The World Surf League has announced that its 2022 season will see four consecutive months of regional and international competition taking place across Australia.
Events will kick off in February with a series of regional men’s and women’s qualifying series and professional junior events with competitors competing for the Challenger Series and World Junior Championship positions.
Locations will include the Gold Coast; Phillip Island in Victoria; and Newcastle, the Tweed Coast, the Central Coast, Manly, Maroubra, Port Stephens and Pacific Palms in New South Wales.
These events will then be followed by the Championship Tour, with the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach taking place for the first time since 2019, followed by the Margaret River Pro in Western Australia.
It will then be followed by two Challenger Series Events in May in Coolangatta on the Gold Coast and then in Sydney.
Releasing the calendar of events for early 2022, World Surf League APAC General Manager Andrew Stark said “We are more than delighted to welcome professional competitive surfing to the Australian coast this summer.
“We had a good series of events earlier this year and are excited to see even more action during the summer and fall months of 2022.
“The spread over multiple circuits is unprecedented with multiple Junior, Qualifying, Challenger Series and Championship Tour events taking place in four states in four months.
“It will be an exciting time not only for the competitors, but also for the surf fans here in Australia and watching it live around the world.”
