It's that time of year - Vans Girls Combi is almost here! This is one of our absolute favorite contests of the year (it's on it's 8th year!) and so fun to see the female amateurs and pro's compete in this iconic pool. Last year the prize purse was equal to the men's for the first time ever ($65,000) and this year is more of the same except it got even bigger it's a $68,000 prize purse! Huge thanks to Vans for doing this!!
