S3 SUPERGIRL JAM ANNUAL EVENT in HUNTINGTON BEACH

All-Female Action Sports Festival, Free and Open to the Public All Weekend
 

More than 100 of the world’s most stylish and talented women in action sports will return this summer to compete in the highly anticipated Second Annual S3 Supergirl Jam. The unique three-day event featuring surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding competitions will run in conjunction with the 2008 Honda U.S. Open of Surfing and is guaranteed to be jam-packed full of fun extras.

The S3 Supergirl Jam will again be hosted by a committee of four talented female athletes that possess the qualities of a Supergirl “actionista.” They are Gretchen Bleiler (snow), Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins (skate), Kassia Meador (surf) and Fabiola da Silva (inline). The public is encouraged to come out and enjoy a free, family-friendly, public beach fair that will feature free skateboarding clinics for girls of all ages, autograph sessions, sponsor tents and live music.


Featuring Female Skateboard and Snowboard Rail Jam Competitions For the second consecutive year the S3 Supergirl Jam-the Action Sports Industry's largest female-only Action Sports event-hits the beaches of Southern California, this time in the shadows of the legendary Huntington Beach Pier. Surf City here we come!

It's only fitting that the Pier will host over 100 of the World's best female action sports stars July 25-27 as the S3 Supergirl Jam hits the beach in conjunction with the 2008 Honda U.S. Open of Surfing.

Top female skateboarders, snowboarders, inline skaters and surfers from all over the world will come together in Huntington Beach to shred a vert ramp, street course and a bowl (a new element for this year), alongside a Snowboard Rail (Yes, we're bringing snow to HB). In addition to all the on-shore action, the Supergirl Junior Pro, officially sanctioned by the ASP, will crown the event's top 18 year-old or younger female surfer.

Skateboarders Cara-Beth Burnside, Mimi Knoop, Vanessa Torres, Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins, and Lacey Baker are expected to participate alongside Snowboarders Jamie Anderson and Chanelle Sladics and Inline Skate legend Fabiola da Silva. With ramps, rails, snow and waves, the S3 Supergirl Jam will bring together the best elements of Action Sports right on Huntington Beach, celebrating the progression of women in Action Sports. Pack your sunblock, load up a cooler, and get ready for an action-packed weekend.

Make no mistake, the S3 Supergirl Jam is no sideshow novelty act. These ladies are the real deal. In 2007 we saw eight-foot airs and backflips on the vert ramp from Fabiola da Silva, tré flips on the street course from Lacey Baker, as well as a host of ladies shredding the snowboard rail in a best trick competition. 2008 is shaping up to be even better with the addition of a bowl competition and the Supergirl Junior Pro surfing event. As if that weren't enough, there will be musical performances from some great, all-female bands, including The Donnas and Clique Girlz. On your way to the stage, take a walk through the interactive village of female-inspired activities, including Skate clinics, autograph signings, and sponsor booths. There's something for everyone at the S3 Supergirl Jam.

The S3 Supergirl Jam is completely free to the public, so join us in Huntington Beach July 25-27 as we crown the 2008 Supergirls!
