SANTA MONICA, California (Wednesday, April 7, 2021) - ABC today announced their Summer 2021 premiere dates, revealing that ‘The Ultimate Surfer' series will make its debut on Monday, August 16 at 10 p.m. EST/PST following the premiere of the ‘Bachelor in Paradise' newest season.

 

‘The Ultimate Surfer' will gather some of the world's greatest up-and-coming surfers to train and live together as they battle it out at the World Surf League's (WSL) state-of-the-art Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California, powered by Kelly Slater's human-made wave technology, in the hope of competing amongst the best athletes in the world's fastest-growing sport. Slater will serve as on-air talent and special correspondent for the show.

Alliances and rivalries will be front and center in ‘The Ultimate Surfer' as men and women compete in individual and team challenges focused on specific surfing disciplines. Weekly eliminations will leave two men and two women as finalists who will vie for the male and female titles of The Ultimate Surfer and the opportunity to compete on the elite WSL Championship Tour, the pinnacle of professional surfing. Slater's remarkable, one-of-a-kind, human-made wave - the most even playing field for measuring surf mastery - is at the heart of the series.

 

‘The Ultimate Surfer' is produced by Lionsgate's Pilgrim Media Group and WSL Studios. Pilgrim CEO and President Craig Piligian, WSL CEO Erik Logan, UFC President Dana White and Faye Stapleton serve as executive producers.
