The 2023 Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro features a world-class field of women looking to stake their claim in Oceanside beginning September 22 - 24.

The Super Girl Surf Pro brings these women and more of North America and Hawaii/Tahiti Nui's best emerging talents alongside veteran standouts to contest for valuable points. But, they also play a key role in helping inspire young women in attendance and across the world with the help of the Super Girl's platform.

"On the surfing side, the Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro powered by CELSIUS is not only a showcase for the top-ranked surfers in the world, but also a springboard to help launch surf careers and provide unmatched mentorship between pros and newcomers," said CEO of ASA Entertainment Rick Bratman, the event's producer.

The 2023 edition will feature the likes of reigning Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro victor Sawyer Lindblad. Lindblad made history as the youngest to win the event at the QS level at age 17. With that result, and an astonishing 2022/2023 QS season, the San Clemente, California, competitor earned her way to the Challengers Series where she currently sits at No. 3 and has a chance to qualify for the 2024 CT.

"It's super cool to be able to defend my title this year in Oceanside," said Lindblad. "It was such a crazy day and winning this event meant a lot. Being able to witness the next generation of young girls coming up is really special. It feels like yesterday when I would go down there and watch my idols."

Also preparing for their opportunity to earn the coveted Super Girl cape, hometown hero Caitlin Simmers (USA) returns following a remarkable rookie season on the CT that pushed her into the Rip Curl WSL Finals. But, Lindblad and Simmers will have to take on the hungry field of women including former event winner Sage Erickson, former CT competitor Luana Silva, Zoe Benedetto, Bella Kenworthy, Zoe McDougall, Kirra Pinkerton, Brianna Cope, and many more.
