In 1995, the Billabong Challenge introduced the idea of two-week waiting period that put a premium on running events in quality waves. That same year, Quiksilver dared to host an event at the reef point perfection of Indonesia’s G-Land. With the G-land Quiksilver Pro, the precedent of a contest driven primarily by wave quality, whether large audiences could physically access the venue or not, was established. This single event put the “bums on the beach” mentality squarely into question.
