The Best Female Action Sports Athlete ESPY Award is an annual award honoring the achievements of a female athlete from the world of action sports. It was first awarded as part of the ESPY Awards in 2004 after the non-gender-specific Best Action Sports Athlete ESPY Award was presented the previous two years (with the American snowboarder Kelly Clark receiving the 2002 award).[2] It is given to the female, irrespective of nationality or sport contested, adjudged to be the best action sports athlete in a given calendar year. Balloting for the award is undertaken by fans over the Internet from between three and five choices selected by the ESPN Select Nominating Committee, which is composed of a panel of experts.[3] It is conferred in July to reflect performance and achievement over the preceding twelve months.[4]

The inaugural winner of the award was the American wakeboarder Dallas Friday.[5] During 2003 and 2004, Friday won 12 of the available 14 professional women's titles, including national and world championships. She became the first wakeboarder to be nominated for, and hence to win, an ESPY Award.[6] Athletes from the United States have won more times than any other nationality with seven (three times to snowboarder Jamie Anderson), followed by Australians with three, two of which went to the surfer Stephanie Gilmore. Snowboarders are most successful sportspeople (with eight awards), followed by surfers (four). The 2017 winner of the Best Female Action Sports Athlete ESPY Award was the Austrian snowboarder Anna Gasser.[1]
