Freestyle Results

Freestyle is a trick-focused style of flying. STACK runs competitions specifically for freestyle flyers.

The competition is based on the Tricks Party format. Competitors fly four imposed tricks followed by a trick-focused ballet set to music. The imposed tricks are scored for accuracy. The ballet is scored for trick variety and quality and fit to the music. However, in the UK format the tricks in the ballet need not be specified in advance - the trick content score applies to the ballet as a whole.
