The Format

Competitors in the Triple-S compete across three different disciplines in the search for the best overall riders. With $40,000 at stake, there’s plenty to play for! Sessions are chosen based on the best conditions and the locations/disciplines will be announced daily.


The unique topography of Cape Hatteras, NC offers butter flat water for the world’s best to enjoy the ultimate flat water freestyle conditions.


The REAL Slider Park is the world’s biggest and most advanced slider park featuring 2 kickers, an 82 foot “a-frame”, a 56ft “rooftop rail” and a 45ft “reverse rainbow”.


This year, we’re excited to introduce a new take on one of the original disciplines of the Triple-S. Riders will be judged on freestyle skills in the moving kicker park that is the Atlantic Ocean. Expect big air and big crashes! Read more about the Surf Format Change…
