Welcome to the WSA 2012/2013 Season
PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING
Welcome to the 51st season of WSA! We are stoked to have you and your family compete in the WSA Championship Tour. We are pleased to announce that we are again holding membership prices to last years’ levels, with a small pass through of the registration system processing fees! Individual events have gone up $5 per event. If you are a returning member, you may login in with your old account name (email address) and password. If you are new to WSA, you will need to set up a NEW USER account. From that account you can register for events, purchase membership, check on the events you have entered, add participants and alert your friends that you have entered the event via Facebook. Here are a few tips and explanations before you get started.
Events will be two days in duration. We will do our best to keep with this schedule and if it changes you will have the opportunity to receive a refund for events not yet surfed. Here is division schedule for 2012/2013

This will help insure that our panel of predominantly ASP judges will be able to calibrate their judging specifically to longboarding without have to bounce back and forth between longboard and shortboard divisions.

All Micro Grom Divisions
When you go to register as a new user you will be sent to the Primary Account Holder information page. This should be the information of the person who is paying for the event, whether they are the actual competitor, or a parent or guardian registering their children. Your username will be your email account (use an account you check often). You will then be asked to set your password. Bookmark the registration page and don’t forget your username and password.
After the Primary Account Holder information is completed you may then add one or more Participants. WSA/Surfing America membership is required for each participant, and all 2011/2012 season memberships are expired. Membership includes a competitors T-shirt, subscription to TransWorld Surf (one per household), WSA full membership and Surfing America full membership and a competitors long sleeve T-shirt. The competitors T-shirt will be available at the first 3 events. Make sure to get yours early so you are guaranteed to get the size you want. The long sleeve t-shirt will be available at the December Oceanside contest only. Subscriptions to TransWorld Surf will start within 3 months of registration. The first participant will be charged $110 for WSA/Surfing America membership and subsequent participants in the same household will be charged $90 for each additional participant. Once participants are added you will be required to scroll through and read the liability waiver and acknowledge that you agree to it and type your name in the box accepting the terms. There is a $4.25 minimum and $9.95 maximum per cart non-refundable service fee.
Once accepted the system will determine what divisions your participant’s sex and age (as of 1/1/2013) will be eligible to surf. It will offer to bulk enter which means you are purchasing entry in that division for all 9 regular season events. This option saves 10% and the service fees you would pay if you ordered each event separately. Once you bulk enter a participant in a division, do not go through and enter them individually in each event. Bulk entry does not include membership or entry in West Coast Championships or Surfing America USA Championships. Make sure you read the WSA rulebook to determine which divisions will qualify you into the USA Championships and which divisions qualify you into Surfing America Prime. If you are a Surfing America Prime surfer it is recommended you also surf your age division to re-qualify for Prime in 2013/2014 if you are not sure you will be in the top 50% that retains their Prime Slots for the following year.
Once you have added all of your participant’s memberships, divisions and events into the cart you can proceed to check-out. We are offering a 3 month payment plan for purchases over $350. You may select the payment plan option and your account will be charged 1/3 immediately then 1/3 in 30 days and 1/3 in 60 days to help spread the cost out over a few months. By choosing the payment plan you are authorizing us to charge your credit/debit card at the intervals above for the amounts outlined.
