Throughout surfing history, Sunset has been known as the proving ground for the world's best. Although often overshadowed today by high performance waves like Pipe and Off The Wall, Sunset's unpredictability makes it an iconic staple of the Vans Triple Crown. Hawaiian Billy Kemper is a regular in the unruly lineup. "Sunset can be your best friend or your worst enemy in a matter of three seconds", said Kemper. With various swell directions and sizes, the Vans World Cup provides a last ditch effort for those still trying to qualify for the Championship Tour.
