Title: Battle At The Berrics 5

Seems kind of a dumb concept. I kind of wish they just got all new people this year. Should be some good match ups though.

For people that don't want to watch the video:

- Berra and Koston decide to do teams
- They each pick their own teammates and they will all compete within eachother untill there is one sole winner to represent each side.
- Berra's team thus far: Mike Mo, Shane O'Neill, Chris Cole, Nyjah, Cory Kennedy
- Koston's team: P-Rod, Morgan Smith, Torgy, Ishod

obviously that won't happen because all of the battles you mentioned have both dudes on the same team...

They said each team will play each other and the best 2 from each team, plays each other. So in essense, those battles could happen.

I wasn't there so I'm basically talking out my ass, but I could see how they would want to film a critical trick again if they'd find out the the cameramen were zooming in on someones as crack at the time or whatever.

He probably looks at the berrics the same way most real skaters do. Its a site for frequent web-clips of pros skating a small private park. Nothing more, nothing less. Ill admit berra certainly does seem like he's milking it but at the same time I gotta respect his hustle he puts alot of hard work into that shit and the footage is good. Now I hardly EVER check out the berrics anymore but its a cool way to kill some time & watch some good skateboarding. I seen that shit since day one (literally) and it really is kinda dope how he turned a lil unimportant website into an internet phenomenon, no matter how corny that shit can be sometimes.

I think COTG said it on here. I think alot of us assume people are good on flat since they skate so well on ledges/stairs/whatever but they really aren't. Willow was pretty damn horrible in the last BATB and Lucas wasn't nearly as good as I thought. Even Luan had a hard time with all that kickflip 360 shit but that is cause the trick is almost a standard with people that have a good flat game.

i always wanted to see them do a series where they play SKATE ona flatbar. THAT would yield some interesting footage

There's a video out of Kevin Romar vs. Louie Lopez, and they play skate on a flat bar. Twas pretty interesting. Actually the whole thing was, like, a 3-round contest. First was a stair set/hubba, second was a combo section with a couple of small sets, and I think they did the flat bar for bonus...However hell the order was, it was interesting and fun to watch, and I wish they employ a similar idea at the BATB5, instead of the usual affair.

Would loved to have seen that.  He does switch tres and shit on vert ramps and megas, would be interesting to see how he skates flat.

Has Sheckler ever done anything with the Berrics?  And if not does that make him cooler?  Or is he just busy being paid to tell kids to stay in school or whatever it is that he does.

I'm down for the term berra boarding but I'm pretty sure my friends were playing skate a week before the first batb came out, coulda been the week after tho

Pfft. I heard some old timer at the skatepark say he was playing SKATE with his friends months before batb. Had to ask him, well if you invented this awesome game all by yourself where's the video footage? Where's the brackets painted on the walls? Where's the website? Shut him right the fuck up. Hate it when people try to steal Steve's shine.

no i figured that cause there were alot of dues that i know would never do it on that board but im sure the guy could dominate it and if not it would just be awesome to watch. rodney's just awesome i dont skate like him or even want to but its just so his personality love that guy. but i second hsu he could dominate i had him winning the second one. you ever see those vids of him in his garage just doing crazy flatground haha. he would drop a storm flip too it'd be so tight. you know too that if he was in it he would really want to win like secretly just bust out his old crazyass tricks man i would love that. i just hope they get more creative. they should do weirder stuff like the carroll koston battle where they were doing weird stuff i want that.

late flips in a game of skate are ok, but i'd rather see tricks that the opponent stands a chance of at least getting close to.  if someone did a fakie biggerspin late flip that would be sick but it's just so out of reach for everyone else, like lutzka's fs 360 kickflips.  it's no fun knowing there's no chance the other person will come anywhere close to it.

they need to drop this huge over production and overhype, the early batbs were actually fun to watch and chilled out, these games are such intense, street league-ified 'contests' now. same can be said for the creativity-stifling homogenisation of the 'competitors' as well... lame.

Sebo Walker Trick Tip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfiNnfiPg08#)
id love to see him pull one of these out against someone

Holy shit! I hope circus tricks make a comeback. Skate is way more fun when people just don't do the same ol' stuff.

indeed, this is battle 5. I've seen enough kickflips on flat and stock tricks to last a life time. seeing a stylish stock trick is nice but what else have you pros got? give me some wacky no comply pressure flip late flip or something, something fun and interesting. sketchy or not go nuts go back to 1992. battle at the berrics needs julio de la cruz.  

late flips in a game of skate are ok, but i'd rather see tricks that the opponent stands a chance of at least getting close to.  if someone did a fakie biggerspin late flip that would be sick but it's just so out of reach for everyone else, like lutzka's fs 360 kickflips.  it's no fun knowing there's no chance the other person will come anywhere close to it.

Theres been 4 battles worth of tricks everyone can get close to, isn't that enough? someone SHOULD throw fakie biggerspin late flips and the like and spice the games up and win this thing. this isn't a game of "fair" its a game of "skate" with a hefty prize at the end at the end I might add.  

Could've guessed that decenzo would lose, but I'm tired of watching Shane O'neill's impossibles. they don't wrap.

pretty sure he was doing a 360 shove.

as a long time fan of impossibles I fucking hate this. it was clearly a 360 shove. if you can't see the difference between shanes 360 shove and decenzos attempt at an impossible you are blind.

Post by: ivegotlevitation on February 18, 2012, 05:11:10 PM
it looked like he's trying to do impossibles but they're not working properly. There's been other games of skate at the Berrics when people are obviously trying impossibles and they do the same thing. believe me, I know what a fucking impossible is supposed to look like.

After a 5th time around, this format is getting tired. Here is my suggestion on how to spice things up:
-Have the skaters play a round of skate, like normal.
-Once one skater wins, bring out an Element brand (TM) high ollie bar
-Start the bar high and go backwards in height
-Whoever can't ollie it when the other skater can is eliminated
That'll make it wayyy better.

Manny is surprisingly good at flatground. If he was playing against anyone else but PJ he probably would've had a better chance at winning. I thought it was going to be an easy game for PJ. Half way through the game when they were both on K I was routing for Manny to win. I love PJ but 90 percent of the time I'm always rooting for the underdog to win. Also, it seems like PJ was a bit off that game. Missed some simple tricks on offense and defense that he would normally have.

I might be wrong but I feel like Reda is trying to boost his own career infront of the camera. Playing the nice sincere guy just doesn't work.

PJ looked like he was on another planet during those pre-post game interviews.
Him missing the switch back heel twice was a surprise.

I might be reading into this too much but have you noticed how Eric ignores the crap about God having mercy when he reads the rules? I always thought that bit of the script was lame.

i think theo's back heel scraped the ground on that front 180 heelflip. mike mo is a monster on flat so it doesnt really surprise me that he won however isnt it a lil unfair having eric as a judge when its supposed to be team berra vs team koston? i mean, he didnt really have any suspect calls other than that front heel MAYBE, but still.

WHY DID THEOTIS GET A RE DO ON THAT LAST FS HEEL?

