Congratulations to Pavel Baranak and Harry Skomroch who are the official open pairs winners of Beach Styler’s 2018!
It was originally announced the Jake Gauthier and Dave Schiller took first place, with Pavel and Harry coming in second place by a .1 difference. However, after the event concluded, Dave (being the diligent tournament co-director that he is) went back and re-calculated the numbers. This time he did not round the number to tenths (.1), but rather to hundredths (.01). With this new and more precise calculation, the corrected scores are:
Pavel and Harry: 26.48 (1st)
Dave and Jake: 26.42 (2nd)
It’s amazing just how close the scores were! And, Kudos to Dave for going back to double-check the math to ensure the correct results. Pavel and Harry really deserve this win! Congratulations to both of them, and If you’re curious to see how great both these teams (and everyone else) played, check out the video replays here.
Open Pairs – featuring schillz’s custom binary system
[only the top 10, 1-10, difficulty phrase scores are averaged, and execution (.02 point deduction for a drop, .01 point deduction for a bobble or “the”) is deducted from a “perfect” 1 point (instead of 10) and used as a multiplier against an averaged, 5 category, (teamwork, form, flow, vibe and variety), 1-10 point, artistic subtotal, to get an artistic impression score. Add the difficulty to the execution deducted, AI score for a team’s total score]

Beach Styler’s is hosted by Dave and Amy Schiller, on the beach in San Diego, Ca and will take place on Oct 6 – 7. There are several things that make this event stand out. First, the beach wind is almost always perfect. Combine that with a group of locals who are pure wind jammers and you have a shred fest waiting to happen. Then, there’s the event format. It includes a pairs/co-op division, an individual division, an air brushing race, and the famed mob-ob division. This event is a true test of a Freestyler’s skills, and offers some of the best conditions to throw down.
Lori and I will be bringing the gear for a single camera setup. Last time, the bandwidth was limited at the beach, so I can not promise a high quality picture, but we will bring as much of the action as we can. Find out more information at the event’s Facebook Page.
If you won’t be there in person, than I hope to see you online. Watch here.
