Most of the wakeboard contests are based on the freeride concept. A ride starts at the first mark and ends at the second, the distance between those two is ca 370 metres. You have to do as many good tricks as you can. An official jury with four judges quotes the tricks.
The maximum score is 100 and is composed like this :
a quotation for perfection, the execution of the trick.
a quotation of how big the tricks are made, also the technical difficulty
a quotation of the total ride. A rider who boards creative and with variation will get higher scores
The total score is the average of the judges.
