Intermediate Divisions - New Rules for 2022

The purpose of the Intermediate division is encourage new riders to compete.

Note that the Intermediate division does not feature at International titled events so is not relevant to TeamGB squad selection. If you’re aiming to qualify for Team GB then please enter one of the other divisions.

The eligibility for this division has been set as follows:

  • The winner of the Intermediate division is not eligible to compete in that division the following year

  • Riders are no longer eligible for the Intermediates division after achieving a podium place in that division for two years

  • The two eligibility rules above are applied from the 2018 UK Nationals onwards

  • The maximum level of tricks is as follows:

    • Men - Maximum two invert/glide tricks, one spin of 360 or above. No mobes.

    • Women - No inverts (or glide tricks); no spins of 360s above

    • Any tricks executed in an intermediate rider run exceeding this limit will not be scored (and in the case of the mens category if the limit is exceeded only the first inverts/glides/spins within that limit will be counted so riders should execute other tricks once they reach the limit)

  • The Chief Judge has discretion to run the Intermediate division on the smaller wakeboarding boat if one is being used for the Groms, Boys or Girls categories.
