Judging Information for Contestants (Click to Expand)
A well-executed run shows a good degree of difficulty, variety and aesthetics. These three pillars embody a run in Longboard Dancing and Freestyle. These requirements are judged by the following categories:
- Degree of difficulty of maneuvers and commitment
The athlete should maintain control throughout the whole run. How difficult certain tricks and steps are, is taken into account while scoring this category. The athlete should engage the performed tricks with minimal insecurities and instabilities.
- Variety (dancing, freestyle, manuals, innovative moves)
An athlete should mix up the different subcategories in a harmonious way. A run should be balanced between dance steps, tricks, manuals and innovative moves. Not mixing up the run will result in a lower score in this category.
- Aesthetic and personal expression (style of execution, creativity of tricks and routines)
This is subjective and can be defined as a display of the mastery of the individual tricks executed. Aesthetics and personal expression define an athletes’ run. It sets their runs apart from the other same or alike manoeuvres performed by different athletes.
The ability to land tricks, sequences, or lines without bailing and maintaining full control during the whole run of the athlete. At the beginning of each run the consistency score is set to 10. Each missed trick or step will deduct one point of the consistency score.
To finalize the scores per run a flow factor will be applied to an athlete’s run. It is based on how well the competitor puts a run together and rewards or sanctions the smoothness of transitions between tricks and combos.
The flow factor is a judge’s opportunity to appreciate remarkable runs in terms of flow of the performance. The flow factor acts as a multiplier to the total score with the following options:
x0.9 - Underperforming multiplier - athlete’s performance does not look harmonious or well connected.
x1.0 - Standard multiplier - applied as default value. The run is balanced and well connected.
x1.1 - Outstanding multiplier - exceptionally good flow and transitions throughout the entire run.
The competition stretch will be 80 meters long.
For the Preliminaries and Semi-finals, every participant will have 1 minute to present their dance and freestyle line. Every round there will be two participants going concurrently to showcase their lines.
The finalist will have their music choice played and will have 1 minute 30 seconds to present their final lines individually.

Hey everyone, I'm Natalie! I've been longboarding for around 9 years. I focus more on longboard freestyle and dance, but I skate freeride and downhill too!
