    Comrad Jam Format Info

    • Double Elimination Tournament
    • 3 versus 3 in the water

    • Cumulative scoring as a team
    • Simple judging scale is 1-10, no fractions
    • Scores are weighted to reward progressive surfing
    • 15 & 20 minute heats with stoppage time for final set of waves
    • Etiquette violations deduct scores from violating team and award to opposing team
    • Team with most points at end of stoppage time wins
    • Approach to judging & Philosophy

    • The mission of the Comrad Jam is to radically shift the approach to competitive surfing. Whereas, the inherently individualized nature of the status-quo approach gives way to a more evolved format which rewards creative collaboration and teamwork.
    • The format creates a setting where winners are not decided by riding the 2 best waves. Rather, winners are determined by the team's overall accumulation of points.
    • Judges have experience surfing all kinds of surf craft, therefore, judging scale is curved to reward all styles of ripping, regardless of surf craft
    • Scores drop live by a 2-person judging diarchy
