This year's competition is back at Big Bay again and promises to be wilder, higher, bigger and faster than ever before.

With all 12 of the top competitors from 2013 returning - including Ruben Lenten, Sam Light and Jesse Richman - alongside eight more from an online video competition and four hand-picked wild cards, there's a truly global field of top class athletes.

The riders set off in threes and fours, competing head-to-head to see who can go bigger and more extreme. The lowest scores get eliminated and the winners progress.
