(age determined as of January 1st, 2016)
Each rider will get two turns. The rider’s run will begin when he or she leaves the dock and will continue until he or she falls, or the carrier reaches tower one a second time. This means the rider gets a full lap and an extra pass on the first stretch. The rider must let go before tower one. We will go through the complete order a second time. The judges will choose the riders best run and discard the other completely.
Each week the park will choose ONE different feature fitting:
1. Rail/Transfer Left (Ronix Pryamid A-Frame Ledge on June 25th)
2. Rail/Transfer Right
3. Kicker Left
4. Kicker Right
(The order is up to the Action Wake Park)
The riders will be given multiple attempts (two or three) on one single chosen feature for that week and then ranked by best trick completed. At most parks each rider will go taking all three attempts before the next rider leaves the dock. If the rider falls he or she will be picked up by the cable system as allowed by the park. After four weeks of competitions, each area will be covered and the riders overall ranking will be decided by their top three scores.
