    With Sure-Path, I would think that scores are now instantaneously “official”. I understand that they are still reviewed but, I would believe there is little to review, aside from it being “the standard procedure”. I am liking the Sure-Path (or equivalent) systems being “standard procedure” more and more. Just my opinion.
    Great skiing Freddie!

    After last weekend, I would have been surprised if Freddie didn't take down that 41! Also, I'm really missing the very entertaining intensity that @adamhcaldwell brings to these tournaments. Hoping that changes soon!

    By the way, where is Manon, T-Gas, Asher, etc? Don't know what the purse is for other events, this one was published. $3000 to win.

    How is Sure-Path being used in pro tournaments? I watched a lot of the (very excellent) TWBC broadcast and I did not see it mentioned. Also, there is no talk of re-rides.
  • skiepskiep Posts: 374 Crazy Baller
    The sure path data is sent to a monitor with a judge watching it. All green screens no re-rides.

    Noticed the Nate was in the boat for the Women's finals. has a competitor at a pro event ever judged prior to skiing like that before?
  • LeonLLeonL Posts: 2,770 Crazy Baller
    @Jordan I don't recall ever seeing that. I've seen Nate boat judge at several "REL" tournaments though.

    @Laz as @skierjp stated, there were no resides for out of tolerance boat path. This is a testament to Scott G and Kieth A, which pulled all the open skiers. The last thing a driver wants, is to have an out of tolerance boat path for skiers who’s livelihood depends on their performance.

    Nate has judged at the CA Pro Am in the past. I think both him and Regina (maybe) judged in the boat for Masters Men.

    cool to see S line used at the pro event!!

    Question.... why were 2 different brands of boats used?

    @UCFskier, maybe they were using the Malibu to get Regina to be able to take a crack at the record. But, it's good to see the various manufacturers used, especially if we are concerned they might not be interested in making 3-event boats in the future.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.
  • UCFskierUCFskier Posts: 166 Baller
    for sure... I thought it was pretty interesting! I wonder if at some point all the major companies will be at all events allowing athletes to pick a boat. at least that way they would be allowed to challenge records without consequences.

    Great Job LAKE 38 and TWBC!!!!
