Surfers from North Steyne and Queenscliff Boardriders Clubs joined Member for Manly James Griffin at the Hotel Steyne this evening to officially announce the boardrider club trialists for the 2019 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro.
The trials event will see surfers from both clubs go head-to-head as they attempt to earn themselves a wildcard into the World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) 6,000 rated divisions as well as the Key Sun Zinke Sydney Pro Junior.
Both clubs will have equal representation across all male and female divisions.
See above for all wildcard trialists from each club.
Member for Manly James Griffin believes the wildcard trials is the ideal platform for local surfers to shine alongside some of the world’s best.
“There are two amazing clubs on one of the most iconic stretches of beach on the entire coast and there’s no love lost between them in the water, but obviously they remain good friends on land. I think both clubs will have a great time at the event and I can’t wait to see what they do with their wildcard entries.”
The WSL QS 6,000 rated events will feature some of the world’s best surfers as they look to kick their 2019 competitive campaigns into gear prior to the start of the 2019 Championship Tour (CT).
