Wasn't there a dude who won the Joe's part of one of the BATB's and then he wasn't in the actually Pros vs Joes? He did a bunch of dorky tricks.

Is he invited?

A lot of those guys never even got to the finals like Blake, Miles , Louie Lopez and Malto. I like Donovon being on there though. I actually hope at least that game isn't taken too serious. Just let them fuck around and start tossing double hardflips and what not.

I guess they matched up certain skaters right away to get some views. Luan and Tory should be a good match as well as Cole and Booze and Moose and PJ. Would be cool if they just played skate with just 3 people in the building rather than making it a spectacle. I bet it would calm the nerves of a lot of people.

Who is Michael Sommer?

Yeah in the video Berra spins a lottery cage and pulls names out, with the exception of some of the rematches everyone wants to see like Busenitz vs Christopher Cobra Haole.

Norwegian skater that made it to the finals last time around. Good style.

Floats tricks like he weighs nothing. End of this battle was great:

Berra started pulling names out and drawing them up on the board right away, but three match-ups in I think he realised he needed to 'curate' the brackets for the reason you mentioned and reverted to pulling out all the names, and then placing them on the board.

wait, moose is still alive?

This.

I rewatched this game just now and realized that it's from BATB 2 and Dennis is wearing his pro model.  It's crazy how long that shoe has been out.

Yeah but they stuck to "normal" tricks.

Can ishod hang with triple flips and shit??? I doubt he's ever done that shit, but if anyone could pull it off I guess it would be ishod

My guess is Shane O'Neill. He's firing on all cylinders. Whoever plays him I hope you have 5 good impossible variations because that's seems to be the only trick he cannot do

This BATB is already off to a better start than the last one with no pre/post match shit.

I'll come out and say I don't mind Cody Cepeda's skating at all.

That Miles and Ishod match got me stoked to go skate. They're both so good. Interesting to the movement of how they set up their feet and pop/flick so quickly and spread their legs to catch the board so perfectly bolts. As a skater who grew up with parking lots and tarmacadam, it's always crazy to see flips with perfect form like that. Inspiring, even.

So I guess Miles can't really front bigspin? I wouldn't have guessed that, but a lot of top tech pros sometimes have that one movement that they can't manage. Reminds me of Moose vs PJ, all of Moose's letters were some kind of inward heel variation (the four stances and a fakie inward big heel, I think).

Yeah he does, he's from some crazy rust belt part of Michigan i think, he and all his friends skate this plaza in one of the downtowns that has everything. I'm guessing it was something built when the auto industry was killing it and the city had crazy tax base and now that city is totally dead, and no one seems to care that they skate this spot.

After seeing his 100 kickflips for CCS and now this, I think Tom has the prettiest kickflips in skateboarding

Edit: I know the people in BATB don't take it that seriously (except for PJ where it seems BATB is like the olympics in his mind, and even though it's still more of a contest than a homie game, but is just me or is it a dick move to set the same trick your opponent just missed e.g. tom missing a switch flip and Youness setting one right after?

I was thinking the same thing.   But thats just part of the game I guess.  If it wasn't a game of skate and if he was just trying to show him up for no reason than yeah it would be kinda lame.

I see it the other way, it's a friendly competitor's move. Asta tried a switch flip b/c he knows he can do one. He missed it. Youness (and others who do the same thing) did it to give Asta another chance to land the trick he knows he can do. A lot of us can land dialed tricks second try. And possibly, by redoing the switch flip, it makes it easier to do other related tricks.

Also anyone who does this might just copy what happened because it's easier than thinking of a new trick.

Buttery Ass BATB hype:

It probably won't happen, but I REALLY want Donovan to whoop Malto's ass to put him up against Louie, then either P-Rod or Chris Colbourn after that.

Title: Re: BATB 10
Post by: Noble Experiment on April 05, 2017, 08:06:38 PM
I can imagine their match will probably be set up for entertainment purposes, like Donovans rematch with koston from all those years back or the match P-Rod played against Carlos Ribeiro. If they do a non fixed match it'll probably just end up sucking and being one sided, especially if malto goes first. Donovan has all those weird circus tricks here and there but seems to not have a lot of the more standard tricks too well at all. I can picture Sean just doing five switch or nollie flip variations in a row and blanking him out.

A lot of companies invested in Malto and they want/need their moneys worth. Push him back in front of everyone's eyes so they can sell those dunks and boards and coconuts and whatever else. The kid didn't take talking-to-the-camera-lessons (I made that up but he has child actor vibes) for nothing. Who cares what he skates like now or if anybody gives a shit about him, they have a marketing strategy in place and that machine doesn't stop.

I remember this match being a lot more boring, but it was actually decent.
Benny Fairfax was such a different skater back then. Can't imagine him doing half of these tricks in a Palace edit now.

They're awkward because he has to toe the official Berrics "this is the best of the best" line while knowing it's bullshit. I only saw the first vid, in which Roberts and Mike Mo first enthused for several minutes about how all of the skaters in this were equally good, you really can't make any predictions, any of them could win it - and then proceeded to make exactly the same predictions/brackets until the finals.

Surprised Morgan kept his glasses on. Cairo Foster said they're an "occupational hazard." Are contacts safer? I don't know.

I've also fanned out on him, saw him murdering Ashbridges early in the morning when no one else was there and at Shred Central years ago. At the Loft as well, he's got miniramp skills. Always been amazing. That's my contribution to Slap's excessive Torontonian content.

It's only cold here in the winter(unless you go waaa?y north)

But yeah, skating in winter sucks. Falling hurts 10x worse, flip tricks are super hard because how tight your trucks get

Konston problems in batb are...

Although he loves the camera, he doesn't like the pressure his career has put on him. He's on a pedestal career wise.

So, this leads to problem #numbers2, he dorks around to take off the pressure so people think he's joking around.

