World Skate International has established an International Skateboard Judging Commission (ISJC) to create an official skateboarding judging criteria and system.

The committee is made up of a diverse group of National Federation and Sport Organizer skateboard judging experts.

The aim of the ISJC is to standardize skateboarding judging criteria ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics based on what is universally agreed and accepted in current skateboarding competitions.

Olympic Skateparks

World Skate supports the idea of Skateparks being unique in design thus enhancing progress and creativity of Skateboarding. For this reason World Skate will not release any official Skatepark Designs for the Olympic competitions.

Instead, World Skate will disclose criteria and examples enabling Skatepark designers to create Skateparks matching the Olympic standard.
