SkimZA brings you MockTest 2011 – this was going to be the first ever skimboarding competition to be held in Cape Town, but it has since been downgraded to a ‘mocktest’ including expression sessions.

The one day event will take place on the right hand side of Camps Bay beach. Clifton 1st & 2nd will serve as a backup beaches. There will also be a possible pre-contest session on Friday afternoon to welcome the riders coming down from Durban.

  • Fri 18th: 5:30pm – High Tide @ 21:00 (pre-contest free-skimming session)
  • Sun 20th: 8:00am – High Tide @ 09:30
  • Sun 20th: 8:00pm – After Party @ 20:00 – Rafikis

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!

STRUCTURE

This will be a very informal & chilled event. Don’t expect big marquees, sound systems & sponsorships.

  1. The MockTest – various heats, leading up to the final with 4 riders
  2. Expression Sessions – Most Impressive trick, Biggest Air & Worst Wipeout

MOCKTEST
For the mocktest riders will be “seeded” (to the best of our ability) & will be grouped into heats containing 3 or 4 riders each. 2 riders of each heat will progress to the next round (read under “Voting” for details). Each heat will last 15min & there will be no age or gender divisions – we will take both into consideration.

EXPRESSION SESSIONS
For the free-skimming sessions riders will be grouped into heats of 3 or 4 riders. Each heat will last 15min in which riders have the chance to perform/land the most impressive trick / wave, biggest air, best wrap & prevent the worst wipeout.

VOTING (“JUDGING”)

There will be no official judging for this event.

At the end of each heat a quick vote will be called. All riders that are in close proximity can vote using a show of hands. The riders with the most votes will progress to the next heat.

RULES

Heats/Sessions will run for 15min each. Each rider can run for as many waves as he/she chooses, however riders should be fair & sporting with regards to wave selection & behaviour.

Best 5 waves count & in theory should be “judged” by the audience …

FRONT SIDE / BACK SIDE RULE

Just for your interest…

This is a rule that is used throughout the UST & would apply if this event was properly judged. However this won’t apply to our event.

The frontside/backside rule means that (of your 5 waves) 2 have to be frontside & 2 have to be backside – the 5th wave can be either. This encourages more diverse skimming.

So, if you only run backside, then a maximum of 3 waves will count.
We’ll encourage this, but it won’t be possible to monitor this with audience voting.

MOCKTEST HEATS & SCHEDULE

The event will be happening on SUNDAY 20th NOV. Meeting at Camps Bay at 8am sharp.

Please note that the first Heat A will start at 8:30 sharp. If you are not ready to skim when your heat starts, then you probably won’t win your heat.

The schedule is a guideline. Please be ready to skim 15min before & 15min after the scheduled tome for your heat. Each heat is 15min with a 5min voting & switch-over time before the next heat starts.

Unfortunately we won’t have any prices. We skimming for bragging rights!
