COMPETITION FORMAT

Each surfer will get a total of two passes or six minutes for their competition run, with the exception of the Novice division which will have seven minutes to complete their two-pass run. The Novice division is encouraged to attempt at least one backside run, though it is not required. Scoring begins when the surfer passes the start/stop buoy OR drops the rope. There is no fall limit and falls will not affect the score, but will take away from time on the wave.

The top three podium finishers in each division will be awarded during two ceremonies (morning and afternoon).
