The Springboard Chop is probably one of the most spectacular of all the lumberjack events.  In the Springboard Chop the contestant climbs a nine foot spar pole using only his axe and springboards.  While balancing on his top springboard (a hardwood plank about 5 feet long, 2 inches thick and 8 inches across) the competitor chops about two thirds of the way through the front of block, he then rotates his body in the opposite direction and finishes chopping through from the back side.  Agility and good balance go a long way in this event.
