Basics

The North Shore of Oahu is world famous for its powerful winter waves that can rise up to the height of 7 surfboards stacked up end to end! No wonder it’s crowned as surfing’s most legendary arena!

The Vans Triple Crown of Surfing consists of 3 surfing competitions–the Vans World Cup of Surfing, the Hawaiian Pro and the Billabong Pipe Masters. These determine who will go on to the World Surf League’s World Title – the highest prestige in competitive surfing.

Winning any of the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing events is a great feat already, but the biggest honour and prize ($50,000) goes to the surfer who performs best across all 3 events. In total, the prize money from all 3 events exceeds 1 million dollars.

And yet, it’s completely free for anyone to watch. Truly, the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing is the epitome of the Hawaiian Aloha Spirit which celebrates the joyful sharing of life. Those picture-perfect stunts by the best of the best in surfing will most certainly take your breath away.