HE LANEDED IT AND DIDNT TOUCH HIS HANDS OR FEET





WHY THE FUCK IS KOSTON THE REF?  IT SHOULD BE SOMEONE ELSE






THIS SHIT IS SO FUCKING STUPID
I agree with you! That was a mis-call on that front heel for sure, and if they're competing against each other then why would Sir Koston be a ref at all? I think the concept is pretty cool this time though.

indeed it was like the score to lethal weapon or a sleazy 80's exploitation cop porn drama. Now that would have sweet.

battle at the berrics has well and truly lost its steam. I don't know how long i've been saying it but they need to lose the rules, anything goes! I honestly dont care who wins this time. and i really dont care which team wins. I think i'm watching out of habit more than anything.

I like Marquise a lot, but that motherfucker should be able to do a bs bigspin properly. Personally, I would have counted that particular one as it wasn't really sliding around like your typical cheater ones, but unpopped bigspins didn't fly since before Berrics rules. I expected a lot more out of him, but it's clear he didn't give a flying fuck.

Also, Saxman made this game almost worth the watch. Hating on him is futile.

that would actually be tight. shit has gotten really dry. even if it's 2 people playing that i actually give a shit about (very rare). during the first 2 i would know each game that was coming out & when. i'd stay up later then i'd planned just to watch games. blah blah blah. now i forget that shit is even going on till it's over or close to being over & then go back and watch a few games before i get bored & realize why i forgot about them. hopefully this one will be better.

one time i saw some kids playing LINES instead of SKATE. there was a ledge on one side and a flatbar on the other.

they would do a trick on the ledge, a flatground trick, and a trick on the flatbar.

that would be a good way to change it up. im sure if some 14 years olds in venice can do it, the top pros/ams can too.

There used to be some segment in the Berrics where two guys went head to head trying to get a certain trick on the hardrail. Usually it took each one like 8 tries to get it, so a whole game of SKATE would probably be a bit on the boring side...

Weirdo tricks (as requested ever since the first BATB) could be fun, some game might go down with just 5 stupid no-comply variations but, thinking back to the Mike V vs Chris Cole match, I'm sure some of the guys could hang.

you're talking about the one trick battle royals. Obstacle SKATE is much faster paced than having 2 guys try to land a single difficult trick before the other one. the trick consistency has to be more at a more contest run level. Flatground tricks are cool but not every good skater is a master at flip tricks, there are other things that should be showcased as well. imagine a tournament between guys who kill mini-ramps like daewon, cody mcentire, etc., playing S.K.A.T.E. on quarterpipe setting various tricks they can do 1st try...Tell me that wouldnt be sick!

St. Joe, dude?  Here's a funny ass story that has nothing to do with The Berrics.  But a lot to do with St. Joe (which is where I always describe as "where you go to give up."  Sorry, man!)

I had a homie come in town back when I first lived there in the early 00s and he wanted to do a serious night out.  We went to The Velvet Dog over by Rainbow Blvd at 3pm and didn't leave until 2am.  Our fucking tab was about $450 because my homie, Andy, ran into a girl's night out and bought a couple rounds like an idiot.  Anyway, we weren't done so we went to the Isle of Capri Casino.  I hadn't even picked by blackjack table when Andy comes up and says, "Yo, we gotta hit it.  I just lost my pants."  I asked him how much and he just looked at me and held up four fingers.  He lost FOUR bills in about 20 minutes.  Ridiculous.  Anyway, we leave and I am going to find us a hotel because it's about 4am and we somehow wound up over in the Bottoms by all those industrial looking places.  I am drunk driving like an idiot and telling Andy that this is exactly where Nicholson became the Joker in the OG Batman movie.  The Axis Chemical Plant!  Haha!  I decide I am too drunk and I drive back to the casino and we pass out.  I wake up to Andy moving my feet off the dash which he tells me he is doing because this sketchy looking dude is looking like he's gonna rob us.  I wake up later.  It's daylight out now and Andy is driving with the windows down and he's drinking a can of beer and smoking a cigarette and singing some classic rock song.  I fall back asleep, and the last thing I remember is staggering into a hotel room.  I wake up and I am all panicky because I don't know where I am.  I go wander around and I don't recognize shit so I ask the front desk. 

"You're in St. Joseph, MO, sir."  St. Joe is about an hour and a half from where I was living.  Fucking Andy.  I don't even know how/why he went there and neither does he.  But seriously, that town sucks!

But back to the actual game, Nyjah never struck me as the flatground king.  He probably has the staple tricks down, but if someone throws in some crazy 360 variations I dunno if he'll make it.  Whatever, good game, liked Romar's 360's

Maybe it's the way he dresses.  He was rocking some pretty shiny chains and rings.  A giant playboy bunny shirt.  A Supra / Mountain Dew hat with the tag still on it.  I thought it was funny how he held his mountain dew so that the logo can be seen hahaha

I dunno, you can tell he was being pretty friendly with Tommy the whole game, so to me he didn't do anything wrong.

But I will say it again, he dresses way too "fresh" when he's skateboarding.  Probably could have won without all that metal weighing him down.

Having kooky corporate sponsors in order to make as much money as possible is fine. I get it. I meant that, from a strictly aesthetic standpoint, applying a mountain dew patch to one's hat just doesn't look cool. That's just my opinion. I fully get it, though, especially if some corporate higher-up gave him a directive to do so. Gotta pay the bills, like you said. And if some dude who works for PepsiCo or whatever offers some kind of monetary incentive to drink Mountain Dew (label out) on camera, do that too. Gotta be a team player, just like any job.

Mountain Dew patch on snapback is not cool though, i know we live in T.E.T.'s (as Berra likes to say) but c'mon bro

Seriously dude? Having corporate sponsors is not selling out, it just means more money in your pocket so you can pay the bills. When will people realize this? I'm currently writing music and it's not for the money, it's for the love. But I'd have to be really stupid to hope for a career in music in which I don't make any money and live a life of poverty...that just simply makes no sense.

Would you sign with a shitty label if they were the first to offer you a paycheck?

That's not even the point. Bottom line is skateboarders and all other athletes/artists are entitled to make money for being good at what they do. How they make the money is THEIR business, not yours and doesn't speak less of their character unless it's against their integrity. Maybe it simply doesn't bother him to be sponsored by Pepsi and they offer a lot of money. Would you ditch an opportunity like that just because it's a big corporation?

Is that hat the first new thing he has ever owned?  Is that why he keeps the tags on?

If you have been off your mommys teet for any time at all, youd think differently about what people do to pay their bills. Give me a few grand, hell a few hundred or whatever every time I sip a Dew Ha on camera and you better believe Im gonna be all hopped up on Mountain Dew.

My favorite part of Reda's pre-game chat with Keelan: the disconnect between Reda's handshake and Keelan daps.

Even though I moderately enjoy his skating, I agree there are cringe-worthy aspects of public persona; among them: personal websites, desperately trying to resurrect that 90s trend where you keep the tags on, and the Tiger Woods-like elbow sink he does after he gets his first letter on Fynn.

Seriously dude? Having corporate sponsors is not selling out, it just means more money in your pocket so you can pay the bills. When will people realize this? I'm currently writing music and it's not for the money, it's for the love. But I'd have to be really stupid to hope for a career in music in which I don't make any money and live a life of poverty...that just simply makes no sense.

Would you sign with a shitty label if they were the first to offer you a paycheck?

