Cloudbreak Selected For 2025 World Surf League Finals

This morning, the World Surf League announced that Cloudbreak, Fiji, will host the 2025 WSL Final – a winner-takes-all finale that will crown the men’s and women’s World Champions and conclude the 2025 Championship Tour season.

Cloudbreak, a legendary left about 2.5 kilometers off the coast of Tavarua, is widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest waves. It is currently set to host the 2024 Corona Fiji Pro – the final regular season event for the 2024 Championship Tour – which will determine the five men and women to advance to the WSL Finals.

Here at NZ Surf Journal we’re thrilled that Cloudbreak is making a return to the WSL after a seven-year hiatus. Not having the world’s best wave in a World Championship Tour seemed criminal. Replacing it with the yawn-fest finals day at Lower Trestles didn’t help. A finals day at Pipeline was a true spectacle – a fitting way to end the yearly grind for our best surfers and surf contest fans. Cloudbreak may not be the birthplace of surfing like the North Shore, but it is a wave of consequence, challenging (and often besting) the world’s greatest surfers. It barrels over a sharp, shallow reef, and can hold, as we saw this year, just about any size swell thrown at it. It is the perfect venue to test the best of the best – and eventually crown a world champion. If it’s pumping, we’ll be in for a treat that will dazzle the world.

“As our surfers continue to push the limits at every event, Cloudbreak will be the perfect place to showcase their progression and crown our World Champions next year,” explained Ryan Crosby, WSL CEO, in a recent press release.

Brent Hill, CEO of Tourism Fiji is equally excited about the move.

“We are stoked that the World Surf League has chosen Cloudbreak, Fiji, as the venue for the 2025 WSL Finals. Our waves and warm hospitality await surf enthusiasts from around the world. We look forward to showcasing Fiji as a world-class surfing destination. This event boosts our global visibility as well as uplifts communities and inspires our local surfers. Vinaka vakalevu, WSL, for recognizing Fiji as the ultimate destination for this event.”

Although the dates for the event have yet to be announced, the 2024 Corona Fiji Pro is scheduled from August 20-29th. Keep a keen eye out, as this isn’t an event you’ll want to miss!
