The 2022 Rip Curl WSL Finals, the final event of the 2022 World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), is ON at 8:00 a.m. PT. Pristine, four-to-six foot swell pulses through the iconic lineup of Lower Trestles to provide a canvas for the final showdown of 2022 to determine the men’s and women’s World Champions.

Women’s Match 1 will be first in the water with 35-minute heats, followed by men’s Match 1, women’s and men’s Match 2, and women’s and men’s Match 3. Then, the winners of Match 3 will face the top seeds in a best-of-three Title Match. 

The first match of the day will be a battle of the veteran vs. the rising World Title threat as seven-time World Champion Stephanie Gilmore (AUS) takes on WSL Final 5 newcomer Brisa Hennessy (CRI). 

The Women’s Match 1 will be followed by men’s Match 1, featuring a highly-anticipated fourth CT bout between 2019 WSL Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, Italo Ferreira (BRA) and World Title contender, Olympic Silver Medalist, Kanoa Igarashi (JPN).

Ten competitors will enter, and one woman and one man will leave as the new 2022 World Champions, getting to hoist the iconic WSL Champion Trophy high. The trophy is an artistic masterpiece with the previous World Champions’ names inscribed, and by the end of today, two more will be added.
