ASP Appoints New Women's World Tour Manager
The Association of Surfing Professionals has chosen a new Women's Tour Manager for 2012, surf veteran Jessi Miley-Dyer. Miley-Dyer is thrilled with the new position and is looking forward to a strong year full of exciting competitions.
"We're very pleased to welcome Jessi to the ASP management team as Women's Tour Manager,” Richard Grellman, ASP Executive Chairman, said. “In addition to competing against the world's best over the past six years, Jessi has served as surfers' representative and board member and brings a wealth of experience to the position. We're confident that she'll serve the girls well as we work towards stabilizing and enhancing this dimension of our sport."
Miley-Dyer, a former ASP World Junior Champion and six-year veteran of the elite ASP Women’s World Tour, is excited about transitioning to the head office and working with the world’s best surfers in this new capacity.
"It's an honor to serve the girls on tour right now,” Miley-Dyer said. “I've been following the tour my whole life and can confidently say that we've never had such an incredible mix of talent as we do in 2012. It's an exciting time for women's surfing and I'm looking forward to working with the girls this season."
Miley-Dyer will commence her role as ASP Women’s World Tour manager immediately. The ASP Top 17 will begin the 2012 ASP Women’s World Title season at the Roxy Pro Gold Coast from February 27 to March 7, 2011.

Despite the fantastic surf event in 2011, the ASP World Title Series will not be returning to New York for the 2012 tour. Quiksilver and the ASP regret the event cancellation but fail to expand upon the factors that have resulted in this decision.
When the ASP Top 34 hit Santa Cruz next November, you can expect a slamming demonstration of the world's best surfing. The 2012 O'Neill Cold Water Classic Santa Cruz is an event you won't want to miss.
