Event 1 : Kirra Billabong Pro
Its a right, perfect, perfect, perfect wave with average swell.
Event 2 : Bells Beach RipCurl Pro
One of the longest running events on tour. Medium to large sized swell. One of the best right handers.
Event 3 : Manly Beach Coca-Cola Classic
The main reason for the location of the event is not so much the wave quality as it being in the city of Sydney itself. Rips and tidal changes mean that local knowledge can be a deciding factor in heats.
Event 4 : Gotcha Tahiti Pro
The now famous left-hander is widely accepted to be the heaviest wave in the world, drawing the line between what is surfable and what isn't. Truely awesome wave.
Event 5 : Matsumato Kiyoshi Pro
After Tahiti Japan's waves seem very tame, and the generally small right-handers tend to suit the smaller, faster surfers. It's another event held more for crowd attendance than good waves.
Event 6 : Quiksilver Tavarua Pro
The break is cloud break, has a perfect left and big waves.
Event 7 : Jeffreys Bay Billabong MSF Pro
Has a perfect right hander, goes on for ever, is super hollow and super fast.
Event 8 : Huntington Beach Gotha Pro
Hold their beach break, mainly rights but also some lefts, wave quality not that good.
Event 9 : Fiscal Beach Newquay Pro
Very cold water! Fun waves.
Event 10 : Hossegor Pro
Event 11 : Hossegor Pro
Best beach break in the world, left and right peaks with epic barrels. Small to medium sized waves
Event 12 : Quiksilver G-Land Pro
Most perfect left in the world, handles any size waves with barrels from top all the way to the bottom
Event 13 : Pipe Masters
Greatest of all events, with the lefts at Pipe and the rights at Backdoor have provided some of the widest and biggest tubes ever. The hopes of the contenders are often made or broken here.
