BELLS BEACH, Victoria/Australia (Tuesday, April 19, 2011); Epic surf conditions are predicted for the 50th anniversary of the Rip Curl Pro presented by Ford Ranger at Bells Beach this Easter. The Rip Curl Pro for both the men’s and women’s have been starved of great surf in recent years, but this years forecast is looking extremely promising.
Coastalwatch, official surf forecasters for the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, are calling for a new 3-4 foot groundswell with clean mostly offshore to begin building on Wednesday. On Thursday, a stronger building trend with wave heights increasing throughout the day before peaking at 4-6 foot on Friday, gradually easing off into the weekend, but still 3-5 foot surf until mid-next week.
The Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach presented by FORD will take place at Victoria’s pristine Bells Beach from April 19 – 30, 2011 and be webcast LIVE via live.ripcurl.com and broadcast live on Fuel TV in Australia and ESPN in Brazil.
