2014 Ladies World Street Rankings Explained
World Cup Skateboarding is excited to have been a major contributor in the growth Girls street skateboarding over the past 21 years and will continue to develop and support Girls Street skateboarding around the world.
New for 2014:
Skateboarding in 2014 is a different world from when WCS started 21 years ago in 1994, when WCS was the only International Skateboarding Events Organizing Body in the world. All these years, we have also been the only organization to keep worldwide rankings for skateboarding, with Ed Templeton being announced as the first WCS Street World Champion in 1995. Today there are numerous International Events Companies that any sponsor, promoter or group can hire. Some are full on Corporate owned events companies and some are core skater owned based operations. All have proved to produce top level quality skateboarding competitions. We applaud everyone world wide that has made a commitment to showcasing skateboarding and wish everyone a great new year! In plain English, there’s a lot going out there and the pro skater of today has so many choices or opportunities to decide on.
WCS has adopted a new rule in that any major skateboarding competition with the attendance of any 3* of the top 5 WCS Ranked skaters from 2013 will receive WCS points and be included in the WCS World Rankings. WCS looks forward to supporting the skaters in their freedom to skate any competition of their choice. We feel this new rule will enhance and make the WCS World Rankings more viable and stronger. WCS Sanctioned events will receive double points.
