The goal of Less Than 5 is to represent wakeboarding via moves that are smooth and stylish. This is the key criteria the judges will be looking for. Make it look proper.

Live Event Rules

  • Each rider will have 2 passes to complete their best 5 trick line.
  • Every trick must be less than a 540 degree move, no standard inverted or dangling (Raley) moves will be scored. It’s pretty simple; straight airs, 180’s, and 360’s only. No inverts, no raleys, no 5’s, 7’s, 9’s, etc.
  • One of your 5 tricks must be a straight Method (no rotations – take off forward and land forward)
  • Rewind moves are allowed as long as the sum (360-180 = 180) of the spinning is 360 degrees or less. BUT, keep in mind – The goal of Less Than 5 is to make wakeboarding moves look smooth and stylish … More is not necessarily always better

Athlete Info

  • There will be 20 athletes – 16 invited riders and 4 qualified riders via the online qualifier
  • Athletes will be placed into heats – 4 heats of 5 riders. The top 2 riders in each heat will advance to finals.
  • Finals will be 8 riders

Scoring Criteria:

For the Live Event – The 3 expert judges scores will count for 100 percent of the judges scoring/placements.


Ties will be broken by the riders’ combined (sum of judges) method score. The tie breaker will go to the rider with the highest method score.

Reviewing Scores:

There will be no whining or protesting of scores.

Heat Seeding:

All seeding for the 2023 Less Than 5 event will be based on previous placings and the opinions of the Alliance Wake Team and random industry insiders who we think are smart.
