About the Venue: California's Perfect Inland Wave
The only human-made wave on the WSL Championship Tour, the Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California, offers a competitive environment unlike any other in the world. It is located more than 100 miles inland, in the heart of California's agriculture-rich Central Valley. The wave itself is a 600-meter left and a right, offering tube sections, open canvases for full-rail power maneuvers, and sections for lofting airs.
Two Events Will Decide Who Makes the Cut
Only two events are left before the Mid-season Cut narrows the field ahead of the Surf Ranch Pro, the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, April 4 - 14, and the Western Australia Margaret River Pro, April 20 - 30. Following the Surf Ranch, there will be four more opportunities for surfers to gain points in order to clinch a spot in the Final 5 and compete at the Rip Curl WSL Finals for the World Titles.
