The Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Tour is a professional surfing circuit that sanctions events around the world. The ASP is currently the recognized governing body for professional surfing. The sport’s top professionals are usually involved in the ASP Tour. The World Tour is one of several professional surfing circuits in the ASP.
The ASP Tour features both the men’s and women’s divisions. The men’s division consists of the top 45 competitive professional surfers in the world, while the women’s division features the top 17 female surfers. Throughout the surf season, these pros compete in events that are part of the ASP Tour to determine the world surfing champion. Cash prizes are also awarded to the winners of each event.
The ASP Tour is governed by a set of rules. For example, the tour is limited to a certain number of events each year. Overall, these include at least 10 events for men and seven for women. Throughout the events, competitors are awarded points based on several factors related to their performance. These points are accumulated throughout the season and the surfer with the most points at the end of the tour is named world champion.
The ASP Tour involves more than surfing competitions. Sometimes tour professionals are required to attend media events. There are also rules governing how tour events unfold and what contestants may or may not do, as well as judging rules. The ASP Tour is also responsible for the professional world rankings in surfing through its events.
ASP Tour events are held in locations around the world. The association is divided into seven regions and there can be no more than two events per region each season. This allows for equal representation across all regions and also allows surfers to compete in different venues when surf conditions are at their best.
The ASP has a ranking system that determines who makes up the best surfers in the world. In the men’s division, the top 27 ranked surfers from the previous year are automatically offered a spot on the tour. Additionally, 15 surfers had the highest points in the events and three received wildcards. In the women’s division, the top 10 from the previous year are included, and then another six chosen from the best scores from the events. A wildcard is also chosen.