That's not even the point. Bottom line is skateboarders and all other athletes/artists are entitled to make money for being good at what they do. How they make the money is THEIR business, not yours and doesn't speak less of their character unless it's against their integrity. Maybe it simply doesn't bother him to be sponsored by Pepsi and they offer a lot of money. Would you ditch an opportunity like that just because it's a big corporation?

no; how they make THEIR money is through OUR business, and that makes how they they make their money OUR business.

also on a general note- this isn't fucking nascar- one garment = one sponsor

Yes.

If I were in the position to be paid by a giant corporation, then I'm good enough to pull an offer (a smaller one, obviously) from a company that I actually respected, and wanted to be associated with. I would absolutely pass on the six figures for a smaller check to help support and promote something I would have been a part of anyway, without them paying me for it. Would you wear Ku Klux Klan gear for a big enough paycheck? That's all you're really saying with the "Who cares what they stand for, get the money" approach. People have different morals. Some people find giant corporations evil. Other people don't. Lets be honest, though, a lot of the guys in skateboarding who have giant sponsors aren't doing it because they love the product, or support how Nike shoes are made. They just want the check.

But that's just me, and some people.

Maybe Keelan is on the opposite side of the fence. Maybe he doesn't have a problem with giant corporations, and he's actually really fucking psyched on Mountain Dew. If he doesn't have a problem with these companies, why the fuck wouldn't he take a giant check from them?

Sorry/drunk rant.

I completely understand where you're coming from on this and your last paragraph pretty much states what I was trying to say. It's no one's fucking business but his who he chooses to associate with. I also think that a lot of people in this thread don't seem to get that making money is an essential part to being a skateboarder for a living....how are you going to continue to do it if you can't afford gas to travel and food to eat.

listen man, if you are a pro skateboarder you are a PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE. sponsorships are where most of your income comes from. some people would rather drive a Benz or be able to put there family ina nice big house. its important to still have fun with the shit and enjoy what you do but at the end of the day everything you do with your career cant be 100% "for the love". its easy to say you wouldnt turn the money down, but there are (a few) wealthy pros who make much more than your average upper-middle class person. if you wanna make the $$$ like that by simply skateboarding all day you gotta make a few sacrifices. some of yall might look at a target or red bull sponsor as lame & not authentic, but to the person signing that contract they might feel like its a good deal given there own personal circumstances. people are gonna do what they feel is best for them. i say as long as you keep skating and putting out footage, sign with whatever sponsors you want. you're a professional athlete, getting endorsement deals & the perks that come along with it is an easy way to come up.

listen man, if you are a pro skateboarder you are a PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE. sponsorships are where most of your income comes from.

But most "PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE"s are judged in a very quantifiable way.  If you can score a certain amount of points or run a certain time or help your team win no one is going to talk shit on your gear, music selection, corporate endorsements, etc. 

Skateboarding is a bit different.  The skater is basically marketing them self.  No one cares about contests, video parts and photos are king.  People on SLAP joke on skaters all the time for having kooky sponsors.  A lot of skaters I respect have never really had to go the corporate route and are very successful (Mike C, Rickk, Ed, Reynolds). 

I also completely understand the other side.  If I was saving for the future, had a family to feed, etc. and Wal-Mart came knocking, I'd probably listen to what they had to say.  When you take that money you're telling the world that's what you're into.  I couldn't imagine Guy's Mouse part or Gonz in Video Days with them rocking a neon Monster shirt and a Target hat in every clip.

i see what you're saying, and there are ways to do good for yourself outside of sponsorships but if all you wanna do is skate all day (not manage a brand, etc) sponsorships are the way to go. look at P-Rod for example. dude has the corporate sponsor HOOK UP. mtn dew remodeled his private park, target gives him free gift cards to buy whatever he wants, AT&T gives em free cell phone service...i would not mind telling the world that thats what im into, and all he has to do is skate & goto a few business meetings. id say thats a good deal. again, once the shit becomes your actual job you gon have to look at things a bit differently. would yall rather work a 9-5 making decent money while tryna squeeze in time to skate or would you rather skate all day with a few extra logos on you to be a millionaire?  theres the middle ground where most pro's are at but personally if i had the opportunity id take the sponsorship. that is, if i agreed with the contract. i wouldnt just pick up ANY sponsorship that throws money my way but if it was a good deal for me & my situation overall id prolly take it.

Arizona sucks. I mean, it's ok if you're into just drinking sugar water, but there isn't a single tea leaf in the tea, and the rest is just corn syrup. Super overrated. People think they're getting a bargain by getting a tall can for a dollar. Jokes on you, bro, it's just water and sugar.


On the topic of sponsorships, I'll let most kooky sponsorships slide because:

a) I think being a pro skater is one of the hardest jobs in sports. Think of how many people are in the NBA, MLB, NFL etc. and now look how many pro skaters there are. Now look how many pro skaters make more than 100k. All the "real" athletes start out at a few hundred grand. minimum. I think skaters earn their pay and then some

b) It sucks to think that our favorite pros can be out of the industry and working shitty jobs just to keep the lights on. Wasn't Heath delivering pizza at one point? Most of these guys don't go to college, and a good number of them don't even finish high school. But they found something they love and they're talented at. If they want to leach some corporate asshole's money just by putting a patch on their hat, I say fuck it, and get that money.

brisk is hardly tea  ::)


Feel free to complete blow me off and do you're own thing - really, just do what you want - but the fact you drink a lot of sugary soft drinks just means you have an addiction to sugar.

You should really try cutting back. Try brewing your own tea. Before I got my single-serve thing, I would just boil a couple cups of water. Nowadays, I drink about 2-3 cups of tea a day. The only things I drink besides tea are almond milk and water.

You can remove sooo much sugar from your diet, and you'll be thankful in the long run

They have ito en stuff at chinese markets actually.

For 4 or 5 dollars you can get a big bottle of tea, I think it's a 2 liter bottle.

Regardless, they're pretty standard teas that you can brew yourself.  You can buy cheap boxes of green / oolong tea bags and brew them in a big pot.  I make the tea strong so when i pour it over ice it dilutes itself.  I leave it in a pitcher and when it's cold it's practically the same as buying it.  

Honestly though, if you like brisk and arizona, i don't know if you'll like regular unsweetened tea.  I offer my roommates tea and coffee all the time but they never want any because there's no sugar haha

Me enjoying Brisk and Arizona doesn't mean I'm addicted to sugar and I probably don't even drink it as much as you think. I've had one Arizona and one Brisk this whole month. I don't think they classify as soft drinks either. Y'all on some tea elitism type shit haha.

They don't really taste like tea to me, but I'm sure there's *some remnants of tea haha.  But yeah, I know.  I like to have energy drinks and shit once in a while, but in the long run, you just feel less shitty when you're drinking stuff without so much sugar and random chemicals.

Anyways, there's really nothing special about that japanese tea.  It's just convenient is all.  If I'm out skating if i had to choose to buy something from the store, I usually go for that, or just drink water from a fountain.

your words: "all I really drink is tea nowadays"

can you blame me for thinking you drink it frequently?

With that said, there is definitely room for elitism in tea. Especially when it's tea versus a water-corn syrup hybrid.

