It’s like the first day of school! Old faces and new faces from far and near places. The chalkboard is blank and the opportunities are endless. If you smell something in the air, well, that’s hope. (Or sunscreen — could be sunscreen.) Such is the scene each year for the opening event of the WSL Championship Tour, as the world’s best men and women compete in the warm, sandy point break that is Snapper Rocks, in Coolangata, Queensland, Australia. It’s a beautiful thing, the start of a long year. Everyone is tied for first, and all they have to do is stay there.
The waiting period for the 2018 Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast and Roxy Pro Gold Coast extends from March 10 – March 22. Tune in to worldsurfleague.com to watch the action!
