The 35th Phillip Island Pro, 2019
Woolamai Beach turned on some great weather and fantastic waves for the 35th Annual Phillip Island Kneeboard Pro, held on 16th and 17th of March. This is round 1 of the Australian Kneeboard Title, and all of the best Kneelo's from Australia were in attendance, along with some overseas surfers. A field of 60 kicked off Saturday morning at "classic" Woolamai. 4 foot lefts and rights, along with strong rips greeted the competitors. All of the top seeds got through round 1 and 2, but by round 3 any of the remaining 16 were good enough to make the final, but that meant that some very good surfers would miss out. Those knocked out in the quarter finals included James Anderson, Baden Smith, Stan Kofoed, Pete McLure, Nick Hartigan, Greg Budgen, Mark McLeod, and last year's winner, Pete Fairweather. The final 8 were set to surf first light on Sunday morning. 3-4 foot glassy waves with no wind, perfect conditions to watch the best.
