As we have said before we are not trying to make this complicated or overly serious. Its just a way to add another fun element to local races and to help encourage participation. This is meant to be fun and we hope everyone enjoys it, and its FREE.

Since not everyone can or wants to do 9 mile or 17 mile solo races we figured we would break it down like this. We want to encourage everyone to do the longer courses if they can but we also want to reward the shorter courses as well, so everyone who races short or long will get a chance to earn points. This is not a separate point system though, its all one.  We just don’t want to see anyone jumping down to the short course just for the points though 🙂

Men’s and Ladies divisions. We are going to keep it simple Men’s is 14′ and under and Ladies is 12’6 and under unless there are enough Ladies who race 14′ boards this season, if so we will consider changing it.

Point system:

Long course:                              Short Course :

1st- 10 points                            1st- 5 points

2nd- 9 points                           2nd- 4 points

3rd- 8 points                           3rd- 3 points

4th- 7 points                           4th- 2 points

5th- 6 points                           All other places – 1 point for attendance.

6th -5 points

7th- 4 points

8th- 3 points

All other places – 2 points for attendance.
