Silvana Lima Wins Port Taranaki Pro in New Zealand

TARANAKI, New Zealand (Sunday, 4th May, 2014) – Silvana Lima (Brazil) has torn through the star studded field to claim victory at the ASP 6-Star Qualifying Series (QS) Port Taranaki Pro on the final day of the New Zealand Home Loans Surf Festival. Hundreds of surf fans lined the shores at Fitzroy Beach, Taranaki to watch a selection of the world’s best female surfers battle for all-important ASP QS ranking points and prize-money in reeling three foot (1 metre) lefts and rights.

Lima was sitting in 2nd place with only three minutes left of the 30 minute final, she chased down a left and unloaded a barrage of tight and technical turns, the wave scored an 8.00 and Lima stole the win from Laura Enever’s grasp. Lima was on the Samsung Galaxy ASP Women’s World Championship Tour for seven years until re-occurring knee injuries saw her drop off last year but the innovative Brazilian is back to her best and on track for a return in 2015 after claiming No. 1 spot on the ASP QS rankings.

“I haven’t been in a Final for three years because of my injured knee and it feels so good to be back,” Lima said. “This has been a great event for me, I don’t like the cold but I love New Zealand. I just really want to thank everyone at this event and everyone who has supported me. I’m getting closer to being back on the WCT next year, I just need to stay fit and focused.”

Laura Enever (North Narrabeen, NSW/AUS) was on fire in her Quarterfinal and Semifinal clashes, attacking the lip with speed, power and flair and netting excellent scores for her troubles. In the Final it looked like she had the win, sitting in 1st place with only three minutes to go, but was leapfrogged by Lima. Enever had one last chance, taking off on a nice wave with four seconds remaining on the clock, she fell on her second turn and handed victory to Lima.

“I’ve been trying to search for that competitive fire that I used to have and I feel like I found it today,” Enever said. “I used to make a lot of Finals, but I lost the flair or fire and it feels so great to be posting good scores and surfing good heats again. It would have been good to come away with the win but Silvana (Lima) got me in the end.”

Sage Erickson (CA, USA) lost out to Lima in the Semifinals finishing the event with her second 3rd place finish on the ASP QS for 2014. Erickson now moves into fourth on the ASP QS rankings and has her eyes firmly focussed on reclaiming a spot on the ASP WCT.

“It’s a long season ahead, I definitely feel good about this one,” Erickson said. “Semifinals is a really good result, I lost in my first heat in Manly and then made the Semis in Newcastle. It’s a little bittersweet, I want to do one heat better and get into the final and I would really like to solidify that spot on the WCT for next year. I knew that Silvana (Lima) was going to be tough competition, she’s just so good in beach breaks and small conditions so I knew it was going to be tough and I’ll just take this one on the chin and hopefully go one better in the next event.”

Tatiana Weston-Webb (Hawaii), who won the Chain Resources Pro Junior two days ago had to settle for 3rd place in the Port Taranaki Pro after she was eliminated by a red-hot Enever in the Semifinals. Weston-Webb was one of the in-form surfers of the event, consistently posting big scores with her fast and powerful brand of surfing.

“I came into this event trying to have fun and that’s what I did,” Weston-Webb said. “I really want to make a QS final, so that’s my goal for 2014. My first two events weren’t too good, so this event I really wanted to try and get a good result and now I have a lot more confidence going into the other events. Hopefully I’ll make the WCT but we’ll see. I’m stepping in for Courtney Conlogue as an injury replacement because I finished last year as an alternate so I’m going to the Rio WCT after this.”

For Immediate Release

Tatiana Weston-Webb Wins Chain Resources Pro Junior in Taranaki, New Zealand

TARANAKI, New Zealand (Friday, 2nd May, 2014) – Hawaii’s Tatiana Weston-Webb has taken out the Chain Resources Pro Junior, part of the New Zealand Home Loans Surf Festival, over Chelsea Tuach (Barbados) in an exciting day of Finals surfing. The surf was inconsistent, but with peeling clean two foot (0.6 metre) waves rolling into contest site at Fitzroy beach, the decision was made to finish the women’s ASP Australasia Junior Qualifying Series event. The Semifinals were a truly international affair with surfers from New Zealand, Barbados, Hawaii and South Africa filling the final four spots, but it was Weston-Webb who reigned supreme to claim US$1,369 prize-money.

