SISA Circuit

The SISA surf circuit is made up of four main contests in four different locations and a number of other specialty events.  Each of the main contests have a range of divisions and at at the end of the circuit, a competitor is crowned champion of each division.

The divisions are :

  • Open Men and Women

  • Senior Men and Women ( > 30 )

  • Grandmasters ( > 45 )

  • Longboard Men and Women

  • Junior Men and Women ( < 20 )

  • Under 18 Boys and Girls

  • Under 16 Boys and Girls

  • Groms

Outside of the four main contests there is also the very well supported Grom Series, Longboard comps, fun comps, non sanctioned regional comps and also some extra comps for the juniors.  Some of these have divisions that are SISA sanctioned.  These can therefore be used to gather valuable competition points in the race to be crowned the division champ at the end of the season.

Club points, from this year, can only be gained from the main comps, The Cape Classic in Westport, The South Island Champs in Dunedin, The Canterbury Men's and Women's champs and finishing with the Cold Water Classic in Kaikoura.
