Rip Curl Search Puerto Rico

AFTER an amazing first five years on The Search with the ASP World Tour's best surfers, Rip Curl are excited about calling Puerto Rico home for 2011.

"A lot of research, planning and hard work was put into choosing this year's destination and we're looking forward to seeing what the North Shore of Puerto Rico will serve up. We're hoping for flawless surf yet again and are sure that the world's best male and female surfers will put on a show for the thousands expected on the beach and millions watching around the world on live TV or via the live webcast.

"On behalf of Rip Curl, I would like to personally thank Tourism Puerto Rico for their major involvement, plus the people and surfers of Puerto Rico for welcoming us into your country. I'd also like to thank the ASP and the ASP World Tour surfers for coming on The Search with us again. Good luck."
