The beautiful Daymer Bay will be the play ground for this event. Its' point break which reforms into a bowled beach break and natural amphitheatre makes for the perfect foil and event site.

Holding Dates
The event will run over a weekend when the wind and swell forecast is deemed sufficient for Wing + Prone riders to be able to perform. We have 3 provisional dates on standby, with a decision to go ahead or push back made before 12pm on the Thursday before:
Plan A: 21st - 22nd October

Provisional Event Plan
Exact heat timing, judging criteria and overall day plans will be driven by the conditions and rider numbers. A mandatory riders briefing will be held 1 hour before the first possible heat start which will outline necessary info. Riders will be notified 24 hours early if the riders briefing time changes.
All competition heats will aim to be completed on Saturday. Sunday will be considered a back up day, but also a media capturing day. We will also aim to run an expression session team event.
