Hurley Pro Sunset Beach set to start this week

South Africans Jordy Smith and JBay local Matt McGillivray will be surfing against each other in the first heatof the Hurley Pro Sunset Beach when the second event of the 2022 World Championship Tour kicks off this week.

“Starting from Tuesday, it looks like we will have really big and nice conditions for Sunset. We are going to be off for today. We will have a look on Monday with the idea that there could be some waves on Monday at the beginning of this swell, but Tuesday looks great and we are likely going to be on from then,” said Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL SVP of Tours and Head of Competition.
