Margaret River Pro continues to ride Championship wave

The Margaret River Pro will retain its Championship Tour status following a deal between the World Surf League (WSL) and the State Government. The deal secures the event on the tour until at least 2021, with a further option for extension.

The State Government, through Tourism Western Australia, has been a proud sponsor of the Margaret River Pro for more than 30 years. The event has been part of the WSL Championship Tour since 2014. Some of the biggest names in surfing have competed at past events, including Kelly Slater, John John Florence, Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore.
