WAVES SHORT RULES 2012
Please note that the Wave Rules book have the way of right.
This short Rule Book is done to help the riders!
The primary criteria is the same as that used by the Association of Surfing Professionals. "radical controlled manoeuvres in the critical section of a wave with speed, power and flow" http://184.108.40.206/asp2005/2006criteria.asp?rView=w
Consideration is also given to:
• Selection of and maximizing the potential of a wave
• Using the power of the wave rather than the kite
• Risk = Consequences x Likelihood of failure (eg riding unhooked or strapless)
• Repertoire of manoeuvres
• The dismount
Each wave scored out of 10
A maximum of 20 waves will be scored
Result = total of each riders best three (3) waves
Interference results in loss of best wave score for each offence
If a move ends too far in front of or on the back the wave that constitutes the end of a scored wave. If you subsequently move back onto the face of the wave it will be scored as a new wave ride.
Aerial moves not landed on the face of the same wave will only be considered as the dismount aspect of the score.
First to start riding a wave (or clearly defined swell line) closest to the critical section has right of way else starboard tack, upwind kite high, downwind kite low, etc
On the way back out you may turn onto any unridden wave without causing interference
