The USPL offers 3 titles for divisional teams to win: Conference titles, East and West; and a National title. In order to win a conference title, a team must have played in 3 events. To win the national series title, a team can only have played in 1 event. That teams top 4 scores will count towards the national title.

USPL Surf City Open

USPL is off to a start with their first event in Huntington Beach, California. Registration for this event begins on February 16, 2009 and will be capped at 130 teams. Seeing as their was probably 130 D2 and D3 teams at the NPPL huntington Beach event last year, I suggest that your team register and pay as soon as possible. At this time,  no site, phone number, or address has been set up for registration.
