Stage Set for Vans World Cup at Sunset Beach

While the World Title showdowns will always take center stage this time of year, the Vans World Cup at Sunset Beach is where much of the real drama resides. As the final Qualifying Series event of the season, this is where careers are both made and broken, as competitors fight to earn the last precious few spots on the following year's Championship Tour roster. Heading into this year's competition there are roughly four open slots left up for grabs, with more than a dozen surfers battling for them. On the opening day of the event window the WSL commentary crew breaks down all the fine details of the big battle ahead.
