It was determined to be an important winter for large wave surfing of women. The skill, experience, and numbers of heavily water-charging women — combined with a movement for true equality around the world — is the ideal combo for women in sports to swell.
The Queen was announced by Red Bull, the first-lady, big-wave event at the famous Vemia Bay on the northern coast of Ohio. A global epidemic had other plans. At the end of the summer, the event’s directors decided to take the plug out of safety concerns.
Can’t be resisted, the organizers went back to the drawing board and came back with an optional event — Red Bull Magnitude — a submission-based competition that maintains women the opportunity to compete in big waves this winter.
Red Bull selected two dozen female Chargers and invited them to push their own range with a purse of $ 40,000 stationed in the airspace, and especially when the female crew stationed in the airplane were in the Pacific Ocean. Calls for women to shoot.
Notably absent from the list is Maya Gabira, who has dedicated herself to riding supernatural waves in Nazi, Portugal.
The judges are three-time Surfer Poll winner, Rochelle Ballard; Pipe, the first woman in the history of Betty Depolito; Multiple XXL Award winners, Mark Healy; And the elite waterman, Kai Lenny.
Contestants will be from December 1 to February 28 to hunt the biggest drops throughout Hawaii. And a large-scale Northwest Swell has already poured into Hawaii to begin the show.