Not hating on you; just sayin'

Arizona sucks. I mean, it's ok if you're into just drinking sugar water, but there isn't a single tea leaf in the tea, and the rest is just corn syrup. Super overrated. People think they're getting a bargain by getting a tall can for a dollar. Jokes on you, bro, it's just water and sugar.


On the topic of sponsorships, I'll let most kooky sponsorships slide because:

a) I think being a pro skater is one of the hardest jobs in sports. Think of how many people are in the NBA, MLB, NFL etc. and now look how many pro skaters there are. Now look how many pro skaters make more than 100k. All the "real" athletes start out at a few hundred grand. minimum. I think skaters earn their pay and then some

b) It sucks to think that our favorite pros can be out of the industry and working shitty jobs just to keep the lights on. Wasn't Heath delivering pizza at one point? Most of these guys don't go to college, and a good number of them don't even finish high school. But they found something they love and they're talented at. If they want to leach some corporate asshole's money just by putting a patch on their hat, I say fuck it, and get that money.

Okay 1) There is probably at least SOME tea in there

But 2) regardless of the fact, there are probably way more amounts of artificial sugar and random chemicals to negate the health benefits of tea haha.  

If you like AZ tea, that's cool, but it's far from the ideal tea haha

EDIT: I forget what splenda is made of, but artificial sweeteners such as aspartame are known to make you hungry and cause cancer.  It's not gonna kill you drink one bottle, but if your diet consists of drinking diet sodas all the time, there's a big chance you'll end up with cancer and/or just plain unhealthy

EDIT : Once you get used to drinking good tea, or even just mediocre tea self-brewed, you can't go back to Arizona tea mainly because it's so full of sugar that it doesn't really taste like "tea" anymore.  But you know, it's whatever, I think Arizona makes okay drinks, I just wouldn't call it tea, in the same way that you can't really consider lactose free milk as just "milk"

Well think of it this way, would you still consider something "tea" if it only contained 1% tea?  Obviously AZ tea isn't 1% tea but where you draw the line is really up to your discretion.  To me, if you're going to mix tea with all this other crap, I wouldn't be able to call it "tea" but I can consider it a sugary drink that "contains tea."  But the drink as a whole won't be "tea" to me.

Trust me, you'll quench your thirst better with just straight tea.  Please don't think of me as a health nut though, this is coming from the guy who practically worships welch's grape soda...

http://www.drinktradewinds.com/products/diet-green-tea-with-honey/ (http://www.drinktradewinds.com/products/diet-green-tea-with-honey/)

Ingredients:
Real brewed tea (filtered water, green tea leaves), honey, citric acid, sucralose, sunnett (acesulfame potassium).



How bout Sweet Leaf tea. Let's see:

http://www.sweetleaftea.com/flavors/the+original+sweet+tea (http://www.sweetleaftea.com/flavors/the+original+sweet+tea)

Ingredients: FILTERED WATER, ORGANIC CANE SUGAR, ORGANIC BLACK TEA, AND CITRIC ACID.


Point is: if there is real tea in there, it will say. I'm really sorry that some of you think you're actually drinking tea - which Arizona most certainly is not. Filtered water and sugar doesn't make it tea. Once again, it's TEA LEAVES that make it tea.

breh Arizona makes doesnt always make tea. all the watermelon, grape, strawberry kiwi type shit are fruit flavored DRINKS. Nobodys calling that shit "real" tea. THAT shit is most likely just water & sugar but their green tea and anything else that actually says TEA is fairly legit, as far as bottled tea can go. nobody's expecting the same 100% herbal shit you get from the chinese store when they pick up an arizona, therefore quit getting butthurt when people say that they like it.

I posted the ingredients for Arizona green tea already. There was no tea in there.

Look up like one post with my post about Sweet Leaf and Tradewinds bottled teas - they actually contain real tea.

So, no, Arizona is not fairly legit.

And I'm not butthurt that people like it. I'm more or less baffled that people thought - and in your case, still do think - there was actual tea in Arizona, which there clearly is not (at least not out of any of the varieties that I looked up), and it IS just in fact sugar and water.

hm, now that I look back at the AZ green tea picture that was posted, the label said something along the lines of "Premium Brewed Green Tea using" : then a bunch of ingredients that isn't actually tea.  So basically they can call the end product "Green Tea" no matter what the ingredients actually are.

I think it's a similar situation to products that are labeled as "all natural," where it's just used as a means to sell their product rather than to actually inform the buyer of what's really in their food, because I know most "all natural" products contain things that are certainly not natural.  Same goes for "FDA approved" products.  I forget how it works, but when it comes down to it, you can always sway the FDA to bend the rules with money / politics.

Once again, it's not like AZ tea is going to kill you, but don't be surprised when people tell you that companies are keeping you in the dark about their products.  C.R.E.A.M.

Dog you looked up some shit on the web, and I have an actual jug in my possession. Did you not see the picture I posted? 100% natural tea w/ no preservatives or artficial flavors. Like I said not everything arizona puts out is a mucho mango fruit cocktail in a tall boy. My shit got the geishas on it nigga, we all natural over here. Lemme say it one more time just so you understand, NOT ALL ARIZONA DRINKS ARE THE SAME. The little article you found within 30 seconds on bing was clearly only talking about one kind of arizona drink, which were most likely the gas station fruit punch type shit. what I usually buy comes ina jug and only uses a few natural flavors like real honey, which im sure wasn't in your internet ingredients list. So yes bitch, I am drinking tea. I drink all that other arizona shit too tho. Watermelon & strawberry kiwi the best flavors IMO. Grape & mango are the shit as well

ahahah quote of the fucking day

But about the "100% natural tea" claim.
Practically anything can be labeled as "natural" or "all natural" as long as nothing is synthetic aka man made.  All the things you find in an Arizona green tea may be found in nature, but not all of it is found in green tea naturally.  

And like I said before, I doubt there's any regulation as to what can/can't be labeled "tea."  As long as the Arizona tea company wants to label their end product as "tea," they can (Even if none of the end product contains tea truly brewed from tea leaves).  Although to be honest I'm not too sure myself, but judging by the label, it truly seems that the arizona green tea you have is not actually green tea, but rather something they call "green tea"

I completely disagree that AZ tea is "as legit as bottled tea can get," but you know, it doesn't really matter.  I don't blame you for not really giving a shit, since you're probably not that into tea like I am.   If you like it, you like it.  Even though you're wrong  ;)

Give me your address.

I will personally mail you a box of bottled teas that use actual tea. Ya know, like, water that's been heated up with actual tea leaves in it?

Really. I'm sure you'll find quite quickly that AZ is not the pinnacle of bottled teas...


Note:

When a product says 'All Natural', yes, that means none of it is man-made. Same with USDA certified organic - there is a strict set of guidelines; there can be no bending of the rules.

However, natural doesn't mean it's good for you. Sugar is natural. And while natural cane sugar is indeed superior to, say, splenda, it is still not advised to overindulge in sugar.

So, sk8dood, you have water, natural sugar-type substance, maybe some citric acid and honey...and the AZ marketing team decides to call it tea. I guess it sells better than calling it "drink". Whatever anyone wants to call it, there is no way in hell someone with even a handful of braincells will call it "tea".

