What makes a winning video?

IMPORTANT!: This is NOT a “best move” video contest.
Primary criteria: Speed. Power. Control. Style.

The judging team (VEHEMENCE, We Bodyboard, RIPTIDE and selected guests) will consider a number of elements when reviewing the entries, this includes, but not limited to: wave size and type, difficulty of the move, the way the video is filmed. As an example, a poorly film
incomplete move on a big wave may be favored over a well filmed completed move on a small wave.


Every month, submit any number of single move/single wave unedited videos, no longer than 45 seconds each. All video types are accepted as long as it features an individual riding dropknee/jackstance on a bodyboard, this includes water angles, POV and land angles.
Videos should be a min of 1080p/HD in landscape format. Videos are to be submitted online through the contest page on
