This surfing competition features five categories surfing side by side at two sites: Open Waveski, Open SUP, Open Surf Kayak, and two High Fives Adaptive Surf divsions (waveski & prone/stand). Contest format: Competitors are judged on performing radical maneuvers in the most critical part of the wave. Heats are 20 minutes and competitors are judged on their top 2 or 3 rides. All open categories are double elimination and will include a repercharge (or second chance) round after round 1 for those not advancing in their intial round. After the repercharge round only the top two in each heat advance. As with past events cash prizes will be awarded! This year's event will be held on a Saturday and Sunday and is limited to: Waveski: 24 competitors SUP: 24 competitors Kayak: 20 competitors Adaptive Waveski: 16 competitors Adaptive Stand/Prone Surf: 8 competitors Also, there will be a limited number of heats for the age and womens divisions in the SUP and Waveski categories. These divisions are single elimination and will fill up fast as each division is limited to the first 8 who sign up.
