LAGUNDRI BAY, NIAS /INDONESIA (Tuesday, June 21, 2022) – The 2022 Nias Pro World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) 5000 event and Pro Junior is set to commence tomorrow as over 150 of Asia and Australia / Oceania’s best up and coming surfers have arrived at Lagundri Bay, home to Indonesia’s premier right-hander. Competitors will battle hard, with all points earned going towards 2023 Challenger Series Qualification.
“WSL is stoked to be back at one of the best waves in the world in Lagundri Bay for this year’s Nias Pro,” said WSL Asia Pacific Tour Manager Ty Sorati. “We’ve got a great forecast with potential for pumping waves over the weekend which is going to be awesome to see. This is a super important event in terms of CS qualification for 2023 for surfers in the Asia and Australia / Oceania region so we can’t wait to see who steps up over the coming week.”
Fresh off career best results at Krui, Ryuki Waida (IDN) and Jarvis Earle (AUS) will be keen to continue their run of form, this time going right. Indonesia’s Kailani Johnson (IDN) is no stranger to success at Nias and she’ll be looking for another win in 2022 when competition commences, most likely tomorrow morning.
Event organisers will convene at Lagundri Bay tomorrow morning to make a call on competition at 7:00 a.m. local time for a potential 7:30 a.m. start.
