Winners will be determined by overall impression.
Best Trick doesn’t win, but the whole performance.
Judging is based on the following criteria:

When judging qualification rounds of the competition, a competitors potential will also be taken into consideration. A competitor that is blading conservatively, but consistently or a competitor that attempts difficult tricks and displays the potential for landing them will be considered when choosing competitors to qualify.

General advice: Watch out for each other. Starting a line on the opposite of the park from another competitor does only cause being in the way of each other.

Referring to the “Best Trick doesn’t win” criteria it is important to connect different tricks into a fluid looking line. 2-5 or so tricks combined to a line but not a whole trained contest-run (Time is limited and everybody wants to ride a couple of times). Doing only one trick after the other doesn’t help winning.

Difficulty can be applied to a stunt, line or a single technical trick. Tricks on obstacles that no one else touches, technical combinations or a long line of difficult tricks are the key. When comparing difficulty, the deciding factor will be the overall danger of a trick or tricks.

Style refers to both individual style and overall confidence on rollerblades. The competitor must be recognized as confident and effortless when performing tricks. Confidence and individual style on difficult tricks are an unbeatable combination.

Creativity refers to both obstacle and trick selection. Course obstacles are limited. Competitors that discover new uses or creative tricks on overlooked obstacles are rewarded. On popular obstacles, trick selection is the key. New or creative tricks that stand out from numerous other tricks performed by other competitors are rewarded.
