Thus far the waiting period for the 2019 Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach has not been great; we’ve seen medium-sized swell, mediocre winds and an inconsistent, small Bells Bowl. Sure, the world’s best have battled it out in Rounds 1 and 2 around the cliff at Winki… which was contestable and viewable… but we haven’t seen the Bowl at its best.
Until now. As the last three days of the waiting period approach we are seeing the start of what could be the best Bells we’ve seen since 1981… or 2006… those BIG years, where the wild Victorian coastline offered up long lines and powerful, rugged swell. The stars have aligned, the charts are becoming more and more clear, and from the looks of things the ocean is about to deliver.
Tune in to the final three days of the 2019 Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach. It will be ON, it will be BIG, and in the 50th year of surfing at Rip Curl, it will be one for the books.
