In a historic and unprecedented decision, the World Surf League (WSL) announced that it will implement an equal prize money deal for men and women in the 2019 pro surfing season.

The organization led by Sophie Goldschmidt becomes the first and only US-based global sports league to adopt a gender equality protocol when it comes to prize money.

“We are thrilled with this huge step forward. We have a long-planned strategy to elevate women’s surfing that also includes getting female athletes on the same quality waves as the men, as well as increased investment and support,” explains Goldschmidt, CEO of WSL.