Weston-Webb, runner-up at last year’s ASP World Junior Championships in Brazil started the day by getting revenge on New Zealand’s Ella Williams, who defeated her in the final last October. Weston-Webb eliminated the local reigning ASP World Junior Champion and built from there, linking solid searing turns and clocking excellent scores all the way to the top step of the podium.

“It was a really good day today,” Weston-Webb said. “There were some tough heats with not many waves but luckily Chelsea (Tuach) and I had some really good waves in the Final. My main focus here is the 6-Star QS so there was no pressure on me in the Pro Junior, I just went out there and had fun and it seemed to work. Ever since Ella (Williams) beat me in Brazil last year I’ve been wanting to get her back, so I was really happy after that heat. She’s surfing really well at the moment so it gave me confidence to get on a roll and win.”

Chelsea Tuach (Barbados) was one of the most consistent surfers at the Chain Resources Pro Junior, winning heats and posting big scores seemingly with ease. Tuach had a knack for putting herself on the best waves of the heat by out positioning her counterparts. All event long she was executing sharp and vertical snaps, but in the Final Tuach was left chasing a 9.15 that never came and was forced to settle for 2nd place.

“It was tough and inconsistent at times today so I tried to get a good score as early as possible in all my heats,” Tuach said. “In the final I paddled into a great wave and I don’t know what happened, maybe I got too executed, but I blew it. I ended up getting a couple of okay scores, but congrats to Tatiana (Weston-Webb), she surfed great and she deserved the win.”

Sarah Mason was New Zealand’s highest placed surfer, finished equal 3rd after being eliminated by Weston-Webb in the Semifinals. Mason was looking like the one to beat on finals day, consistently posting excellent score, but couldn’t get past the in-form Hawaiian.

Keely Andrew (Sunshine Coast, QLD/AUS) lost out in the Quarterfinals, but despite her uncharacteristically early exit she has retained the No. 1 spot on the ASP Australasia Women’s JQS ranking’s. Andrew will head into the final event as the favourite to claim the prestigious ASP Australasia Junior Championship.

The ASP 6-Star Qualifying Series Port Taranaki Pro and the men’s Chain Resources Pro Junior were called off for the day and will crown event champions over the weekend.

ASP Australasia Women’s JQS Top 5
1 – Keely Andrew
2 – Bronte Macaulay

Description:
We’ve decided it’s time to unlock the video vault and showcase some of the sessions that have gone down in front of our lenses over the years. The video size may be small and standard definition (*glorious 480p, haha) but the spirit of the sessions back then were most definitely high-def, vibrant and in full color.

If it hadn’t have been for two individuals, Kyla Langen and Kassia Meador, Jettygirl would never have become a reality. At the time, Kyla was living in Carlsbad while Kassia Meador had recently moved to Oceanside. These two homes would become the focal points as some of the best female surfers in the world would stop by and visit during the summers. Each morning I’d wake up to pre-social media text messages and phone calls about how the waves were and where the session was going to happen.

It could just be the Oceanside area itself, but I see less and less of these surf sessions where groups of women get together and push the limits at one particular break. All of these surfers were complete individuals but there was enough cohesiveness as a group for people on the beach to feel the energy of women’s (shortboard) surfing being pushed forward one ride at a time, even on a junky summer day like the one in this clip.

Well, enough chatter on my part. I hope you enjoy the first of many Jettygirl Time Machine surf sessions …good rides, wipeouts, smiles, and everything else that makes an average day at the beach something special.

Danielle Burt: Chapter Two

Description:
In the summer of 2004 Danielle Burt was involved in a motorcycle accident that left her with collapsed lungs, dozens of broken bones, six weeks in a coma, and ultimately, the loss of her right leg. After a lengthy healing and recovery process, Danielle’s heart turned toward the ocean. After gathering some spare parts to create a functional “surf leg,” she caught her first waves and was immediately hooked on surfing. Danielle Burt: Chapter Two celebrates an incredibly positive human being, a great surfer, and a hero to virtually everyone she meets.

