managed to get the best result of her young career on a WT event with an amazing 3rd place which almost assures her to be part of the WT in 2012. After defeating Lee-Ann Curren (FRA) in Round4 and Silvana...
