Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach

The Rip Curl Virtual Pro

The Surf Comp You Didn't Know You Were A Part Of.

We created the world’s first digital surf competition and didn’t let anyone know.
Introducing the Rip Curl Virtual Pro presented by Tourism Fiji: a surfing contest that has taken place completely in hindsight.

Everyone* with a Rip Curl SearchGPS watch who tracked their surfs within the SearchGPS app between the 4th to 14th March, 2023,
is eligible to enter to win the ultimate surfing holiday to Namotu Island, Fiji.
*who has explicitly opt-in to email marketing from Rip Curl.


The Rip Curl Virtual Pro

Yes, you read that right... you might have just competed in your very first surf comp and you didn't even know it.
Every time you surfed, we scored it. Making you a wildcard in the very first Rip Curl Virtual Pro presented by Tourism Fiji.

We tracked every surf and analysed your data from your Rip Curl SearchGPS watch and scored you in real-time.
The scoring criteria was based on 2 key metrics: wave length and wave speed. Bonus points were allocated for surfing a new locationand cadence (a wave every 4 minutes).

The Prizes:


You and four mates score the ultimate surf holiday to Namotu Island Fiji travelling 18 - 23 June 2023 (Check the terms and conditions for more information). Including flights, 5 nights’ accommodation, brand new wetsuits and a $500AUD Rip Curl voucher each. A package worth over $40,000 AUD!
