Julian Wilson Australian Open 2017
WSL Australian Open of Surfing 2017
The WSL Australian Open of Surfing 2017 is right on the sand of Manly Beach, the mega surf lifestyle event blasts off on February 25. The world’s best surfers, skaters, BMXrs and high voltage live music is all here for you to enjoy, free! Huge arenas are built right on the sand so you’ll be in the heart of the action. In the surf, men and women will be ripping in the main event, the World Surf League-sanctioned QS6000 Pro, as well as Juniors going off in the Sydney Grom Challenge.
Skate & BMX Too!
A never-before-seen concrete course will be the venue for the inaugural and high flying Vans Skate Park Series. This is a World Championship event for men and women offering a total US$500,000 prize pool. Action will be intense.
For BMX there’s also the inaugural Vans BMX Pro Cup Global Qualifier that will use the same built-to-spec course as Skate, so BMXrs will be getting air too.
Both these competitions are key in the making of the Vans Skate and BMX World Champions.
Great Waves @ Manly!
Manly Beach is the host location with its world class surf breaks. The Bower, Winki and Deadmans at the southern end. Peaky beach breaks run along the beach to Queenscliff. Queenie Bommie is a reef one kilometer offshore that holds huge swell.
Last year’s event saw Dion Atkinson (AUS) and Nikki Van Dijk (AUS) as the male and female Champions. Manly turning on clean three-foot waves.
Come on down and enjoy a day at the beach with the family, and watch the best surfers in the world compete. There is plenty to do for the kids with games and bouncy castles, and also watch the Skateboarding competition and in the evening the Music Festival kicks off.
