Mission Statement… Our mission is to push the progression of longboarding as a sport by bringing together riders from all over the Mid Atlantic Region to compete against each other in the Mid-Atlantic Freeride Series. We want longboard events to continue growing in size and skill.
What is is...
The 2nd annual Mid-Atlantic Freeride Skate Series will have two divisions: Amateur and Open(Pro) This is a series of sanctioned longboard Freeride (aka slide) events that spans over the year (March-November). There will be a "Progressive Payout Purse" which will accumulate money from each participating event. After the final participating event (Skate the Cape Shred Festival 4), the Freeride Series Winners will be announced, prizes and cash payouts will be handed out to the Top 3 riders in each division. We will be keeping track of the rider standings via Facebook Page for the Series based on a points system. Point System: -Riders placing in the top 10 of any of the participating events will be awarded 5 points. -Riders placing in 4th and 5th (top 5) will be awarded 8 points. -Rider placing in 3rd will be awarded 10 points -Rider placing in 2nd will be awarded 12 points -Rider placing in 1st will be awarded 15 points Judging System: -Riders will be judged on style, difficulty, speed and creativity. -Each division splits into separate qualifying "jam" heats. Our judges will pick the top 10 riders from each division after qualifying heat(s). Those top 10 riders from the Amateur and Open (Pro) Division get put into the semi-final "jam" heat. After the Semis, the judges will pick the top 5 riders in each division to compete in the Finals. In the Finals, each rider gets 2 solo runs with name called out on PA system before each run. The Judges will pick the top 3 for podium results.
