It’s a new year, bringing new beginnings to the ASP World Tour. Jessi Miley-Dyer has been named ASP Women’s World Tour Manager, effective immediately. But this Aussie is no stranger to the ASP World Tour. She’s already been involved in the ASP for six years as a competitor on the Women’s World Tour.

“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.”

She’s already proven that
she has plenty of talent to spread her around. Jessi also won the 1999
Australian National Title in Snowboarding and received a scholarship to study

With events like the prestigious Van’s Triple Crown of Surfing being cut from the women’s tour, it’s a good time to have an advocate for women’s surfing on the board.
