  • Ranking Event (Saturday) 8:00am
    The main event. 16 competitors only in each men’s division (shortboard and single fin). The result of this event will determine a ranking from 1 to 16. First place in each division for Women’s and Men’s will receive the official See You In The Soup trophy for the year.
  • Skins Event (Sunday)
    The ‘secondary’ result of your hard work in the ranking event. 15 Man-on-man heats per division with the first ranked winner from the ranking event starting the round, and hence having the most opportunity at winning the most heats in a row. Instant knockout. Each heat winner stays in the water to take on the next challenger. Sponsored prize given for each heat won.
  • Divisions:
    – Standard shortboard – open women/open mens.
    – Single fin (logger, or singlefin shortboard if conditions dictate) – open women/open mens.
