HEATS SCHEDULE

Saturday and Sunday's schedules are posted here.* This year our goal was for all participants to surf twice. Plan on being there both days unless your category has preliminary heats or semi final heats on Saturday afternoon. Then you may or may not surf on Sunday depending on the progression. But, who are we kidding, you need to be there on Sunday for the surfboards raffle ;)

*Subject to change.
