Submit your Write-In requests for Surf Season 2023 before noon on Friday, June 24, 2022.
If your matrix is received later than 3 days before Surf Day, it’s placed at the end of the Write-In queue.
To give owners a better chance of getting a good write-in priority number every three years, all 275 Surf Season intervals are grouped into three groups of about 92 intervals, designated Red, White, and Blue. Every interval is assigned to one of those color groups and remains with that group year after year.
On a three-year cycle, each color group in turn has top priority as follows: in one year, intervals in Red have priority 1–92, White 93-184, Blue 185-275; the next year, White have priority 1-92; and in the third year, Blue have priority 1-91. Then the cycle repeats.
Within each color group, the priority for processing reservation requests is determined by a random list created (computer-generated) by Tricom and approved at the January Board meeting. The list is posted to this page before the end of January each year (and removed from the site after Surf Day).
Example: Suppose you own an interval in the Red group.Your position in the Write-In queue on Surf Day 2023 (June 28, 2022) will be between 1 and 92 because Red has top priority this year; your exact position will be determined by the randomized list of owner numbers in January 2022.
In the following year, your interval position will be between 93 and 184, and for Surf Day 2025 (June 25, 2024) it will be above 184.
In May/June, you will receive a Surf Day packet containing a Reservation Request Matrix of weeks and units you can request in the next Surf Season. You will also be able to download the matrix from this page or to fill it out online and submit it directly (recommended).
Fill out the matrix, one copy for each interval you own, and submit it (print-and-mail, email, or online) no later than 3 days prior to Surf Day.
The Reservations Request Matrix for Surf Day 2023 (June 28, 2022) will be available here before June 2022.
Submit a separate Matrix for each Surf Season interval you own. You may link your request to one other interval you own by following the directions on the form.
Here’s how linking works: When your first request is processed, the request that is linked to it is held for one cycle (phone, walk-in) and then is processed next, regardless of its position in the Write-In queue.
You can link two requests for intervals you own. You cannot link to an interval of a famiy member, friend, or any other owner, and you can’t link more than two intervals.
Linking requests is intended primarily to allow owners to reserve two units in the same week or one unit in two consecutive weeks. However, you can link any two requests, so owners with a high-priority interval will often link that request to an interval with a lower priority.
