The Burleigh Pro will be transformed this year after seeing more and more success over past years, including a new name... 

Drumroll please! 


Introducing the Gold Coast Open presented by Flight Centre!

The event will be bigger and better than ever as a World Surf League (WSL) QS 1,500 rated event, set to run over 6 days from May 7th - 12th.

Surfing Queensland CEO Adam Yates is excited for the opportunities that will follow the name change. 

“The potential for the event to grow into something much larger and well-known is sure to become evident with the re-brand. With the increase in WSL Qualifying Series rating points from 1,000 to a 1,500, as well as the inclusion of the WSL Pro Junior event, skateboarding event and live music, there’s potential for the Gold Coast Open to become internationally renowned.”   - Adam Yates
