The stage is set for the inaugural 2023 Manokwari Pro World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS)1000 and Pro Junior event, as a field of international competitors have arrived in the far east Indonesian outpost of Manokwari and are ready for the start of the 5-day event that will kick off tomorrow morning at Amban Beach.
“We’re thrilled to make history in Manokwari, West Papua, as the WSL hosts its inaugural event here,” said WSL APAC Tour Manager Ty Sorati. “The charm of this untouched surfing gem paired with Asia’s best up-and-coming surfers sets the stage for an electrifying competition.
