The event organisers will complete a risk assesments on the day, this may include changes to the race track, obstacles and advertised timings, including which day the event is held (Sat / Sun). Provided the track is safe to ride, the event will continue in the event of rain. We recommend taking precautions to waterproof your boards if necessary

We will provide UK mains outlets for attendees to charge phones and boards fed from a 15kVA generator. Onewheels require high currents to charge so please be careful not to overload the outlets and keep extension leads to a minimum for fire safety. You must bring your own charger

Helmet and wrist guards are compulsory when racing and Helmets must be worn at all times when riding a OneWheel, even if just going from your car to your tent. Protective body armour and kneepads are recomended as the track has several obstacles and minimal runoff in places

No, due to UK law, there are no companies offering Onewheel rentals in the UK. You must bring your own board to take part in Shred the Shires.

Any near misses or reports of dangerous piloting will be taken very seriously. See https://register-drones.caa.co.uk/individual for more information.

  • This will be a knock out competition.
  • Each match will be started by playing 1 round of "Rock, Paper, Scissors" to see who will start setting the trick.
  • Competitors will be paired up, they will play a game of "FLOAT" until one player has FLOAT (like SKATE or HORSE), and they will be knocked out of the competition, the other will go through to the next round until we have our final two riders, who will battle it out for first and second place.
  • For 3rd place, the two riders who lost to the riders who made it through to the final will battle it out for 3rd place.
  • There will be no board categories all boards are welcome to compete.
  • Each game of FLOAT will be limited to 20 minutes maximum. Should neither have received FLOAT by this time, the one with the most letters will be knocked out of the competition.
  • Should both riders have the same amount of letters, then it will become sudden death.
  • This will be a no Flight Fins or any other kind of bindings competition. If you have Flight Fins or any other kind of bindings please remove these prior to the competition.
  • Vesc Dark Side will not be considered a trick to make the competition as even as possible. If you are riding Vesc Dark Side, the trick you perform will be considered the same if the other rider is riding the board the correct side up.
  • Remotes for remote tilt are not allowed to be used in this competition.
  • No accessories can be used that are not already attached to the board. This includes any juggling accessories, diablo's or anything of that sort of nature, and may lead to disqualification. If you are unsure please check with staff.
  • A helmet must always be worn at all times during the competition riding on the obstacles.
  • Any kind of picking up your board, and / or running with it, will not be considered a trick and may lead to disqualification.
  • How Does "FLOAT" Work?
    • Each match will be started by playing 1 round of "Rock, Paper, Scissors" to see who will start setting the trick.
    • The first rider will perform a trick. The opponent rider must copy this trick.
    • If the opponent fails to land the trick they receive a letter.
    • This will give the first rider a chance to do another trick that the opponent must land.
    • If the opponent does land it, then no letters will be given out and the opponent then becomes the rider setting the trick.
    • If the rider setting the trick fails to land and the opponent lands it, then the rider setting a trick will receive a letter and the opponent will then select the next trick.
    • The first one to spell FLOAT loses and is knocked out of the competition.
    • A trick is landed / completed if the rider is able to stay on the board and ride off after completing the trick.
    • You may only perform a trick once per round / 1v1 match.
    • Should there be any disagreement to whether a trick is landed then the final word will come down to the volunteers with Onewheel, skateboarding & other board sport backgrounds who are not competing, should there be any disagreement. Their word is final and the organiser or any competitors will not be included in this decision to make it as fair as possible.
  • Disqualification:
    • Should any competitor be rude, aggressive or disagree with the final decision then they may be asked to leave the competition. This is subject to the event runners discretion.
    • The final decision will come down to a selection of volunteers with Onewheel, skateboarding & other board sport backgrounds who are not competing should there be any disagreement. Their word is final and the organiser will not be included in this decision to make it as fair as possible, unless absolutely called for.
