That's a bit sneaky isn't it? Obviously not against the rules but it seems to go a bit against what i would assume the reasons for organising an Asian qualifier are lol.

Yeah I'm not convinced having an Asian wild card is fair on other competitors, it's not an area known for strong winds and big air riders. Riders should all be assessed on their videos. Lewis got through an easier group of riders there.

Angely... ripping so hard.

Megaloop kgb no problem for Marc. At the end of the day the judging is all that matters though.. if they score higher fora big dangly board handle thing.. that is that... do that$

I hope they have better judging transparency this year.. it has been too subjective, and imo didnt reward innovation enough.

Anyone know where the new rules with the judging criteria/ bias ratios are.. impossible to approach these things without knowing this clearly first. The less judge opinion based the fairer it will be.. set it in stone the best you can.