I'm not your mom, and I truthfully don't care what you drink. I just merely advise you to broaden your horizons and maybe drink something that your body may enjoy a little more.

To Arizona / the FDA, it's not considered "bending the rules," but to me, it's bending the rules of ethics somewhat.  But of course, in the business world...fuck ethics haha

At the same time though, I don't blame people for believing that AZ tea is truly real tea.  labels can be confusing to people who don't have the energy to really do any research on it.

I think victor posted a link to sweet leaf earlier.  They make some pretty good bottle tea, although I like freshly brewed tea the best  ;D

The term "all natural" is mostly bullshit, the definition is in no way strict or even clearly defined. The last revamped official definition of the term for the industry was set back in the 80's. It really just rules out synthetics and food coloring. High fructose corn syrup is FDA "all natural" approved, despite the fact it is created in a lab.

"The two standard high-fructose corn syrups sold today are 42 percent or 55 percent, meaning that 42 percent or 55 percent of the glucose has been chemically altered. The most commonly used in commercial production today is 42 percent and measures about 120 on the sweetness scale.?

Monsanto says it's good, so it must be!

High fructose corn syrup isn't any worse than 'regular' sugar.

Most likely, but at the same time, how much of that shit is in most iced teas?  I don't put anything in my tea, but that's just my preference.  I think the problem with bottled tea is you don't really get an idea of what's in what you drink.  With self brewed tea, you can see for yourself how much sweetener you're putting into your tea.  I'm not some loony conspiracy theorist, but I pretty much distrust anything processed (even though I'll indulge in them)

It reminds me of when I tried to make milk coffee.  There are these canned japanese ones that I wanted to mimic.  It kind of grossed me out how much sugar I had to add just to get close to the level of sweetness the canned milk coffee had.

If you go back to the picture though, you have to pay attention to the wording:

Ingredients: Premium brewed Green Tea USING...[ingredients which do not include tea itself].

I'm pretty sure the wording there is vague on purpose so to someone who takes a quick glance at it, it may seem like it is real green tea, but to me, the label translates to

"Ingredients: A drink we arbitrarily call 'green tea' using a mixture of ingredients that mimics the taste and look of green tea."

Think of it this way: if it were truly green tea, what would be the harm in adding one more ingredient onto the list?  tea/tea leaves aren't on there because legally they can't if there isn't any in there.  So they use a convenient loophole by labeling the end product as green tea.  Why?  Because legally they're allowed to. 

By the way, even if there are antioxidants in bottle tea, there is significantly less in there than actual tea (I'm almost positive the amount of antioxidants in AZ tea are negligible.  They only have enough to be able to put that on the label).

DO THEY USE TEA LEAVES WHEN THEY BREW THE TEA?
Yes, we use tea leaves to brew the tea.


So unless they are blatantly lying on their website, they do brew with tea leaves.

They do, however, use HFCS in all of their products, as well as splenda and sucralose (artificial sweetener),  sucralose especially in their diet green tea.

So it is not "all natural". And only a little more healthy than drinking a coke. But it is tea.

I would rather have real sugar, but that's not a big deal since I don't drink sugary stuff that often anymore.

And yeah, if it's on their website, they wouldn't lie (I would assume haha)
Although by taste, I don't know how much of the AZ tea is made up of tea brewed from leaves.
You can technically brew a tiny bit of water with one leaf of green tea and be able to say "yes, we brew our tea using tea leaves" (although I doubt they would go through all that trouble just to fuck with us haha). 

Point is, no matter what, their green tea does not really taste like green tea to me.  If you dilute a teaspoon of gatorade with 2 gallons of water, is it still really gatorade?

DO THEY USE TEA LEAVES WHEN THEY BREW THE TEA?
Yes, we use tea leaves to brew the tea.



So unless they are blatantly lying on their website, they do brew with tea leaves.

They do, however, use HFCS in all of their products, as well as splenda and sucralose (artificial sweetener),  sucralose especially in their diet green tea.

So it is not "all natural". And only a little more healthy than drinking a coke. But it is tea.

Discuss.

fucking THANK YOU man. ayo vic! didnt you say its just sugar water & corn syrup? that they really dont use tea leaves? and that everything you said about it was true? awwwww ok then...thats what the fuck i thought.  ahhhhh the sweet taste of a SLAP victory! almost better than my diet Arizona green tea, but not quite  ;)

there is no comparison to the sweetness of Arizona tea (it's too sweet haha)

But yes, this is why I never deny the possibility of being wrong unless I'm absolutely sure I'm right.  Because being proven you're wrong is the worst feeling  :P

Arizona sucks. I mean, it's ok if you're into just drinking sugar water, but there isn't a single tea leaf in the tea, and the rest is just corn syrup. Super overrated. People think they're getting a bargain by getting a tall can for a dollar. Jokes on you, bro, it's just water and sugar.


On the topic of sponsorships, I'll let most kooky sponsorships slide because:

a) I think being a pro skater is one of the hardest jobs in sports. Think of how many people are in the NBA, MLB, NFL etc. and now look how many pro skaters there are. Now look how many pro skaters make more than 100k. All the "real" athletes start out at a few hundred grand. minimum. I think skaters earn their pay and then some

b) It sucks to think that our favorite pros can be out of the industry and working shitty jobs just to keep the lights on. Wasn't Heath delivering pizza at one point? Most of these guys don't go to college, and a good number of them don't even finish high school. But they found something they love and they're talented at. If they want to leach some corporate asshole's money just by putting a patch on their hat, I say fuck it, and get that money.

"Ingredients: premium brewed green tea using filtered water"

^As seen on a can of AZ Green Tea with ginseng and honey

I love when people make claims with no factual evidence to support them!



i have a bottle of that same tea in my hands right now "100% natural tea, no preservatives, no artificial color or flavor. sweetened with splenda"

how much you wanna bet victor'll say some shit like "oh you believe everything on a label?" and expect us to believe him & his hater-aid influenced statements.

"Premium brewed green tea using filtered water, high fructose corn syrup, honey, citric acid, natural flavors, ginseng extract, ascorbic acid."

Come on, dudes...really? You can't read a label? No evidence? The evidence is right in front of your face.

THERE'S NO TEA IN THERE

and you think because high fructose corn syrup is natural, that it's healthy? You are seriously bonkers. B-a-n-a-n-a-n-a-n-a-n-a-s

you probably think splenda is healthy, too  ::)

Before you try to put me on blast, you should really educate yourself

PLEASE just shut the fuck up for once

How do you know there's no tea in it? Did you go down to the Arizona plant and inspect all of their ingredients?

I'm not saying that your recommendation isn't respected, but what if I just like AZ?

I know its not a health product by any means, or the greatest tea on the market, but pound for pound, it has a value that is hard to match.

Some AZ products do contain VYDAMINZ, and while the sugar isn't good for you, it isn't ALL bad.

Sippin' on a MuchoMango, which has 50% vitamin C per serving(might be 25, can't remember) is much better than downing a can of soda that has zero nutritional value.

I don't want to spend too much time dropping jewels in here, but I stay sipping on the AZ rx energy herbal tonic, and that joint contains 100% vydaminn C per serving, 25% vydamin E, and 25% vydamin A per serving.

