Which World Surf League events count towards the surfers' rankings?There are two main systems of ranking in the WSL. These are the Championship Series rankings and the Qualifying Series rankings. The CT ranking system is used to determine the World Champions and the QS rankings are used to establish who will qualify for the next year's Championship Tour. The rankings from the Championship Tour include the results from the Top 34, the Top 17 and replacements. Only results from CT events count towards CT rankings. Best 9 of 11 counts towards the ranking of the men, and best 8 out of 10 counts towards the ranking of the women. In the QS rankings, the best 5 results from all WSL QS events are used to determine the rankings.
What is one of the most unusual World Surf League events?Surf fans from all over have been clamoring to get their shot at seeing Kelly Slater's Surf Ranch wave pool in person. The wave pool is in the agricultural region of Lemoore, CA without a natural beach in sight. The Surf Ranch hosted the Founder's Cup and is now poised to host the Surf Ranch Pro in 2020. These sorts of events may become more common in the world of surfing as there is even talk from the World Surf League of further major surf contests such as Summer Games in Tokyo being held in wave pools by 2020.
