Gathering the international elite in nearly all of the sport’s different disciplines is not that common an occurrence, even though they share common ground: the water. Basically, it only happens once every four years, in The World Games. Equipment aside, there are some similarities between the tournament (water ski) and the barefoot competitions: both include slalom, tricks and jumps events. But wakeboarding, the most recent addition to the sport, has developed in a different direction: equipment, bindings and moves are quite similar to those in half-pipe snowboarding. With marks given for expression and intensity, the judges are looking for big air performances here too!
