Matt McGillivray Primed to Qualify WSL Championship Tour

World Qualifying Series surfer Matt McGillivray from Jeffreys Bay is primed to qualify for the elite World Surf League’s Championship Tour for 2020 after placing 3rd at the Hawaiian Pro 10,000 tournament on the weekend.

World Qualifying Series surfer Matt McGillivray from Jeffreys Bay is primed to qualify for the elite World Surf League’s Championship Tour for 2020 after placing 3rd at the Hawaiian Pro.

McGillivray had the weight of qualification on his shoulders, as a win would have officially gained him his first year on the CT. The 22-year-old surfed with his casual confidence and took on a veteran field in the Semifinals, eliminating two-time Hawaiian Pro winner Michel Bourez and eleven-time World Champion Kelly Slater en route to the Final.

With this result, McGillivray moves into the top ten on the QS at number 6, jumping eight slots up the rankings. The top 10 surfers qualify for the Championship Tour, if they have not already secured their place by requalifying on the CT.

Matt will be looking forward to the upcoming Vans World Cup Of Surfing at Sunset Beach. He is always a standout at this venue, and it will be the final event of the year for him to bank one more good result, and to secure his berth on the Championship Tour for next year.

Once his qualification has been made official, Matt will be joining fellow South African surfer Jordy Smith on the elite Championship Tour of Surfing.
