If you ask Jordy Smith, he’ll tell you that “Keramas, to me, is the most high-performance wave on the planet.” Which is excellent to know, since this morning news broke that Keramas will be a dream tour event in 2013. Rounding out the tour to 10 events, the Oakley Pro Bali will be stop five, held in June between the Volcom Fiji Pro and the Billabong Pro, Tahiti. It’s the first time there’s been a world tour event in Indonesia since the the Rip Curl Pro Search in 2008.
Keramas will be the primary venue, but Oakley’s also green-lit Canggu as a backup location. While they’ve owned the Oakley World Junior Champs at Keramas for some time now, this will be Oakley’s first foray into the big leagues as main sponsor for a Dream Tour event. So, the world tour event now looks like this:
– Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast – March 2 – 13, 2013
– Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach – March 27 – April 7, 2013
– Billabong Rio Pro – May 8 – 19, 2013
– Volcom Pro Fiji – June 2 – 14, 2013
– Oakley Pro Bali – June 18 – 29, 2013
– Billabong Pro Teahupo’o – August 15 – 26, 2013
– Hurley Pro at Trestles – September 15 – 21, 2013
– Quiksilver Pro France – September 27 – October 7, 2013
– Rip Curl Pro Portugal – October 9 – 20, 2013
– Billabong Pipe Masters – December 8 – 20, 2013
You’ll be glued to the thing for days straight come June 18, so y’may as well go acquaint yourself with the contest site over here.
