About the Surfing South Africa Pro Surf Tour

The Surfing South Africa (SSA) Pro Surf Tour (PST) became a feature of the South African surfing landscape in 2002.

The objective of the PST then was to introduce a domestic professional surfing tour for male and female surfers unable to compete on the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Qualifying Series.

The ASP WQS events begin as 1 stars and go up to 6 stars. Affiliation to the ASP as well as entry fees is in US dollars and prize money is paid in dollars.

The PST events start as 1A and go up to 6A. Affiliation to the PST as well as entry fees are in South African Rands and the prize money is paid in Rands.

In fact the PST is a replica of the ASP WQS in that surfers are allocated the same ratings points per grading as the ASP allocates to its WQS contests.
