Clear your diaries. This month, Manly is playing host to the 2018 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro, a World Surf League qualifying event that will see some of the world’s best surfers compete for a place in the WSL Championship Tour.
Over the course of 9 days and two glorious weekends, the event will page homage to the iconic beachside destination as Manly transforms into a surfer’s paradise, with activations taking place both on the shore and in the surrounding local business precinct.
Kicking off what will be an action packed calendar of events is the WSL-sanctioned Pro Junior competition, sponsored by the Northern Beaches’ very own Key Sun Zinke. On the 24th and 25th of February, come down and watch the groms smash it out in what is set to be an epic couple of days showcasing young local and international talent.
And, while the waves keep rolling, there will be plenty more to see and do out of the water including surfside markets, art exhibitions, competitions, live board shaping, meal deals and discounts, and even an inflatable boat race.
For the full schedule, visit the Sydney Surf Pro official website and don’t forget to drop into the Zinke tent and lather up with some SPF 50+ Zinke to keep the sun’s harsh rays at bay as you enjoy the very best of what Manly has to offer.
