For the first time in over a decade the Peel Region will be hosting a major Open Surfing Contest. Sanctioned by Surfing WA, the Makin Homes Peel Pro presented by Star Surf + Skate is scheduled to coincide with the best possible swell window for the Mandurah area. The event will be run on the weekend of 25th / 26th July.
Mandurah Board Riders club will be hosting the event and are extremely excited to announce that local businesses Makin Homes and Star Surf + Skate have come on board as major sponsors.
The 2015 Makin Homes Peel Pro proudly presented by Star Surf and Skate will see the state’s best surfers compete in any one of the four selected venues approved by the City of Mandurah Local Council.
Depending on conditions, Gearies, Avalon, Egg Farms and Melros could all be utilised.
Up to 150 surfers will be converging on the beaches of Mandurah for the event in a hope of securing the inaugural title and a piece of the $5000 in cash and prises up for grabs.
You can listen to other Major sponsor Coast FM or join the Makin Homes Peel Pro Facebook page for updates and info in the next 10 weeks leading up to the contest.
The Heat draw will be done a little differently to usual contests - contestants will be drawn from a hat to allocate heat times for the first round of competition. The heat draw will be happening at Cobblers Tavern at 6:00pm on July 24 to kick off proceedings and make it interesting for all competitors.
You do not have to be a Surfing WA member to participate in the event and this will allow a big chunk of the local Mandurah surfers the ability to test themselves against the state’s best surfers in their own back yard.
Entries are now being taken through Surfing WA’s official events page HERE or click on the link through the events Facebook page.
