Surfing Champions Trophy August 7 to 13, 2017

Taj Burrow, Champion, Surfing Champions Trophy 2016

It’s back! The 7th annual Four Seasons Maldives Annual Surfing Champions Trophy has got off to a flying start with Australian aerial innovator, Taj Burrow, confirming his return to defend his title.

Hailing from Western Australia, Taj lit up last year’s competition with his dynamic surfing and cheerful demeanour. Following a win in the thruster division, he took the title by pipping one of his childhood heroes – big wave legend Shane Dorian – to the post during a Grand Final head-to-head; an experience that he described as “like a dream come true.”

Also returning to the event is Four Seasons Explorer – the Maldives’ ultimate surf vessel. Following a full interior refurbishment, the 39m/128ft catamaran will proudly be showcasing sleek new finishes and stylish soft furnishings across all three decks while hosting the contest.

Fans can get up close to all of the action with onboard VIP passes, then continue the ‘surf tour’ experience with shoulder-rubbing events back at Four Seasons Resort Kuda Huraa – the ‘homeport’ for the event’s competitors, judges and Tropicsurf partners.

Event Co-ordinator Mark Winson of Tropicsurf comments, “It’s great to be celebrating the Surfing Champions Trophy’s seventh year with not only a refurbished Four Seasons Explorer but also new accommodation options at Kuda Huraa. But as ever, it’s the innovations on the waves that really matter and if the current interest level is anything to go by, we are going to have some really exciting announcements in the coming months.”

To book the event surf package – or secure limited VIP day passes – contact the Resort at reservations.mal@fourseasons.com or call +960 66 00 888.
