Competition details 2017

This year there are 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.

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 an Open division will
return and the Club champion will be determined from this group. Your
placement in the groups will be determined by your placing in the comps
2016. 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 will pay. Several members
completed this course last year. Ryan Egan is our head judge this year
with others to back him up.
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 Sunday
24th 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 the weekend of June 17th/18th.
The 3 comps for the Triple Crown are the Winter Classic Geraldton on
June 3-4th, Whalebone July 7-9th and Yal Mal at Yallingup December2-
3rd. Whalebone entry forms are out now.

The next State rounds will be at Avalon Mandurah June 23-25th. 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.
Our club will be hosting the Interclub this year at Iso’s and the planned
date is 26th August.
We are also looking at a competition with Surf Beach Boardrider’s at
Secret Harbour. It is likely to be in Sept/Oct when it’s the best time for
banks there.

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. At times
the number of waves to be caught in a heat may be reduced- it is
normally 10 to a heat.

Results for all the comps so far will be posted soon.
