Team event details – 4 team members per team. Each team can be any ability from complete novice to expert. There will be a list of tricks that each team can perform for points. These will range from spins, to flip tricks, to riding inflatable's, throwing a ball to and from the team member on the ride etc. Each trick completed will receive one point for that team. The team with the most points at the end of the time allowed wins. Other teams can distract the team on the ride to gain an advantage in safe way.
In all categories apart from the team event, each run will last 45 sec with the chance at the end of that run to try one bonus trick. The bonus trick will not decrease your score but can improve it. Each run will be scored out of 10 to one decimal place. Eg 5.5. For an average run 10 for perfect, a 1 for a poor run. Top 2 rider's progress, runs will be scored on style, variety of tricks, difficulty of manoeuvres, and use of the whole wave as well as Progression of manoeuvres. How tricks are landed will also be taken into consideration. For example hands on the matt to land the manoeuvre will deduct from the score of the manoeuvre.
