Including a Standalone Women's Event

The second contest in the global Surf Web Series – The Rip Curl E-Pro Online Surf Event South Africa, kicks off on August 1 and will run through to a final on August 15. This is the second event in the global tour, followin the first already run to completion in Mexico. Due to the recent run of amazing surf in South Africa, competition organisers have allowed competitors to enter any waves that were surfed from 1 March 2019 until 25 July 2020.

It is a simple format, with surfers entering one wave (one clip) per heat. Every heat they advance they have to utilise another wave and another clip. This is where the strategy comes in, with surfers deciding where to drop their best clips. The Surf Web Series is a direct response to the current challenges the sport is experiencing under COVID-19. Primarily it is all about having some fun, showcasing some excellent clips and some incredible South African waves. Davey Van Zyl, Beyrick De Vries, and Dylan Lightfoot are amongst some of the local entrants to the unprecedented comp.

After the South African event, the tour moves to Japan, and will then head out for the rest of the tour. It culminates with a world ranking, and a Global Final, where surfers from different countries will come up against each other for the Surf Web Series World Title. Details of the full tour can be found on the website surfwebseries.com.
