While reading the protest thread, I saw a few people mention about how quickly the riders were throwing tricks and that the judges would miss entire tricks.
Wakeskaters pack in twice as many tricks into a run as a wakboarder. I have judged grass roots wakeskating several times and I know that I miss tricks from trying to write down everything. We have to write the tricks down so that if some one has a question about their score we can refer to what we wrote.
Does anybody have a better system for judging wakeskating than to write everything down as you would do for a grass roots wakeboard run?
I was thinking three judges:
1. Judge 1 lip tricks
2. Judge 2 wake to wake tricks
3. Judge three tricks in the flats
With this format judge 1 would still have a pretty difficult time keeping up.
