The duration of surfing competitions depends on some factors such as the type of competition, number of competing surfers, the number of heats, the weather, the swell, the surf conditions and what would be the best day for competition. According to the schedule of competitions provided by the World Surf League (WSL), most surfing competitions have a window of 11 days per competition.
