Run at Cabarita Beach in the beautiful Tweed; the location provides competitors with spectacular surfing conditions. Backup beaches within a 15-minute drive are also available as event locations, providing surfers and spectators ease of access to the best waves nearby. As an important stop on the Qualifying Series and Junior Tour, surfers will travel from around the country to compete in the Tweed Coast Pro to win WSL points and prize money.

The number of points offered at each QS event varies from 1000 to 5000, with a higher number of points generally indicating better competition and more prize money.
