Surfing's Finest Converge on Lemoore for Surf Ranch Pro

Surf Ranch Pro: Get ready for an extraordinary weekend of elite surfing action. Witness the world's best riders take on the perfect wave at California's Surf Ranch.

Are you ready for a weekend of thrilling surfing action as the Surf Ranch Pro Pro takes center stage as Stop No. 6 on the World Surf League (WSL) 2023 Championship Tour (CT).
This highly anticipated event, held at the world-renowned Surf Ranch, promises to deliver an unparalleled competition experience for both athletes and spectators alike. Surfers from around the globe will converge at this extraordinary venue to ride the world's longest, open-barrel, high-performance, human-made wave, putting their skills to the ultimate test.

Located over 100 miles from the salty shores, the Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California, offers a unique spectacle, bringing the ocean's beauty inland. It offers enthusiasts and onlookers an exclusive opportunity to witness elite surfers in action from exceptional vantage points. Prepare to be awed as the world's finest wave riders showcase their prowess on this awe-inspiring wave. But it's not just the thrilling surf that will captivate attendees. The Surf Ranch Pro will also feature live music performances, delectable food options, engaging activations, and exclusive shopping experiences, ensuring a memorable weekend for all.

As the competitors gear up for the Surf Ranch Pro, two deserving surfers have been granted wildcards. Cole Houshmand, the highest-ranked North American surfer on the Challenger Series, has earned the coveted men's event wildcard. Houshmand's exceptional talent has rightfully earned him a spot among the world's best. On the women's side, Alyssa Spencer, the second-highest-ranked North American surfer on the Challenger Series, has secured the women's event wildcard. Spencer's dedication and skill make her a formidable contender in this prestigious competition. Notably, Sawyer Lindblad, the highest-ranked North American surfer, had initially been offered the wildcard but had to decline due to prior travel commitments.

Unfortunately, Seth Moniz, a talented surfer from Hawaii, has been forced to withdraw from the Surf Ranch Pro due to a back injury. However, fans need not despair, as Jett Schilling, the second-highest ranked North American surfer on the Challenger Series leaderboard following the conclusion of the GWM Sydney Surf Pro event, will step in to fill Moniz's shoes. Schilling, known for his impressive skills and unwavering determination, is set to make a splash in this highly competitive field.

Mark your calendars for the Surf Ranch Pro which kicks off on Saturday, May 27, and Sunday, May 28, 2023 local time.
