Here is the complete 2019 WSL schedule for the men's and women's championships. And all the 2019 WSL results.

The wind has turned off-shore, tides are favourable and the best surfers in the world are ready to take on waves of consequence. Are you prepared for the 2019 WSL Championship? Thankfully, you never have to miss a wave or a wipeout, with a live stream of each and every event unfolding via Facebook. If Facebook isn't your thing, there are other ways to enjoy the WSL live stream.

On both the men's and women's sides of the WSL draw, anything could happen in 2019.

In the men's event, former champions Kelly Slater, Adriano De Souza and John John Florence return to competition after dour 2018 seasons. Gabriel Medina will look to go back-to-back, while Jordy Smith, Julian Wilson and Felipe Toledo proved last season they're right on the cusp of maiden titles. In addition, there are four rookies keen to impress.

In the women's competition, the incredible Australian Stephanie Gilmore will be striving for a stunning eighth WSL Championship title. But former winners Tyler Wright and Carissa Moore are certainly in the hunt, while Lakey Peterson, Tatiana Weston-Webb and Johanne Defay will want to capitalise on breakout 2018 seasons. Then there's Aussie Sally Fitzgibbons: is 2019 finally her year?

How do WSL Championship events work?

You'll notice on the WSL schedule below there are no locked-in dates for competition in the world surfing calendar. As events are so reliant on weather and swell conditions, instead there's an event window. While forecasts can predict likely days of competition, a call is made each morning on whether to run a full schedule of rounds, competition during certain parts of the day or to register a "lay day" (with competition called off).

It's also possible for competition to start and then be called off if conditions change or the spectacle simply isn't up to scratch. The WSL events are structured to be flexible, so staying agile on these days as a spectator is important. This is why services like Kayo Sports are excellent to have on hand.

In 2019, the men's and women's competitions are more aligned than ever before. As you'll notice in the schedule below, there's very little variation between them. It means during the event window, the men's and women's rounds can be interwoven, or act independently, based on how the conditions best suit the two championships' specific strengths.
