Event Details

Competition Format

  • Riders will compete in a heat with up to 3 other riders.
  • Each rider will be given a handle with a handle skipped in between. For example, carriers 1, 3, 5, & 7 will be towing riders while 2, 4, 6, & 8 are empty.
  • Once the last rider for the heat leaves the start dock, a horn will blow, indicating the beginning of 5 minutes ride time. Riders can begin to throw tricks anywhere on the cable, on features or air tricks.
  • There will be several judges, each assigned a separate section of the cable to judge. Every time a rider throws a trick in their section, they will record it and score it, using the carrier number as the rider’s entry number for that heat. Judges will score based on the difficulty of the trick and how well it was executed.
  • At the end of 5 minutes, another horn will sound and the heat will be over. Judges will total their scores for each rider and submit them to a master judge, who will add all the points up for each rider.
  • If a rider falls, he/she may attempt to return to the start dock and launch on the same carrier that he/she was originally on.
  • The top scoring riders from each heat in a division will compete again after each preliminary heat has finished.
