PUNTA ROCA, La Libertad, El Salvador (Wednesday, June 15, 2022) – The Surf City El Salvador Pro Presented by Corona, Stop No. 7 on the World Surf League (WSL) 2022 Championship Tour (CT), is ON with the women’s and men’s Opening Rounds in three-to-four foot waves at Punta Roca. The women’s competition will start at 7:05 a.m. CST, followed by men’s Opening Round 1. There will be no Elimination Rounds on today.

Gabriela Bryan (HAW) is the only women’s 2022 CT rookie still in the draw following the Mid-season Cut. Bryan has come close to her first CT victory with a second-place finish at the Margaret River Pro and is on the cusp of securing a big win in her rookie season. Sitting at World No. 10 and having already qualified for the 2023 season, Bryan can surf without the pressure of falling off of the CT when she comes up against Tatiana Weston-Webb (BRA) and Lakey Peterson (USA) in the opening heat of the Round 1.

Caroline Marks (USA) returns to competition here in El Salvador as the 2022 WSL CT wildcard. She will be up against Costa Rica’s Brisa Hennessy and Australia’s Isabella Nichols in Heat 3 today.

The Surf City Pro El Salvador Presented by Corona will see CT newcomers Bryan Perez (SLV) and Josh Burke (BRB) in the draw alongside the world’s best surfers. Perez is the local hero and will have the support of El Salvador behind him when he matches up with current World No. 1 Filipe Toledo (BRA) and World No. 16 Nat Young (USA). Burke was called in as the replacement surfer for 11-time World Champion Kelly Slater (USA) and will face World No. 2 Jack Robinson (AUS) and No. 16 Samuel Pupo (BRA) in Heat 3 of the Opening Round.
