Los Angles CA: Longboarding returns to the World Surf League (WSL) with the Cuervo Surf Ranch Classic.
The specialty event was held under stadium lights at the Surf Ranch and will air via a one-hour presentation on worldsurfleague.com on Sunday, October 18 at 5:00 p.m. ET on FS1 and on worldsurfleague.com
* Incidentally, for Australia that is 8am Monday in NSW & Victoria, 7am in Queensland, 5am in WA – as calculated by PLB, so definitely worth a double check.
This competition marks the first time some of the world’s most stylish surfers have competed since the Noosa Longboard Open in February and will provide a snapshot into how some of these athletes will approach the Longboard Tour once it resumes.
Fans will witness legends such as Kassia Meador, Joel Tudor, and Alex Knost compete alongside some of the best talents from California and Hawaii.
The Cuervo Surf Ranch Classic is an individual competition format with a men's and women's draw, each comprised of six athletes.
The competition starts with three-person heats, with the first and second-placed athletes from these opening rounds moving into the Semifinals.
The respective winners of these Semifinal heats will then surf against one another in the Final.
