The IWWF’s Wakesurf Committee has just completed its second wakesurf judging seminar, since  the middle of May, having just recently released the first edition of its IWWF World Wakesurf Rules.

IWWF Wakesurf Judging Seminar in Hong Kong hosted by the Hong Kong Water Ski Association

Over the last two weeks, wakesurf judging seminars were conducted in Hong Kong and Korea, by IWWF Wakesurf Committee Member Marcus Lee, with over 50 participants in total.

Topics covered included officials’ code of conduct, safety, equipment, judging criteria & scoring, boat driving, boat set-up and setting up a wakesurf field of play.

Participants who attended the course and succesfully passed an examination received a national level wakesurf judge certification.

In an effort to establish an international standard for wakesurfing, IWWF plans to run more wakesurf judging seminars in other countries in the upcoming months.
