Each category progresses through a knockout format, back-to-back 20 minutes heats, followed by a final to crown a winner in each class.

A grand final will be held between the winners of each of the category, with the victor crowned the KING OF THE FINS.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE THREE ‘S’s – STYLISH, SMOOTH and STOKED

The surfer who exudes the most stylish surfing will advance and ultimately win the 5 to 1 challenge. Judges will be looking for smooth expressive surfing, linking power with flow and stoke whilst balls out going for broke. It’s not the difficulty of manouevre that counts, it’s the style with which it’s executed.

It’s all about panache and the way you cut a dash.
