The Corona Bali Protected has welcomed back the worlds best surfers for the start of the third stop on the World Surf League CT.

The event period kicks off today and runs through to May 25, and event officials will select the best days within the window to run the competition. With a promising forecast starting today and tomorrow.
The event got underway today with both Mens and Womens seeding rounds completed.

Heading into its second year, title partner Corona and WSL are continuing to raise awareness around the world about the dangers of marine plastic pollution in Bali by dedicating the name of the event to the cause. At the Corona Bali Protected, Corona is launching “La Casa”, a pop-up house made from 1.5 tons of recycled plastic in partnership with NevHouse. The house is a platform for surfers, artists and thought-leaders to collaborate on projects that can inspire a better world. The house will pop-up in different locations on the Championship Tour, with each iteration involving new collaborators and new projects. This year, in partnership with Parley for the Oceans, the project is supporting local NGOs who have successfully campaigned for a ban of single-use plastic later this year.

In the morning get your hand on our full competition wrap up and the call of competition at the Corona Bali Protected tomorrow in the AM.
