Titans Of Mavericks Surf Competion By Daryn O'Malley

At the Titans Of Mavericks Surf competition in California women will be competing for the first time. This contest has gone on since the late 1990’s and no woman has ever competed.

The Committee Five is a group of five people that run the epic surf competition and they have yet to decide when the one day surf competition will take place.

However, they do know that it will be between now and March 31st. The competition consists of twenty four surfers, six of which are female.

The female competitors are Sarah Gerhardt, Emily Erickson. Paige Alms, Keala Kennelly, Jamilah Star and Andrea Moller.

This is Bianca Valenti, the first alternate surfer. This means that if any of the surfers cannot compete, she will be the first one to replace them.

A member of the contest board, Casandra Clark, says that women have always been allowed to compete, but no woman has been invited until now. The competition is invitation only. The prize is thirty thousand dollars. I think this competition will break down a wall for other female surfers in the future.
