Huge Update: The Season Starts At 10am, March 3rd….
Here we go…The 9th season of CTP Teams is here and this is the result of 8 seasons of competition, to deliver you the most exciting surfing competition in the industry!
We heard you loud and clear and we hope you enjoy the changes for this next season of CTP Teams:
HURRICANE SEASON START: March 3rd at 10am Eastern
HURRICANE SEASON END: May 16th
PLAYOFFS BEGIN: May 19th
The Details, Rules and Juicy Stuff….
We’re using the same scoring system as the previous season. This seemed to be the best way to score the daily competitions and made it as even as can be for all the teams. To win you match ups, your team simply completes more promos that your competition. That earns you a win.
The Big Change Part 1
We have a schedule set up for the season and YES…… Teams will be having days off. We heard you loud and clear!
The Big Change Part 2
As the scoring will be the same as last season, the biggest issue was that well…Some teams are just absolute powerhouses.
So we needed a way that EVERY team felt like they could compete, but still allow the power house teams to compete as much as they do!
Going off some great suggestions (Rob Paris, thank you for your ideas!) we are going to go with two divisions similar to the first season of CTP Teams;
The Premiere and The Competitive Divisions
The Premiere Division will have the teams that have over 11 members in them. These teams will compete against each other multiple times throughout the season but will NOT go against teams in the Competitive Division.
The Competitive Division will go against teams with 10 members or less and will not compete versus teams in the Premiere Division.
What Does This Mean For The Playoffs?
Two ‘playoffs and two finals for both divisions 🙂
The Big Change Part 3
The season will have teams playing a total of 50 games with a few breaks for Easter and Mother’s Day sprinkled throughout…But the big change will be the introduction of ‘The All Star Game’ in the mid point of the season (April 7-9). This is going to be an absolute blast and we’ll have more details about that as we get closer to it 🙂
But What About XP?
Glad you asked! Yes, XP will play a huge role in the season because as you read above…We’re basing each competition with points. Earn points by completing a promo AND trading in your XP….To earn one point you can trade 1 Million CTP XP and bam, your team has an extra point. This is why the Season Pass Multiplier is critical….Read on…
The Season Pass Individual Multiplier
This seasons’s special multiplier will be sponsored by Justin, Tim and Jon….It’s the CTP Season Pass Multiplier! Grab a Hurricane Season Pass through this link and we’ll give your team a 7x multiplier for all XP earned…

Already got a 7x multiplier?
Not a problem….That’s ADDED to your bonuses as well!
The Daily Competitions
We heard you loud and clear and we hope you guys love the changes. We listened to your recommendations and this is the formula we came up with from your suggestions from previous seasons! Again, last season we think we found a very good ‘comfortable medium’ for everyone!
– Get rid of the massive subscriber bonuses and bonuses for purchasing.
– Focus more on surfing, this helps the surfers and the promo partners
– Implement the two divisions again to level the playing field and let people actually compete for positions daily!
We hope you enjoy the changes and are as excited as we are to CRUSH IT with the Hurricane Season!
*Please note – There may be changes during the season. We do our best to provide a fun and exciting environment for competition. However we reserve the right to change things up as needs be. With that said, we do our best to never do massive changes in the middle of the season. Crossing our fingers, but we think this is the best set up we’ve ever done because of YOUR feedback and participation!
