Two months ago, the World Surf League solved the seemingly impossible-to-crack puzzle of gender, a problem that had vexed governments across the world and had even become the premise of a documentary, “What is a Woman?”
According to the WSL, to be able to compete in the gal’s div all you had to do was behave like a girl for at least twelve months (see world’s most famous woman+ Dylan Mulvaney, below, for a quick how-to) and be low on T for a year, although the WSL said it would rely on an honesty system, self-testing etc.

Now, the famously progressive organisation has continued to shatter boundaries after an Encinitas woman was awarded first place at the Hydro Flask Airshow at Huntington Beach without hitting the sky.
Ella McCaffray, who is nineteen and from the pretty little beach town of Encinitas a little north of San Diego, won $1500 for a “power maneuver (not caught on live)”.
Air shows, as even ChatGPT is gonna tell ya, is an event where “surfers attempt to execute high-flying aerial maneuvers, such as 360-degree spins, flips, and grabs.”
Pleasingly, McCaffray received the same winner’s cheque as Dimitri Poulos, although the Ventura shredder did bang off a legit air.
