The Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach is scheduled every Easter. As you know, Easter can move about by several weeks from year to year, but it is based upon lunar cycles (I think it's the first full moon after the March Equinox or something). Anyway, it means the surf contest always held at a good time for tides etc which play into good surfing conditions. The surrounding coastline has several other beaches, so that if a the wind is a bit dodgy for Bells, they can move it a couple of miles up or down to a break with a more suitable aspect.
