World Surf League Championship Tour

Huge news for the Gold Coast as the world’s elite surfing series returns!

The Gold Coast has secured the rights to host a World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour event at Snapper Rocks for the next four years.

The World Surf League has announced the iconic point break will return to the Championship Tour schedule from 2025-2028, after a five-year hiatus.

The sand-bottomed break, located within the Gold Coast World Surfing Reserve, holds a special place in the hearts of surfers and spectators alike. Its inclusion in the Championship Tour highlights our reputation as a top-tier surfing destination.

Experience Gold Coast CEO, John Warn aptly describes the return of the WSL Championship Tour as a significant achievement for our city.

“The Championship Tour is the absolute highest level of professional surfing, so we can expect to witness the world’s biggest names in surfing competing here each year while the global broadcast showcases one of the Gold Coast’s most spectacular destinations. For surfing fans and aspiring Tour contenders, this is an incredible coup.”

Dates for the Snapper Rocks event and the full 2025 WSL Championship Tour schedule will be released later in 2024.

We look forward to welcoming the world’s best surfers back to the Gold Coast and showcasing our stunning destination as a premier sporting location on the global stage.

It’s an event with a fantastic history, held in a location that has professional surfing in its DNA. The long, perfect reeling walls of the ‘Super Bank’ is one of the wonders of the surfing world, and we can’t wait to see the world’s best competing for world championship points on one of the planet’s most high-performance waves.
