So, how do you get 48 pros skating an entire street plaza in an organized fashion in a limited amount of time so you can have a ripping skateboard shindig? There are many things to consider and many people to please, including a limited time live TV segment of just two hours for Fuel TV. Here's how we decided it will go. The basic format for the Pro Contest on Saturday for Maloof Money Cup is below. The Am Contest on Sunday morning will run the same way.
  • 48 skaters, 8 jams, 6 skaters per jam, 6 minutes per section
  • The course is divided into 3 sections
  • Judging format: see diagrams for details
  • Top 12 overall make the cut to the Finals on Sunday
  • Each section’s score is all obstacles combined for that section
  • Final score is an average of all 3 sections
  • All scores based on judges’ overall impression (not a single best trick type contest)
Check out the diagram of the course and sections to help explain it further.
