Judges will analyse the following major elements when scoring rides.
(a) A surfer must perform radical controlled manoeuvres in the most critical section of a wave with speed, power and flow.
(b) Innovative and progressive surfing as well as the combination and variety of repertoire (of major manoeuvres) will be taken into consideration when rewarding points for a surfer’s performance.
(c) The surfer who performs to the criteria above, exhibiting the maximum degree of difficulty and commitment on the waves shall maximise his/her scoring potential.