#numbers3. He doesn't skate enough. He's still fully capable of bangin' out basic flatground tricks and dork tricks if he skates.

#numbers4, it's a fact skaters today are just waaay more fuckingawesome, and he'd lose regardless

If you're OG steezy with your style you psych out the other person to miss their trick. #facts. This isn't just "going fast" and "popping high" it's just straight style. Like when you see the trick and go "oHhhh shhhhitttt" in front of your computer, even though it was just a backside 180 heelflip.  Also, I'm waiting to see someone do a Gazelle Spin in BATB I don't remember anyone ever doing one.

Nothing against his formidable legacy, at all.

Just wondering what the cut off is for "not taking it seriously" and just riding that legacy into the ground, instead of stepping aside for the young bucks. Koston always has to have his kooked out face all over shit he doesn't seem to give a fuck about, not to mention the fact that he perpetuates the rumor that Steve Berra is a person.

i dont think any of them are taking this serious. Carlos is a good example

Not taking it serious is prob. better than the contrary (taking it too serious). But really... The "taking it serious or not" conversation in the first place wouldn't exist at all if skating really belonged anywhere near the Olympics.

I'm sure there's a separate thread for this, but I actually didn't know skating is going to be in the 2020 Olympics until recently. I saw people joking about it in videos but I thought it was a joke. The fact that it's real is pretty weak. Shout out to everyone else who didn't know it's a real thing until right now.  ;D

Berra and Skin have always been big homies and i'm sure they still are, so i'm sure Berra can get anything he wants. If you look at any old Berra photos most of them were shot by Skin.

Tween market could do that but damned if I know how you'd get accurate web traffic stats on this. What's Thrashers average YouTube views versus say the Remive kooks? I do know that when I went to the west end yesterday I saw six Thrasher tees in 20 minutes  on people that have definitely never gripped a board (and probably don't know Thrasher has a website).

Currently Revive > Thrasher > The Berrics on YouTube stats alone, but Thrasher + The Berrics have their own major sites with their own video players that get content before it's put on YT. According to Alexa (website ranking), Thrasher has the larger traffic of the two:

When they were tied they looked pissed and I thought we'd be treated to a Raven/Clint fake fight. And they seemed to really stress at times.

Also Donovan barely did any of those crazy tricks from his lil shit talk video. He should have just done that shit... He only did a few.

But since it's Berrics I don't really care. Maybe I'm infested with Thetans.

the park has changed locations and it's bigger with each incarnation. This was inevitable considering that the park is the heart of the website's content. To keep content new while just still being in a single park, they had to open it up to a larger number of skaters.

Is it though? Mikey Taylor has always been there all the time.

Taylor rides for SOVRN so it makes sense that he maintains a consistent presence there. So yeah, you see a few consistent faces but a lot of new ones. Do they all "feel" the same? Not to me but no two people have the same eye when it comes to judging skaters.

People hate on trent just because he his a McClung.
All his tricks were properly popped, flicked and caught, great clean style. Moose skated slow, a lot sloppier and was lucky as hell.
He bends his back leg weird on nollie tricks.

Yes. His legs go weird, he sticks his ass out worse than Koston and just generally doesn't look good. I don't give a fuck if he's a McClung or not.

That 360 was proper though, but generally his style is not enjoyable at all to me.

Damn, what a bummer. I'm pretty indifferent on the McClungs but Moose skates slow as shit (let's get a two-push minimum going, shall we?) and his flip tricks always look so floppy to me. Taking someone out with a double flip is a pretty weak move, too.

Other than GAY I think you're probably the only guy here noticing how the skaters arse look (not that's any problem with it  :-*), but yeah I can see the wierd knee bend he does, but it works so fuck it.
I still think he has a amazing board control and some sick ledge skating.

moose skates like he left his bloard outside in the rain, along with the rest of him.
a solid inch between where diego's beanie ends and his ears begin. worst trend.
when did all these girls start coming to the berrics, mostly rhetorical.
mcclung rocking a nice pair of skate adv's. or campus vulc 2s, why is this only 720p.

It was definitely fake. Think Malto really can focus a brand new board first go?

No. And no one does a manual in a game of skate. What is this amateur hour?  If anything they should allow old school tricks. No comply's... eh.
But maybe I'm just bitter because I almost ate sh*t trying a no comply not that long ago.

I think I saw some "old school tricks" allowed game of skate between...I think Mike Vallely vs Chris Cole? It was a boring 3 minutes of streetplant variations.
funny, that's still my fav match. I like it better when both contestants have to get out of their comfort zones

That's why the first few BATBs were so rad, it had way less of a "please our corporate overlords" feel and way more of a "dudes who are hanging out at the park" vibe. Anyone remember being surprised at how well Erik Ellington did in the first one?

Seeing how Ellington is one of the greatest skaters of all time, not surprised he would do well in BATB

When you and your friends play skate, is there a huge crowd with barriers and you all take it so very seriously?
No... because that would be completely ridiculous. You sound like someone who wants to play skate in the BATB but you haven't been invited yet. I bet if you were invited and won afterwards you'd be like "That was tight!"

Post by: DannyDee on April 17, 2017, 02:41:13 AM
the park has changed locations and it's bigger with each incarnation. This was inevitable considering that the park is the heart of the website's content. To keep content new while just still being in a single park, they had to open it up to a larger number of skaters. People who hang out at the park are still producing most of the content, it's just a different crew than the earlier days. That's to be expected.

Is it though? Mikey Taylor has always been there all the time. I feel like it's expanded as new skaters show up but they all have the same feel so it's felt basically the same.  But I've also stopped going to the Berrics except for BATB and if someone posts a video for someone I care about that was there.
Seems most of the earlier years a lot of the guys hanging out there were Crailtap dudes, the early BATB mostly had Girl and Chocolate guys. Seems almost all those guys have been chilling at Biebel's park for the last while. Some other guys who you used to always see there haven't done anything there in ages, such as Cory Kennedy (has he been there since he showed up drunk to the Billy Marks game?).

