OVERALL SERIES RESULTS
STOP 2 RECAP
Stop 2 of the Thigh High Surf Series brought the event back to the Orlando Watersports Complex with close to 40 athletes shredding epic waves all day long. Outside of surfing, spectators and athletes alike enjoyed paddle boarding, tie dying and complimentary lunch.
STOP 1 RECAP
Presented by Nautiques of Orlando and four-time X-Games gold medalist and wakeboard legend Danny Harf, the Thigh High Surf Series launched Sunday, May 12, at the Orlando Watersports Complex with more than 30 athletes surfing behind the latest Nautique G23 with Harf at the helm. Click HERE for a full recap of the event.
Each surfer will get a total of four passes or six minutes for their competition run, with the exception of the Novice division which will have seven minutes to complete their four-pass run. Each surfer will have two passes on the driver’s side and two passes on the passenger side of the boat, with the wave open to the shoreline on each pass. The Novice division is encouraged to attempt at least one backside run, though it is not required. The best two runs of four will count toward the final score. Scoring begins when the surfer passes the start/stop buoy. There is no fall limit and falls will not affect the score, but will take away from time on the wave.
At the end of each stop, the top three podium finishers in all divisions will be awarded. And, at the final stop, the overall points leader in each division will receive a special grand prize.
WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE OUTLAW DIVISIONS, ALL CATEGORIES WILL BE MIXED WITH BOTH MALE & FEMALE SURFERS COMPETING TOGETHER.
GIRLS + BOYS NOVICE (10 AND UNDER): Surf with or without the rope, choice of surf side
MALE + FEMALE NOVICE (ALL AGES): Surf with or without the rope, choice of surf side
MALE + FEMALE INTERMEDIATE (ALL AGES): Can drop the rope, stay with the wave and make some turns
MALE + FEMALE ADVANCED (ALL AGES): Turns, airs and no more than two 360 variations
