Fan­ning fears for Pro fu­ture

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

Surf­ing leg­end Mick Fan­ning has said the fu­ture of the Mar­garet River Pro hangs in the bal­ance be­cause of in­dif­fer­ent con­di­tions.

The Pro has been the sub­ject of spec­u­la­tion it could be moved to Kal­barri from 2020.

Last year’s Pro, can­celled be­cause of high-pro­file shark at­tacks, was wrapped up at Bali’s Uluwatu surf break.

“To be hon­est, the main break there is pretty av­er­age and I re­ally didn’t en­joy surf­ing it,” Fan­ning told The West Aus­tralian this week.

“The sur­round­ing waves around that area are world class and the more they can get to those other lo­ca­tions like North Point and The Box, the bet­ter the events will be. But they can be a lit­tle fickle and it’s fingers crossed they get the right swells each time they show up.”
