The run starts when the rider leaves the dock and goes until the rider passes the Pool/Rooftop Transfer rail section a second time or on the rider’s second fall (one pick up).

The 3/4 marker is the kickers on the second lap. After a rider has passed the kickers a second time, they will not receive another pick up, regardless of falls used.

If you drag, tumble up (your hips behind you) your run is over and you risk being disqualified from the entire event. 

Hot dog handles are caused by the rider, if you fall your run is over, if you do not fall, you have one lap to reset handle and pickup your run after the hot dog handle occurred.

Scores are predetermined by placement! Meaning the points rewarded for each placement are standardized, regardless of gap between runs.

If you have an equipment malfunction, please raise hand immediately and return to the starting dock.
