(2x 12) ( 2x 14 ) (2x 16) (2×18) surfers have to be of age on the day of event (each member surfs once)
Heat Times: 20 minutes
Points Tally. 1st place (4 point ) 2nd place ( 3 point ) , 3rd place ( 2 point ) , 4th place ( 1point )
Total points and heat scores will also be tallied for overall placings at event
# Important note: there will be a 20 minute super heat , if there is a POINTS TALLY tie for the (1st placing only)
Etc , if there are multiple clubs, equal first on the points tally after 8 surfers, this Super Heat will apply, clubs can pick their best surfer, most I’d say would use an 18, but it would be up to the clubs involved.
The thought process regarding this super heat, was more about the changes that can happen in conditions during a day , so we want to have a clear cut winner
