The Run

A running order for all riders will be first determined. The rider will begin his pass once he leaves the Starting Dock. The rider will complete one full round and will finish off his run at the kickers closest to the starting dock. Tricks can be performed anywhere in the course with no limit to the number of tricks executed.

The Format

Each competitor will only have 1 pass. Wakeboarders will be allowed 1 fall and wakeskaters are allowed 2 falls. Subsequent falls will end the rider’s run. If a rider falls anywhere along the course, another rope & handle will be sent over, and riders are expected to perform a water start from their point of fall to continue with his pass. A fall during a water start will be counted as a fall. Also, a rider’s pass will end if he falls after he has passed the final corner (the corner nearest to the start dock) even if he still has fall allowances. Riders will be judged on Obstacles (30%), Flat Tricks (30%) and Composition (40%).

The Prizes

Pro Womens Wakeboard: USD 450 / 300 / 150 Pro Mens Wakeboard: USD 750 / 500 / 250 Pro Wakeskate: USD 750 / 500 / 250 Total: USD 3,900
