Manly’s Hotel Steyne has announced it will once again be the Official Event Venue for the 2019 Sydney Surf Pro presented by Vissla.
From March 16 – 21, the venue will host a live feed of the competition on the big screen, along with art installations, live music, fashion parades, and photography displays.
With some of the world’s best surfers kicking off their competitive campaigns for the 2019 Champion Tour, Manly will play host to the World Surf League Qualifying Series rated events.
This year, Sisstrevoltion have partnered with World Surf League (WSL) to bring added support to women competing at Manly and Avoca. The partnership will see the female divisions perform on a solid platform for gaining Qualifying Series points, and potentially competing in the 2019 Champion Tour.
This comes after last year’s announcement that women would finally be awarded the same prize money as men in elite WSL events. In previous years, women have received around half the prize money that men have for competing in the same event.
Hotel Steyne have also partnered with Carve Eyewear and Surfing World Magazine, with plenty of giveaways promised at the event. There will also be drink specials throughout the week courtesy of Corona, Hendricks and Molly’s Cradle.
