The WSL returns to World of X Games this Saturday for the third stop on the 2016 Samsung Galaxy World Surf League Championship Tour – the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro at Main Break in Western Australia.

The last stop of the Australian leg of the WSL closed with a solid swell and offshore winds, setting up a dramatic Final’s day between Hawaii’s Sebastian Zietz and Australia’s Julian Wilson, fellow countryman Joel Parkinson and 2015 WSL Rookie of the Year Italo Ferreira of Brazil. The showdown between Zietz and Wilson drew plenty of attention as both athletes opened up with strong scores and traded fierce back-to-back battles. Matt Wilkinson, winner of the first two events on the CT continued his hold on to the WSL Jeep Leader jersey with a commanding 24,000 points.
