O’Neill Girls sponsors second jewel of Vans Triple Crown

In 1974 Hawaii’s Laura Blears single-handedly took on an all-male field at Sunset Beach in the Smirnoff Pro, essentially changing the face of pro surfing. After Blears’ appearance at Sunset Beach, women became a regular feature of the North Shore when the first organized world tour culminated in Hawaii in 1977.

Fast forward to 2010 and Sunset Beach is again playing a role in the history of women’s pro surfing. O’Neill is stepping up to sponsor the second jewel of the 2009 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. In addition, the O’Neill World Cup of Surfing Sunset Beach is the penultimate contest of the women’s Championship Tour.

Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Executive Director Randy Rarick is excited about the
O’Neill World Cup of Surfing Sunset Beach event and the future of women’s professional surfing.
