ASP Tour Updates

As told by the man himself, Al Hunt   

In releated article below, ASP CEO Brodie Carr adds further clarification  

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 17 December, 2009 : - - The Top 45 will start the 2010 year in the normal 48 formatted event. After event 5 'Trestles', this will change to a 36 formatted event. The lowest rated 12 guys will drop back to the WQS tour. The remaining guys will surf all remaining events for 2010 WT season.

In 2011 though only the Top 32 plus wilds will compete on the WT “Dream”. These will be the Top 22 from 2010 and Top 10 from the WQS and there will be changeover dates throughout the year where some drop out and others move up.

Number of changeovers and dates to be decided once the schedule is known. They may be the same or different people based on the ONE RANKING points. Surfers on the WT and WQS count their best 8 results with WT events worth a maximum of 10,000 and Prime WQS a max of 6,500.

Other grades as shown below:

So you will see that a 3rd in a Dream Tour event is worth the same as a 1st in a Prime, a 5th a bit more than a 2nd, a 9th a bit more than a 3rd and then 17th and 33rd worth hardly anything as they are basically last place.

A Dream Tour surfer can count both Dream Tour points and WQS if he has better scores than his Dream Tour top 8. Best 8 results for both Dream and WQS tours. Should a WQS surfer advance into the Dream Tour he counts whatever points he gets, if better than what he already has from the dream Tour towards his one ranking.

The one ranking will be used to decide all future Dream Tour competitors from 2011 onwards. One ranking points carry over for 12 months continually and replace same event points if applicable as the event happens. So for example 2010 Bells results are used until Bells runs the following year and then the 2010 points are replaced if they are still counting in a surfers best 8.
