The region is renowned for pumping surf and there’s nothing better than watching the world’s best carve it up.
Recently ranked No.1 best surfer in the world, winner of the 2022 Margaret River Pro event, and local favourite, Jack Robinson, is returning home to defend the title in front of hundreds of home-based fans keen to see if he can go back-to-back.
Joining Robinson are other big-name surfers such as Kelly Slater, John John Florence, and Stephanie Gilmore who all love coming to Margaret River – and it’s not just for the waves. Florence has great memories from the south west, Slater loves the food and wine of the region, and Gilmore loves the region’s natural beauty and how raw and rugged the coastline is. Plus, she loves that she can always find a wave to surf in one of the 75 surf breaks in the region.
The Margaret River Pro, the fifth leg on the 10-stop World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour, marks the last stop of the first half on the tour and cuts the field down from 36 men to 24, and the women’s field from 18 to 12. These top-performing surfers will advance to the next stage to compete for the coveted World Title, and will also automatically receive an invite to the 2024 event – so it’s a very high-stakes stage of the tour.
The event will be held at Surfers Point from 20-30 April 2023 and, best of all, you can get a great seat and watch all the action live for free.
