The American Water Ski Association has released a revised 2019 Rule Book (PDF) and Summary of Rule Changes (PDF). The Rule Book contains a revised Jump Ramp Chart along with the rules regarding the settings in Rule 9.16, which the AWSA board of directors approved. The chart aligns with International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation changes. The respective 2019 Regional Water Ski Championships and GOODE Water Ski National Championships will still use the 2018 Ramp Setting Chart, but for all other tournaments the new tolerances are OPTIONAL without the need to change current jump ramps. This will allow AWSA to evaluate whether this will help jumpers at all levels. And the new chart will not force ramp owners to spend money to upgrade since the current ramps are still in tolerance.
