Awesome to see Gillette seems to have his tricks back after his knee surgery recovery.

That was great. The energy looked crazy high. I remember 10 years ago, at events like this, when it got to Dennis's clips it always seemed like he was going twice as fast as everyone else.

Yes

Amazing lineup, wish I could've been there. I usually don't get too psyched on contest clips but this was more like a demo with some trophies thrown in.

Is there some backstory to Austyn & Silas I'm out of the loop on?

Nothing crazy, they just didn't get along years ago, like in 2010 or so.

I saw him skate Tampa Pro back in 2010 before his knee surgeries.
It was the most fluid, most amazing skating Ive ever personally witnessed.
Between runs he would just power through the course landing everything he tried.
Glad hes back to skating at his full potential again.

Instead of the spitfire crew vids from a few years back can we get this crew to do a tour? I never wanted it to end, everyone of these dudes just gets better and the gnarliest shit like it was nothing. Daans blunt had me feeling some type of way.

Gillette is a monster, but Cromer's back 3 kickflip was popped so absurdly high. This entire line up is nuts. I would pay money to watch this.

I'm sure that none of these Legends care about the real outcome, but I feel like Raney got robbed. He goes higher, faster and gnarlier, the footage (to me) proves it. He's not even skating the same stuff that the rest of the dudes are.
I guess that's why I'm not a skate judge? Maybe.

Cromer's back 3 kickflip

So good. He should have won just for that.

That was amazing, such a great line up of skaters, I think a wes and busenitz split part would be so good.

I had no idea Austyn could do big shit like that. He deserved it. So much crazy difficult stuff in there. Coming off that wall switch? Fucked.

Possibly the best contest lineup since some mid 90's slam city jam.

i watched it again and see what your saying but he also didn't have any street or switch so i'm not so sure. maybe over mark but i don't think over austin.

A contest can be the best thing in skateboarding if done right and this one sure looks like it was. Great to see this type of stuff popping up more now when most contest are getting more and more sterile

I saw him skate live around the same time too and it was unreal. Just cruising throwing fs flips on the pyramid popping twice as high and far as the rest of the skaters.

I'm going to bump this one more time. This contest should be remembered as the Jim's Ramp Jam of 2018. This is exactly who should be skateboarding and how it should be presented.

It could also use some Ishod, Jake Johnson, and Louie Lopez, but it was amazing. Really reminded me of how heavy a team Habitat had when Austyn was still on (not that it isn't stacked right now).
