A PLACE in the Margaret River Pro is on offer to East Fremantle local Moses Le Grice, who will battle through Tuesday’s trials at Surfers Point in WA’s south west to earn his spot competing against the world’s best.

Le Grice and Cottesloe’s Jake Edwards will go up against 10 local surfers in the trials, aiming to snare the one available wildcard into Wednesday’s main draw.

The third stop on the World Surf League Championship Tour will feature more than 40 of the best male and female surfers including joint tour leaders Julian Wilson and Italo Ferreria, John John Florence, Gabriel Medina and Stephanie Gilmore.

Kelly Slater is still nursing a foot injury and will not compete.

Last year’s event attracted 6200 visitors to the region.
