(a) Where a judge misses judging a competitor’s ride, an attempt will be made to identify the missing ride by referring to other judges’ cards.
(b) If the Referee is satisfied that the missed ride has been identified a score is given to the ride by calculating the average of the scores awarded by other judges for the same wave and then adjusting the average of this score to reflect the scoring level given by the judge who missed the ride.
(c) The Referee will determine that the value given to the ride is satisfactory and authorise the adjustment of the judge’s card accordingly.
(d) This situation can be avoided if the wave spotter keeps the judges well informed of the competitor’s positions.