As for the battles. The Malto thing was way overproduced and cheesy. I doubt either them actually went on that long a run without a bail, just by watching Malto's other games. Louie Lopez is sick. Moose skates way too slow compared to most of the others.

As for the Crowds, I actually think its a bit stupid for the finals, and actually fucks with the guys who skate fast as it limits their space.

I think they've really exhausted this format. Compared to eg the mano a mano or the slides and grinds competitions this is so predictable because everybody always does the same tricks in this. In the miniramp or on a ledge even two amazing skaters can have totally different bags of tricks with very little overlap. On flatground I think sth as simple as allowing no-complies would make a huge difference, just so that different types of skating can compete against each other. As it is it's getting boring indeed.

Waiting for someone to do a Fingerflip in one of these games. That's not really a "grab" is it? Maybe it is I don't know. How about a 360 body var. Or how about primo slide. Damn I'm old. Noticing a lot of people are doing backside big spin and then switch frontside big spin. Also surprised how good all these skaters are. It's like switch varial heel, no problem... pretty ridiculous.

Really insightful shit doc. A fingerflip is a grab because of how you have to grab your board to do it.

Case could be made  you don't really grab the board, you just shove it with your fingers.  Watching old games I enjoy how there was less etiquette. If you watch billy marks play mike mo in BATB1 they do all sorts of what could be considered "cheap" tricks against one another (billy does a heelflip late underflip? or something). Another game that surprised me was Peter ramondetta vs. Mike mo. Ramondetta does a front-shove late flip and does some sort of impossible variation I'm not sure what it was. Or Albert Nyberg vs PJ Ladd, he does those Ollie sex changes. Waiting for someone to do something that's not another Nollie flip or bigspin kickflip or Nollie Hardflip. Is it possible to do a fakie big spin but rotate your body the opposite way as the baord? like reverse half-cab.

Yup.  Had the same experience except he just did a kickflip over something.  I think it was a Red Bull demo back when PJ, Getz, and Maldonado were on.  At least you got the privilege to see him do TWO tricks in person.

pj's dad taught him well 'never fight a man uglier than you, he has less to loose' and zered's bald so why chance it?

═ have a somewhat similar but a really positive experience. When I was 14, PJ skated in this rather small contest in Finland. He would not skate the course at all expect for his contest runs, he just sat in the corner. I think he skated for a total of 3-5 minutes the whole weekend. He landed pretty much everything first try, nollie flipped in to a quarterpipe and won the contest. I thing it was just before the WHL - video came out and he was not well known yet. It was a magical experience for my teenage brain.

Similar episode. I was fortunate enough to see him at an Element demo a couple of years before WHL and he fucking destroyed the place.

Except for Sewa on his team....that dude wanted to win, he always wants to win.



Sewa was thinking, Lets put some circus tricks on this game.

Most PJ footage since WHL. Seems like he's just as good as he ever was. What a great game, if only all of them were like this.

You may be right, if he actually released a street part we may know for sure.

Check the pre-game where Chris asks PJ about The Nine Club:
BATB X | Before The Battle: PJ Ladd vs. Billy Marks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRuaFg01eJs#)
He's more outgoing than usual and not entirely sheepish about the offer. Would be crazy if he did it.

I'm fine with PJ being so silimar to Penny. Adds even more to his "mysterious" ways.

I'm also extremely partial towards PJ, in my head he is still in my top 5 skaters of all time, more footage or not. When he did his latest street trick (nosegrind up the ledge), I was all "Yepp, still in my top 5".

Post by: Mr.Jenkins on May 01, 2017, 02:22:03 AM
? have a somewhat similar but a really positive experience. When I was 14, PJ skated in this rather small contest in Finland. He would not skate the course at all expect for his contest runs, he just sat in the corner. I think he skated for a total of 3-5 minutes the whole weekend. He landed pretty much everything first try, nollie flipped in to a quarterpipe and won the contest. I thing it was just before the WHL - video came out and he was not well known yet. It was a magical experience for my teenage brain.


Your tapping into my own PJ story here. I entered the same contest, the Pro Skate that was in Hartwall arena, i think?

It was pretty crazy how he didn't touch the course at all - he skated flat behind the course the whole time, dropped in and won. Had no idea who he was, I think I had seen an element ad with him before that, but nothing else.

Here's the thing though, me and my friend connected somehow with him, and went street skating in Helsinki with him a whole day, just us three. Skated the black marble ledges that is outside a museum or something? And a few other spots. He was friendly but a bit quiet.

A week or so after I was at a WESC shop in Stockholm and they just got a new video, the WHL video.. I put it in and got blown away. Nobody believed me when I told them I just had skated with that guy.

Thats like one of my all-time favorite skate hing to happen to me. Im happy it happen before the video though, after it would have just been us star strucked basically.

I like how Felipe is that asshole that does the trick you just tried and missed. Glad PJ gave him a taste of his own medicine. Felipe is one of the worst dudes.
dont care how talent he is, cant stand em.

 
i'm no felipe fan either but that was probably out of good fun because its a fun game of skate and they travel around together being on PlanB having fun together skating!

Oddly, I hope it's just that. I remember on KOTR there was a random aside where Mike Sinclair kind of touched on Billy having issues with gambling addiction, and in a later episode going through a divorce while doing the show. Mike kind of used it though, by paying for scratch tickets to get Billy to do a challenge in the book he kind of took advantage of Billy. I hope it's really just Billy being sick or injured last minute though, and if not I hope legit friends are looking out for him right now.

