***Official 48 hr Notice***
Things continue to go our way at Pismo Beach and the forecast is still set at 10-20 kts out of the West and a swell of 5-7ft with increasing winds towards the end of the day. Registration is from 9-11am Friday morning, rider meeting at 11:30, first heat at noon (wind depending). We are planning on setting up closer to Grand Ave, where there is better parking and an entrance to the beach ($5 daily).
Given the larger swell on Friday, we hope to start with the surf division and do the freestyle on Saturday. If the forecast holds then we should be able to have the contest wrapped up by the end the day Saturday. We will discuss the judging criteria at the rider meeting Friday morning, but you will be judged based on your moves while surfing, with a best out of 100 pts format. The heats will be determined after registration has concluded, but you should expect four man heats of 10 min and either a single or double elimination depending on the number of individuals in your division.
Mucho importante, we need to leave the beach as clean as we found it, so we are asking for volunteers to help with collecting garbage and bringing them to the bin.
Judges have been announced. Afterparty brought to you by #BIP.Nationals
