What makes a winning video?

This is NOT a “best move” video contest.

Primary criteria: Speed. Power. Control. Style.

The judging team (VEHEMENCE, We Bodyboard 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 filmed incomplete move on a big wave may be favored over a well filmed completed move on a small wave.

Get out there and have some fun!
