Woz comp for Cabarita
In the absence of tour surfing, the WSL has been running various standalone contests in surfing nations: The Rumble at the Ranch was recently held in the US; France and Portugal are combining for the Euro Surf Cup; while the Australian Grand Slam of Surfing includes two events, one at Margaret River and one at South Stradbroke Island, both held during a two month waiting period beginning in September.
Later today, the Wozzle will announce a third event to be held at Cabarita, northern NSW.
The Wozzle also considered Sandon Point and Boomerang Beach as potential locations. The respective boardrider clubs were approached and enticed with offers of free entries into the Pro Junior should it be held. At Boomerang Beach the Wozzle was met with resistance from local surfers complaining of an inordinate number of contests.
Ultimately, Cabarita was chosen as it lies within the 'Tweed bubble' so is easily accesible to surfers from Queensland and New South Wales.
The Wozzle will make the announcement at 1pm this afternoon on Norries Headland.
