Riders will also be competing for IJSBA National Champion crowns in 12 Novice classes.

RACING FORMATS:
Closed Course -- Often described as “motocross on water,” closed course competition is a multiple-lap race with up to 20 riders maneuvering around a twisting, generally circular 1/2-mile course marked with buoys. Final events for all classes will consist of two motos (except the Pro Ski and Pro Runabout 1200 classes who will use a 60-point scoring system for three motos). Riders will advance to the final (motos) through qualifying in a heat race and/or Last Chance Qualifier. The rider with the best-combined finish from the two motos will be declared the closed course winner. The Pro Ski and Expert will also use two log jumps on the course, adding a significant degree of difficulty.

Slalom -- Racers individually negotiate a zigzag, 283-foot course around nine stationary buoys for the fastest time. Slalom-- Expert, Novice, Amateur Veteran Runabout classes ONLY.
Pro, Pro-Am, Sport, Masters, Amateur 14-15 Ski riders compete ONLY in Closed Course races.

Freestyle -- Always a crowd favorite, freestyle competitors perform a two-minute routine of watercraft acrobatics, demonstrating skill and form while executing difficult and creative maneuvers. Similar to gymnastics, judges score the routines “Olympic-style,” on a 1-to-10 basis, with 10 being “perfect”. A new, scored addition to this year’s event will have competitors complete a high-flying trick, in the wake of two powerboats. This will simulate a wave action found in surf competition.
