A Waste Wise Event

The Rip Curl Pro is a Waste Wise event, so we ask you to please keep the place clean this April and support us in out endeavour to reduce impact on the surrounding environment. Bells Beach is part of Point Addis Marine National Park and Surfing Reserve, so deserves all of our respect.

The base location is Bells Beach, Victoria about a 70-minute drive from Melbourne.

The Rip Curl Pro is a mobile event, with back up venues of Winki Pop (Immediately adjacent to Bells) and Johanna (160km from Bells Beach along the Great Ocean Road) in case surf conditions are not favourable at Bells.

Please be aware that the Bells Beach Surfing and Recreational Reserve does not allow dogs on site for the duration of the event.