Berra is an idiot for thinking he can recreate the magic that game gave off the first time around. What made their original game so good in the first place was the surprise factor that came with it; Cole was at the top of his game and considered one of the better game of skate/flatground skaters at the time so everyone was expecting  Cole to just completely destroy Dennis, no one expected Dennis to put up such a fight. The fact that Dennis exceeded everyone's expectations and got Chris to T and there was a moment where you genuinely weren't sure who was gonna win was what made the game so great to begin with. There was absolutely NO WAY that the berrics were gonna be able to recreate that magic, especially with how crazy the games of skate have gotten since then and how burnt out people have gotten on these. What made for impressive games back then don't really make for impressive games now because people have higher expectations now on what a good game should be since there's been so many of these; dudes can have a game where they match each other on cab flips and triple flips and shit and people will still think it was just a mediocre game, when back in the day if that were to happen it would automatically be considered a good game.

I agree with everything you said.  I would also like to add that back when BATB was new, we didn't really know what everyone's flat ground game was like, so every game was a surprise and made it exciting.  That's why I was excited for BATB 9 because of new faces, even though it turned out kinda lame.

Damn Joslin is so damn consistent and Diego did a great job hangin in there.

It almost seemed like he had too much pop for the finesse required for a nollie backside heelflip revert like Joslin did. I would have loved to see a well popped, perfectly spun nollie 360 heel though.

That was the most bizarre shit. On regular heelflips Diego had his foot like a kick flip and couldn't do them but switch he did them like nothing hanging his heel off like you normally would. His frontside 360 was a amazing. Could have done it over a hydrant on flat like nothing.

It's a game of skate idiot.

When has sewa stepped to a rail or switch flipped a huge stairset many pros couldn't Ollie?

It's obvious, if Shane wanted to learn hardflip lateflip reverts or some retarded shit he could do it in a day.

If Sewa wins ro sham bo, he can beat Shane. He just has to do all that hardflip revert and late flips that he has on lock. I would think that is the only way to beat Shane is the circus tricks.

He dropped Beware of the Sasquatch before filming heavily filming for Pretty Sweet. Both parts had stuff in them on rails and sets that haven't been seen since. For example Cory's ender of the frontside half-cab to front feeble on a rail.

Shane is probably the best skater in the world, but Cory is up there when he wants to get tech.  Unfortunately, he doesn't appear to have had the interest since filming for pretty sweet.

I want Shane to win, as he and PJ are probably the best and most consistent before resorting to circus tricks.

Yep. Shane has circus tricks too, he just won't bust them out until 20+ tricks are done.

If he really gave a shit im positive he could do switch Ollie late flips etc.

Also, sewas hardflip tricks are bullshit. I mean he lands them yeah,  but it's a full 180 pivot after landing. At least do half the turn in the air ffs

I do my fs flips by doing a 90 degree kickflip and then landing and pivoting the last 90 degrees, sometimes i get lazy and even do just a regular kickflip with a quick 180 degree pivot. I remember one time I was playing skate with an acquaintance and I had him at T and I busted out an fs flip and he got so angry and went on a mini tirade about how that wasn't even an official fs flip because of the pivot. I smiled, looked at him and said to him what I usually say to people who complain about that shit, "ok, fine, i guess it's not an fs flip then, so just do a kickflip 180 pivot instead then".  He got even more frustrated because he knew I got him, so he tried two, missed, got even more frustrated, and lost the game. Moral of the story? A landed trick is a landed trick. If you're gonna complain about a trick being too reverted on the rotation and being overly "cheaty" then just do yours reverted too, that's just how they set it. Only time it should matter is when someone sets a trick a certain way on offense and the person tries to do it differently on defense.

I've heard it sometimes called "an imposter" where it's basically a 3 shove where your back foot kind of stays on the grip, but theres really no wrap around or anything. To be fair, most people have one or the other, not both, and they're very, very similar, the line between them blurs, so it's all good.

That was a great game, best one so far.

I didn't see it as an impossible, it was the back-footed three shove. And they called it in the YouTube comments, even Paul was shaking his head at his attempt. Maybe all pros should wear Gopros and film themselves, that way if an impossible's properly wrapped and you see the graphic, then you can count it. That should be a rule they read out in great length before every match as each pro is wearing a camera on their head. I'll start a petition.

It makes me sound old, but I seriously don't know how people keep up with youtube streams and podcasts when each are getting to be multiple hours long.

An hour is 60 minutes.

Multiple hours is much greater than 39 minutes

It's assuming you subscribe to more than the berrics stream / more than one podcast or assuming there are multiple updates per week.

Thank you for confirming the multiple hours > 39 minutes though.

A lot of this long form content is pretty easy to digest if you just let it play in the background. I feel like it's not unreasonable to take care of stuff online or just dick around for an hour or so, so it's really not that big of a commitment. Same thing for podcasts, I'll put it on when I'm driving/doing chores around the house/etc.

Part of DCs gripe with him when they didn't renew his contract was that he never wore DC stuff, so he was complaining about not getting credit for the 5 DC logos that were under 1 square inch in size. If I were Raymond DC III I wouldn't have been too excited about it either. Mikemo then says they should've just said it was because he was injured not because he wasn't repping them enough even though he probably wasn't.

The way I interpreted it, sometimes you just get stuck on a trick and can't let it go, even if it's not working. He also gave Moose letters with inward heel variations last time they played, that's probably where his head was at. I'm actually surprised he didn't give it a fourth try.

I think people really started getting fed up with it when they did the pro vs joes theme. Most pros were playing a regular game and then there was a bunch of kids doing ugly circus tricks. Can't blame the kids but it wasn't entertaining to watch. Granted, most of the pros don't start pulling out circus tricks til the last letter or if they are trailing bad.

I'm glad PJ advanced, mostly because I hate how Moose skates flat ground compared to the other pros. Pretty sure he played Luan once and the disparity in speed and pop was ridiculous.

