Current scoring Does give bonuses for big tricks

Within the last year or two, the freestyle scoring system did add bonus points if your trick was judged "huge". I forget what the exact percentage is, but if a loop is worth 20 points, a really huge loop might be worth something like 25 points.

The reason the competitors really need to go in with some idea of what they are going to do is that they also changed it to encourage variety so that now you can only get scored on the same trick once (no more 56 cartwheels to rake up the points). So doing loop after loop doesn't help your score.

What a deusch!

My personal opinion about Jackson? Create a company, build my kids a playboat, have my wife judge all the competitions, have Jackson win all the competitions, and brag about myself as much as possible.
Jackson sucks! EJ was a pretty cool guy before his company, but now he's another American Professional Asshole, oops, I meant athlete.
Look at our other professional sports, Basketball players jumping in the stands, all sports people beating up girlfriends, family, each other.
Jackson is the SOUL reason that has made me asshamed to be a playboater... anyone for Big South this weekend?

I've got a case of beer that says you've never met and talked to EJ.

boofyak, if there is a better example of playa hatin' on this board than your post about EJ then I'll add a case to Darren's bet. Man, EJ is just out there kicking ass and you want to take a sucker punch. EJ, in four years has done a miraculous job of turning his dream into reality, and creating 30% market share, and giving me an opportunity to paddle the best and driest boats on the market. I like and support EJ, whom I barely know, because the man said to the corporation he previously worked for, we should be doing it this way to give the enthusiast what they want, they said no, so he went and did it himself. If you can't respect that in this sport....karma gonna get cha! Good luck in the Cool World!

Dude that is ridiculous,by nearly all accounts he's a great guy and makes excellent boats.For how good he is,he doesn't have a big head he plays the holes with the locals gives advice and encouragement,even tries to learn from average Joe if he sees them doing something new and different.

I've met EJ three times. Agreed. Great guy. I wish all athletes and business men were like him.

Guys who are trashing EJ on these pages are just jealous and nothing is more contemptible then poison spit out by envious people. They mostly have a very little life going to a boring job every day with nothing better to do then waste there time on mountain buzz trashing people. What gets them the most is the fact that EJ can live his dreams 24-7 and they can only do it on weekends.
But getting back to EJ I think its another first I dont know anyone else whos been booed at a freestyle comp.!!! Well except maybe Terry and Pat at the G.C.R.

Like I said

Believe it or not boys, I know EJ. I've borrowed boats off his motorhome, and have paddled with him at Rock Island on many occasions (where we met) and on Tallulah Gorge.
EJ is a nice guy, in person. Have you read his website? I don't admire people who talk about themselves as the best, even if they are. I can't take anything away from the way EJ paddles, because I've seen the amazing, many times, in person.
I don't like Jackson, the kayak company. I know they are family oriented, and most parent's buying their kid a boat, will also buy themselves a Jackson. "It's fun!" They are also teaching a back-deck, scar your face roll??? WTF That's really fun, teach that to your daughter!
I've just lost respect for the guy the past few years reading articles about how good EJ thinks he is. Hell, we all think we're badasses, but who else wants to hear about it.
Have you ever met a world champion, and didn't know it? I met, worked, and boated with a guy for almost 6 months before I found out he was the first freestyle canoe "world champ." This is the type of person I admire.

I think you're a troll. What the hell does EJ have to do with basketball players going into the stands and beating on people? If your bs is true about borrowing boats from EJ..nice way to repay the guy: shit talking on an internet forum. Choke on dick.
