• (Pro & Adv percentages have changed to match world series percentages, the risk for kickers is far higher than rail hits. While riders may not get their exact hit on a rail, they rarely fall. Features only highlights rails and then kickers, traditional is held to showcase the most well rounded riders through all three disciplines and now composition has also been raised to verify the strength of the overall run.)
Each week the park will choose ONE different feature fitting:
1. Rail/Transfer Left
2. Rail/Transfer Right
3. Kicker Left
4. Kicker Right
• The order is up to the host 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.
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. (This may vary from site to site due to size of the cable, at TSR the run ends after the rails in stretch one, at BSR the end is after the kickers) The rider must let go before tower one. We will go through the running order and then return to the first rider and go through the complete order a second time. The judges will choose the riders best run and discard the other completely. All divisions EXCEPT beginner & amateur wakeskate will get a wildcard. The wildcard is one extra trick that will be added to the riders best run. The wildcard trick should be done immediately following the riders second turn if he or she does not fall. Just remain riding and perform your wildcard where appropriate. If the rider falls on their second run they should immediately return to the starting dock to get their wildcard turn. While on your wildcard lap ONLY do the single wildcard trick or the judges may score the wrong trick. The same trick will not be scored twice in the same run but can be repeated in the second run since the judges will be taking the best turn not a combination of the two.
