The Portuguese Challenger Series event continues to grow as a fan and surfers' favorite.

The World Surf League (WSL) Europe and Vissla together announced the signing of a 3-year naming sponsorship deal for the Men & Women combined Challenger Series (CS) event, the MEO Vissla Pro Ericeira at the iconic right-hand pointbreak of Ribeira d'Ilhas in Portugal.


After hosting big events in Australia on the Central Coast and Sydney in 2018 and 2019, this marks the first time Vissla gets involved to support a major professional event in Europe where the brand continues to build a strong presence in the surfing market..


With the continuing support of Tourism Portugal, MEO, EDP and the city council of Mafra, this event continues to grow as one of the most important and prestigious stops on tour, both in Europe and on the world stage.


Scheduled in the prime season for conditions on the Atlantic coastline, the MEO Vissla Pro Ericeira will be Stop No.2 of 4 on the 2021 Challenger Series calendar, and the first of two on the continent when it comes to town in early October.
