The NSW coastline will once again play host to the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series when the four World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) events kick off in January 2018.

Once again Surfing NSW has joined forces with the NSW Government, through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, Vissla, World Surf League and NBN to bring four QS1,000 rated events back to Maroubra Beach, Cabarita, Avoca and Boomerang Beach.

The 2018 Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series was announced today at Cabarita - the location of the Tweed Coast Pro - by Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall, Member for Tweed Geoff Provest, Destination Tweed Chairman Aymon Gow, Vissla's John Mossop and promising young surfers Max Kearney and Hinata Aizawa.

Surfing NSW CEO Luke Madden said that the four-event series has become one of the benchmark events on the Surfing NSW calendar.

“Over the last two years the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series has become one of Surfing NSW’s key assets and it’s a series we want to continue to see growing,” said Madden. “Events like the Tweed Coast Pro have exceeded all of our expectations and we can’t wait to see them kick off again in 2018.”

WSL Australia/Oceania Regional Manager Will Hayden-Smith said the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series was the perfect platform for World Surf League Qualifying Series surfers to get their 2018 campaign kicked off.

“The Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series is a fantastic way to kick off the Australian leg of the WSL Qualifying Series,” said Hayden-Smith. “It offers surfers from Australia and all over the world the chance to start their 2018 competitive campaigns off in a variety of world-class locations. WSL are extremely grateful to Surfing NSW and all of the sponsors of the series for helping us give our athletes opportunities to compete and gain valuable points and prize-money on the NSW coast."