To be honest, PJ looked pretty soggy because that game had 0 warmup for him.  He just got there and tried a couple tricks then went to get a drink and when he came out, everyone was sitting down ready for the game.  So he just went for it totally cold.  Just a little background is all.  And he and I had just had a full pressure flip session 2 days earlier...so he brought it early... ;)

This will be a very interesting one, because Shane's strength is his massive bag of massive flips, and while PJ can often match these, his real strength is consistency with all the more simple tricks.

at least a do over i thought but i'm glad to have his namby pamby ass outta here!

That kickflip by Sewa was beautiful (http://i.imgur.com/XRpv1CA.jpg)
He seemed a lot more comfortable than last years.


Actually, he did about 10 tricks I thought looked amazing. It's just the 360 flip, 360 shove, 540 shove look horrible

His f/s flip was fuckin amazing

Shane vs Ishod today, could be interesting. Shane probably has every existing flip trick on lock, whereas Ishod seems like the kind of guy who can do any trick in one or two tries, even if he has never tried them before.

I had a friend like that years and years ago. We would be trying some lame early 90's shit over and over - like a back foot varial heelflip or a pressure flip late kickflip. He would ask us what trick it was (he didn't know any trick names), we would explain the trick and he would always land them within 3 or 4 tries, then never do it again.

Too bad he quit skating and became a raver.

Your correct. I just happened to notice it. It's like he just got on medication or something. PJ always talked a lil during these things but Shane seemed super uncomfortable. Now he's joking around and looks somewhat comfortable.

Re: Malto vs. Cookie:

Since I've been able to land a few flip tricks myself after well over ten years of trying... I've gained a new perspective on BATB. And the perspective is... some of these guys look really bad bailing on tricks. You don't roll your ankle in the Berrics on camera. Just miss the trick. But hey, just me. Some of the bails in this game were ridic. They aren't the only ones doing this either. Imo, one bad bail is fine for a gail, but 2+ and you're starting to look cray out there. If you bail so bad you roll your ankle to where you can't continue, then what?

Me too. Wanted to see him win it, honestly. Also both he and PJ and I think Morgan kept trying the same trick that they couldn't land over and over regardless of whether it's strategic, I guess that determination is telling of how good they are on flat. With this game felt like they were biased against him and in favour of Malto.

in his Nine club he says he's injured and not back to full skating. Also, to the haters of my previous comment...  If you're committing so hard to a trick you can't really do that well in BATB to the point where you fall and risk injury, by landing hard AF primo, etc... that's a "nah, I'm good" situation. but just my opinion.

I usually avoid the trick names in the games so I didn't even notice the mislabel until the second time around, but those were for sure fs 360 shuvits.
At first viewing, when I looked down at the trick name I thought I missed Colbourne's wrap, but no, both fs 360 shuvs.

Yeah, pretty clear it was whoever edited this video that mislabeled the trick.

Does anyone know why luan and Felipe are bitter towards eachother? I remember seeing a luan interview where he mentioned he was amazed bc he saw Felipe win Tampa am and thought his style was disgusting or something along those lines (less harsh) and that's when lu knew it was possible for him to go take it. Either way luan is the best looking flat skater period. I no it's been said. It Nike really needs to do him justice w a proper part. Luan ishod gt Shane and cory. They are the "best of the best"

Felipe would have a nice 360 Flip if he wouldn't stank leg it. In the vandalism part he had 360 flip nosegrind and 360 flip backside crook, and both looked nice.

While at the BATB game he stankylegs normal 360 flip and then his fakie 360 flip looked so awkward. I bet he must be self couscous the tricks look shit, but it cannot be changed.

I'm glad Joslin won. How many times have we seen like the same six guys in the finals? It's makes for some predictable matches since we've seen a lot of those dudes play each other already. Luan has been in the finals already once or twice, so I was definitely cheering Joslin on just to spice things up a bit and give us something new for the finals night matches. From how it looks right now there will be at least two new dudes in finals night guaranteed: Joslin, and whoever wins between Sean Malto and Nick Tucker; none of those dudes have ever made it to the finals before.

It's all good for me bc we get a buncha footy of him skating flat
They should put a video up of him doing all his gnarly flat ground.

I think it was strategy, he realized he wasn't gonna just out battle Shane on basics, he needed a circus type trick that Shane has never tried, probably a little bit of a mental breakdown just couldn't come up with good obscure trick fast enough. He threw the pressure flip out on Shane pretty early and it didn't work, and it doesn't look like you can out double flip him so you gotta try something.

Joslin probably going to win since has all the not bullshit tricks down pack. Shane always goes to switch double tre just like Luan always did switch 360 flip revert in crunch time. People don't sit around and practice that shit.

Pjs loss hurt, I really wanted him to win this one.  What bothers me the most is Shane's fake humility, it's like he is worried of jinxing himself if he admits he is the best out there:  I know imthay for the most part ego is not cool but at Shane's level it's a little absurd to act like you haven't been trying, and achieving for that matter, to be the best.

