As we’ve been promoting, Stab High, our first ever surf contest is set to go September 22nd.

Tickets are on sale; you can get them here.

Those tickets will get you access to Stab‘s air contest, starring 20 of the world’s best, non-WSL owned, jumpers; a pass to all of BSR Cable Park’s features—the world’s largest Lazy River and the Royal Flush (a water slide/launch ramp unlike any you’ve ever seen); the after party featuring a live performance by Poolside; the after-after party featuring a to be announced DJ set; drinks, food, libations and much much more.

We’d love to wave goodbye to summer, and say hello to you, in the heart of Texas in less than two weeks.

However, if you can’t make it out to Waco, we will be live-streaming the entire event.

Here’s what you need to know:

The Broadcast will go live at 12:30 pm local time. As most of us don’t live in Texas, here’s how that translates to your areas:

EST. Saturday, September 22, 1.30pm

PST. Saturday, September 22, 10.30am

AEST. Sunday, September 23, 3.30am

AWST. Sunday, September 23, 1.30am

The Round One Qualifier will run from 12:45 – 2:40 pm and will be available free of charge.

After that, you can pre-register for Pay Per View here: $13.99USD on event day or early bird price of $8.99USD. We suggest you purchase and watch with friends. Have a party with cold beverages and send us a photo. 

We will run a Stab High Party Gallery following the event as a tribute to our true believers.

Round One will feature two lefts and two rights per surfer.

The Round Two Qualifier will run from 2:45 – 4:40, and will once again feature two lefts and two rights per surfer (20 surfers in both Qualifiers).

From 4:53 – 5:20 there will be a bonus wave, each surfer choosing a left or right of their choice. Two scores are held on to. One right and one left.  

The top six surfers will be in the final.

Prior to the final, we have a special event to be announced soon. This will run from 5:25 – 5:50.

At 6 pm (local time) the final round will kick off.

EST. Saturday, September 22, 7pm

PST. Saturday, September 22, 5pm

AEST. Sunday, September 23, 10am

AWST. Sunday, September 23, 8am

In the final, four lefts and four rights will be ridden by each surfer plus a bonus wave of choice. The best two scores (left + right) will be taken into account to determine the winner.

After the final, we will be rewarding six spectators a lucky door prize. They will be given a session in the pool with Shane Dorian and Bobby Martinez.

Also, throughout the day, kids who want to ride the whitewash and the reform will be allowed to do so. We’re working with the lifeguards on what those final numbers look like, but we’ll be sure to get the groms riding a few waves at very least.  

We’d prefer you join us in Waco, but if you can’t that’s okay—you can watch for the price of a semi-fancy sandwich or a six-pack (read: three beers in Australia).
