Re: Does anyone care about ranking?

We care! I've always enjoyed the ranking system and when we started out I wondered "exactly how many people do this?" When I found out there was enough people and effort to create a ranking system it made slalom seem more legit. It's cool to see where you stack up, even if theres no system that can ...

It would be great to have legitimacy added to the pro class as everyone's mentioned I think something like this could work- All riders currently ranked as 'pro' are granted pro status. Add the top 20 ranked ams at the end of each year, as proposed by rick, and then have 10 open spots that could be a...

I really like the idea. It would make bring more legitimacy to the sport, and the fees seem very manageable.

ranking

I like Ricks idea of having the top 20 ams each year automatically move up to the pro class for the following season. It's simple, fair, gives amateurs something to compete for, and adds some sort of prestige to being a 'pro'. I am newer to the sport but I think completely eliminating the pro class ...

It was held September 18th at Bethel Colege (Mishawaka), IN and is listed on the contest calender as Prime. The...

I didn't see any from the US listed on the results status page. Are Prime events going to be included? If so, should I send the results that I have? I have them put into the proper format. Thanks everyone.

This was my first year being part of the sport. I have checked slalom skateboarder a couple times a week since march, and enjoy the site. I have been really motivated by the rankings. My brother and I traveled to as many events as we could afford to see where we stand against the top guys. We couldn...
