Who Makes The Team
We Are an “Open Club” and We Welcome All Members Who Meet the Following Criteria:
Age: There are no age limitations on club membership. Age is as of day of event.
Competition Divisions are as follow:
• Boys 14 and Under • Men: 15-19 • Men: 20-29 • Men: 30-39 • Men: 40-49 • Men: 50+ • Women: All Ages
• Born and raised in the Club city, or;

• If U18 member is subject to parents' residency
• Direct inland residents are eligible if they have surfed local Club breaks on a regular basis for 2+ years. If inland from multiple breaks and clubs, surfer will have the choice to select the club they surf for.
Each surfer gets one chance to "jump" clubs. Once “jumped” and surfing for another club, that is final.
Note: Any special circumstances must be addressed to FLBR Board for approval. The Commissioner’s decision is final.
Each division consists of a tag team of 4 surfers. Flagler's top two scorers from the most recent competition automatically are given the first two spots on the team for the next contest. The other 2 spots are filled by having a surf off (if more than 2 surfers want to fill those spots). 2 alternates will also be named to the team. You must be a member of the club to join the team. The Club pays for Florida Board Riders contest entry fees.
