Frequently asked questions about the South Bay Surf Series

When is the entry deadline?

The entry deadline is the Wednesday prior to the event at 11:45pm.
After the deadline, we will only accept beach entries on a first-come-first-serve basis. No exceptions.

No. Anyone can compete in the South Bay Surf Series. However, members get a discount on their entry fees.

We post the contest schedule on Friday evening prior to the contest.

The assisted Micro Grom division allows a parent/coach to accompany the competitor into the lineup to push and assist with catching waves during the heat.
This division was created because surfers in this age group are at various levels of development including the ability to catch waves on their own within the short timeframe of a heat.
