The World Surf League has announced a renewal of their partnership with Quiksilver as the Title Sponsor of the opening event of the men’s WSL Championship Tour, the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast, for the next three years (2019, 2020, 2021,).

For over 17 years, the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast has launched the WSL CT each season, welcoming the world’s best surfers to the famed break of Snapper Rocks and acting as a barometer for the World Title. This announcement will ensure the continuation of one of the Championship Tour’s most high-performance stops, as well as WSL’s strong relationship with Quiksilver.

“Quiksilver is a truly iconic brand in surfing and we are thrilled that they are extending their sponsorship of the Gold Coast contest for the next three years,” said WSL CEO, Sophie Goldschmidt. “Their continued commitment and support of the historic event at Snapper Rocks allows us to deliver a fantastic start to the season. We are very excited about the future of this event and to further strengthen our long-standing partnership with Quiksilver.”

This announcement solidifies a commitment from Quiksilver to this event for a continuous 20 year period.

Quiksilver Brand Manager Garry Wall said, “As part of our 50th year anniversary in 2019 and the continued resurgence of our brand, we are excited to extend our long-term commitment to the Gold Coast event. Quiksilver was founded by creating the boardshort category so to provide a platform for the best surfers in the world to perform in such a globally iconic wave fits perfectly for our brand. We are excited to have six surfers representing our brand on the 2019 tour, representing six different nationalities. Quiksilver is committed to developing the boardriding culture at all levels and partnering with the WSL at this elite level is key for the generations to come.”

The Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast will run from April 3 – 13, 2019 and open the men’s Championship Tour season. For more info, please visit WorldSurfLeague.com.
