The competition is open to competitors from any country, and will also determine Canadian National Titles in each division, as well as primary selection for U-18, U-16 and Longboard National teams.

"Rip Curl is proud to continue our longstanding partnership with Surf Canada," said Nick Russell, Vice President Sales and Marketing at Rip Curl Canada. "This is an exciting year for surfing. The opportunity of having Canada represented at the sports debut at the Olympics is massive for Surfing in this country.

Current women’s Canadian champion Bethany Zelasko and men’s champion Peter Devries are just two of the familiar names who will be hitting the water in search of the 2020 National Champion Pro title. The pair will be joined in the lineup by the sensational Olin sisters, Mathea and Sanoa, as well as Canadian super star Noah Cohen and U16 Champion Reed Platenius.

"With the building excitement of 2020 as an Olympic year and Surfing’s first inclusion into The Games, we are stoked to showcase and test the best of Canadian Talent at the Rip Curl Pro Nationals leading up to Tokyo 2020, the biggest sporting event on the planet" said Dom Domic, Executive Director of Surf Canada. "We are also excited to announce that we have added a Pro class which attracts international surfers and the U16 division is a direct qualifier for the Rip Curl GromSearch North American Final at the world class BSR Wavepool in Waco, Texas this fall."
