Hey, how about that? It’s On! With surprisingly little fanfare, the first ever WSL event is in full swing over at the Shoe City Pro at Huntington Beach. It’s a QS1000, which used to be a 1-Star, so, it’s not exactly the Pipe Masters or anything, but still, it’s the rebranded WSL’s first event, so surely some fanfare is in order. If nothing else, it gives us a little practice before the ‘CT fires up to start calling pro surfing’s governing body its new name.
