Format & Heat Draw

All Stars - - will surf Wednesday 19th July  -  50% progression

MR Shield -  will surf Thursday 20th July  - Tag team 2nd chance format.   Rules:  Only one of the two surfers in the School team will be out in the water at any one time. Each heat will go for 20 minutes where both surfers will need to surf within this time frame seperately (e.g. like a tag team format). Each surfer is able to catch up to 5  waves but ONLY 1 WILL BE COUNTED. Once the surfer has completed their waves or is happy with one wave they are to return to shore and tag the second surfer and repeat. The highest scoring wave for each surfer will be added together to get the total (2 waves total - 1 wave per surfer).
