All surfers' scores are the total of their two highest-scored waves. This does not change regardless of which WSL Tour or Championship they are competing in. By scoring surfers on only two waves (formerly it was three), the level of performance is pushed as surfers attempt for bigger scores. In all Non-Priority QS Heats and CT Heats, the maximum number of waves scored is 15. In one-on-one heats, there is no wave maximum.
