but i'm dummy thicc
and the clap of my ass cheeks
keeps alerting the guards!


The smith on that thing is absolutely a risk of death move, im just saying if it was that with no "also even if you survive you have to avoid this curb" modifier I could hem and haw over whether O'Grady's all timer kinky rail is better.

I do also love the barley grind directly towards a 90 degree "axe head" of brick wall lmfao. Special mention.

Re: phone talk I think I just won't bring it. Like in the good ol days. Might make me try some harder tricks. I wish I had a cool skate crew to skate with so we could just mind each other's bags. Thanks guys

Gold - Clive Dixon
Silver - O'Grady
Bronze - Sheckler


Nyjahs is probably the actual silver or bronze but whatever he has everything, just go film another part with all your insanity and leave everyone alone lmfao

I think there would be an argument for gold if it wasnt for that curb at the bottom of that thing. What the gently caress.

If you have to bring plywood and screw in a roll-in, then it's no longer a street trick

What about the bungie assist on the 360 over the fence? What about getting up to speed by a car / motorcycle?

I think they're both sort of hmmmmmmm but speed assists bother me less.

Like I'm not really watching vids to see who can push the hardest and if there's a spot that would be loving awesome but there's no great way to run at it, or say it's a real war and the run up is sapping your energy, I'd rather you cheat it.


That being said, I also think what Nyjah did is more acceptable because he was reviving a dead famous spot.

All those tricks were nuts but I love the chill vibes of Robert Neals. I'm sure it took him a lot of tries but when he gets it, it's just so smooth.

The rule is the more ghetto your solution the better. Having a paid team of people building poo poo is booooo. Propping up a grate with your friends board is goooood.

Yeah, but they scored Schecklers down because of the bungie, but happily ignored Nyjahs.

As for using cars/bikes to get speed. Yeah, you do find those on the street . They're also usuaully used for getting crazy speed not just compensating for a short run-up.

My favourite of the lot was Alex Midlers, but also loved the style of Myles Wilard. I wish they had a compilation where they just played the tricks back-to-back, because I still think those two would stand out the most for me.

i wonder what dixon's "technical" trick at hollywood high was. seems like the judges would have scored that higher.

It would be interesting if they gave them all the same spot and 24 hours to film their trick.

I like the format but it'd be better if it was just hammers taken from actual vid parts over the past year. Would be less of a hassle for everyone.
