Registration Rule of Competition

Surfers that register for a professional division are not allowed to compete in any amateur surfing. Surfers that register for a Pro Surfing division may surf in the Open SUP or SUP Ocean Race since we are only offering open divisions for SUP. Our policy is designed to allow for fair competition among surfers in the same skill range. This policy is not up for discussion. Thank you for understanding and please contact Savanna Pitard spitard@kidneyfla.org with any questions.
