Highlights: Murasaki Shonan Open Kicks Off Opening Day

The World Surf League (WSL) Men's Qualifying Series (QS) is back in the land of the rising sun July 9 - 16 for the Murasaki Shonan Open QS 1,500 supported by Nissan Caravan and competition kicked off on opening day thanks to Super Typhoon Maria. Competitors were greeted with solid conditions throughout the day as competition powered through Rounds 1 and 2.

The intense, mid-summer sunshine scorched the beach as the event started promptly at 7:00 a.m. local time with glassy conditions on offer. The contest will have an eight day waiting period, extending through July 16, to give event organizers and competitors the best choice of swell -- which paid off right away.
