Rip Curl Pro 2017

Rip Curl Pro Logo.jpg


The Rip Curl Pro is in its 56th year with the world’s best male and female surfers in town to compete for professional surfing’s most treasured trophy – the Rip Curl Pro Bell.  The event has been run around Easter time each year since 1973 and has been pivotal in the evolution of the sport. It holds a very special place in surfing folklore, as the longest running world championship level contest on the World Tour. 

The Rip Curl Pro takes place at world renowned Bells Beach just near Torquay ... the home of Australian Surfing.


Further event information and results are available on the World Surf League website.

The Rip Curl Pro Fact Sheet (pdf) contains information on ticket prices, shuttle bus times, merchandise and more.

Don't miss a single moment of the action!

Torquay is fully connected to all the action at Bells this year. The competition is being streamed live into 52 official Rip Curl Pro Live Site cafés, restaurants and venues throughout Torquay, Jan Juc and the surrounding area.

So relax, grab a bite to eat and let Bells Beach excitement come to you!
