Qualification for the 2015/2016 ASP BWWT season will be defined as follows:
    •    Top 10 finishers on the 2014/2015 ASP BWWT season
    •    Four ASP BWWT qualifiers from the Oregon Pro event
    •    To be joined by six ASP BWWT wildcards and four local wildcards per event, making up the 24-man field.
 
The Oregon Pro ASP BWWT Qualifier will include the surfers rated 6 through 20 on the ASP BWWT rankings following the completion of the Southern Hemisphere season, six ASP BWWT Video applicants and three ASP BWWT/Local wildcards. This event will determine the four surfers qualifying to the following season’s ASP BWWT roster.
 
The ASP BWWT Video Application will be an ongoing competition hosted on ASPWorldTour.com that, through a decision process inclusive of a judging panel as well as public voting, will determine the six ASP BWWT video wildcards seeded into the Oregon Pro ASP BWWT Qualifier event.
 
All ASP BWWT events will be webcast LIVE aspworldtour.com