“Whomp-O-Rama” encuentro con Christine Brailsford. Entrevista y fotos del evento.

Whomp-O-Rama Encuentro con Christine Brailsford – Fotos de Chris Grant / Jettygirl.com

Aun no me puedo recordar donde o cuando fue que por primera vez escuche acerca de los eventos Whop-O-Rama, pero si tuviera que adivinar probablemente diría que fue a través del “PAIPO debote”, Glenn Sakamoto de la revista Liquid Salt Magazine. En los 70′ recuerdo que tratamos de utilizar nuestras sandalias como “Handplanes” para correr las olas, fuera de esta experiencia no he tenido la oportunidad de experimentar esta modalidad de “Handplanes”. Realmente no tengo idea de que esperar de este evento.

En el momento en que llegue a la playa en Leucadia, descubrí un gran grupo de personas amantes de la diversión de todas las edades; compartiendo las olas del mar con sus diferentes y muy originales equipos “rides” para una sección que se me hace difícil renombrar. Hace ya un mes de esta dia y aun puedo escuchar las carcajadas de risa y ver las sonrisas de las personas. Si en algún momento descubres uno de estos eventos ya sea por Facebook o en algún otro de los medios, no lo pienses, ya que es garantizado que te divertirás en grande.

Para tener una mejor idea de lo que es Whomp-O-Rama, nos encontramos con su propietario Christine Brailsford ( en la siguiente foto) para conocer su opinión del evento.

Christine Brailsford, Whomp Handplanes.  Photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine.

Jettygirl: A diferencia de algunas corporaciones que respaldan las demostraciones en la playa (beach demos), los Whomp-O-Rama tienen una forma peculiar, distinta y mucho mas relajada. Durante el evento no se escucho un comentario negativo, ningún mal de ojo, o ambiente hostil en lo absoluto; por el contrario fue muy agradable el poder ver a todas las personas sonriendo, compartiendo las olas y aclamándose los uno a otros. Dígannos un poco mas acerca de este dia.
Christine Brailsford: Admito que me encontraba nerviosa unos días previos al evento. Según el reporte del tiempo parecía ser que estaría nublado, sin olas y con vientos en dirección a la costa ( onshore). Con mis dedos cruzados tome la decisión de realizar el evento. En la mañana del evento las condiciones amanecieron perfectas con marea alta, sin viento y un oleaje de 3-5 pies con secciones buenísimas y tubos. Un maravilloso grupo de “whompers” se presento para probar sus tablas, tomar fotos y pasarla bien. Traje algunos “paipos” ( bellyboards) y “handplanes” (tabla de mano) de demostración, para todas las personas presentes. Fue muy agradable ver muchas caras conocidas y nuevas en el agua; surfiando y compartiendo las olas. Durante varias horas nos adueñamos de este punto de la playa- todo el mundo riéndose a carcajadas y apoyándose a gritos los unos otros. Definitivamente fue un dia memorable.

Podemos observar una gran variedad de ‘handplanes” con diferentes diseños y formas. Debido a que estos Handplanes son muy pequeños y poseen una reducida área, nos interesa saber si de alguna manera se puede notar la diferencia en los diferentes modelos y formas de estos “handplanes” al correr las olas o si es solo parte de la estética de estos?
Usando un handplane puedes coger olas fácilmente y proyectarte en la ola mucho mas rápido. Existen muchas variantes al momento de escoger el “Handplane” apropiado para las diferentes condiciones. El mayor enfoque de mis “Handplanes”, es su flexibilidad. La flexibilidad te permite girar con una mayor naturalidad, como si estuvieras haciendo bodysurfing, sin usar un “handplane”. El diseño de las colas (tails), materiales y forma contribuyen a su flexibilidad. Las diferencias en tamaños trabajan de misma forma que en las tablas de surf.

• Las grandes (18″-19″) trabajan bien en olas grandes o en personas de gran tamaño.
• Las medianas (14″-15″) trabajan bien en la mayoría de las condiciones y corredores.
• Las pequeñas (11″ o menos) son buenas para olas tubulares. También funcionan para los niños.

