Focus on... Disciplines 2010

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The discipline system has been simplified for 2010, with the major disciplines being Freestyle, Course Racing, Wave Riding and Speed.

The two Freestyle Categories in 2009 have been a concession to the former two world tours, but it turned out that the stlyes are not that different apart from a few details. These details have been discusses in the IKA judging committee and as a result, there will be only one freestyle judging from 2010 on, and all events will be included in one unified world ranking.
