More about the format:
The 18 competitors will each run 3 non-looser rounds and will be judged, as the Pros, by ASP judges. After these 3 rounds, the 3 best waves of each surfer will be recorded to establish an overall ranking of the 18 competitors.
The top 3 of the overall ranking will qualify for the big final, only scored on the best wave of each finalist.
