Ties will be broken after each event by comparing each owners top scoring surfer for the event just completed. If the tie is still not broken, this process continues with the second top scoring surfer and so forth down the team until the tie is broken. If the two tied winners have the exact same scores for all eight of their surfers then their total event to date points will be used to break the tie. If they are still tied after this, then the participant with the highest current balance in his her cash account will win. After that, any prizes will be split. Your teams overall standing will be determined by adding up your team scores for each event. The overall winner of the Fantasy Surfer challenge is the team that accumulates the highest fantasy points for the best nine events. Ties for overall positions will be resolved the same way that ties are broken after each event, using the final event results. In the rare event that two or more teams tie for the Grand Prize, the winner will be team with the earliest registration date. The Fantasy Surfer scoring is set up so the surfers all finish the event with an individual placing. For example, if you have one of the 16 surfers on your team who lost in the third round but had the highest point total for that round he gets the points for 9th place (104 points). The surfer who has the next highest total score from round two gets 10th place all the way down to 18th place.
