What Is It All About?
In the Oxford Dictionary it states that Freestyle is “A sports competition in which people taking part can use any style that they want” but what does Freestyle mean to Freestylers?
“A friendly atmosphere, with like minded people” - Keith Thomas
“Go out and do what you want on the water you don’t have set routine you go out and express what you feel and what you want to do, there is no right or wrong way of doing any of the tricks” - Anthony Burgess
“To me it’s just pure fun” - Craig Halloway
Three to five assorted judges will normally be doing the scoring, the freestyler being scored for getting in as many different unrepeated tricks as possible within the time, and successfully completing all of them. This applies to surface tricks, underwater ones, and of course the favourite big air ones. Spectacular big air tricks will not necessarily score any higher than a technically as difficult surface trick that may be more difficult to see, but as long as all the tricks “flow” together well, all the different types of tricks can carry roughly equal marks.
This is a fun event that’s aimed at introducing new riders to the world of Freestyle. Anyone and everyone is welcome at the FNT, be it you just want to watch, learn something new, compete or just to have a family weekend away. The FNT caters for all with Saturday hosting the competitions and fun events like Zorbing in the evening and social Saturday night where riders can relax after competing with a drink or two (or more)!
