Surfing legend Layne Beachley set for a comeback
Surfing legend Layne Beachley is making a comeback.
At age 46, she is participating in the World Surf League Azores Masters, the first time the competition has returned since 2011.
And it will include a women’s division for the first time.
“They’ve never had a women’s master’s before,” Beachley told Brigitte Duclos and Bill Woods.
“They’ve invited over 45, mature age surfers who believe we still got what it takes to win contests and another title.
“My form is pretty good.”
Seven-time World Champion Beachley will be joined by four-time Champion Freida Zamba, two of the most successful surfers of all-time.
The Azores Airlines World Masters Championships is set to run September 18-23, on the Atlantic shores of São Miguel, Azores.
Currently underway is the US Surf Open on Huntington Beach.
Three out of the eight surfers in the female quarter finals are Australian: Stephanie Gilmore, Sally Fitzgibbons & Nikki Van Dijk.
While for the men Dion Atkinson is our sole hope.
