Friday March 13, 2020

SYDNEY SURF PRO WINNERS

  • Due to the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, the WSL announced yesterday to cancel all events yet to commence at all Tour levels.
  • And with that, the Sydney Surf Pro wrapped yesterday with 4-time World Champ Carissa Moore and Italy's Leo Fiorivanti taking the wins.
  • In a buzzer-beater against 2-time World Champ Tyler Wright, Moore earned her third career victory at Manly.
  • And in another buzzer-beater win, Fioravanti edged out Matt Banting, laying down his second scoring air reverse in the waning moments of the Final.
  • Stay tuned here for updates on when and where WSL competition will resume.

SURFERS REACT TO POSTPONEMENT

  • In light of the WSL's decision to postpone all events through March for the safety of athletes, staff and fans, the planet's top surfers are reacting.
  • Two-time World Champ John John Florence took to Instagram to say...
  • "Bummed we won't get to see everyone at Snapper this year but thank you to the WSL for taking this situation seriously."
  • To all the surfers that have spoken up, thank you for your understanding and adding your voice to this important conversation.
