Contest Rules and Regulations

  • This is not a traditional surf contest so there are no single winners, rather a series of expressions sessions with four awards to be granted in each session:
    • Wave of the day award
    • Best wipeout award
    • Longest wave award
    • Best style award   
  • The last heat will be the Stranger Things Session - where surfers will only surf vintage boards and can win a spot in the heat by either winning the "Wave of the Day Award" or the "Best Style Award"
  • We will also host a PARTY WAVE Session - hosted by key sponsors and we will try to get as may surfers on one wave (foamies are the preferred vehicle for safety reasons).
