2018 Xpression Wave Classic Results & Wrap Up

2018 xpression wave classic

This weekend’s Xpression Wave Classic saw a great turn-out for the surfing with 60 competitors – perfect 3/4 ft offshore conditions at the Berg.

 

Sunday was a different story, 19 racers in extremely difficult condition – 3 ft chop, 25-knot side shore, strong current and irregular period. While we had hoped to have a far longer race (especially for Mr Chipps, who flew down especially from Durban) it was impossible to make the race longer or do multiple ins and outs due to the wind and rip, without endangering paddlers. Two girls had to be rescued close to the rocks as it is.

 

The SUP Surfing Finals

Sadly, we could not display what our sup-surfing was really about due to the conditions, but the winners probably still came to the fore.

2018 SUPSA Events Calendar Announced

2018 SUPSA Events Calendar Announced

The 2018 SUPSA Events Calendar has been finalised and endorsed by Surfing South Africa and there are some exciting changes in the pipeline this year:

 

The Race Series now includes 12 races, of which 5 will be held as part of the SSA City Surf Series Events, which for the first time will mean that Race events will be held in Port Elizabeth and East London.

 

Race Events have been graded with one to three stars, and points earned will reflect the level of competition expected in each race. The 5 Three Star Races will thus carry the most weight in the rankings. A Competitor’s top 6 results will be used to determine final rankings points.

 

The Race Series kicks off this coming weekend with the Signature Century City Challenge, a Three Star Race event where competitors can earn  R16 500 in prize money

 

The Surf Series consists of 3 Three Star events, of which two scores will be used to determine rankings points.

Event Points Ranking – How It Works:

 

Race Series

Events which form part of the Race Series are either ranked One, Two, or Three Star events.

 

The intention is to make it financially accessible for athletes to be competitive in the rankings by creating three tiers of competitive races, thereby encouraging the top athletes to enter the Three Star Rated races where the competition should be strongest and the points earned the most valuable, but also making it possible for athletes to earn less points nearer to home if they are unable to travel to sufficient major events.

 

  • There are 5 Three Star events where points earned will be similar to last year i.e. First Place = 0.7 points, Second Place = 2 Points etc.
  • There are 4 Two Star events where points earned will be double those of the Three Star events i.e. First Place = 1.4 points, Second Place = 4 Points etc
  • There are 3 One Star events where points earned will be triple those of the Three Star events i.e. Frst Place = 2.1 points, Second Place = 6 Points etc

 

An athletes top 6 race points scored will count towards the rankings.

 

Surf Series

 

An athletes best 2 scores from the 3 * rating events will count towards the rankings.
