The World Surf League has declared the Apple Watch as its official wearable device, making it the first time the Apple Watch has been utilized as "official competitor equipment" in a professional sports environment. WSL competitors will receive either an Apple Watch Series 8 or Apple Watch Ultra before each heat, pre-loaded with the WSL Surfer app. This app provides surfers with the opportunity to access vital information in real-time, such as their current scores, wave priority, and time remaining in the heat, directly from their wrists. This partnership has been met with great enthusiasm from Eric Sue, director of Apple Watch product marketing, who expressed his delight about the collaboration.

Moreover, the second season of Apple TV+'s docuseries, Make or Break, is set to debut soon, to provide viewers an inside look at the competitive surfing world by following the world's best surfers as they fight for the ultimate title of World Champion. This series will offer a unique viewpoint into the personal lives of these athletes as they strive for the highest podium spot. With the World Surf League and Apple joining forces, the future of competitive surfing is looking brighter and more promising than ever.
