SWISS SURFING RANKING

The national ranking system is based on points won at surf competitions across all divisions of Swiss Surfing. The ranking should enable athletes to participate in surf competitions all over the world and collect points for the ranking. Active surfers who gain competition experience will be rewarded regardless of where they live.  

The national ranking will be updated continuously and allows every competitive surfer to see at any time his individual Swiss ranking in comparison to all other surfers in his respective age group, respectively division.
