The Waterman Stand Up World Tour gets underway later this month and we thought we would bring you a couple of videos to whet your appetite and to give you some idea of what you can expect. The Sunset Beach Pro and Turtle Bay Women’s Pro kicks off on the 8th of February and the first video gives an insight into the standard of riding and calibre of waves you can hope for.
Packed with moments from previous years events, the perfect conditions and high grade of riding are a delight to watch and will leave you wanting more. Late drops, feathering lips, barrels and gorgeous weather set the scene for what will be an exhilarating competition with the worlds best, desperate to win the first event of the year.
On the 26th of May the Stand Up World Tour will roll into Tahiti following a lay year in 2013, and for me, will be the stop on the tour I will not want to miss. Competitors will battle it out in thick lipped barrels over shallow reefs and the event is sure to be filled with knuckle whitening rides and stomach churning wipeouts. The second video gives you a taster of the Tahiti Pro and the perfect waves the competitors will tackle. You can be sure you will see the elite riders of the world enjoying some of the best shacks of their lives.
