Surfing Format

For age group divisions there will be 15-minute heats of 6 surfers per heat.  Surfers will be judged on their top 2 waves out of a maximum of 10 waves.  For divisions with preliminary rounds, the top 3 surfers will advance to the next round.

Junior Pro heats will be 20 minutes, with a maximum of 4 surfers per heat.  Surfers will be judged on their top 2 waves out of a maximum of 10 waves.  The top 2 surfers from each preliminary heat will advance to the next round.

Judging Criteria

Surfers will be judged on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest possible score.  Judges will be looking for wave selection, length of ride, and functional maneuvers displaying speed, power and flow in the critical section of the wave.  Penalties will be given upon an interference call for either positionint/”right of way”  errors and to those who receive more than 1 warning to remain standing during the heat, unless there is inherent danger.  See Beach Marshall before heat for further information.
