Safety is our number one priority. The California State Parks are providing their veteran crew of lifeguards and support personnel to make sure all racers are safe. There will be extra State Parks staff on the beach and in the water throughout the weekend.
All Youth racers will be required to wear leashes. Leashes are strongly recommended and encouraged for all racers. Leashes may be required for some races, depending on conditions.
Helmets may be required for some divisions, depending on surf conditions. Bring one just in case.
For all Technical race heats, there will be no more than 16 competitors.
Hydration is highly recommended for the Distance races.
Youth, 10 & Under Division racers are required to use and 11’ board.
All final safety decisions will be based on conditions during race weekend, as determined CA State Parks.