It does have a considerable amount of caffeine in it, at 30mg per 8 oz, but caffeine in moderation isn't going to destroy you, and the beneficial elements outweigh the negative aspects.

SIP IT!

honestly, don't let the "healthy" aspects of most food / drink products lure you into buying it.  Know what you consume, but for the most part, eat what satisfies you.  A lot of people want to have it all: healthy foods with the same taste as the junk they want to eat.  So companies capitalize on this by creating products where the labels legally over exaggerate  the health benefits of their product, so I wouldn't be too sure about the "benefits outweighing the negatives" claim either.  Just because there are vitamins in a 200 calorie juice from concentrate doesn't make it healthy.

But like I said, it really only matters to the extent that you care about.  I'm pretty sure AZ tea is okay once in a while, and is most likely more nutritious than a soda haha

Maybe I was wrong about Arizona not containing tea, but can you blame me?

Other (more authentic) bottled tea companies list tea leaves right on the ingredient list, and many other bottled teas do not contain any actual tea and can still legally be called "tea".

Pardon me for not taking everything at face value.


On the real, though, you sound like a 15-year-old. You also sound like you sucked off Sk8dood and somehow inherited some of his ebonics and speech tendencies. When he does it, it's kind of sad, but at least it feels semi-genuine. When you do it, you just sound like a dick rider.

And I think it goes without saying that I know way more about tea than you, seeing as how I actually drink tea that requires you heat up some water, versus opening the tab on a can.

And another thing, I think it's really sad that people who are health-conscious get labeled as "food/health nazis". What the shit is that? It's bad to care about what you eat and drink? You get criticized for reading labels? Some people have their shit so ass-backwards it's not even funny. And if you're going to talk about how your precious 'tea' has vitamin C in it, hey, how about you tell me what vitamin C actually does for your body. If you don't use google, I bet you have no idea. Not to mention the fact that vitamin C is one of the easiest vitamins to get, and you don't need to down 30+ grams of sugar to get it.

I don't think pivoting your tricks and popping your tricks are mutually exclusive events...

But maybe you can start a petition so that pivots aren't allowed if your opponent didn't pivot?  ::)

DO THEY USE TEA LEAVES WHEN THEY BREW THE TEA?
Yes, we use tea leaves to brew the tea.


So unless they are blatantly lying on their website, they do brew with tea leaves.

They do, however, use HFCS in all of their products, as well as splenda and sucralose (artificial sweetener), �sucralose especially in their diet green tea.

So it is not "all natural". And only a little more healthy than drinking a coke. But it is tea.

Discuss.

WORD THE FUCK UP!

FUCK VICTOR! THAT KID IS A LITTLE BITCH WITH ZERO SWAGG (OR TEA SIPPIN' KNOWLEDGE!)

PO' A JUGG!

Maybe I was wrong about Arizona not containing tea, but can you blame me?

Other (more authentic) bottled tea companies list tea leaves right on the ingredient list, and many other bottled teas do not contain any actual tea and can still legally be called "tea".

Pardon me for not taking everything at face value.


On the real, though, you sound like a 15-year-old. You also sound like you sucked off Sk8dood and somehow inherited some of his ebonics and speech tendencies. When he does it, it's kind of sad, but at least it feels semi-genuine. When you do it, you just sound like a dick rider.

And I think it goes without saying that I know way more about tea than you, seeing as how I actually drink tea that requires you heat up some water, versus opening the tab on a can.

And another thing, I think it's really sad that people who are health-conscious get labeled as "food/health nazis". What the shit is that? It's bad to care about what you eat and drink? You get criticized for reading labels? Some people have their shit so ass-backwards it's not even funny. And if you're going to talk about how your precious 'tea' has vitamin C in it, hey, how about you tell me what vitamin C actually does for your body. If you don't use google, I bet you have no idea. Not to mention the fact that vitamin C is one of the easiest vitamins to get, and you don't need to down 30+ grams of sugar to get it.

Ain't nobody tryna hear that sorry ass attempt at scraping back your nonexistant dignity. You just mad cuz you salty as fuck so you wanna try to bring somebody else down with you. Naw son, the only person who looks like an arrogant prick proved wrong is you. Just take the L and walk away...

eh?
I wasn't going to get into this one, but with my other option being talking about BATB I'm gonna have to go with Victor and Jim here. Yes, the fact that SOME types of AZ beverages contain SOME amount of tea is likely true, but your "victory" is purely semantic SkateDood. All I can say is this, human nutrition is a very complicated field of study, and you have demonstrated that you posses very little understanding of it. If you don't care and wish to carry on drinking AZ's products, and insist on calling them teas, you have definitely earned the right to do so, although you will still sound like an idiot to the billions of people on earth who know what tea actually is.

Edit: Could have worded that better, but didn't want to get carried away. You get the point.

Yeah. Awful.


If they're really that serious about it, just put the text of the rules below the videos on the website. Literally no one wants to hear them, most skateboarders can't even read well enough to get through all of them, and it's just the biggest waste of time to make hundreds of games of skate videos with the same rules read through every time.

If you're tying to compromise the recital of the rules, why would you do so in a way that only we could see it? Even though I'm sure it's not necessary, it obviously makes more sense for the participants to hear the rules than for us to. The fact that they film it is its own thing.

amen brother. then they would have to call in our military to help protect their asses from the onslaught of awesomeness ripping through their faggy towns/cities and laying much waste to their faggy cuntrymen.

- you nervous?
- if you win the ro-sham-bo, what's your first trick
- good luck

post-game

- what happened?

It's cool that they put new fresh faces in brackets this time but all that means is a really short game because dudes like Matt Miller, Evan Smith, Boo Johnson, Marquise Henry etc. get completely skunked. It's not those dudes aren't good, obviously they fucking rip, but they don't stand a chance against these veteran BATB champs who have robotic-like consistency. It would be sick if the next BATB there was no Shane O'neil or Chris Cole etc. so that we could see some other dudes mess around on flat and get 10 G's.

damn malto always has the longst games, but hes always had bad luck of facing crazy good opponent while their having a perfect day. anyway, after seeing the mcclung match and then this match its safe to say trent is one of the strongest people on erics team and tho im not really convinced hes gonna beat pj, he could easily give him a run for his money and maybe even shut him out if pjs havin a bad day. cory kennedy vs nyjah is gona be hilarious. you could tell ronnie was pissed when they said he was reffin cuz he could have easily taken a berrics championship himself.

ps im a new member here i been reading for a long time, and just decided to register. im 24, been skating since i was ab 14 and live in wilmington nc/ aka east bound and down film location/chet childress home/ finucan form one in a million is from here too ive known him for awhile. not good enuf to ever get sponsored but i do have some intermediate tricks. i cant tre flip good at all, maybe in a game of skate. but i got frontside flips on lock, reg front 360s (just learned), reg front bigspin and back bigspin, switch flip switch front shove, can switch back 180 up a 3 stair but still cant tre flip good at all. its frustrating seeing people who barely skate do them, i think my posture just goes against any natural ability to do them

Glad Creager got through.

I was thinking before the game started, how come Koston is sitting so pretty? In my eyes Creager is as big a legend as Koston. It's fucked up how the industry drives things... Either way. Rip it up for the old guys Creager.

