Competition details 2018
This year there will be up to 10 comps scheduled to be run either on the  
Saturday or Sunday of the weekend to give us best option for waves. If  
the comp is not held on the planned weekend we will have the option to  
move to the following weekend only. All comps are booked with the  
Cottesloe council. The call on the comp is usually made on the Wednesday/  
Thursday before the weekend, sometimes later if changing conditions.
Of the 10 comps it is planned to have 3 of these dedicated to Loggers and  
Old Mal. This could well be at a time when waves are expected to be  
smaller. With the Logger division it will be divided into 3 categories - Open,  
under 50 and Over 50. Old Mal will remain one division only.
The 7 other comps will be Performance rounds and will be judged for  
performance surfing so rewarded for speed, power and manoeuvres in  
critical part of the waves. Logger type surfing in these comps will not be  
scored as high.
Scoring in divisions for the win and place for end of year trophies will be  
the total of results from the best 3 rounds, and for Old Mal and Loggers it  
will be results from best 2 rounds.
Members will again be divided into groups and the Open division winner  
will be Club Champion. Your placement in the groups will be determined by  
your placing in the comps 2017. New members will be placed in a group  
after surfing a couple of heats.Juniors and Woman will be kept in a  
separate group.
With the Open division heats more experienced judges will only be selected  
to ensure consistency of scoring. All competitors should judge a heat or  
two on the day. A judging time sheet will be on the main board to put  
down when you can judge. Members are encouraged to attend the  
Surfing WA judging courses and the club may be able to pay. Several  
members completed this course last year.
It has now been decided by committee that in the second round of the day  
we will surf everyone again in their groups rather than mixing up heats  
according to place in first round.
The Out of Town Cup will be in Denmark and is now moved to Saturday  
23th September on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.
The Out of Country Cup will again be in Bali and comp will be held at  
Brawa beach on June 17th
The 3 comps for the Triple Crown are the Winter Classic Geraldton on June  
2-4th, Whalebone July 13-15th and Yal Mal at Yallingup December 1-2nd.  
The 1st State round was held at Yallingup Feb 16th and the next is in   
Denmark 11th May. This will be 3 day event starting on the Friday. You will  
need to join Surfing WA to compete in this - entry by Surfing WA website.  
The Interclub this year will be hosted by the Wavewalkers (Scarborough)  
and time and place still to be decided. New comps are likely this year at  
Denmark (Sept) and Avalon.  
On Competition day please be there at 7am to register. On arrival make  
sure your name tag is placed on the present board- once there are 4 or 5  
present for a group they are then put into a heat on main board. Heats  
will get under way 7.30am if ready to go.On the day the heat length time  
and number to a heat will be decided according to conditions and number  
of surfers attending. At times the maximum number of waves to be  
caught in a heat may be reduced- it is normally 10 to a heat.
