This season TITANS OF MAVERICKS will be introducing a new Wildcard format. As usual, 22 of the 24 TITANS will be announced before the Opening Ceremony leaving 2 spots open for potential Wildcard selections.
This year we will be announcing 8 Alternates and 8 Wildcards into the mix who will be in the running to fill the 2 Wildcard positions available for the event each season. The Alternates will have equal opportunity to potentially fill the 2 open slots in which the 8 Wildcards are vying for. Both the Alternates and Wildcards will be able to perform throughout the pre-season and during the season’s official window. The Committee 5 will be reviewing and noting performances of these athletes on both lists. Their free-surf performance at Maverick’s during the fall and winter season will be reviewed, calculated and then awarded by Committee 5. If no performances are noted during the pre-season prior to the event run, the Committee 5 will use historical observations and past season performances to use when voting the selectees. The Committee 5 will announce this decision live on titansofmavericks.com within days before the event.
The first round of 56 names will be released in September. That list then narrows down to 38 names by October. Each selected competitor will be publicly released in random order, and at the timely discretion of TITANS OF MAVERICKS. Each season the TITANS will be announced exclusively through our social media platforms before the Opening Ceremony in Half Moon Bay, CA. All 22 Titans will be announced along side 8 Alternates and 8 Wildcards prior to the Opening Ceremony event.
