(Reprint) Some people have asked me (Cierra) how to approach surfing these waves for the competition. Well, we tried to make it fun and interesting. First, take off is from the left/east. There’s a platform and a buoy out there to help you find your way. With multiple waves running, it is up to the surfer’s creativity to make an awesome ride. Pick the waves that make the most of your style! I have been asked if wave hopping is legal. Short answer, yes! But how it will be scored is up to the judges. My advice would be to make wave transitions look purposeful, interesting and in control. Freesurfing, you could wave hop all day. I wouldn’t suggest that for the competition. Transitions look most impressive when they are lateral or forward. Plus, lots of wave hopping is going to make for a really long comp. Remember, you don’t want to belly. Sliding off the back of the wave and struggling to find another wave is going to be loss of wave and affect your length of ride points.  Plan your ride out keeping the judging criteria in mind: style and control (40%), tricks (40%), and length of ride (20%).

Now, wax up that board and get out there!
