Skate Best Tricks

Skateboarders are scored on their three best hits out of five on the Giganta ramp.

The Event

Each athlete will get 5 attempts to execute the 3 best tricks of their choice. Athletes will choose to hit either a 40-foot or 50-foot jump to perform each of their best tricks, and will be judged on their 3 best runs.

Each trick will be multiplied by the panel’s pre-agreed degree of difficulty for that trick, with a maximum score of 10 per trick. Only the highest scores of the three different tricks will be counted for each athlete, and the athlete who achieves the highest cumulative score out of 30 will be the winner of the event.


In the Skate Best Tricks Event, athletes will choose to hit either a 40-foot or 50-foot jump—measuring from the takeoff of the ramp to the “sweet spot” of the landing—to perform their best tricks.

All of the ramp systems for Nitro World Games have been in research and development for over five years by Nitro Circus in consultation with athletes and industry leaders, the first collaborative effort of its kind in action sports competition.
