The confusion in knowing who is winning a heat should be a thing of the past for windsurfing fans everywhere with the introduction of live scoring. The PWA judges, who have used a pen and paper method for almost 25 years, have been testing the new “live scoring” system that allows them to input their scores during a heat into a tablet computer and upload them to the internet.
Now it’s finally here! It is only fitting that Denmark will be the first place where we have that system up and running being an event that has driven a new generation of live interaction and social media in windsurfing.The PWA will introduce live scoring across all of its disciplines and events but it will make the biggest difference in wave and freestyle.

I think it’s good, but they should show the individual scores from the judges. Not just the average points for each move
