The Nelson Mandela Bay Surf Pro pres. by Billabong, the Buffalo City Surf Pro pres. by Reef Wetsuits and the Corona Durban Surf Pro pres. by Quiksilver and Roxy each comprised Qualifying Series (QS) events for Men and Women alongside Junior Qualifying Series (JQS) events for Men and Women aged 18-and-under.

Featuring more than 100 top South Africans and a dozen international competitors at each stop, the events delivered dynamic performances as the surfers pitted their skills against a range of different waves and conditions in the quest for trophies, prize money and points on the international and regional rankings lists.

An outreach program conducted by Surfing South Africa, the national controlling body for the sport, enabled young surfers to experience the surfing lifestyle at each event.

The premiere of the first 30-minute show in the series, the Nelson Mandela Bay Surf Pro, is on SuperSport channel 208 (SS8) on Tuesday 2 May at 19h30, with several repeat broadcasts at various times during the rest of the week.
