About

Standard Event

Competition consists of three rounds in each of the following:

Speed: goal is to navigate the parachute through the boundaries of the course in the fastest time possible. Lasers are used at each "gate" of the course to measure the timing and position of each competitor. 

 

The current ratified record is 1.943 seconds, set by Mario Fattoruso in 2019.


Distance: goal is to begin by dragging a foot in the water before Gate 1 and then continue to fly straight down the course as far as possible. The distance is measured from the entry gate to the first point of contact with the ground. The world's best athletes have shown flights up to 222 m.

Accuracy: goal is to drag a foot through as many water gates as possible and then land in the accuracy zone. 10 points are deducted if a stand-up landing is not achieved.

Freestyle Event

In the Freestyle event, the competitor navigates his parachute through the course performing

pre-determined or free moves. The competitor’s objective is to navigate a parachute through a course contacting the surface of the water in the manner dictated by the chosen Freestyle move(s) and end with a stand up landing.