Stoked Ronnie took it, especially after the surgery. I remembered it half way through the game, "Why is Ronnie landing so sketchy? This isn't the Creager I know and love, oh wait, right, surgery." Considering he nailed it after being out so long makes it even sweeter. Hoping he's in top form for the Mike Mo game, he's gonna need to be on top of that shit.

You can kinda tell from the footage but moose was creeping and morgan was 2 push minimum on most tricks, I'd be going slow to but it was weird in real life. Morgan is a beast and will probably win this shit again!

Wait for the semi finals with a possible Creager vs Smith game, it's like Terminator vs T2.

Morgan is too good. I rooting for him to win. That being said, I love how all the new dudes they picked to be in BATB have been eliminated first round. The semi-finals are always the exact same: Mo, O Neill, Cole, P Rod, whoever else. That's why I love to see Morgan win this shit because he doesn't have the stature as those dudes yet but he brings the fiercest competition. Go Morgan!

god steve berra is annoying. heres my loyal worker whos having his last day, i wont let him read the rules, ill just introduce him and then stand awkwardly in front of him while i read them.
also ishod wearing shorts was pretty baller, im pretty sure hes one of the only people whove played a berrics game in shorts. i dunno ab yall but its so much harder to commit to flip tricks for me with shorts on.
also i love how steve makes it a point in the beginning to pronounce ishods name correctly"eh-shod" and at the end hes like the winner is ISHO..."ehshod!" steve should really stay away from improv in front of the camera because he is way more awkward than most people. (his text yoself with albert nyberg was hands down the most uncomfortable clip hes ever produced)

Who gives a shit if he's a good dude. He has to have on the worst styles off all time.  He's unbearable.  Terrible trick selection  ugly clothes and hair to top it off.
I realized a few years ago that he could do literally anything on a skateboard but it looked horrid but since RTS came out I think it's gotten alot better. His hair does remind me of a shitty elementary school kid but I'm in it for his skating, not his hair.

I'm kind of glad he lost though because I want PJ to take the whole thing. He deserves it. He's been in the final four almost every time.

The style in which he skates is unique. I can understand that some people may not like it, but the dude a skate machine, and I happen to dig his style.

I can't believe I'm asking about this stupid shit, but how old are those twins, and how'd they get from slumin to where they are now?
Do they have jobs?  The same job?  They share a salary?   

apparently they are paralegals and share the same position/salary. i hear they do literally everything together. i was told that if they are skating and one of them stops to get a drink then the other goes with. if one of them smokes a cigarette the other one does. if somebody has to take a piss, so does his brother. weird shit!

i wonder what would happen if someone kidnapped just one of them

Nah... Berra just gave Nyjah an audit before the game real quick.  Cory didn't stand a chance with those thetans all over him.

Watched it twice.  had to rewind a bit each time.

Even though trent didn't get a letter on PJ, I swear he came the closest to beating him yet.  I even came closer to beating him mentally at his own strat.

Alot of these games get to who can land 5 insane tricks first, this one was who has the most endurance and broad skill set.  It was crazy to see Trent put PJ on defense like that, and vice versa.

Holy shit, I'm watching it again.

My favorite match so far. Even though I pretty much knew PJ was going to win near the end when Trent had T and PJ still had no letters at all, there were still a bunch of surprises that came out of that game that made it an entertaining match, like the unexpected fakie 540 flip land and the nollie 540 bigflip land. Trent is better at flat than I thought.

Didn't P-rod beat PJin BATB2 with a nollie late flip? I was thinking that when Trent went for it. You could even see this look in PJs eyes like "naw,I got that man. I ain't missing one of those ever again."

Stoked. I hope he gets his revenge on P-Rod. Where ever it goes from here is going to interesting on Koston's side. If he gets P-Rod he could go against Morgan or Torie and either one of those battles will be fucked. To be honest though, I'm pulling for Morgan taking Torie.

Holy fuck. PJ on a good day is unbeatable. Nobody could beat him like that, he was totally on point. How on Earth did that kid, or any other skateboarder in the contest have a chance? He did like 5 million different tricks, from traditional to crazy, and PJ had no problem with any of them. Trent was skating well, but if you only miss one out of 20 tricks and your opponent misses zero out of 20, eventually you are going down.

it's like a movie, man.

We establish who the main characters are (PJ and Trent), the the tension is built with the basic tricks, then the climax comes and PJ gets the gold. Followed by the denouement with the post-game interviews.

Hell, even an all AM BATB would be dope.


This. And. Let them do no complies and what not, I want to see some crazy ass tricks.

I love that those twins try to show off like super rich, drive around a white land rover with white rims, but in tampa they had to stay at the howard johnson, shittiest hotel ever.

Maybe that's because the Howard Johnson is the hotel where all the people looking for crazy Tampa stories stay at.

Slightly off topic but, I remember back at the start of the year, on the CA Skateparks site, they mentioned in a blogpost about redoing the berrics. I'm kind of hoping that some of this is prefilmed, and at the end they present a new park design.

They did that with BATB 2 or something maybe... they had the finals be at the new park.  That was really rad and I'd love to see that again.  Hopefully something with some flow this time.

Mike Mo is a beast. Last two tricks, I honestly could not tell what he just did.

And than in the interview, he said its done by him on a daily basis. Guess when you land every other flip frist try, stuff gets boring and you come up with this.

malto vs cole or kennedy would be tightt

It's subjective, man. For a lot of people, massive pop isn't the only deciding factor for good "style". Personally, I'm not super into Torey's skating, but I can certainly see why many people are. I can also see why many people aren't. I'm sure you've been on the internet for more than a day so surely you must realize your personal opinion isn't always the same as everyone else.

From what I remember, basically the game got setup to be rigged against Alex from the get-go (right after filming a 3-day Bangin! clip) and on the day he was flying out.

Still sad that there isn't any Mizurov or Luan, they killed it last year

yea mizurov had the best chance to win, he was pwning morgan smith till the fluke happened. wish he didn't bad talk the almighty steve berra
What is this bad talk you speak of?

From what I remember, basically the game got setup to be rigged against Alex from the get-go (right after filming a 3-day Bangin! clip) and on the day he was flying out. Also, Mizurov said that while he took a shower after the game, they had Morgan re-film his last trick to make it look like he stomped it.

If I remember correctly, he told everyone that Morgan refilmed a trick and stuff.

Dear god , so much shit goes on there at the berrics . Re filming tricks  , bribing ppl to not do skate vids , first try fridays my ass , fake shit , ppl getting banned

Why do people put up with steve ? and while koston comes off abit weird sometimes , why is he on that band wagon ?
What? who did they bribe to not do a vid?

umm yeah, pretty much. 

Carlin is tight, no way to hate on that guy or his style (SD represent). 

I was hyped he threw out the A-Team Gershon Mosely ad reference, which was better than that game.  Funny that chris cole won that A-Team contest back in the day.

I know!! why is this so hard! arrrggghh everything else at the berrics, all the controversy and crap whatever I dont care that much. but impossibles are my favorite trick and it kills me they dont get the credit they deserve at the berrics.

anyway. i'm kinda bored, i think i'm watching these games out of habit more than anything else. I would have liked carlin to win because he has far more interesting tricks on flat and weird interesting tricks make the games more fun as far as i'm concerned. Although shanes sketchy switch flip was pretty sick.