Signature circus-tricks seem pretty essential in the later rounds and eventually people will catch up - just like they did with the nollie front foot flip and hardflip 180's. Shane's bag seems fucking limitless though.

anybody else impressed, or puzzled by how insanely unrelatable skaters in general have been getting at flatground ever since the first BATB's ? i mean, that obviously happened, but i'm trying to think of how the influence worked - maybe BATB became such a popular format early on that foreseeing a market there, the berrics started to shed more light & exposure on this particular type of skaters and consequently, the industry followed through (remember josiah gatlyn ?). and then maybe that impacted the average kid's skating once they took notice, and they developed accordingly ? much in the vein of how rowley once said he didn't know skate videos were edited as grom, therefore would make it a point to get all his tricks on absolute lock due to assuming pro skaters never once missed their trick.

obviously not saying everyone doing good in BATB has a similar style. but there's definitely been a significant shift ever since the first editions where you had the likes of paul shier playing, and people were regularly (and realistically) missing tricks, whereas now a large part of the competitors are flatground machines who are programmed not to ever fuck up (and whenever they do feels like a glitch, like it's wrong & not supposed to happen). i'd like to say the phenomenon probably culminated with pros vs. joes, but really i wouldn't know as i didn't watch BATB that year.

for what it's worth, some dudes have been getting their BATB shine for already skating that way, whilst others (mostly the old-timers) look like they've been working on catching up with said dudes - usually successfully. funnily enough, although part of this latter generation of older dudes, PJ looks like he's been working on never missing tricks since day one anyway, before it was any popular to begin with - to me anyway, it looks like it's been part of his skating's ethic for the longest time.

now it's almost become a staple that if you're pro, it's not acceptable to miss (let alone, not being able to form) certain tricks. i remember liking it when, in early editions of BATB, i'd occasionally see a pro not even getting close to some trick ; when it was obvious they had certain weaknesses, yet nobody gave a shit, it was all just skating, the dude was honoring his status getting sick street footage on the side anyway and had nothing to prove to the masses. nowadays i barely even dare scrolling through the youtube comments on the games because i know it's going to be full of thrasher shirt-wearing groms talking shit on respectable skaters for bailing a flatground switch flip (albeit for the first time since 1998). i mean youtube comments have always been kooky, but as a skater i literally feel disconnected nowadays.

not too sure what i really want to address with this post, but i liked seeing pj almost miss the kickflip. heavy WHL part intro throwback vibes ; i could almost hear 'i just missed the kickflip', and i was watching the game without sound.

you are right, it is nothing but a mere logical consequence of skateboarding having become so widespread that every other company (especially in the shoe department) is now competing for the general public's attention, rather than the skaters', because in the current state of things there isn't nearly as much money to be made from the 'insiders' as there is from the more casual non-skating audience of general consumers (which has to be like what, twenty times bigger at the very least ?). even among said insiders, everybody is good at skating nowadays so the amount of genuine skaters who actually have to go out of their way and actively purchase product has to be pretty low in comparison to how many dudes are being given free stuff, at least that's how i feel things have been ever since the corporate shoe brands entered the market only to then start flowing hundreds of dudes worldwide, prompting all the other brands to try & get on that program as well, and branch out with products conceived for the general public on the side (regardless of the imagery they try & go for : boutique-y shit for the wannabe-hip folks yearning for acceptance, weed socks for the 13-year-olds, turning half of your skateshop into a coffee shop... the logic is similar).

the abundance of videos only reflects that. i mean most skate videos have always been made for commercial purposes, but they used to be a vehicle for our code, they used to speak a language only skaters could relate to, be it through illustrating all the crazy shit we go through on the daily with the crazy people on the streets, battles, slams... (which, funnily enough, is the hottest shit right now... our lifestyle sells and will keep selling so long as streaming videos is more convenient than actively going through the shit yourself ; so long as being a spectator is easier & more comfortable than acting... which it always will be)... or through the appreciation of style, trick selection... and now that's the very aspect that's being vulgarized. hence the popularity of ridiculously fancy fits, instagram skaters and whatnot... that shit's not a vector primarily intended for skaters anymore... it's just meant to be streamed on phones by teenagers and which hopefully will catch their attention enough to make them want to consume by purchasing the new hot shoes that will never ever once touch griptape... or hoodies their moms will fuck up ironing as soon as after the first wash anyway...

skateboarding's sudden rise in general popularity & the consequent tendency of the market to open itself to the average consumer is why the fashion world has been taking notice too. have you guys ever seen that golden goose bullshit floating around ? supposedly high-end shoes that cost a fuckton and just look like thrashed, worn-out skate shoes complete with fake holes... i got some for my girlfriend a few years ago not realizing that's what they were, she had just sent me a link to what i assumed were (pricey) second-hand shoes, alright... when she eventually got them & i got to take a closer look i realized how try-hard those shitheads were just from that label underneath the tongue which literally says, 'for skateboard use only, not designed for any other activity', i mean how fucking disgusting is that, if you call yourself a brand, don't even come from skateboarding in the first place yet try to claim that shit just so you can capitalize on whoever you're trying to take for a ride you can fuck right off with that bullshit... like stop fucking pretending. and at least sell to skateshops and sponsor dudes, fund parks, do something constructive for skateboarding, i don't know. i should have bought her lakai's... well it's not too late...

I have to say that I can't see anything wrong with sw 360 double flips if you have it on lock like Shane does. He makes them look good too.

Plus what are you supposed to do when you go up against a guy who can literally do every other trick and you have him at SKAT? I actually think Shane, PJ and all the other grand masters of flatground play very civil games. There seems to be an unspoken rule not to come out and just kill a guy in five tricks flat (probably to get games that are longer than one minute). Remember that one old game where Cory Kennedy came out with a nollie fs 360 double kickflip or something crazy like that as his first trick? Everyone could do that, but it seems to be scoffed at.

maybe everyone can come out swinging for the fences but do they have the stamina, the intensity to bring that sort of gaming to the whole match? 5 bizarro pressure/double/cab/late tricks in a row?
pj could serve your ass like john mcenroe but i don't know if he can spell SKATE w/out straight 8s and 360 flips to hang onto the ball.

In this one he tries nollie 360 kickflip for like his second trick

www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHS3Cp63mX4 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHS3Cp63mX4#)

This game is also pretty relevant to the discussion for other reasons.

I root for PJ whenever he's playing, but I think he can be a little below the belt in his quiet way. Like in this game against CK: He gets CK on the fakie heel, then throws a half cab heel then the other half cab heel at him. I've noticed him do similar things in other games too. I guess this is more strategic than dirty tactics though, since he tends to stick to legitimate tricks and hone in on his opponents weaknesses, rather than resorting to bizarre tricks that most people never bother to learn.