Un Paipo es probablemente el mas veloz artefacto para correr las olas. Es muy parecido a un “Bodyboard” al momento de coger las olas, pero muy distinto en otras cosas. En lugar de flotar sobre la superficie de la ola, estos tienen bordes duros que se entierran en la ola. Esto ayuda a generar velocidad de planeación. Sus bordes actúan como una quilla que te permita controlar los giros en la parte baja de la ola. La parte de abajo de mis Paipos tienen un cóncavo singular y un laminado en la parte superior de la tabla. El tamaño de estos se basa en la estatura, peso y habilidad del corredor.

Para las personas que le interese ponerse en contacto con ustedes para ordenar “Handplanes” hechos a mano, cual es el proceso a seguir tomando en cuenta que cada uno de estos es único?
Si están interesados en obtener un “Handplane” o un Paipo hecho a la medida o de los que tenemos en inventario nos pueden contactar a través de nuestro correo electrónico at whomphandplanes@gmail.com y para mas información acerca de ordenes, preguntas generales o listas de tiendas locales donde pueden conseguirlos. También pueden echarle un ojo a mis tablas y a mi trabajo, en el portal de la Internet whomphandplanes.tumblr.com.

Algún comentario final, o alguna influencia?
Quiero agradecer a todos por su apoyo continuo. Estoy muy feliz de poder compartir lo que hago con otras personas. Muchas gracias desde lo mas profundo de mi corazón :).

Single Wave Thursday with Silvana Lima. One Ride, No Music, Just Surfing.

Silvana Lima is the only person we’ve ever seen that other surfers, both guys and girls, get out of the water to watch her surf. On this day in Southern California, the Brazilian surfer lit up the place with huge frontside snaps and creative frontside airs. Although injured throughout the majority of 2012, we have our fingers crossed that Silvana will be back in the water turning heads in 2013. Single Wave Thursday. One ride, no music, just surfing.

Dear Surf Industry,

You missed one.

The girl on the virtually sticker-less purple board is one of the best surfers I’ve ever seen. If you don’t believe me, believe the legendary Jay Adams who I could hear whistling loudly after the first wave of her session featured a huge hook, a fins-free blast, a clean roundhouse, and a solid frontside air.

Next time you’re calculating budgets and going over pie charts for your lifestyle surfers, perhaps you can carve out a slice for a surfer who actually blows minds instead of kisses.

Sincerely,

A fan of Dimity Stoyle

When surfing is broken down to its simplest form, the common denominator we all share is that it’s fun, pure fun. Facing an onshore closeout, this happy Hawaiian chucked her board up and jumped over the falls with an aloha-filled smile that warmed this particular photographer’s heart. At this 1/1000th of a second in world history, the true meaning of surfing was never clearer. Kamalehua Keohokapu, surfer.

Today I was able to shoot with one of Transworld SURF’s Hottest Girls in Pro Surfing. Had I known of the honor bestowed upon her by making the list, I certainly would have offered my congratulations. Then again, when stacked up against her drive and training for a world title, her amazing painting skills, her deep love of books, her selfless desire to help out with charitable causes, and the absolutely professional way she carries out her duties as an athlete and role model, I don’t think the “hottest girl” thing would rank very high on her list of accomplishments.

Courtney Conlogue, turning heads in a way that any true surfer can appreciate, by laying down a solid turn on a solid wave.

About Calavera Swimwear’s Limited Edition Suit, “The Evie”

Swimwear brand Calavera is announcing the new, limited edition version of our best-selling Glam suit, the “Evie.” Requested by and named for one of our fearless and feminine Calavera Team surfers, Evie Johnstone, this suit features a chic two-tone black and white twist top and a string bottom with interchangeable black and white strings.

“I love that the company really brings in its riders as part of the design and development process,” said Evie of the new suit. “I actually got the idea of a two-toned suit while at my local beach in Costa Rica. Playa Hermosa’s beaches have black sand, and when the white water from the waves washes up, it creates a strong visual contrast. I spend so much time in my Calavera suits, and I am beyond stoked to have one that is named after me!”

Inspired by the very beaches where Calavera suits are rigorously tested, the “Evie” will launch on the Calavera website in early November 2012. Customers can mix-and-match it with any top or bottom from the collection. This limited edition suit (only 50 pieces total) is available at the Glam line’s regular MSRP.
