The first stop on the Men’s Surfing Championship Tour 2019. Every year the WSL’s best surfers amass on the Gold Coast of Australia for the Quiksilver Pro in anticipation to the start of the season.
Held at iconic Snapper Rocks, the contest serves as an exhibition of state-of-the-art, high-performance surfing. It’s also a hell of a good time. And with Duranbah Beach right over the hill and Byron Bay (also home of the Bluesfest music festival) about an hour’s drive away, there are ample options for more civilian surf. Numerous sponsor parties and nightlife activities on the schedule ensure there’s plenty to do when the sun goes down.