But in saying that, he has thrown a pressure flip into the last two games, as well as a heelflip Applechange attempt. I guess he's got bills to pay or something

That's what I've heard them be referred to both in Orange County and Oregon.

A few months after I came out, I did one at the skatepark and a nice local boy thought it would be funny to call it an "LGBT flip." A minute later, I realized I should have said "That's why I'm good at them." But I didn't, and noone gave me an easy chance to mention my attraction to other male humans after that.

I watched a bunch of Corey games of skate last night looking for this one, and he blows it just as much as he kills it, he gets tons of letters on easy tricks, he also seems like one of those weirdos that its just as easy for him to do a nollie double 360 flip as it is to do a kickflip, he has just as much chance of missing each so he may as well just go for the crazy trick out the gate.

My thing with Cory is that he just honestly doesn't look comfortable skating big tranny compared to his other teammates like raven, grant or even ishod. Those guys are meant to be skating that stuff and look great doing it. Anytime I see Cory skate tranny its usually just a fast plant or a barely scratched bs smith. It just gets forgotten immediately specially when it's part of a montage with the other guys. I'm glad he's at least still skating but it always seems like throwaway footage now.

it's always been my theory that the vibes he got for taking out a killshot first or second trick, is what turned him into drunken i don't give a fuck not really trying shits and giggles cory.  but every so often we get a glimpse and it's enough to keep him in the pantheon/nike money.

Interesting.  I had the theory that he started hanging out more with Grant and Ishod and realized that he is on their level-which is best in the world level/why do stupid freestyle contests when I can skate tranny and have a beer instead.  Could be wrong though.

Post by: RoaryMcTwang on June 24, 2017, 08:00:12 PM
I have to agree, he came out swinging in the beginning. He's been off that for years now, but at least he's still skating.

Even he said that Rick Howard wants him to start skating technically again in an interview, and that was years ago as well. Not talking shit, he's amazing but Girl's been dealt a lot of bad hands and maybe his new approach is one of them.

He gets plenty of love from people, maybe I'm old and just don't get how much other people revere him. It'd be cool if he got more tech hammers though.

Exactly. It's not like he piled out and stopped skating completely, then returned as a shell of his former self like some other revered pro's.......

My thing with Cory is that he just honestly doesn't look comfortable skating big tranny compared to his other teammates like raven, grant or even ishod. Those guys are meant to be skating that stuff and look great doing it. Anytime I see Cory skate tranny its usually just a fast plant or a barely scratched bs smith. It just gets forgotten immediately specially when it's part of a montage with the other guys. I'm glad he's at least still skating but it always seems like throwaway footage now.

Also wtf happened to Fyock. I mean I'm glad he lost but he didn't really try at all.

He said he was injured in the Before the Battle thingy and that he hadn't skated in a month. CRob then pressed him and he admitted yeah well he had nollie inward heeled a table a few days ago but other than that...

Although he seems kooky, I hoped for him to win to be honest. Would have made the finals more interesting to have another (relatively) new face in there. I feel with Sewa it's way too obvious what we're going to see. 360 shuv... 540 shuv... Double treflip...  hardflip fs revert... dozing off...

Funny how people skip the "Before the Battle" clips and then still post on this thread and try to throw shade at the skaters and the entire contest in general, trying to be all, "Yeah, BATB? Whatever man I'm so core..."  I watch BATB every year and enjoy it every time. Doing something different would be cool, though I agree. Maybe switch up the format somehow to make it more interesting, or only hold the comp every 2-4 years and make the brackets larger. Meh, it's fine the way it is.

^^^^I liked Joes Vs Pros. I thought it had a nice story book ending. Last year was just bad and that was what we all sort of wanted....unknown skaters playing with no people from the past. It was probably the worst one yet. I do like how The Berries is doing other things though like PUSH and the other contests. All the First Try Fridays stuff and Wednesdays with Reda needed to not happen anymore. BATB just needs to follow eventually.

I think as long as there is skateboarding there will be games of skate. I like that The Berrics makes it a part of their programming.  I think where they fail is making them so "theme-heavy"...

A game of skate between two solid skateboarders is already good enough.

Never mind the goofy VS regular, US VS  Them, blacks VS whites, etc. it's extra.

Best of the best should have been aging pros in their twilight years (Heath, Thomas, Rowley, Reynolds) ...not Will Fyock?

They need to go with HUF rules- Dudes on "Cool" board sponsors vs. dudes on "Uncool" board sponsors.
 
Or Corpo shoes vs. "Core shoes."  Well that would likely end badly for the core bros.

Or People on Spitfire vs. people on every other wheel company.

fyocks regular flick ankle was injured, you could tell. you don't need to kickflip to nollie inward heel a table.

you try doing a front side flip with a bum ankle, he's clearly got them in the other games.

if you would have put money on joslin going to the finals before the first game you'd have nuts, shocked how consistent that guy is.

hoping Sewa doesn't try to do O'Neill greezy and the game builds organically.

First people complain that too many of these matches are boring because it's just everyone running through the same ol basic tricks, then when someone actually pulls out the circusy shit, people still complain.
And I'm pretty sure Joslin is going to win. He seems like the most consistent one out of the final four, unless sewa decides to pull out his five or six tricks he has on lock that no one else can do, then I can see him taking it pretty easily, but if not then Joslin is probably going to take it.
Tucker has his circusy shit but seems to be not so consistent on a lot of the more basic stuff, and Shane is a monster but has been known to blow it on finals night, but if he's on his game then I can definitely see him possibly winning.

Yes. I for one thought this one was very entertaining. I much prefer if people pull out the difficult stuff , makes it much more entertaining. And Eg Biggerspin flip is not circus in my book, just mind-bogglingly hard to do.

