Judging Criteria for Wakeboarding Competitions

The judging criteria for wakeboarding competitions may vary from one competition to the next but there are certain elements commonly used in judging these competitions. Some of these elements are:

• Technical Control

• Difficulty

• Air Time

• Falls

Technical control refers to how well the wakeboarder controls the board, transitions from one maneuver to the next and recovers. The difficulty level is judged by how complex the maneuvers are. The air time includes time when the entire board leaves the water. The falls are usually judged on quantity as well as cause of the fall.
