WSL NAZARE’ TOW CHALLENGE IS ON FOR TUESDAY…

10 Hours ahead of Hawaii (so about 10pm tonight)

This season, the WSL presents the Nazare Tow Surfing Challenge Presented by Jogos Santa Casa.

This is the first, team-oriented big wave tow-in event in the league’s history.

This event is scheduled to take place on February 11th.

We’re talking Guinness World Records potentially being broken, severe wipeouts and daring feats of water rescue.

And, unique to this event, the final results will be determined by an athlete-led judging panel. Four honors will be awarded at the end of the day: -Men’s Wave of the Day -Women’s Wave of the Day -Team Champions -The Jogos Santa Casa Commitment Award Later that evening at an athlete reception, the day’s top performances will be shown on the big screen, and each competitor will privately vote for their favorites.

The final voting tally will determine the winners, as judged by their elite, heavy-water peers.

The contest window runs through the end of March 31st, 2020.

So get ready to go big.

This is the first, team-oriented big wave tow-in event in the league’s history.

Here’s how it works:

19 big wave surfers from around the globe – 17 men and 2 women – will be paired up in tow teams.

They will compete in a four-hour expression session with no elimination, and an option to run longer if conditions are right.

The session will feature a rotating heat format and priority system that keeps five teams in the water at all times.
Each tow team will get two, one-hour heats to whip each other into waves of mind-boggling heights.
