Auckland Council events and economic development arm ATEED has secured Piha as the venue for part of the new World Surf League(WSL) Challenger series in March 2020,2021 and 2022. The inaugural Piha Pro will attract a huge international field with some of surfing’s biggest stars coming up against New Zealand’s most promising talent. Additionally, the event will offer equal prize money to both men and women.
This is a great opportunity for Piha and the community. While the event will inevitably pose some difficulties with traffic, accommodation and intrusion into our usual daily routines, the organisers recognise the challenges presented and are determined to work with the community to make the Piha Pro event a success. If we all work positively with the organisers, we can look forward to a great event with the minimum of disruption.
