The wind is on and the main event kicks off today. The men’s division are up first with the riders competing in two man heats lasting eight minutes each and they’ll be judged on 100% strapless freestyle, although that criteria may be adjusted at midday today if the swell builds.
During these early strapless freestyle heats, the riders will be allowed to complete as many tricks as they can (providing they only do one on each tack) and their six highest scoring tricks will count towards their overall score.
