2009 SUPERGIRL PRO JUNIOR SURF CONTEST LINE-UP ANNOUNCED
THEWB.COM AND GO211 TO STREAM SUPERGIRL JAM CONTESTS LIVE

BURBANK, Calif., August 13, 2009 – When the 2nd Annual Supergirl Pro Junior hits the Oceanside, CA, beach waves this weekend, a $15,000 total prize purse awaits the best of 16 young, female surfers competing in this Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Grade-4 contest. The Supergirl Pro Junior kicks off the 2009 Supergirl Jam event series, the action sports industry’s largest all-female competition and lifestyle festival, featuring more than 100 female pros in surfing, skateboarding, inline skating and snowboarding.

The Supergirl Pro Junior contest draws emerging surfing stars around the world, including Courtney Conlogue (Santa Ana, California), winner of this year's U.S. Open of Surfing Women's Event and the USA gold medalist in the International Surfing Association’s World Surfing Games.

The industry’s best 20-and-under female surfers, all of whom will be looking to take their place atop the 2009 ASP junior rankings in Oceanside, CA, include:

Natalie Marie Anzivino South Bay, California
Jenna Balester Huntington Beach, California
Demi Boelsterli Santa Barbara, California
Meah Collins Costa Mesa, California
Courtney Conlogue Santa Ana, California
Erika Lani Cook Lake Forest, California
Lani Nina-Hili Doherty Maui, Hawaii
Sage Erickson Ventura, California
Kaleigh Gilchrist Newport Beach, California
Rachel Harris Carpinteria, California
Chandler Catherine Parr Santa Monica, California
Taylor Nicole Pitz Laguna Beach, California
Nikita Robb East London, South Africa
Bo Stanley Carpinteria, California
Sara Taylor Boca Raton, Florida
Jasset Umbel Melbourne, Florida

In 2008, Robb, Erickson and Conlogue rounded out the top finishers behind event winner Coco Ho (Oahu, Hawaii) in the first Supergirl Pro Junior contest. All three ladies are hungry for the title, so the excitement and competitive atmosphere will be intense.

This year’s field of competitors and increased prize purse have fired up the anticipation for the Supergirl Pro Junior and its sister events, the Supergirl Pro-Am Jam (August 19, Woodward West) and Supergirl Jam (September 6, Venice Beach, California). To support the international interest in the series, two of the Supergirl Jam’s partners will bring the action to fans via live webcasts and behind-the-scenes video highlights.

TheWB.com, the official online destination for the 2009 Supergirl Jam events and competitions, will bring fans the competitive action of the Supergirl Pro Junior, Supergirl Pro-Am Jam, Snowboard Rail Jam and the Skateboard Street contest via a live webcast on September 6. Fans can also receive breaking news and event updates via Twitter @thewbdotcom.

Additionally, GO211.com, the action sports community that regularly presents live webcasts of major alternative sports events happening around the world, will also stream Supergirl Jam event action. Both webcasts will begin at 11:30 a.m. PST on September 6 and will feature live competition from the Supergirl Jam in Venice Beach and taped programming from Oceanside and Woodward West.
