The Game Changing STACT app and the APB World Tour Partner Up In 2018
1/22/2018 – The APB Tour and STACT have been working together to bring the most immersive competition experience to the bodyboarding community. Starting in 2018, Stact will feature the entire APB Tour contests with live results and stats for fans to follow.

“Stact App is a sophisticated yet ultra simple-to-use app that is going to change the game in action sports statistics. It’s sleek look allows you to guide your way through multiple sports and allows you access to your favorite rider down to the smaller details. Something that is going to seriously turn heads!”
Scoring System – Stact is made up of two parts – the fan app and the Stact scoring system for contest organizers. Stact scoring provides scoring for judges, head judge, display for beach announcers, and a digital priority system to simplify the entire process. Stact scoring updates the fan app in real-time giving users access to in-depth heat stats and results instantly. Stact also provides an instant replay system for judges to review waves right after it’s ridden. The video clips will eventually be linked to the scores in the app for athletes, coaches, and fans to watch. The APB has played a major role in helping Stact test their scoring features and optimize the system to where it is today.
“We are very pleased to have been a part of this creation concept with Stact and Stact scoring. Over the past 18 months we have helped the team at Stact to develop and create the first ever statistical data platform for the sport of Bodyboarding and also trial and develop Stact scoring – the action sports live scoring system.”
Bodyboarding Archives – In addition to live results, Stact provides a look into the past with archived events and results. Because of the incredible contribution from Craig Hadden and the APB, archives from 2015, 2016, and, 2017 are currently available and events dating back to 2000 will arrive in later updates. Users will be able to compare results and see rankings from the past 18 years of the APB Tour. Access to this type of information has been difficult to find, but now Stact is making it easy to research past events and world champions.
“I think it’s an amazing initiative. Having this information is something missing in our sport. How to beat the records if you don’t know them?”
Stact Vision – Their vision is to recognize and work with all aspects of competitive action sports, not just the major organizations such as APB Tour. Stact wants all athletes and fans of action sports to have a single destination, creating one great community. They are currently working with APB Tour, Australian Bodyboard Association, Federación Chilena de Bodyboard, Confederação Brasileira de Bodyboarding, and Japan Professional Bodyboarding Association.
“Whether you’re an APB athlete or starting your career in local contests, you deserve to track your progress and have a profile in our app. We want Stact to be a tool that inspires the next generation of top athletes to compete and reach their goals”
