The qualification system for the KSP world tour shall give the top wave riders in the world the opportunity to compete against each other, while creating a clear pathway of how to enter a KSP event and giving riders from as many nations as possible a chance to compete.
2012 will see a slight change in the World Championship Titles and associated world rankings to reflect the development of the disciplines in 2011.
The focus will be on four major disciplines – Freestyle, Course Racing, Slalom and Wave. These disciplines have world and continental championships as well as full world ranking systems. Any other disciplines – like speed, big air etc, may hold world and continental championships, but due to the low number of events will not have full world rankings in place.
