THE BALLITO PRO PRESENTED BY O’NEILL

QS10,000 MEN'S PRO

For the eleventh consecutive year the KwaDukuza Municipality have embraced the Ballito Pro pres. by O’Neill which offers 10,000 points to the winner, the highest points haul available for men on the QS leaderboard.

The 112-man entry for the event traditionally includes at least a dozen of the world’s elite surfers who compete on the WSL Championship Tour (CT) along with the highest ranked QS surfers fighting for the right to qualify for the top tier.

Last year’s men’s field included a dozen of the world’s elite WSL Championship Tour (CT) surfers and was won by Brazilian Peterson Crisanto who, along with runner-up Jack Freestone (AUS), went on to qualify for the prestigious 2019 CT thanks to the huge haul of ranking points they both earned at Ballito.

The prestigious event also provides the best of the local WSL Africa members with invaluable experience competing against the world’s top professionals and the opportunity to earn plenty of coveted rankings points which assist them in gaining entry to the higher rated events internationally.

The locals will include the WSL Africa champion Adin Masencamp (Strand) plus those who finished in the Top 100 on the 2018 year end QS rankings, six wildcards chosen by the WSL, the Africa regional office and the event, and the winner of the Ballito Pro Trials to be held on Sunday 30 June.
