The stage is set for the second annual Western Australia Pro Surf Series which will commence this weekend with the first of two events, the Mandurah Pro looking to get underway tomorrow. The back-to-back World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) 1000 (Mandurah Pro and Cape Naturaliste Pro) events will see over 60 male and female competitors from 9 countries battle it out for all-important WSL QS ranking points.
Brother and sister duo Harry McPherson and younger sister April McPherson, have been awarded wildcard spots in the Mandura Pro. The surfing siblings from Falcon were nominated by the Mandurah Boardriders Club to fill the highly sought-after positions after some impressive performances at local, state and national levels over the past 12 months. The duo will now have the opportunity to compete on home soil against some of the very best surfers from across the Australia/Oceania region.
