What was the judging criteria?
The judging criteria was exactly the same as with the Red Bull King of the Air in Cape Town. It’s about your 3 best tricks and an overall impression as the 4th score adding up to a maximum amount of 40 points.
The tricks are scored with 70% of the points going to the horizontal and vertical distance and the final 30% takes into account style, technical difficulty in combination with extremity.
This way we can really find the most complete extreme big air rider!
What set up did you run throughout the day?
I had my favorite setup for every heat! The new 2021 Duotone Dice 10m is such a machine on 22m lines. Because the Dice is so fast and direct, the 10m is a megalooping machine and it allows me to ride a bigger kite than other riders. And then riding the Jaime SLS 139 on straps, this board just gives me full control and confidence to get the perfect takeoff and deals well with the hard landings.
