(a) Each judge shall allocate points from a range of 0 to 10 points broken into 0.1 point increments using the following five scoring categories:

0.0 – 2.0 points Poor
2.1 – 4.0 points Fair
4.1 – 6.0 points Average
6.1 – 8.0 points Good
8.1 – 10.0 points Excellent

(b) This scale should reflect the quality of the surf during the competition and judges should avoid restricting the use of the full range of points because the surf quality is poor.
