The WSL Championship Tour is back in Western Australia. Some might ask, “Why?” and it’d be a fair question. Main Break Margaret River is notoriously slow and the abundance of sharks in the area has caused more than a few nightmares, heat delays and even last year’s event cancelation. But the event is largely financed by the Western Australia tourism board and government, so it makes it hard for the WSL to walk away. That said, Southwest WA — with its stunning coastline, consistent surf and world class wine — remains a favorite among tour vets. So, till Tourism WA stops paying the bills, we’ll keep coming back to the West! We aren’t mad about it.
The 2019 Margaret River Pro runs from May 29-June 9. Log on to worldsurfleague.com to cheer on the Monster Team!
