Kostonís shoes look like theyíre too big.  Weird to see him on a big board too.

Iíve always noticed that too. Explains why he toe drags a lot.

Maltoís switch flip maneuvers are noticeably better than all his other tricks.

Noticed that too. Wonder why

I can't take Malto seriously, not sure why. Great game to start it off with though, hopefully the matches continue with the same quality.
Has anyone really been far as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

Malto is fuckin good, for sure.

But he struggles with basic ass tricks all the time.

He doesnt even look pro level, then I'm reminded he nosegrinded 10387 handrails

Nike make skaters look pretty bad. When Malto was on Etnies he got a decent style. His And Now part os fucking good with to many bangers. Same with Koston, his lakai days was the shit..fakie 3 on big four.

I think thatís more to do with his obliterated ankle more than anything. Once you have an injury like that you are never the same...

Found it pretty funny that Koston got his final letter on a "Rick flip"...

Kockston has the excuse of not giving a shit and being old as Boras tears

Yeah, my favorite are the chicks in the crowd staring at their phones totally oblivious to what's goin on, just like out in the streets.

Laughed at Maltos ss fs flip airball, I've been known to do that at times with that move (it's embarrassing)then land it next try, glad to see I'm not alone.

Actually, most of his tricks are flawless when he's out skating naturally.

It seems like he's ALWAYS a bit off when skating BATB. Some dudes just get the jitters when put on the spot like that.

who the fuck is captioning these tricks, that's called a fakie frontside heelflip. not frontside halfcab heel

When did you start skateboarding? I remember in the early 2000s, I always saw it called frontside half cab heel!

I hate it when they hype people up just so we can find out later that they are dog shit at flatground.

He can do them all, just not first try on demand.

As I was viewing it I assumed Mike Mo would get first pick on the east bracket, why else would you let Chris pick all the favorites? Where was PJ and Shane?

Idk feels like dudes like PJ and Shane might be a bit burnt out from these contests. same with Cole and im sure others who have been staples since the start. good to see some new faces anyhow
I think Cole talks about being pretty bummed on it on the Nine Club on how they brought in all those Joes. Like he was happy that kid beat him, but he hated what it did to it. The original games had a code to an extent, and the only person to break it really was Cory Kennedy, who at the very least was backed by very legit sponsors. Later on, it had guys who weren't really that known, didn't have notable sponsors, who went for the kill early on with heavy tricks or a trick they knew a guy couldn't land.

I know people aren't a fan of him around here sometimes for how he can be a dick. But, I actually loved what Koston did to that kid who was going right to double flips and ridiculous tricks to beat established pros. Just pulled out some fucking early 90's pressure flips that he wouldn't have done to a respected pro. Can't blame the kid though, he was never going to make it and they put up $10g's, but the pros avoided doing it because they already get paid and they'd be viewed as a kook for doing it.

They jumped the shark and can't go back. Was way better when it was just casual games between respected pros.
