Two hundred miles south of the world’s most isolated city (Perth) is Margaret River. The small coastal town of less than 10,000 people is punching above its weight class, drawing tourists from all over the globe to their top-of-the-line wineries, caves and waves.
One such wave — Main Break — and its cousin “The Box” just across the channel, host the WSL’s best every year. If we’re being honest, this used to be one of the quietest comps on tour. Why? Sitting smack dab in the middle of the season, it lacked the excitement of the beginning and drama of the end. But with the introduction of WSL’s mid-year cut, the stakes for these surfers has never been higher. If you finish below the top 20 (or 10, or women), you’re sent down to the Challenger Series. Finish above, and you get to close out the season with the big-dogs. With that, the world’s attention is on the far reaches of WA, with plenty of swell on the way.
Grab your wine opener and meet us at the bluff, the 2023 Margaret River Pro is on from April 20 - 30. Log on to WSL to cheer on the Monster team!
