Thank you Toby !
Judging criterias are hight and engagement.
Here is a part of official rules : (sorry for the bad translation, I translated it directly with an automated translator....
Composition of the jury: The events will have an odd number of judges, with 3 judges per round plus one chief judge.
1) A competitor must only be scoured if he is in the designated competition area. Whether a competitor is in or out of the competition area, will be at the discretion of the Chief Judge and the judges themselves.
2) Upon request, the judges' ﬁnales scores, for each judge, will only be shown to competitors.
EVALUATION CRITERIA: MEGALOOP and GENERAL PRINTING:
1) The judges will consider the following categories:
Each rating will include:
- 60% height. Go as hard and high as possible.
- Height in combination with extreme movements is a priority, but we will also take into account the horizontal distance covered, combined with some movements.
- 30% engagement controlled. Think of extreme power and/or extreme technique, or ﬁnalement of a combination of these solutions, provided it is executed at an appropriate height. No limitation on the maximum number of attempts or repetitions for the same jump
. The variety within your 4 best jumps is a key factor, because the objective is to reward the most complete runner. * 10% overall impression will be included in the rating.
The average of these 4 equally weighted scores will be ﬁnale. The qualiﬁcation scores of tied competitors must be broken in favour of the competitor with the highest score. If the tie persists, it must be broken in favour of the 2nd highest score.
- The height of the tricks
- The diﬃcultes / The originality
- Commitment / power
The maximum number of moves during the heat is not limited, but only the four best tricks will be selected at ﬁnal, giving 4 notes.
The variety within these 4 best moves (tricks from diﬀérentes categories) will be a key factor, the objective being to reward the most complete big air rider.
The score of each trick will be directly related to the quality of the execution.
OTHER ASPECTS OF JUDGMENT
1) During a bar passage, the chicken loop is considered as part of the bar. Grabbing the famous chicken loop:) when the bar is passed, still gives credit to the tricks although it is not considered a clear passage.
2) If a competitor "touches the buttocks" when landing, but keeps the momentum and the board touches the water first followed by its buttock, the judges can always give credit. (It is a crash if the competitor lands on his back and the board is completely out of the water and then continues to slide.) It is up to the chief judge to determine whether it is a crash or a control. Each judge will determine the credit he or she will give to this reception. The credit given to a "failed" landing is directly related to the risk factor involved in performing the tricks. For a high risk factor, judges will not deduct (many) points.
