We offer the best surfing odds on the Internet and provide features like bonuses for every major tournament to bolster the experience. Read below to find out how we can help you have the best time possible with surfing betting this year. We’ll include tips from surfing experts and a guide to our mobile application.
Surfing Betting Odds
Before jumping into the sportsbook and placing a bet, you’ll want to know the types of betting odds offered for surfing at 10CRIC. The three most popular odds types to understand our pregame, outright, and live to bet.
Pregame, surfing betting odds refer to bets that are placed before an event has even begun. These are your standard bets, with outcomes ranging from individual heat winners to the highest total score. We recommend pregame betting for those who have a little bit of higher knowledge of surfing than the amateur; you’ll need to know what you’re looking for before the event begins.
Outright surfing betting odds refer to those that select the overall winner of an entire tournament, event or league. These odds can shift throughout, and you’re allowed to place them even after the tournament has begun.
We recommend outright bets for just about everyone; they’re especially fun for the novice gambler, as placing a small outright bet on your favourite surfer can help you get the hang of the betting world.
Live surfing 2021 betting odds are fast-paced and exciting, making them perfect for sports like surfing. The idea is that you can place a wager while an event is happening. This way, you can see who is doing well and who isn’t before putting your hard-earned money down.
We recommend live betting for those that can sit and watch the entirety of an event because of how volatile these odds can be. Also, timing is critical to huge payouts, so luck plays a role as well. Live odds can be the ideal pick for the novice and the veteran alike.
10CRIC Surfing Betting App
Although gambling is more engaging when you’re able to sit and enjoy the entirety of a surfing event, we at 10CRIC understand how unrealistic this may be. People are on the go more than ever, and as such, the 10CRIC betting app helps make your leisure time even more efficient.
Also, as surfing is an internationally recognised sport, some competitions may happen during the day when you can’t take the time to research all betting options. Our application is a perfect surfing app for betting purposes. You’ll be able to place deposits, withdraw winnings and access all parts of your account directly from the application itself.

Surfing at the competitive and professional level is scored on a scale of 0-10. Each surfer’s ‘run’ or session out on the waves is judged by a panel. Some of the factors that determine a surfer’s overall score include style, speed, flow, innovation and variety. The larger the competition you’re watching is, the more grouped up surfers will become.
Typically, an event will run a few male and female heats so that everyone has an opportunity to catch the best waves. Some of the most popular ways to bet on surfing include outright tournament bets. As surfing competitions are long-winded, it's much more difficult to bet on the outcomes of individual runs.
Many prefer to place outrights, which require you to choose the overall winner. Another popular betting market for surfing is head to head, which pit the scores of two individual surfers against one another. You’ll also find various random or ‘novelty’ markets depending on the tournament itself.
Surfing Events 2021
Surfing is done at a competitive level all over the world. That being said, the three biggest surfing events are the Summer Olympics, the Triple Crown of Surfing, and the World Surf League. Each of these events is full of some of the best surfing action from the sport’s top competitors.
The Summer Olympics: Surfing will be completely new at the Tokyo Summer Olympics. It was initially slated for a 2020 debut, but the coronavirus pandemic prevented it from happening. Luckily, there aren’t any signs of removing it from the 2021 version of the Olympic Games.
The Triple Crown of Surfing: The Triple Crown of Surfing is an annual event held in Hawaii that began in 1983. Each of the three main events, during this festival of surfing, take place on a different beach. The competition spans from November to December every year.
World Surf League: The World Surf League is the major organisation responsible for ranking the top male and female athletes every year. It contains at least ten events for both men’s and women’s divisions that take place across the globe, from France to Bali. These tournaments dot the calendar, starting in mid-spring and running through to the end of the year.
