Red Bull Big Wave Africa

The window for the tenth annual Red Bull Big Wave Africa will be opening on the 24th July. This premier, paddle-in, big wave surfing event will attract a field of 24 surfers, 12 South Africans and 12 International surfers. The window for the event ends on the 31st August 2008.

The 24 man field will be divided into four 6-man heats (top 3 from each heat will advance to the semi-finals) and two semi-final heats of six competitors each. A draw will be conducted on the morning of the contest to decide which heat will surf first. The duration of these heats will be approximately 60 minutes and each surfers’ best two rides during that period will be tallied to determine his total for the heat. The three competitors with the highest tallies in each semi-final will advance to the final.
