25 of the world’s best surfboard shapers will call Manly home as part of the 2019 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro.
In a similar vein to 2018, a raft of Australian and International surfboard shapers will craft a range of different boardridingequipment on the shores of Manly Beach.
 
 

After hand-shaping a board for Mick Fanning’s final competition at Bells Beach at the Vissla Sydney Surf Pro in 2018, Darren Handley (DHD) is looking forward to returning to Manly Beach in 2019 to shape in front of a live audience.

“Shaping one of the last ever hand-shaped boards for Mick Fanning at the Vissla Sydney Surf Pro last year was awesome,” said Handley. “It’s not too often you get to interact with a live audience who are quite willing to bounce questions off you and pick your brain about the boards you shape. I’m really looking forward to being involved again in 2019 and shaping something new and fresh.”

In addition to the Creators and Innovators Shaping Bay, Vissla will also be incorporating airbrushing into the event, where a handful of artists will airbrush boards live.

A surfboard swap-meet is also slated to take place at the event site on Saturday, 23rd March, where spectators can view and potentially purchase one-of-a-kind surfboards.

The World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) 6,000 rated events will feature some of the world’s best surfers as they look to kick their 2019 competitive campaigns into gear prior to the start of the 2019 Championship Tour (CT).

The WSL QS 6,000 rated events will feature some of the world’s best surfers as they look to kick their 2019 competitive campaigns into gear prior to the start of the 2019 Championship Tour (CT).
