Photos: Surfbreak Rentals' Launch Party at Public Works

On November 5, surfing aficionados from the Bay Area and around the world descended on Surfbreak Rentals' Launch Party—held at Public Works and supported by SF trendsetters Sanfranpsycho—during the world-renowned Rip Curl Pro Search.

Get Ready To Rip: Ocean Beach's Rip Curl Pro Search Surf Contest Starts Tomorrow

On Tuesday, November 1, the Rip Curl Pro Search, set “somewhere in San Francisco,” officially opens. It’s an event that has been anticipated by the local surf community for months and many of the world’s best surfers have been spotted at Ocean Beach in recent days, adjusting to the cold water and unique waves. After all the hype, it’s time for the big show. Let the surfing begin.

Ocean Beach to Host Pro Surfing Competition in November

Any local surfer knows that Ocean Beach can be a gnarly, currenty, beachbreak of a mess. The water is frigid, the waves unpredictable. But on calm days, usually in the fall, Ocean Beach can produce some gloriously glassy waves. And that’s just what the Association of Surfing Professionals is banking on. 

On Sunday morning, the ASP announced that Ocean Beach will host the 10th event of their World Tour. The competition will bring 35 pros from around the globe to battle it out on the unpredictable waves at Kelly’s Cove. Because there’s no guarantee that our local waves will cooperate, the ASP has given a two-week window (November 1-11) for the competition.
