Judging Criteria

Josh KerrWith a number of enhancements being activated on the ASP World Tour this season, the ASP Judging Criteria has been refined to reflect the progression of the sport.

The ASP Judging Criteria for 2010 and beyond is as follows:

Surfers must perform to the ASP Judging Key Elements to maximize their scoring potential.

Judges analyze the following major elements when scoring waves:

  • Commitment and Degree of Difficulty
  • Innovative and Progressive Manoeuvres
  • Combination of Major Manoeuvres
  • Variety of Manoeuvres
  • Speed, Power and Flow

* It is important to note that the emphasis on certain elements is contingent upon the location and the conditions on the day, as well as changes of conditions during the day.

Scale Utilized:

[ 0.0 – 1.9: Poor ]  [ 2.0 – 3.9: Fair ]  [ 4.0 – 5.9: Average ]  [ 6.0 – 7.9: Good ]   [ 8.0 – 10.0: Excellent ]

The aforementioned criteria will be applied across the board at ASP World Tour, ASP Women’s World Tour, ASP World Qualifying Series (WQS) and ASP Pro Junior event.

In addition to the refinements being made for the shortboard circuits, the ASP World Longboard Tour will also enjoy the following revised criteria:
