Mid-Season Cut

With this being the last stage before the mid-season cut, this will be the last event for some athletes in surfing's main category of the year.

In the female category, the ten best athletes remain among the surfing elite. At the moment, the best six are already saved by the scores they obtained.

Brazilian Tati Weston-Webb currently occupies seventh place with 18.185 points. Meanwhile, Luana Silva, who occupies the tenth and last place saved by the cut, is already eliminated from the stage and has 14,710 points. This score is the same as Gabriela Bryan, in 11th place, who is behind the Brazilian due to a tiebreaker. Bryan is still in the competition and will face Australian Isabele Nichols, in the round of 16, who is currently 12th in the world rankings.

In the men's category, 22 of the 34 athletes will be saved in the cut, while the rest will be relegated to the qualifying series.


Currently, Yago Dora, Italo Ferreira and Gabriel Medina are the only Brazilians above the cutoff limit. However, none of them are yet mathematically guaranteed.

Samuel Pupo and Caio Ibelli, who occupy 25th and 26th place, are those with the greatest chance of entering the classification zone. Miguel Pupo in 28th and Deivid Silva in 33rd have fewer chances, but are still in contention.
