Hottest Women Surfers, Beauty Is In the Eye Of The Beholder

Hottest Women SurfersThe hottest women surfers is a very subjective topic, and obviously you and I would have different criteria for what we would consider the hottest women surfers.  My criteria is not just based on physical beauty, but, for me at least and more importantly, is their talent in the water.  These women rip and their surfing is a thing of beauty.  So, without further ado, here are what I think are some of the hottest women surfers.

Stephanie Gilmore

Hottest Women Surfers

Stephanie Gilmore

Is a six-time World Surfing Champion and has dominated the sport of surfing for many years.  She was born in Murwillumbah, New South Wales, Australia on January 29, 1988 and still makes her home in Australia.  She has been a competitor on the WSL, previously known as the ASP, since 2007, and won her first World Surfing Championship during that year.

Her most recent World Surfing Championship came in 2014, when she beat out Tyler Wright for the title.  She was aided in this victory when Carissa Moore took out Tyler Wright in the Target Maui Pro surf contest.  In 2015, due to injury, Ms. Gilmore was not a factor in that year’s championship.  In the 2016 World Surfing Rankings, she is currently rank 5th in the World, and, for her, that is considered a slow start.

She has a graceful and effortless surfing style that is very pleasing to the eye.  She can execute powerful turns but is more known for her smooth, graceful and effortless style.  It will be interesting to see, how this 2016 championship season continues to unfold, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mr. Gilmore rise in the rankings.

Carissa Moore

Carissa Moore

Is a three-time World Surfing Champion and like Stephanie Gilmore has been dominating the sport of surfing since she got onto the World Surfing Tour.  She was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, on August, 27, 1992 and still makes her home in Hawaii.  She is a graduate of Punahou, which is one of the best private schoold in Hawaii.  She entered the World Surfing Tour in 2010, and since that time only she or Stephanie Gilmore have won the World Surfing Championship.

Her most recent World Surfing Championship came in 2015, so she is the reigning and defending World Surfing Champion.  In 2015 she beat out Courtney Conlogue to win her third championship, in that year she finished first in 4 out of the 10 contests held.  She finds herself ranked 3rd in 2016 championship season, finishing 3rd in the first three contests held this season.

Ms. Moore, like Ms. Gilmore, has a graceful surfing style that is intermixed with power.  She is known for her powerful, sweeping turns and is a pleasure to watch.  You can never count out this three-time World Champion and don’t be surprised if she rises through the ranks and wins.

Sally Fitzgibbons

Hottest Women Surfers

Sally Fitzgibbons

Has never won a World Surfing Championships but has finished runner-up in three of those contests.  She was born Gerroa, NSW Australia, on December 19, 1990 and still makes her home in Australia.  She entered the World Surfing Tour in 2009 and has been a consistent and winning performer.

Her last contest win was in 2015 at the Fiji Women’s Pro, she also finished 3rd that year, behind second place finisher Courtney Conlogue and World Champion Carissa Moore.  She is currently ranked 6th in the 2016 World Championship tour, and has a 2nd place finish at the Rip Curl Women’s Pro Bells Beach, she was beaten out by Courtney Conlogue for the title.

I don’t know how exactly to describe Ms. Fitzgibbons surfing style, it is neither the effortless grace of Stephanie Gilmore nor the grace and power of Carissa Moore, however, it is a style that is quite pleasing to the eye.

Sally Fitzgibbons has proven time and time again, that she is not someone you can count out.  Though she is currently ranked 6th in the world, it will be very interesting to see on this 2016 season plays out.

Tyler Wright

Hottest Women Surfers

Tyler Wright

Has never won a World Surfing Championship but has finished in the top 5 since she entered the tour.  She was born in Culburra Beach, New South Wales, Australia, on March 31, 1994 and still makes her home in Australia.  She is the younger sister of Men’s World Surfing Championship tour competitor Owen Wright.

Ms. Wright entered the tour, as a regular competitor, in 2011 and finished runner up to Carissa Moore in 2013 and runner up to Stephanie Gilmore in 2014.  In 2015, she finished 5th but won the Roxy Pro France.  She has started the 2016 championship tour with a bang, she is currently ranked 2nd in the world, winning two (the Roxy Pro Gold Coast and the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro) of the three contests that were held.

Ms. Wright style is all about power and progression, she is one of the few women to perform and complete an aerial in competition.  The other thing that stands out about her, is that she is a very gracious loser (not that the other women mentioned here aren’t), it’s not uncommon to see her applauding her competitor immediately after a heat loss.

This maybe the year for Ms. Wright to win the 2016 World Surfing Championship but it definitely won’t be a cakewalk.

Courtney Conlogue

Courtney Conlogue

Has also never won a World Surfing Championship but finished runner up to Carissa Moore in 2015.  She was born in Santa Ana, California, USA, on August 25, 1992 and still makes her home in California.  She entered the World Surfing Tour in 2011 and consistently finished in the top 10 since she entered the tour.

In 2015 she won 3 out of the 10 contests held that season, the last contest she won in 2015 was the Cascais Women’s Pro.  She also has begun the 2016 championship tour with a bang, and is currently wearing the yellow jersey and is ranked 1st in the world.  She has won one contest (the Rip Curl Women’s Pro Bells Beach) and runner up to Tyler Wright in the other two.

Like Tyler Wright, Ms. Conlogue is known for her power and progression and love of large surf.  She also has a surfing style that is very pleasing to the eye.  She finished 2nd in 2015 and thus far she is ranked 1st in the world, I wouldn’t be surprised if she wins it all, but she has a long, tough road ahead of her.

In Conclusion

My hottest women surfers also happen to be the some of the top female surfers in the World, and that is not a coincidence.  I admire these women for their surfing skill, though they also happen to be beautiful

  1. Totally agree with you the hottest women surfers is a subjective topic, but a great one to discuss. Being an Aussie myself, I feel blessed that we have quite a few stunning beauties, not only on the Pro circuit but surfers in general. It’s a huge past time here and seems to be getting more popular all the time. Nice write up mate.

    • Hi Nigel, You Australians, seem to dominate the World Surfing Tour, both men and women and you definitely have some stunning beauties.

      Thanks for the comments and dropping in!

  2. Great women! These women are awesome. As a man, I must give it to these women. Give them some time and they will dominate the surfing world. I like women who will take up the courage and challenge the men folks. And they are hot and sexy also. My wife will soon join them also.

    • Hi Kevin, I agree, these women are awesome but I don’t think they could compete with the men at this time. I prefer watching the women’s contest but you can’t deny the men’s aerial game plus power moves.

      Thanks for the comments and dropping in!

  3. Hey Stuart

    Great post and it’s nice to see the woman taking the surfing spotlight for a change!

    You have added some fantastic photo’s, but I have to say that the one of Courtney Conlogue tops them all!

    It may be hard to believe, but I grew up 15 minutes from the ocean and never took up surfing… Other than being towed behind a boat on a surfboard that is.

    This is definitely something I am wanting to get into and as soon as I do, I will be sending loads of pics from the surf scene here in South Africa!

    Hope to get some awesome tips from you!

    Cheers,

    Marc Parsons

    • Hi Marc, I can believe you about the surfing thing, prior to taking up surfing in my 40s, I had no interest whatsoever in surfing. I live in Hawaii, the birthplace of surfing.
