Competitions and Judges

At the HLO2016 you can take part in different disciplines. Here is all you need to know!

In the dance & freestyle contest we want you to show us your favorite trick combos and your smooth flow. Be creative and have fun on your board. Every rider has one qualification run of 1.5 minutes. The judges select who will proceed to the pre-final run (1.5 min./run) were the finalists are going to be identified. In the final run (2 min./run) will be decided who gets to the podium, earns the respect and is awarded with nice surprises.
Note: there will be no separation of sponsored and non-sponsored riders.
In the hippie jump contest we search for the highest jumpers on the board. Each registered rider has 2 tries to get over the bar that gets constantly higher after each round.
During your runs in the dance & freestyle contest the judges will draw special attention to new/creative/never seen tricks and choose the best trick after the finals. Last year nobody else than Fabio Martinez from Argentina won this contest with a Nollie Gazelle. Chapeau.
Show us your best G-turn combinations. You have 2 tries to impress the crowd and the judges.
We have 5 judges who are experts in longboard dancing & freestyle.
The judges will have a special focus on Dance, Freestyle, Consistency and Speed. Furthermore, you can earn special points for your creativity and your flow.
