WSL Comes To Town

28/03/2021 - 10:44
The WSL came out of quarantine and the best surfers in the world came straight up to Newcastle this week.

Some competitors had been here during a QS season but some had never surfed in Newcastle before.

We had the full range of conditions – messy, onshore and rainy to start with, then on Thursday Dixon Park turned on – large and offshore most of the day.

The swell died down and petered out completely by Sunday.

Surfers include Kanoa Igarashi, Gabriel Medina, Frederico Morais, Italo Ferreira, Jordy Smith, Filipe Toledo, Miguel Pupo, Jeremy Flores, Yago Dora, Caio Ibelli, John John Florence, Deivid Silva, Jadson Andre, Adriano De Souza, Johanne Defay, Tatiana Weston-Webb, Morgan Cibilic, Seth Moniz, Alex Ribeiro
