Tudor goes on a huge wave. Let´s beat her
From Winter 2021/2022, TUDOR will be partnering with the World Surf League on its two legendary Big Wave events, the TUDOR Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge presented by Jogos Santa Casa in Nazaré, Portugal and the Quiksilver Jaws Big Wave Challenge presented by TUDOR in Maui, Hawaii.
Big wave surfing is both daring and exclusive. Only a handful of women and men worldwide can surf the 20-plus meter high monster waves of Nazaré, the Portuguese fishing town that is home of the tallest surfable waves in the world.
Not many more dare to venture out at Jaws (Pe’ahi) in Maui, Hawaii on any day of the year. The official holding period for the WSL Big Wave competitions runs from November 15, 2021 through March 31, 2022. Each competition will take place on the best day of waves during the holding period and event officials will monitor swell-producing storms, watching for the precise conditions that will produce waves in the competition range.
Once the call is made the competitors will have 72-hours notice to travel to these destinations and be ready to compete. In keeping with its founding #BornToDare spirit, TUDOR will be the title partner of the Nazaré event and the presenting partner of the Jaws event

He created the Montres TUDOR SA Company in 1946 to offer watches with the quality and dependability of a Rolex, at a more affordable price point.
Because of their robustness and affordability, throughout their history TUDOR watches have been chosen by the boldest adventurers on land, underwater and on ice. Today, the TUDOR collection includes emblematic models such as Pelagos, Black Bay, 1926 and Royal.
