Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan has extended a warm welcome to the world’s surfing elite as they prepare to descend on North Narrabeen Beach for the next round of the World Surf League.
“We are very excited to be co-sponsoring this prestigious event with the State Government at what has been described as the spiritual home of professional surfing in Australia,” Mayor Regan said.
“This event is a great feather in the cap for the Northern Beaches, injecting about $15 million into the local economy and showcasing its extraordinary beaches to visitors and television audiences around the world,” he said.
“I look forward to seeing some great waves and hot competition from the surfing élite.”
The second round of the World Surf League runs from April 16 to 26. Competing for prize money of over $1 million, over 50 top surfers will do battle.
It’s the first time a professional surfing event has been held at North Narrabeen Beach since the late 1990s.
No tickets are required for attending the Rip Curl Narrabeen Classic, however taking into consideration the current NSW Health Orders and to ensure community safety the event has a limited capacity. Once this has been reached no further spectators will be permitted into the event. The event can also be watched online – visit WSL.
