The TGSA Competition Directors and Surfer Reps are watching this weekends forecast closely in anticipation of the 2017 Texas State Surfing Championships.  If the contest does run this weekend, we will have a delayed start on Saturday morning due to the Beach to Bay run.   Please watch for the contest call where will will post the starting times.

The chase for the year end Team Championship is tight with teams from Board House Surf and Skate, Dockside and Wind & Wave all battling it out to see who comes out on top.  It will be close and exciting in the last contest.  In addition, several individual division points champion races are tight and the competition will be strong.

As a reminder, the TGSA Board approved new points for the individual divisions at this year’s Texas State Surfing Championships.  These new points were approved at the June 2016 Board meeting for the 2016/2017 season and we look forward to the increased competitive spirit.  Individual points will be double for the TSSC and one contest (the lowest scoring or missed contest) will be dropped for the calculations in determining the year end champion in each division.  It’s going to be exciting and we look forward to seeing everyone at the beach.

Entries will still be accepted until Wednesday, May 17th, 8:00 PM in order to guarantee an slot in the contest.  Only open slots will be filled at the beach.  Please contact John Blaha @ jdblaha.tgsa@gmail.com if you wish to surf.
