Severne has a deeply rooted history at Margaret River. Being the home break of PWA World Champion Scott McKercher, “Margs” has also been one of the main inception and testing grounds for Severne products since the beginning.

The local scene is thriving at a high level, and new, up-and-coming rippers are emerging.

Severne is proud to support this year’s Margaret River Wave Classic and to see competition wave action return to “margs” for yet another year.

The SEVERNE Margaret River Wave Classic 2022 will go ahead from February 4-7 as an IWT*** tour stop.

There will be a $5000,- prize pool split evenly between men and women.

Event info

The event will be held over two consecutive days during the event window (February 4-7)

The fleets will be as follows;

  • Open: Open to anyone. $2,500 prize pool.
  • Women: Women only. $2,500 prize pool (Women are welcome to enter any other divisions they are eligible for).
  • Youth: Under 19
  • Weekend Warrior: Weekend only
  • Masters: Age 45 and older

All windsurfers can participate as long as they are either full WWA (Windsurfing Western Australia) members or purchase single event membership.

Competition Format

The aim is to run a ‘dingo’ format (the WA version of the dingle) where the losers from the first round compete in round 2 and the winners of round 1 advance straight to round 3. This gives everyone at least 2 heats.

In the event of limited wind and/or waves expression session formats may be run.
