They say life starts at 40, and if this truly is the case then this year’s edition of the Mr Price Pro is set to be the best yet.


Founded in 1969, the event formerly known as the Gunston 500, has brought the world’s top surfers to Durban’s shores for four decades and 2008 will be no different.

Over 200 international surfers are set to converge at New Pier Beach for the ninth edition of the 6-Star Association of Surfing Professionals World Qualifying Series Mr Price Pro, which kicks off from June 27-July 6.

Marking the halfway stage on the prestigious ASP WQS (the qualifier for the top tier ASP World Tour), the 6- Star rated Mr Price Pro will see tension running high as surfers contend for valuable ASP ratings points and a spot alongside the world’s Top 45 surfers at the end of the year.

The R1,380,000.00 Mr Price Pro forms one of three ASP WQS events staged in Durban each year but is unique in that it is the only such event to incorporate three individual events under one ‘umbrella’, including the only ASP 5- Star Women’s WQS event in Africa.

In 2001 the Mr Price Pro extended its reach even further to include many of South Africa’s best junior surfers by providing them with their very own event, the 3A rated Mr Price Pro Junior.

This year sees an exciting new installment, the R20 000 Glodina Expression Session which takes place on the final two days of competition (July 5- 6, 2008).
