About the Freestyle Competition
The competition is held at sea, on a sheltered body of calm water.
Entries will be judged by a panel of five professionals who will allocate cumulative points on each stage from the 1/16 finals that will define the final ranking. Each rider will be judged independently on the following criteria:
– Variety of figures (risk taking, technical difficulty and innovation)
– Technical performance figures
– Attitude of the competitor (position, facial expression)
– Energy of the competitor (number of figures, speed and pace of implementation)
– Aesthetic figures
