Thigh High Surf Series presented by Nautiques of Orlando & Danny Harf
May 12 @ 10:00 am - September 22 @ 3:00 pm
The Thigh High Surf Series is a three-stop grassroots wakesurf contest series that is committed to bringing together, growing and sustaining the Central Florida wakesurf community. Our goal is to identify local novice + established surfers in the region and give them a platform to show off their skills and build confidence in competitions.
Series stops are Sunday, May 12; Sunday June 9 and Sunday, Sept. 22 in Orlando, Florida from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The first two stops will be at the Orlando Watersports Complex and the third stop location is TBD.
To purchase tickets to compete or spectate at the event, select the date on the right. Spectator tickets are not required, but encouraged. Show us your ticket at the athlete check-in/merch table for a free Thigh High Surf koozie.
Beginners and unknown prodigies, we’re looking at YOU! We want the Thigh High Surf Series to be your first wakesurf contest experience. With 7 divisions, all grassroots riders can enter a division tailored to their riding abilities. Spots are limited – don’t let this event closeout on you.
There are single stop ($40) tickets available. This event is sanctioned by the WWA, therefore all competitors will also need to purchase a one-day ($30) or all-season ($70) WWA membership pass (if you don’t already have one). Registered surfers will receive a free meal as well as an event tee and swag from sponsors.
Once you complete the eventbrite transaction, head to the Thigh High Surf Series Athlete Page to purchase your WWA membership pass and complete the necessary WWA forms, along with a contest bio sheet where you will note the division you would like to compete in.
With the exception of the outlaw divisions, all categories will be mixed with both male & female surfers competing together:
GIRLS + BOYS NOVICE (10 AND UNDER): Surf with or without the rope, choice of surf side
MALE + FEMALE NOVICE (ALL AGES): Surf with or without the rope, choice of surf side
MALE + FEMALE INTERMEDIATE (ALL AGES): Can drop the rope, stay with the wave and make some turns
MALE + FEMALE ADVANCED (ALL AGES): Turns, airs and no more than two 360 variations
MALE + FEMALE MASTERS (AGES 35+): Turns, airs, 360s and shuv-it maneuvers
WOMEN’S OUTLAW (ALL AGES): Confidently and consistently do turns, airs, multiple 360s, shuv-its and three-shuvs as well as big spin variations
MEN’S OUTLAW (ALL AGES): Confidently and consistently do turns, airs, multiple 360s, shuv-its and three-shuvs as well as big spin variations
Full information on the contest format/rules can be found on the Thigh High Surf Series Athlete Page.
The contest format calls for the wave to open facing the shoreline, so you can catch the action, all-day with an ultimate view of the industry’s leading wave. Grab a blanket, some lawn chairs and maybe a tent (we’ll also have shaded areas for you to hang out), and sit back, relax and enjoy lake time with other amazing people in the wakesurf community.
A food truck will be available onsite at the event for attendees and athletes. Plus, all attendees will have access to the Nautiques of Orlando VIP lounge where you can enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages.
Purchase the FREE spectator ticket if you want to just come out and watch the action and support the wakesurf community. Show your spectator ticket at the athlete check-in/merch table to get hooked up with a Thigh High Surf koozie.
