Each year, we hold the Annual Grind for Life Awards at The Boardr HQ in Tampa.

The Boardr Global Rankings are the industry's most complete and current ranking system for professional and amateur skateboarding. These rankings are used to determine the rankings specific to GFL Series events. Current standings for GLF Series 2021 are below.

How It Works

The results for each category are calculated as follows:

All events you enter are assigned a point value in The Boardr Global Ranking System. The GFL Awards are calculated in a similar manner, but factor in only GFL events. Your best three placings for the year count towards calculating your GFL Season Ranking.

The final stop of the year is worth double points for Seasons Rankings purposes. Placings at the final stop will also be used to break any ties in the Rankings.

Your age as of the Annual Awards date is used for your age group category. NOTE: for 2021, we don't know the Awards Date yet, so for Rankings purposes, 12/1/21 is being used. This could change.This eliminates complexities with certain skaters advancing to a new age category within the year. All year long, you skate in the age division for the current age you're at, even if you move up in the middle of the year. Then at the end of the year, we use your current age on the Awards date and points to calculate the awards for each age division.

For anyone who enters an Advanced, Adaptive, or Women's Division during the year, they're separated and calculated as a group just for those divisions since there's no age breakdown. Basically, if you enter an Advanced, Adaptive, or Women's division at any time during the year, you're considered to be in that category for the entire year. Because of that, if you're thinking of switching up Divisions, you should do it at the beginning of the year, not in the middle or the end.
