Featuring a format unlike any other Championship Tour stop, the Jeep Surf Ranch Pro presented by Adobe kicks off on June 18 and utilizes a leaderboard ranking system that rewards the combined top wave scores on the left and right. No heat strategy, no priority, just pure performance. Here's how it works:

Qualifying Leaderboard - Runs 1 and 2

  • 36 men and 18 women.
  • Normal event seeding determines surfer order.
  • Brackets are six-person heats combining two runs of two waves each.
  • The best-scoring left and right create each surfer's total score.
  • The top two surfers from each heat win a bonus run of an extra two waves.
  • The next highest-ranked 12 men and 6 women on the leaderboard also win a bonus run of an extra two waves.
  • This is the only time top scores from previous runs may be carried over if a surfer can't better their previous score.

Qualifying Leaderboard - Bonus Run

  • 24 men and 12 women.
  • The leaderboard determines surfer order.
  • The top eight men and four women on the leaderboard after the bonus run advance to the Semifinal.

Semifinals

  • Eight men and four women.
  • Each surfer rides four waves over two runs.
  • Each run consists of a right and a left.
  • The best scoring left and right create each surfer's total score.
  • The top two men and women on the leaderboard advance to the Final.

Final

  • Two men and two women.
  • Each surfer rides four waves over two runs (a left and right back to back).
  • Each run consists of a right and a left.
  • The best scoring left and right create the surfer's total score.
  • The highest scoring man and woman win the event.
