HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Jan. 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Surf fans around the globe are gearing up for the highly anticipated Hurley)( Pro Sunset Beach 2024, set to take place at the iconic break of Sunset Beach on the North Shore of O’ahu. As the title sponsor, Hurley is stoked to play host to the world’s best surfers as they take on one of the most challenging waves on tour in what will certainly be an exceptional show of in-water ability.
As the second stop on the World Surf League (WSL) World Tour, the Hurley)( Pro serves as a crucial event that will set the tone for the entire competitive season. With the best surfers in the world in the water, each heat will be action packed, but all eyes will surely be on back to back 2x World Champion and last year’s Hurley)( Pro winner, Filipe Toledo. Says Brett Simpson, head of Sports Marketing at Hurley, “It’s always special to see how World Title winners come out the following season, and since Filipe’s run has been truly iconic, we’re all really looking forward to watching what he does with this momentum.”
This year marks the third year in a row that Hurley is the title sponsor of the Sunset Beach event, an event that solidifies Hurley as an integral part of Hawaiian surf culture. “There’s a reason we keep returning to Sunset Beach,” says Hurley’s COO Ralph Gindi, “it’s not only a beautiful wave, it’s also the perfect venue to pay tribute a place that holds so much history for our brand — and surfing as a whole. It’s truly an honor to bring the best female and male athletes here to celebrate the sport in its birthplace.”
This year, Hurley tapped Hawaiian artist Sara Saffery to bring the event to life through exclusive event artwork that will be showcased across limited edition tees, tanks, and hats. Saffery’s designs are inspired by the natural beauty of her O’ahu home and are also driven by her desire to preserve and celebrate the culture, people, and wildlife that make Hawai’i so special; a notion that perfectly aligns with the spirit of the Hurley Pro Sunset Beach. Fans will be able to purchase merchandise onsite at the contest, at select retailers, and on hurley.com.
The Hurley)( Pro Sunset Beach 2024 waiting period takes place between February 12 to February 22 and will be broadcasted live on worldsurfleague.com. Don’t miss a second of the action when you follow @hurley and @wsl on Instagram for daily updates.
