What a feature like this does show off is a great paddler's ability to link tricks.
I 100% disagree. It takes more skill to link moves on a flushy wave. Anyone can link up moves in a tiny sticky hole. Its just that the pros do it even better! Linking moves on a flushy wave would showcase real skills!
Even though the scoring may be technically accurate, it does not reflect the over all ride. Which in this case was low amplitude. There should be a deduction for small waves. I've seen Dane pull off better rides and I fear what he'll be sticking next month.
I'd give him the best freestyler on the planet award but not biased on that ride.
