Quiksilver Pro G-Land returns to the 2020 WSL World Surf Tour


Quiksilver and the World Surf League have made surfing history.

They have announced the return of the most anticipated and exciting surf event in 25 years, the Quiksilver Pro G-Land, which will hold a coveted spot on the 2020 WSL Championship Tour from June 4-14, 2020.

The Quiksilver Pro G-Land will offer surfers on the tour the ultimate challenge, taking them out of their comfort zones and into one of the most remote locations in competitive surfing history in Grajagan Bay, Indonesia. The competition will make its much-awaited return to the raw, remote location where the jungle meets the ocean and let the world’s most talented surfers take on the waves.

The announcement has been pioneered by Quiksilver and confirms the whispers within the surfing community for a number of years. It was Quiksilver who brought the inaugural Quiksilver Pro G-Land to the tour in 1995 and challenged surfers to take on the isolated conditions, with Kelly Slater winning the first competition and inspiring the infamous ‘Dream Tour’.

Twenty five years after the Asian Financial Crisis marked the end of the G-Land event, the brand is bringing it back to the tour for 2020, continuing to showcase Quiksilver’s commitment to surf travel and chasing the perfect waves.
Competing in the most exciting contest in surfing history will be the winners of this year’s world championship tour.

Garry Wall, General Manager of Quiksilver, said: “Bringing the Quiksilver Pro G-Land back to the surf calendar has long been an ambition of Quiksilver and 2020 is the perfect time for our surfers to get back out to Grajagan Bay and really return to raw. As a brand we want to challenge our athletes and inspire future generations, and this competition will do just that, it’s time for a little disruption.”

Kelly Slater, unprecedented Surf Champion and inaugural winner of the Quiksilver G-Land Pro, said: “The greatest ever tour event is back! Great move. Might need to win that thing again…”
