The second event in the 3rd Annual Supergirl Jam takes place on Wednesday, August 19, at Woodward West action sports camp in Tehachapi, California—the Supergirl Pro-Am Jam Skateboard Street contest. The Pro-Am Jam is the new contest added this year to the Supergirl Jam, the action sports industry's only large-scale, all-female action sports competition and lifestyle festival, featuring more than 100 female pros in surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and inline skating. Designed to support female empowerment, creativity, independence and strength, the Supergirl Jam provides these young ladies with a platform on which to showcase their skills and infuse the action sports industry with new talent. The Supergirl Pro-Am Jam lends itself specifically to that goal.
Not only is a prize purse of $7,000 up for grabs at the Supergirl Pro-Am Jam, the top amateur will receive entry into the Supergirl Jam finale event at Venice Beach on Sunday, September 6 in the pros' Skateboard Street contest where more than $15,000 in cash and prizes is at stake.
To date, the following pros and amateurs are currently scheduled to compete in the Supergirl Pro-Am Jam:
Abisha Alshebaiki (Temecula, California) Abby Zsarnay
Elizabeth Nitu (Los Gatos, California) Taylor Beatty
Leticia Bufoni (Hollywood, California) Amanda Castillo