This has got to be a troll.  Get the fuck outta here.  I shot a sequence of Morgan winning a best trick contest in Toronto years ago with a switch tre flip manny off a kicker over a super skinny and tall manny pad.  He was super consistent, gnarly, could've knocked the doors off most pros even back then.  He's super modest and a cool dude, deserves everything he gets.  Even his winning cab heel flip against PJ was pretty high.  Go kill yourself.

Hope Mo's gonna take it this year. Mike Mo vs PJ would be a pretty good final.

Not that Morgan guy again.


But you want Mike Mo to win again?

Yes. I love watching Mike Mo skate flat.

Stoked on Mike Mo's win, definitely thought it would be a shut out though.

Did anyone else cringe a little bit when David Loy blew the whistle in Yoon's ear? I try to not dislike the guy, but you could tell he was trying too hard to be funny and/or cool.

Damn, what a good game. Had me on the edge of my seat towards the end. Stoked that Ishod won. I like Morgan just as much as the next guy, but I was rooting for Ishod for the sake of seeing someone different in the finals this time. How many times have we all seen Mike Mo, Shane or PJ in the finals? And Morgan was in the finals last year, so it's good to have one new person in the finals this time. That and plus I almost always cheer for the underdog.
 I knew Ishod was good at flat, but not THAT good. To beat Morgan at all is one hell of a feat. If he's on his game for the finals he might just be giving PJ a run for his cash.

Good game. Got pretty close there too, it could've been anyone's game. Mike Mo must really want to win this year because he just went straight for the circus tricks. Usually he'll run through all of the basics first before pulling out the weird stuff. Here's to hoping for a PJ Vs Mike Mo finals.
And also, like the posters above me are saying, what the hell was up with that weird three shuv front foot trick? That sure as hell was not a "front foot impossible" like he was saying. Looked like a strange yo-three shuv to me if anything. That shit confused the hell out of me.

Finals are going to be a draw. Eric and Berra are going to have a dispute and settle it by playing skate themselves. Koston's going to get him to S-K-A-T easily but will mess up on the last trick. Berra will focus all his power to summon Xenu and unleash some of the craziest trick ever imaginable. Berra will then make a comeback part....

fuck that "front foot impossible going the other way" or whatever.
Not a fan of shane, but he deserved it.

Yeah, what the fuck.  The fact that he would claim it as any kind of impossible is bullshit.  Also, I hate how three shuvs and impossibles have become interchangeable in these games.  Anyway, looking forward to seeing PJ play even though we know the outcome.

PJ vs Mo should be an epic game.
Mo might just take it if he goes first and goes straight for the throat again with the circus tricks, but only if he is on his game and doesn't miss any of them, because if he misses it'll probably be a while before PJ misses a trick and he gets to set again. Still though, Mo's got some crazy technical tricks. I've yet to see someone who could land his late pressure flip or that impossible late flip trick that he does.

First games up. Mike Mo is crazy. I'm not too sure about that 360 shuvit looking thing that he said was a front foot impossible but inside...I guess that might make sense but it looked like a 3 shuv to me?

 yeah wtf was that trick, looked like a yo 3 shove and he calls it a trick nobody has ever done before

my friend has them for a while now,you use your front foot but spin it the way of a normal impossible.

In the Mike Mo vs. Shane game all Mo did was try his weird ass tricks. Mo couldn't really land shit the entire game. Those tricks he got Shane on were after about 15 minutes of trying them and giving the turn over to Shane then waiting for Shane to mess up. He was getting pretty bummed because every time he went for a trick he fucked up. Everyone thought he was going to lose to Shane.

Also the PJ vs. Ishod game..... When Ishod did the switch FS Biggerspin PJ kept doing doing fs 360 shuvs and then turning afterwards, this happened about 4 times and then Austin I believe was the ref? I can't remember...But whoever it was said it counted, so Ishod tried a trick and messed up and then PJ did a nollie hardflip. Then Berra and Koston paused the game and made them rewind back to the switch fs biggerspin and had PJ choose if he wanted to try it one more time or just take a letter. He said he would just take the letter and didn't care but Koston talked him into just trying it and then that's when he bailed it. Then they said that it was Ishods turn again and that PJ doing the nollie hardflip didn't count. Then Ishod did like 2 tricks and bailed on a bs360 kickflip and then PJ won it.

Side note: Ishod was high as fuck the whole time, Berra was bummed. haha.

a little weird ? 


Anyways PJ rocks . Thought Mike Mo was gonna win since PJ was doing "normal " tricks while Mo was doing " unusual " but PJ has some fucking skills and some tricks up his sleeve !


what the fuck was the game ( I think that was him , not sure ) doing there ?  and why was he on the microphone ?  who wants to hear somebody who has no clue who ppl are or what tricks say " yeah " after everytrick ?

Sigh of relief as someone grabbed the mic back or told him that shit is whack in our books.  Is this what skateboarding has become?

Can you imagine a skater as on stage hype-man at a rap concert!??!  Maybe Gentry or J. Nova, but still stock and cred. would immediately drop in every true skater's eyes, and they would never be given the chance to do it by any industry respected rapper anyways... but with the reverse it actually builds their cred. and mass appeal, and what's worse, the industry actively invites and welcomes them to do it.  Pro skaters & industry moguls sucking rapper's dicks, fuckin' sad.

I remember the game had an interview a couple of years back (2009? maybe?) in an issue of Thrasher or Transworld about him growing up skating a Hosoi board or something. I think they called him a kook in the same issue haha

goddamn, that shit was so gay i had to stop lurking and rant about it. it was awesome when tony hawk introduced the rules, but the game? i felt embarrassed to be involved with skateboarding... thank fuck somebody took the mic so we didn't have to hear his retarded commentary the whole time, pretty sure after the "sick shit mo!!!!!" my jaw just dropped from sheer embarrassment for skateboarding. seriously hope berra gets run over by a bus for that dumb move.

the only good thing besides mild entertainment from that whole thing was that pj won it, and gave negative zero fucks doing so. the team berra vs. koston idea was gay in the first place, and seemed like a big nike vs. dc fuckfest. definitely glad pj came through and shit all over it.

PJ!!!!  that would have been so fucking lame if mike mo won. he started both of his battles with a late varial flip, what kinda shit is that?  I know it's just a game, but for real, pretty weak.  in the mo vs shane oneill one, he does a 360 shove it and calls it a "one foot impossible but inside".
pj was just bangin out standard tricks perfectly, whenever mo got a turn he'd do some circus shit like he knew he was on the ropes and was trying to hang on.  in summation:

What's up with Shane looking big all of the sudden? Obviously he isn't, but in all the recent footage/pictures of him he looks chunky. Guessing it's the clothes:

Since they need to have a theme nowadays, whats the theme for next batb?

East vs West?

Shirts vs Skins?

Lactose inolerance vs bee allergi?

Personally I would prefer a drunk vs sober themed Batb.

any trick goes. no complys, bonelesses, handplants, late flip pressure mcdizzle flips. whatever.

failing that up and comers vs veterans does sound pretty good. up and comers do the cool flip tricks the kids are doing now days and veterans do the sketchy whatevers of the early 90's.
