The 2018 Canadian Wakesurf National Championship is this upcoming weekend (8/17/2018 – 8/19/2018)!
The event format will allow each pro to compete 3 times and receive 1 score for each run while all other divisions will compete twice.
Each run will be scored according to our standard D.I.V.E. rules detailed below:
❗️Difficulty -The difficulty of each maneuver is based on any number of variables. Judges will use these in order to subjectively determine how difficult certain maneuvers are in comparison to others. Variables reflecting “Degree of Difficulty” include, but are not limited toStance: Switch vs normal, and heelside vs toeside (approach and finish for surface maneuvers, or takeoff and landing for aerial maneuvers).Combinations: Multiple maneuvers linked together and the sequence in which they are performed.Embellishments: Grabbed maneuvers and types of grabs; stalled maneuvers; tweaked, boned, or off-axis maneuvers.Board direction: Maneuvers performed with board revert vs forward.Innovation: Performing a maneuver that has never been seen. Introducing a new method of performing a maneuver.
❗️Intensity – Scored based on how aggressively and how powerfully an athlete is performing their maneuvers. Keeping busy; pace of combinations; and height, speed, and power of maneuvers all play a part in how a judge subjectively determines an athlete’s intensity score.
❗️Variety – The variety of maneuvers performed in a competition run is what judges are looking for in order to determine the most versatile athlete. Wakesurfing runs are built on a foundation of maneuvers such as turns, ollies, airs, shuvs, rotations (body and/or board, air or surface, frontside or backside), etc. The diversity of maneuvers, or combinations of maneuvers performed by an athlete should be reflected in the subjective scoring category of “Variety”.
❗️Execution – Judges are looking for how “clean” or how well executed EACH individual maneuver is done, as well as execution throughout the ENTIRE competition run. Judges should consider the flow and composition of the athlete’s overall run, and whether the run was performed with confidence, and in an aesthetically pleasing manner.
