Saturday, May 7 – SupFiesta Grand Prix @ Newport Aquatic Center

  • On Saturday we will hold the SupFiesta Grand Prix.
  • The Grand Prix will feature two races:  the Flyin Mile, and the Sup Scramble.
  • Competitors will compete in both races with each race counting towards their final placing.
  • The Flyin Mile will test each athlete's sheer paddling speed and endurance over this short 1-mile course.
  • The Sup Scramble will feature six turns which will showcase each athlete’s technical abilities and strategy.
  • Courses will be posted the night before the races.
  • Competitors will earn points based of placing for each event.  1 point for 1st, 2 points for 2nd 3 points for 3rd, etc.  After both events the competitor with the lowest total points will be 1st, 2nd lowest points will be 2nd, etc.  In the event of a tie, the Sup Scramble will be the tie breaker, meaning the competitor with the lowest place in the Sup Scramble will win the tie break.

Junior Pro heats will be 20 minutes, with a maximum of 4 surfers per heat.  Surfers will be judged on their top 2 waves out of a maximum of 10 waves.  The top 2 surfers from each preliminary heat will advance to the next round.

Judging Criteria

Surfers will be judged on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest possible score.  Judges will be looking for wave selection, length of ride, and functional maneuvers displaying speed, power and flow in the critical section of the wave.  Penalties will be given upon an interference call for either positionint/"right of way"  errors and to those who receive more than 1 warning to remain standing during the heat, unless there is inherent danger.  See Beach Marshall before heat for further information.
