The international season has ended on a low-key note for leading New Zealand surfers Ricardo Christie and Billy Stairmand in Hawaii.

Christie suffered a fourth-round exit from the Vans World Cup at Sunset Beach in Oahu while Stairmand was eliminated in round two.

The pair will finish the World Surf League's qualifying series ranked outside the top 50.

They needed a top-10 finish to qualify for the elite Championship Tour, where Christie competed in 2015.
