"Banzai Betty" the Promoter

Betty Depolito has run the Women's Pipeline Pro for 22 years. Now, that's dedication and tenacity because there is always a lot of wrangling to get a permit and date for a surfing contest, especially at Pipeline. In the beginning, the event was just for bodyboarders, but Betty opened it up to board riders 6 years ago. Her philosophy: "Keep the contest open to any girl who wants to surf so she has an opportunity to get ratings". Banzai Betty also has women's sports show called "Flhigirlz" at See: "Shows" and check it out.
