Oceanside, Calif. -- Many of the world's top female surfers converged on the waves of Oceanside this weekend to compete in the Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro.  The event's big show of talent overcame the small waist-high waves by delivering rooster-tailed cutbacks and crowd-pumping aerials despite the less than ideal conditions of 1-3 foot waves.

The final day of competition saw Hawaiians Coco Ho and Tatiana Weston-Webb meeting in the semifinals, while Brazil's Silvana Lima took on Californian Sage Erickson.  Sage was able to fend off the high-flying Brazilian to advance to the finals where she faced 18-year-old Weston-Webb.  In the end, Erickson earned 12 points in the final heat to edge out Weston-Webb by 1.5 points and claimed her second Supergirl Pro victory in 3 years.

Sage Erickson's win capped off the three day event that saw enthusiastic crowds that packed the beach while more watched from the Oceanside pier.  Although the ASP Qualifying Series event is the largest women's surf competition in the world, it maintained an intimate community feel with top competitors taking the time to meet their fans and sign autographs well after their heats had ended to the delight of many young supporters.

With the positive turnout in and out of the water, the 2014 Supergirl Pro continued to showcase the world's surfing talent to a growing fan base.
