WSL Winners with Mayor Michael Regan
Professional surfing had a triumphant comeback to the Northern Beaches after a two-decade hiatus with the second round of the World Surf League event attracting over 20,000 spectators.

North Narrabeen Beach saw capacity crowds each day of the four-day event to see the world’s best battle it out in ideal surf conditions.

Mayor Michael Regan congratulated event organisers, participants and eventual winners for an outstanding event that had millions of viewers around the world watching on live web streaming and TV.

“We are so proud to have partnered with the State Government to have hosted such a terrifically successful event,” Cr Regan said.

“Congratulations to the winners Caroline Marks (USA) and Gabriel Medina (Brazil) for outstanding, consistent performance that thrilled spectators.

“From the business owners and spectators I have spoken to these last few days, the Surf Classic was a massive shot in the arm our community so urgently needed.

“Not only has the event given the area a much-needed economic boost, but has also lifted the morale of the whole community coming out of a long period of uncertainty.

Mayor Regan said the success demonstrated the capacity of Council and local community to host a sporting event of this calibre, as well as the desire for spectators to visit an important drawcard event.

“The event has brought economic benefits for tourism and hospitality providers and local businesses and reinforces our commitment to supporting events that foster a healthy and safe community.”
