The series is to be 3 rounds conditions permitting. Reserve days for each round are to be the following Sunday. The proposed locations for the event rounds are to be Plimmerton, Lyall Bay or Evans Bay depending on conditions. Check this page and deepfried.tv on the day for update.
The freewave is to include wave sailing, freestyle and freeracing. The freeracing aspect is to bring something new to the freewave this year (please bear with us as we see how this goes).
The goal is to have at least one wave and one freestyle focused round in the series conditions permitting. We will attempt to run a freerace at the start of each round. The freeraces will likely start from the beach or by bouy rounding aligned with a flag on the shore. Racing will be to an outer mark and back to either a beach finish or bouy rounding also aligned with a flag on the shore. Only wave or freestyle gear is allowed. Placing in the freeraces over all the three rounds will be combined to give an overall freerace ranking over the series. This will be considered in the final placing alongside the placings from the wave and freestyle sections.
