World's best touch down in WA ahead of Margaret River Pro

The worlds best have now touched down in Western Australia for the Margaret River Pro and final leg of the World Surf League down under

The worlds best surfers have now touched down in Western Australia for the final leg of the World Surf League down under; the Boost Mobile Margaret River Pro is set to get underway on May 2 through until May 12.

The fourth stop on the WSL CT and the third stop on the Australian leg, Margaret River, is a familiar venue for competitors and surf fans and bring some big wave action, compared to the recent shore breaks of Newcastle and Narrabeen.

Competitors are going to be tested in diverse conditions as both Main Break, and The Box are open options to run during the event window.
Yesterday Surfing WA announced the local trials at Main Break with wildcards announced.

Winning the women’s event was 14-year-old local prodigy Willow Hardy, who will now add this CT event appearance to her already impressive resume.
The men’s side saw a familiar result with Margaret River CT hopeful Jacob Willcox cementing himself another wildcard spot at the elite level with a victory over fellow Margaret River up-and-comer Cyrus Cox.

The local lads will have their work cut out for them with Cyrus taking on Brazilian World Champions Gabriel Medina (BRA) and Adriano de Souza (BRA), while Willcox will look to upset fellow Margaret River local Jack Robinson (AUS) and Reigning World Champion Italo Ferreira (BRA).

Get ready for all of the Margaret River Pro kicking off on May 2
