Surf-Tourism: Fiji, the 'Jewel in the crown'


WHAT Brazil is to football, New Zealand to rugby union, Australia to rugby league, Cloudbreak Fiji is to surfing.

Its like a religion. Making that one stop at Tavarua Island to glide the unique wave is a dream for the elite in the sport. Jon Roseman described it best on the eve of the opening of the Volcom Fiji Pro.

It is the jewel in the crown, he enthused.

Cloudbreak is a world class wave known throughout the surfing world, so it only makes sense to bring the worlds best surfers here.

   

After a three-year hiatus from the ASP Dream Tour, the Volcom Fiji Pro will host the world’s best surfers from 2012 through 2014

There is potential for further extension from the current three-year license agreement.
“Our partnership with Volcom has grown over the last several years from their support of our athletes to the sponsoring of the ASP 5-Star Pipe event and now as a licensee for an ASP World Title event,” Brodie Carr, ASP Intl CEO, said.

The best big wave surfers of all time


Big wave surfing is the ultimate celebration of extreme surfing. Challenging deadly waves in harsh weather and ocean conditions takes a very serious approach.

Big wave surfers are not interested in performance. Forget perfect cutbacks, stunning floaters or breathless aerial antics. The profile of a big wave rider is the result of several unparalleled personal characteristics.

Fear is always present in a 50-foot wave. Fear is the best way of managing the risk of paddling for a huge wave face, which doesn't tell you what is going to happen and how it is going to break.
