On June 22nd and 23rd, we’ll be streaming the biggest surf event of the year, if measured by surfers’ average height above the lip per wave — Stab High Japan, presented by Monster Energy.

Here’s how you can watch.

In person

Come bump shoulders and clink glasses with us in Japan. Tickets are just $40 USD (¥6,224 / $60 AUD) for the two-day live event, which you can buy here.

Note: we’d recommend bringing a board to the event. You can book a session in the pool before/after the comp, or get a few waves down the street whenever you please — the ocean is only a three-minute walk from PerfectSwell Shizunami. 

Here’s how you get there.

Stab Premium (On-site and on the app)

Can’t make it to PerfectSwell Shizunami? We get it. 

If you’re a Stab Premium member, you can watch Stab High Japan Presented by Monster Energy online for free. If not, subscribe to Stab Premium to gain access to the event webcast, along with thousands of hours of backlogged films and original editorial, with plenty more to come. We’re offering a 10% discount to anyone who signs up for the annual membership — just use code STABHIGHANNUAL at checkout.

Event times

The event will run over two days — Saturday, June 22 – Sunday, June 23. Each day will feature around five hours of surfing, from 9 AM to 2 PM local time. If you haven’t been booking calls with your colleagues in Tokyo of late, we got you. Here’s what that looks like elsewhere, remember: If you live in the US or Europe, the event is running Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22.

New York: 8 PM – 1 AM (-1 day)
Los Angeles: 5 PM – 10 PM (-1 day)
