Vans World Cup of Surfing


November 25 – December 6:
Vans World Cup of Surfing.
The Vans World Cup makes and breaks careers as the final stop on the international QS tour, since the potential for qualification to the WSL Championship Tour (CT) – the world’s highest level of professional surfing – is at an all-time high. The event’s reputation lies in the wave itself, a consistent and powerful right-hander with a treacherous peak and a paddling arena that tests even the fittest athletes in the industry. One of the most notorious big-wave breaks on the planet, Sunset Beach produces surf from almost any swell direction raging from west to northeast and is a barometer of surfers’ endurance, grit and lineup knowledge. Situated along the North Shore’s most fragile stretch of coastline, WSL and Vans Triple Crown emphasize great care and attention when mapping the logistical structure of this event. Also incorporating a fun family vibe, Sunset Beach plays host to hundreds of visitors as they witness one of the most dramatic competitions of the year.  Sunset Beach, 59-144 Kamehameha Hwy., Haleiwa.  For information call (808) 651-8248 or visit
