Margaret River Pro 2017: Crowds flock to Point for Pro final

As the swell built on Saturday morning, so did the crowds of surfing fans, locals and tourists who flocked to the Surfers Point event site to catch the finals of the women’s competition. 

Despite grey skies, the rain held off and a large crowd gathered around the beach walkway to cheer on winner Sally Fitzgibbons and runner up Tyler Wright after the final. 

Sunday crowds are expected to be even bigger with the final of the men’s competition expected to kick off sometime in the morning.
