1 Available Quota spot for Shortboard Mens.
The Mens shortboard Team will consist of the following:
2. Highest placing surfer from the ISA Worlds ’17, Noah Cohen
3. Winner of the NextGen Trials ’17, Max Selff
4. Winner of the Final Selection Trials (TBD)
1 NextGen (U18) spot was decided in Japan during the ISA’s which will leave 4 NextGen surfers still eligible to compete for the final spot against 12 Canadian invitees.
The Final Selection Trials format will be 3 separate back-to-back contests, points accumulate from each. After the 3 events, the top 4 will compete in the Grand Final. In the unlikely event of a tie going into the Grand Final, points will count back from each of the 3 events (3rd, 2nd, then 1st event), then if required, heat scores in the same order, until the tie is broken. Winner of the Grand Final earns the Final Spot, Runner-up is 1st Alternate.
Every heat will simulate the ISA, with 4 men, 20 min heats.
Surf Canada selections for the 2017 PASA PanAm may not be appealed, all selections are final.
