Dates for the 2023/24 Victorian Open Series

Dates for the 2023/24 Victorian Open Series have been announced with the 3-event series to kick off at Bells Beach on October 7th, 2023

The series will then head to Phillip Island on February 17th, 2024 before finishing on the Mornington Peninsula on March 16th, 2024.

The series is the pathway event to the Rip Curl Pro Victorian Trials, giving one Victorian a spot in the main event at the Rip Curl Pro.

“As the lead in events to the Rip Curl Pro Trials, the Victorian Open Series is an important element to our development pathway” said Surfing Victoria CEO Adam Robertson.

“The list of surfers who have gone on to the Championship Tour and Qualifying Series have gone through the Victorian Open Series is incredible. It is a great stepping stone for surfers to progress and make it to the next level.”

Former open champions include Nikki van Dijk (Phillip Island), Xavier Huxtable (Jan Juc), India Robinson (Jan Juc), Glyndyn Ringrose (Phillip Island), Bella Wilson (Jan Juc), Troy Brooks (Jan Juc), Mark Phipps (Pt Lonsdale), Georgia Fish (Flinders) and Sophie Fletcher (Phillip Island).
