So in this segment we’ll talk briefly about the sport of surfing, the competitive structure and how surfers take the environment pretty seriously.
As it stands the World Surfing League (WSL) is the governing body of the sport. For the men’s shortboard tour they have 11 stops scattered around the globe, they’ve selected the most high-performance waves and locales. They’ve also got some of the most challenging waves in the world as stops on the tour, the main one being Teahupo’o in Tahiti. This reef break has the ability to produce waves of over three-stories high! (Definitely, not for the fainthearted!).
