FOUR SEASONS MALDIVES CHAMPIONS TROPHY | EVENT PARTNER

After the JBay Pro is done and dusted some of the surfing world's biggest names will make their way to the magical Maldivian island paradise of Kuda Huraa, North of Male’.

In its seventh year running, the ‘world’s most luxurious surfing event’ has gone from strength to strength and 2017 is no exception with three of the six competitors already being confirmed.

2001 WSL Champion CJ Hobgood (USA) and Inspirational big wave charger Maya Gabeira (BRA)will be joining 2016 event Champion and 18-year Championship Tour (CT) veteran Taj Burrow (AUS) in the Maldives this year.

The Champions Trophy determines a surfers heat time based on their age and tests skill across three different divisions: single-fin, twin-fin, and triple-fin thruster. Places are granted by invitation-only to just six prominent professional surfers in a battle for inner-circle kudos and the US$25,000 prize winnings.

The event will run from August 7 – 13. Stay tuned for the final three invitees announcement, coming soon.
