Contrary to most of the events on the pro circuit, the Rip Curl Pro Search WCT hold what is officially called an ASP Floating License , which means that it can set up wherever they want, depending on where the best waves are.
In 2006, Rip Curl had chosen Central America and the Mexican coast to host a stage of Fosters ASP circuit for the first time. The 4th stage of the Dream Tour took place between June 20th and July 1st 2006, in Puerto Escondido region. The site offered on the longest and the most tubular waves of the season.
These spots represent the spirit of the Search perfectly, the philosophy of the Rip Curl brand blending the world class performances of the worlds 44 best surfers and one exceptional surf trip. Two years ago, Rip Curl was in St Leu (Reunion Island). In 2006, it was Mexicos turn to show off its perfect waves.
