With COVID-19 placing the entire world on hold right now, the hundreds of proud, unique and beautiful local communities that make up the global surfing phenomenon need our support.

That's why the WSL, in partnership with the world's best surfers, is rolling out its #StayLocal campaign, where we're encouraging you - if you're able - to support the people in your respective local communities.

You may want to pre-order a new board from your local shaper, purchase gift cards from the local surf shop, or order coffees online from the local cafe.

Communities are made up of people and, if you can, #StayLocal is encouraging you to help them out right now.

The world's best surfers are doing the same in supporting their respective local communities and the WSL is matching their support through the #StayLocal program.

Stay safe and thank you for supporting one another.
