This will allow 24 surfers to be involved with 6 surfers in  each team.

Four teams will battle it out in a finely balanced teams challenge.

Duration will be 1 hour and each surfer can catch two waves max with the single best score going towards the team tally.

The only rule is that each team MUST finish within the allotted time otherwise a 5 point deduction will be awarded.

This is bound to be great fun and one of the highlights of this years event.

Entry is by invitation only.
