There are different DANCE & FREESTYLE competitions, live as well as online:





– DANCE GROMS (everyone age 1-14 )

There is also a

– AMATEUR program 

IMPORTANT: Riders can only join ONE of the Dance categories.

DANCE WOMEN is only accessible by people who identify themselves as woman.  

DANCE OPEN is accessible by everyone (so also people who identify as women) 14 or over the age of 14. 


An INTERMEDIATE* rider is able to ride their board comfortably during a competition run and is able to showcase a variety of longboard dancing and freestyle. There is no maximum in contestants but when there are more riders than we can handle time wise we will begin with an elimination round. The entry level for intermediate is a bit higher than the former entry level of non sponsored. 

The program for AMATEURS* is not a competition. Riders are prepared for a competition so get advise instead of points. They get to skate half a minute (two riders at the same time) without being judged. Just to get the feeling how it is to skate a line in that big competition area. After that the participants go to a separate area where they can skate and get tips and can ask questions, guided by one or more of our judges.

*Riders can choose in which of these they feel more comfortable. In doubt choose amateur because you will learn more.

PRO is the former ‘sponsored’ level. You don’t have to be sponsored by a brand but this is the highest possible level competition. If you doubt you have a pro level you should be in intermediate.

The GROM competition will select the best riders who are under 14 at the time of the event. Groms need to be accompanied by an adult who is present during the run(s)

The tricks are judged on creativity, difficulty, technicality and style. One person at the same time. The riders make attempt 1, in ascending order (1-30)
and after the riders make attempt 2 in descending order (30-1). Everyone gets 2 attempts. The tricks of attempt 1 and 2 can be different. Best trick counts.
One winner !


As G-Turn we count a manual on your nose or tail describing at least a “G” or a “C”, anything less doesn’t count.The G-Turn can be introduced, ended or interrupted by a trick. More than 2 wheels on the ground end the combo and therefore the try. Extra points will be rewarded for creativity, difficulty and style. One person at the same time. The riders make attempt 1, in ascending order (1-3
and after the riders make attempt 2 in descending order (30-1)
Best G-Turn counts.
