Gilmore, Moore, Wright, Fiztgibbons, Ho and more line up for Australian Open in February
We are so excited to announce the star studded line up for the Hurley Australian Open of Surfing (Feb 7-15) at Manly Beach Australia. The 6 star event is in it’s 3rd year and kicks off the major events as part of the new World Surfing League before the first WCT (World Championship Tour) event, The Roxy Pro, on the Gold Coast.
The Hurley Australian Open in 2015 will be the first time that local legends Gilmore, Wright and Fitzgibbons will compete against each other since their incredibly close 2014 women’s World Championship Tour Title race in Hawaii. The event will be the perfect warm up leading into the first WCT showdown on the Gold Coast just a month later.
Carissa will be working hard to defend her 2014 title against the top line up but after a big win at the Target Maui Pro and a solid Hawaiian off season I’m sure we won’t be disappointed by what the x2 World Champ has installed.
Joining the top line up is local girl Laura Enever, Victorian Nikki Van Dijk, Hawaiians Coco Ho and tour rookie Tatiana Weston-Webb and Carissa Moore.
Check out Sally Fitzgibbon’s exclusive interview with us about the upcoming event.
