Golden Anniversary for Rip Curl Pro

Next month Bells Beach, Australia will host its 50th Rip Curl Pro event. The competition will take place April 19 through the 30th, 2011 and will bring in both the top male and female surfers from around the world.

Everyone is excited to celebrate the Golden Anniversary of the Rip Curl Pro event and be a part of a monumental accomplishment. From Rip Curl’s website they quote Brodie Carr, ASP International CEO; Bells Beach not only holds a special place in the hearts of Australians but well within the global surfing community as a whole. The aura surrounding the venue borders on the spiritual and the event never fails to deliver memorable experiences. Congratulations are in order to both Rip Curl, Surfing Victoria and the Bells Beach community on celebrating their 50th year in operations this season. I wouldn t miss it for the world.

Industry moguls and riders alike appreciate the honor held in receiving a Bells Beach title.

Rip Curl notes Kelly Slater (USA), 39, reigning 10-time ASP World Champion, has claimed four prestigious Bells titles ( 94, 06, 08, 10) and with a win at the opening event of the season on the Gold Coast, will have his sights on defending his title at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach in 2011.

“The Bells trophy is probably one of – if not the – most sought after trophies in professional surfing, Slater said. Anyone who has ever gotten a Bell has talked proudly of it. It s like winning a World Title trophy.”
