WSL 2017 Season is Underway

The World Surf League’s 2017 season is underway.  This year, as in years past, the season starts with its Australia leg, beginning with the Quiksilver sponsored Snapper event.  The Oz events to start the season off are Snapper Rocks first, won by Owen Wright this year, then Margaret River (a recent addition to the tour), won by John Florence, and finally, Bells Beach, which is yet to be determined.  The Bells event is currently on stand-by.  The waiting period is from the 12th through the 24th of April.  After the Australian leg, the boys head to venues in Brazil, Fiji, South Africa, Tahiti, California, France, Portugal, and lastly Hawaii.  This should be another interesting season packed with big airs and deep barrels.
