After Australia and Brazil, the Association of Surfing Professionals -ASP- is heading towards Fiji, South Africa and California. Every year between February and December, the World Tour is dominating the most beautiful waves across the planet, inspiring younger surf enthusiasts.
With stages on beaches of Australia, Chile, South Africa, Fiji, Tahiti, France, Spain, Brazil, Hawaii and United States, the APS World Tour puts in a travelling mood. With an impeccable lifestyle, those perfectly shaped and tanned athletes convey values in harmony with nature and sea. Surfing is a way of life.
To divide between these surfing icons, about ten events bring together the 34 bests surfers in the world and the Top17 women’s surfers. In 2013, Mick Fanning and Carissa Moore won the ASP World Tour.
The early summer schedule is quite busy for the riders of the ASP WCT 2014. Between June and July, the greatest surfers will compete against each other at the events of Tavarua and Namotu in Fiji, and Jeffreys Bay in South Africa. As for the Top 17, they are waiting for the two women’s contests in California late July, before going to Hossegor to take on the French waves.
