Waterski

Waterski is a sport where an individual or moore is pulled behind a motor boat or a cable ski installation.

The surface area of the ski keeps the person skimming on the surface of the water allowing the skier to stand upright while holding the tow rope.

List of disciplines

  • Jump
  • Shortboarding (Tricks)
  • Slalom - Waterski
  • Wakeboarding
  • Waterski

In Jump, only the distance counts. The water skier is pulled at a constant speed (57 km/h for men and 51 km/h for women). The best water skiers jump more than 70 metres for men and more than 56 metres for women.  To accomplish this, they increase their speed by cutting towards the jump allowing them to increase their speed to around 100 km/h.

In Shortboarding (Tricks) each skier must execute in two passes of 20 seconds, the greatest number of tricks.  Each of the tricks counts differently with regards to their difficulty.  The skier with the highest aggregate score is the winner. Tricks include flips, body rotations, wake jumps etc.

In Slalom, the competitor skis around six buoys placed alternatively on opposite sides at 11.5 metres from the centre line, along the course measuring 259 metres in length, entering and exiting through a pair of gate buoys.  At the end of each pass at a speed of 58 km/hr for men and 55 km/hr for women, the rope is shortened. 

The winner is the skier that rounds the greatest number of buoys with the shortest rope.

Wakeboarding is a combination of surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and water skiing. A wakeboard looks like a fat snowboard with a pair of bindings attached to it. The wakeboard rider carves turns with body leans and by rocking the board. During competition, riders perform flips and spins and other acrobatic stunts in the air and on the water. These tricks are spectacular to witness - some athletes may go as high as 8 meters in the air while doing a manoeuvre.


COMPETITION FORMAT

Each rider is allowed two passes through the wakeboard course during which time the rider may perform any routine they choose. They will be judged on three subjective style categories, to arrive at a single combined score.

Riders are encouraged to perform a smooth flowing routine with a wide variety of tricks. Each manoeuvre should be executed as cleanly as possible and taken to its limit.

Judges will award a maximum of 100 points to each rider based on their overall impressions of the routine performed. The judges will score each rider in each of the following categories:

Execution - 33.3 Points
This reflects the level of perfection to which each manoeuvre was performed, as well as the successful completion of the routine with a minimum number of falls.

Intensity - 33.4 Points
This reflects how big the moves were performed, as well as the technical difficulty of the tricks executed.

Composition - 33.3 Points
This reflects the overall composition of the routine in terms of the rider's ability to perform a variety of manoeuvres in a flowing, creative sequence.
