Surf fans around the world are counting down the days as the WSL and Rip Curl prepares to bring this one-of-a-kind invitational tuberiding event to a global audience for a third straight year. Sixteen of the world’s top tube masters – eight of Indonesia’s finest and eight of the world’s best barrel riders – are ready to take over the show from the CT’s Top 34.
