I just received an email from Red Bull looking for ladies to step up and conquer the Red Bull Crashed Ice this 2012/2013 season. They are on the search for fearless female athletes. Have you heard of Red Bull Crashed Ice? Check out this video for a crash course! It is the ultimate in Winter sports and is right up there with crazy things Canadians do with snow and ice:) I used to think it was crazy! but after watching it last year it looks like a lot of fun, I just can't skate that well. (that's my excuse anyway).
Being a young aspiring female athlete today is full of great opportunities. I was just checking through my mail this morning and came across an update from Roxy about the latest Champ Camp held by Lisa Anderson. The camp was about helping up and coming female surfers take their surfing to the next level.
From camping in Cardiff to Costa Rica, some of the best amateur girl surfers from Latin America and the US came together for a Lisa Andersen Champ Camp at Playa Negra to push each other and learn from the best.
4x World Champion Lisa Andersen identified the top surfers from a selection of online video entries and gave these “future champs” a one of a kind experience. Special guest Sofia Mulanovich—Latin American legend and previous World Champ—joined Lisa Andersen in Costa Rica to provide hands on coaching, instruction, and video analysis that helped advance the girls’ surfing.
Living the life of a professional surfer seems like a dream come true, however like all things in life nothing is given and these girls had to work hard at the Champ camp. The waves were perfect keeping the stoke high, which is what you need to get up at 5am, get out in the surf for 6am followed by video and one-on-one coaching from Lisa and Sofia. Breakfast didn’t come until 9, and was followed with more surfing and technical analysis and feedback. In the afternoon came cross-training—the future champs practiced yoga and learned the importance of stretching and surf exercises. The daily video review allowed Lisa Andersen to break down everything for the girls and play-back waves and help critique the girls’ surfing. Lisa and Sofia also provided the future champs with media training and interviewing, preparing them for their career as a professional surfer.
The camp was a great success with Nikki Viesins (FL), claiming 2nd place at the East Coast Surfing Championships in the women’s pro division shortly after the Champ Camp and Leilani McGonagle, claiming two national titles in Costa Rica just 5 days after the camp! Plus keep your eyes out for Tatiana Weston-Webb (HI) Surfing America National Champion, Lucia Cosoleto (Argentina), Melanie Guina and Vania Torres who surf for the Peruvian National Team, Leilani Aguirre (Peru), Adela Recordon (Chile) all looking for spots on the tour in the near future.
Whether it is surfing, snowboarding, mountain biking or any other action sport the girls are taking center stage and showing the guys that we are stepping it up. These up and coming girls are holding their own and laying down tricks that the average guy would love to be able to do!! With more Champ camps being held and the older girls providing opportunities for the younger girls I am excited to be apart of the future of Women's Action Sports!
