Sydney Surf Pro

BRINGING WORLD-CLASS SURFING HOME TO MANLY BEACH

WHAT IS THE VISSLA SYDNEY SURF PRO?

Manly Beach will once again play host to world surfing’s elite when the Vissla Sydney Surf Pro returns from the 16 – 24 March 2019.

The World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) 6,000 rated events will feature some of the world’s best surfers as they look to kick their 2019 competitive campaigns into gear prior to the start of the 2019 Championship Tour (CT).

The Vissla Sydney Surf Pro will this year also host a number of off-beach activations and festivities that will be centralised around the Corso area. Drop into the Steyne Hotel any time of the day to soak up the essence of Manly. Take a stroll down The Corso to enjoy the artisan markets and impeccable gourmet treats, cafes, restaurants and bars.

It’s an event for the whole family, and every member of the local and wider community to enjoy. Surfing brings people together and what better place than Manly to host the perfect balance of surfing, beach life and festival vibes.

The Vissla Sydney Surf Pro is proudly supported by the NSW Government. The event is also proudly supported by Vissla, Northern Beaches Council, WSL, KeySun and Surfing NSW.

“We wanted the best possible environment for the surfers and the local community and maximise the interaction between surfers and the fans,” said Luke Madden, CEO of Surfing NSW. “This will help to create an amazing experience for all.”

The Vissla Sydney Surf Pro evolved out of discussions with World Surf League, Manly Council, local MP James Griffin, Surfing NSW, Destination NSW and Vissla.

“What a terrific demonstration of community spirit and clear intent from our local businesses to support the Vissla Sydney Surf Pro at Manly Beach,” said Griffin. “The event will showcase Manly to the world and be a great boost for our businesses and create a wonderful time for locals. I’m grateful to all the businesses who have come on board and look forward to welcoming others as we get closer to the event.”

“It’s really exciting for World Surf League and our surfers to be able to have such a large scale event in Sydney,” said WSL Australia/Oceania Regional Manager Will Hayden-Smith. “We’re ecstatic to work with partners like Destination NSW, Surfing NSW, Vissla and the Northern Beaches Council who share our vision for surfing and caring for the environment. It’s an exciting time counting down to this brand new event.”’
