Rule Change for the 2024 season
On December 5th the CWSA Board met and the following change was made:
Part 14.2.a was amended to update the minimum requirements for skim and surf boards and fins.
Here’s the full text of the amendment:
14.2. ABBREVIATIONS, TERMINOLOGY AND MISCELLANEOUS RULES
a. ‘Board Type(s)’: For each Skill Level there shall be two board types, Skim and Surf. Boards must conform to the following general parameters:
i. ‘Skim’: Board no greater than 1.25″ (3.2 cm) thick. No fin, a single fin, or multiple fins configurations are permitted. Fins shall not be more than 2″ (5 cm) in height/depth.
ii. ‘Surf’: Board shall be a minimum of 1.5″ (3.8 cm) thick and shall have a minimum of 2 fins of at least 3.5″ (8.9 cm) in height/depth and a base of 3.75” (9.5 cm). Additional fins are permitted and are not subject to the minimum height/depth and base specification.
1. ‘Thick’ is measured at the thickest part of the board, usually along the stringer or along the board center running nose to tail.
2. ‘Height/Depth’ is measured from the flush point of the board and does not include the section of fin that goes into the fin box, to the part of the fin that travels the deepest in the water.
3. ‘Base’ that portion of the fin that runs the length of the board surface and is exposed.
iv. For any Skill Level and Type of Board subject to WRS scoring and ranking, the CWSA Board reserves the right to permit, limit or prohibit the use of any wakesurf board design, wakesurf board modification, or the use of any feature or component affixed or attached to a wakesurf board including bindings, straps, magnets, fasteners, adhesives, waxes, traction pads, fins, rudder, foil, elevator, flap or any other feature or component which if used by an athlete would result in an unfair competitive advantage, or present an unreasonable risk of injury.
