NOTES:

1. The number of women’s and men’s divisions in this contest is determined by the number of people who sign up for each one.

2. The number of finalists in each division is also determined by the number of people who sign up for each one.

3. For contestants that are in divisions in which there isn’t enough contestants to fill up a heat, we sometimes have those contestants surf with contestants in the next lowest age division. When this happens, we rank each surfer’s scores based on their age division rather than their scores relative to the other surfers in their heat. For example, if a surfer is the only one competing in their age division but is surfing in a heat with surfers in a lower age division, then they will automatically get first place in their age division if they participate in the contest regardless of how they score relative to the other (younger) surfers in their heat.

Mahalo to everyone who participated in this year’s contest as a volunteer, judge, contestant, spectator, sponsor or supporter! Over $2,000 was raised to support Pacifica’s Environmental Family’s (PEF) operating expenses. www.pacificasenvironmentalfamily.org. On behalf of the board and the community wide projects that PEF proudly supports as a non-profit fiscal sponsor, we appreciate everyone’s participation. We hope to see you all next year at the 15th Annual Kahuna Kupuna Benefit Surf Contest. Date-to-be-announced.
