"Having an event in Puerto Rico is almost a draw to keep me on Tour all year, because I couldn't imagine having an event in my backyard and not being able to be there," added Kelly Slater.

The Western coast of the island eagerly awaits the arrival of the Rip Curl Pro Search 2010. The exact location won't be known until closer to the dates; contest organizers are waiting until the optimal wave conditions to pinpoint exactly which wave the competitors will surf. With more than 30 top rated spots to surf on the West coast of Puerto Rico, they’ll have many options to choose from. More than 50 of the world’s best men and women professional surfers will come to compete in Puerto Rico’s sparkling blue water coasts.
The contest is schedule for an approximate two week window between the end of October and beginning of November 2010. The Rip Curl Pro Search Event in Puerto Rico is one of the final stops in the ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals) World Tour. Rip Curl has sponsored the globally-mobile competition since 2005. This particular event is held in new locations across the globe each year and is slated to make a big splash in the Caribbean this fall. Rincon Puerto Rico will be filled with tourists looking to enjoy the festivities sponsored by Rip Curl, Coors Light, the leading beer of Puerto Rico, and many other local companies.
One surfer who has experienced the waves of Puerto Rico is 38-year-old World Tour veteran Taylor Knox. "It's a great place to have the Search event, because we're going to have plenty of options and waves to choose from," said Taylor Knox, who finished runner-up at the 2006 Rip Curl Pro Search. "Rip Curl has been really good at picking places that have more than one wave option and I think it's great to do something new by heading to the Caribbean."
"Having an event in Puerto Rico is almost a draw to keep me on Tour all year, because I couldn't imagine having an event in my backyard and not being able to be there," added Kelly Slater. The nine-time ASP World Champion hails from nearby Cocoa Beach, in Florida, and knows the Caribbean waves well. "I have a lot of great memories of Puerto Rico - all the first wins I had internationally as a kid were there and I surfed a lot of contests there when I was younger. I'm looking forward to getting there." (Source: http://www.live.ripcurl.com)
