Skateboard Judging Education YouTube Channel Announcement

Written by Niall Neeson

World Skate is once again pleased to present a new, permanent rolling asset in our inventory to help aspiring judges, athletes, expert audiences, and National Federations (NF) / National Governing Bodies (NGB) support staff better understand how skateboard judging is currently conducted and evolving in our Olympic sport.


The World Skate SB Judging Education YouTube channel launches today (please subscribe, this is our advice!)

Its library has nearly 180 videos that break down fundamentals and analyze individual athlete performances and their awarded scores through Event Performance & Trick ledgers and run-throughs.

Every subsequent event will be added to the ongoing series of event-dedicated playlists to create a permanent record of judging conduct at each World Skate event.

In so doing, we intend to create a new depth of understanding and transparency regarding the skateboard judging process as applied to World Skate events, as well as a portal through which you can learn and progress in judging for yourself, should you so desire.
