Moreover, the World Surf League has a few surprises in store for 2018, including the Founders Cup, which kicks off on 5 May. The historic event will see surfers from five regions – USA, Brazil, Australia, Europe and World – facing off at a world-class, man-made wave venue in California.
How to watch the World Surf League

To watch the World Surf League you’ll need the Sports Pack, priced at $29/month. However, this is a Premium Pack, so you also need to add a Starter Pack to your subscription to be able to access it.
