Rip Curl Pro Past Champions

In it's 52 years, Bells Beach has only crowned 52 male and female winners - 32 men and 20 women. Scrolling through the former Champions reveals an elite list of surfing royalty, from Mick Fanning to Michael Peterson, Layne Beachley to Sally Fitzgibbons. As 1999 Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach Champion Shane Dorian famously put it, "No kook has ever won Bells." Here's the proof.
