Competition ranking and attendance at development squad days are a requirement for a team place.
Development Squad days are required attendance.
Full Access to a surf kayak is also a requirement, for training and competing.
Anyone competing should attempt to get to as many of these as possible,
1: To improve their surfing
2: To gain an understanding of the rules
3: To build a good team spirit.

The Worlds are just over 5 months away. It is going to take a lot of organising to get a team and boats over to Spain. So can people let us us know ASAP if you are going. So we can start fundraising for the trip. We will all need to work together training and organising for the worlds.
