Conditions of Entry:
WP Surfing Champs is open to all paid up members of WP Surfing (Cape Town Surfriders). This is a Club (SSA Surf District – CTS) contest and as such is open to Club/District members only. For those CTS district surfers that have not participated in events this year and essentially are not paid up members for the 2017 year, we would like to encourage you to enter, but you will need to fill out the membership form ( click here for membership form) and either pay a special discounted rate of R50 for the remainder of the 2017 membership year or, pay the full membership fee (R150) and we will credit you for membership for the 2018 calendar year. Please note that per SSA rules, surfers who are members of other districts i.e. Cape Winelands, are not permitted to enter WP Surfing Champs. Please also note that this membership fee excludes the WP Champs entry fee of R200 (+R150 for second entry) which would still need to be paid for entry to this event. Surfers that wish to enter more than one division are only permitted to enter their respective age division and a second division as follows:
- Surfers in the U14 division who surfed WP Trials may enter U16 as a second division.
- Surfers in the U16 division who surfed WP Trials may enter U18 as a second division.
- Surfers in the U18 division who surfed WP Trials may surf in the Open as a second division.
- U16 surfers who have been awarded national colours may surf in the Open in addition to U16.
- All qualifying surfers may surf in a maximum of 2 divisions.
- If a surfer enters only one division it must be their age division.
- Age divisions above Open may surf their age division and the Open division.
A minimum of three paid up entrants are required to surf a division. Should there be less than three entrants, those entrants will be consolidated with the division immediately above in the case of divisions below the Open division, and immediately below in divisions above the Open division.
Entries close on the 28th November. Late entries will be accommodated on a first apply, first accepted basis, provided that the entry does not result in additional heats being created and that the person pays all relevant entry fees on acceptance. WP Surfing reserves the right to make changes to entry procedures as it sees fit.
Entry fee includes goodie bag and finalists in each division receive medals with winners in each division receiving prizes.
The WP Surfing Champs will be run over the three day period 1- 3 December (Fri, Sat & Sun) at Long Beach. The plan is to run the U12 and U14 divisions (Boys and Girls 1st and 2nd rounds) on Friday afternoon, commencing 3pm and other divisions on Saturday and Sunday (8am start) and ideally have all the finals on the Sunday. The Liveheats livescoring system will be used at the contest as will the priority system. Depending on entry numbers, we anticipate the event ending at lunchtime on Sunday and we plan to have the prizegiving at either Lighthouse or Fisherman’s restaurant thereafter.
The decisions of the committee will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
