The legendary wave of Nias, otherwise know as Lagundri Bay in Indonesia, was the scene for a WSL QS 3000 event, and three of our younger local pro surfers travelled to compete with moderate success.
The surf didn’t quite fire up with only small waves and some bumpy conditions on hand.
Byron Bay’s Kyuss King and Lennox Head’s Mikey McDonagh finished in equal 17th place, and Lennox Head’s Jack Murray in equal 49th.
Byron Bay’s Soli Bailey and Matt Wilkinson, along with Lennox Head’s Stuart Kennedy, competed at the Abanca Galicia Classic Surf Pro in Pantin, Spain.
The WSL QS 10,000 event is one of the critical competitions for those surfers looking to qualify for the 2020 Championship Tour.
Unfortunately, the boys didn’t gain any ground on the ratings ladder after early eliminations. Kennedy was best with a 25th-place finish, Wilkinson in 37th with Bailey in 73rd place.
