How does scoring in Olympic Surfing work? A five person judging panel scores the event using a scale from 0.1 to 10.0. Surfers compete in heats. Each surfer will be required to catch as many waves as possible, and only a surfer’s top two-highest scoring waves are combined for their final overall points total.
- Each surfer will be allowed to ride a maximum of 25 waves, and their two highest scoring waves — as scored by a five-judge panel — will count toward their heat total. The judges will score the surfers on degree of difficulty; the innovation, combinations and variety of their maneuvers; and speed, power and flow.
