Jessi Miley-Dyer: surfer girls' boss

Jessi Miley-Dyer has been announced the new ASP Women’s World Tour manager. The 25-year-old pro surfer and six-year veteran of the elite ASP Women’s World Tour will lead the female fleet.

"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, a former ASP World Junior Champion, will be transitioning to the head office and working with the world’s best surfers in this new capacity. "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."

Jessi Miley-Dyer was born on the 29th May 1986, in Paddington, NSW, Australia. The goofy-footer started surfing at the age of eight and won the Australasian Pro Junior Surfing Titles in 2005.
