Any submission deemed inappropriate may not be aired or disqualified from judging at the Online ARO live 2020 team’s discretion.
The submissions will be judged in real time during the live stream and winners will be announced at the end of the stream. Judging will consist of the following:
Difficulty can be applied to a stunt, line or a single technical trick. Tricks on unique obstacles, technical combinations or a long line of difficult tricks are the key. When comparing difficulty, the volume will be the overall deciding factor.
Style refers to both individual style and overall confidence on rollerblades. The competitor must be recognized as confident and effortless when performing tricks. Confidence and individual style on difficult tricks are an unbeatable combination.
Creativity refers to both obstacle and trick selection. Finding creative lines or hitting an unexpected spot will stand out to the judges. New or creative tricks that stand out from numerous other tricks performed by other competitors are rewarded.
The same way you might plan out a run to impress the judges at a normal contest, the way you set out your edit will judged at the Online ARO live. Try to avoid showing the same trick numerous times and mix up your edit with a combination of lines and big tricks.