The semi-final games were vastly more entertaining than the final. Then again, my video was cutting out every 20 min.

I can't hate on Joslin too hard but he did seem to be the villain in this one. Wasn't feeling the whole taking a lap before popping the next trick thing but everyone was doing that (except Shane?). Cool that Rodney Mullen was there.

If you're an OG you were rooting for Shane his game with Sewa was the best skating imo. Joslin's style is not my steelo.  Also, what happened with the Crob vs Mike Mo game. Still want to watch that.

Next year: washed up skaters vs each other.  or.... everyone has to skate the same setup in every game (official berrics skateboards only) to level the playing field.  And make it a 7.5 I'm out till next time Bring back chris chann and billy marks 1

Pretty insane he called himself out on that--totally clean in my book.

That being said--it's kind of an interesting defensive move if you think about it: because that re-do was so clean, it made even the slightest amount of sketchiness from Joslin automatically be a re-do solely by comparison. Granted it didn't help Sewa in this instance, but I could see that working favorably for a very clean vs sketchy skater in the future.

He's not my favorite but i was rooting for him.  there are not many dudes who can routinely do reynolds sized shit and then come thru and beat all the robots, jocks, flatground specialists and what have you at their thing.  You can say he's not good at flat but he did land quite a few hard tricks in a row to get there, and all of his games were good ones.  diego, luan, nick, & sewa (who is now a disgrace to the drago clan)=he's good at flat.

also, why were fools practicing cheerleading splits in shanes face during his last letter attempt in the finals and it was ok?  messed up, but kinda funny too.  

the apology was the cherry on top.  lol

Post by: tkp on July 02, 2017, 11:26:47 AM
Sewa may have cost himself the game, or at least tipped the odds in Joslin's favor by calling himself out on the toe drag, but he has now attached an image of honesty/humbleness to his name.

Late flips seem to be the secret weapons. Surprised to see no one pulling out the Kerry Getz kickflip late shove it, that was the first late trick I can remember from my youth.

As someone who got into skateboarding for its lack of competition, and someone who gets bummed when I see kids playing skate at the skatepark instead of flowing around it, these are entertaining. Watching the best of the best battle it out in regards to who can flip their board in the wildest way. Kinda like a yo yo competition with a hint of boxing in a ring mixed in.

Dudes are breaking down the rules on the Berrics Youtube comments if that's your thing. We've reached the point where parts of skateboarding have rules people pay attention to and get worked up over. Then again when money is on the line, that's understandable.

Is there a site where we can place bets on who will win these things?

sewa's tall. bigger feet there is going to be a wider margin for perfection. that call was unique, but had he not won in the past no way he would have made that decision.

instagram post explaining the whole thing kind of tarnished the decision honestly. going in on "in life you have to make the right decision etc".

it's like BATB is a judgement of character at this point. and Sewa has definitely gone in for the kill in the past. all you have to do is study the opponents weakness and drill them after going through the motions.

O'Neill's approach was waf, i was rooting for him but he went for the jugular way too quickly.

joslin absolutely deserved to win, but i've never witnessed one trick he's done on flat that was compelling.

Sewa was sitting pretty with only S and had Chris at T when he made the call to redo himself, and in his mind probably thought that if he'd won it with that dagger then the YouTube comments section/Slap would blow up with people calling him out for the for drag. He still had plenty of room to shut it out but unfortunately it backfired for him because Joslin came back.

All things considered I thought the referee-ing during finals night was actually great. I always bring it back to, in a game of skate against your friend or in front of like 20-40 people at a high school or whatever, there are certain unspoken rules of what counts and what doesn't.

It doesn't always come down to these specific "offensive toe drag" stuff, but those are good guidelines to try to summarize the rules imo. Hence why a lot of YouTube people are debating the concrete aspects of what happened but forgetting it's ultimately up to the ref.

The best back and forth in finals night was Shane's one-foot front 180 to start his game, cause it was floated so high. I'm not sure he did it on purpose because or just floated it because of nerves or what but it was tight.

Jenkem, can we get an interview with whoever the nerd was that was that had to sit there running titles through on the fly, only to butcher it on the last trick of the whole event?

I wonder if he had some kind of beatpad or midi controller type thing to punch tricks through quickly, or if he was running keyboard shortcuts on a lappy.

I watched live. No titles for trick name as far as I can remember. Someone with high-speed internet would know better than me though. My stream was all wonky.

They did provide some of the letters for S-K to S, for example. But I also remember those going in and out and not always showing up. In the livestream it was definitely different because people were taking mad long in between tricks, or I'm just not used to that because it's always edited. Either way.

It's better without the titles for sure. But I also see how they're useful.

I was thought the same thing, his flat ground game (while heads and tails above mine) is ugly - that said, Tucker wasn't so graceful either, all slow and clunky.

But ultimately it will be decided by the referee.

I like how at the end of the rules they basically say the referee can just completely disregard the rules.
The way it's written, that only applies to "defensive toe drag has a bigger margin for error, but...";

not "all rules will ultimately be decided by..."

Tortfeasor, any thoughts on this?

Ah, after looking at the written rules you are totally right, there is pretty much zero room for grammar error the way they have it.
I just found out texting at stoplights is distracted driving, the easy way. Basically written rules are rarely followed. The price you pay on a 99 cent avocado ends up costing 1.10 so what's the point?

That shit was pretty lame, imo.  Shane should've gotten a redo there due to that obvious distraction.  That idiot shouldn't have even been on the course at that time.

A snapshot I found makes me think we won't be seeing much of him any time soon

Fascinating. I always thought sw varial kickflip was a killer move... apparently not anymore. Also, Cookie should have been in the finals!

Wow, lots of data there!

TL;DR: late flips/pressure flips win berrics battles ;)
