I don't even care if rattray didnt land the fakie heel, and damn beach was destroying it.  As was said before that sw back tail on the quarter was so effortless, he was ripping.
That goofy mother fuckin' man in that room will survive that shit.

Big Candy definitely had the best lines at Tampa. He battered it.

lutzka is to krooked as vov is to anti hero... seriously, what the fuck?!

with matt beach gone all this time it felt like he quit skateboarding completely, but his run clearly shows how well he's kept up. damn, my favorite run for sure, as well as my favorite "comeback". he keeps it slightly underground, i like it. this is the first contest footage ive cared about since terrell robinsons gap tre flip boardslide in skeleton makeup at damn am a few years back. that shit was nuts

my friend told me sheckler wasnt even there to accept his 5th place prize money, what a fool
I'm not surprised. An audience full of skaters wouldn't be as warm as one full of teeny boppers.




Did you watch any of the you-tubings? There were absolutely no screaming fans.
I rarely venture into classic slap and the one time I do it I find a guy getting his dick eaten by a dolphin.

Did Busenitz bail?  I thought he had the best run outside of Rattray.  Speaking of which, it looks like Rattray is gonna have a killer '08.  Last part in Feed The Need, killing Tampa Pro, tons of sick ads.

They should just make the prize money smaller. Small enough that the contest rats won't care enough to go.

Add to the prize a keg with the brand of their choosing. If the rider is straight edge, let him/her have a keg of MacDonald's orange drink if they want. It will be better than a cheque.


Now, from lowering that cheque, they could throw in bonus prize money. Ones pro's don't know about until after. Legit ones too.

- Most legit tricks to risk in a run.
- Biggest hammer in a run.
- Techest trick in a run.
- Best line.
- Sickest tattoo.
- Widest board.
- Fastest Abec.
- etc.


The idea is that Tampa was never a "contest" but an annual party for skateboarding. It could still be a contest, but the motives need to be changed.

You can thank Nike for making the prize money bigger. Everything their money touches turns to shit.

If they made first place a trophy and a hot dog, I guarantee you you'd have the best contest ever.

well don't forget beer city. kid has ben around for a while, I don't like him or really enjoy his skating that much, but he does waht you have to do in a contest, land alot of hard tricks, in a row, not fall, in a short amount of tiime
 beach, berrard and busenitz had the best looking runs.

I remember when Lutzka rode for Beer city. I'd see him skating a park by me during the winter months. He was a cocky little bitch who eventually got banned from the park for being such a prick that nobody wanted him around. He would do tricks that other people had done, look around and wait for people to cheer. Usually his syncophants from Milwaukee would get all ass-kissey and freak out about how awesome he was. I hoped like hell he wouldn't make it, because he'd make the midwest look bad. I heard he got a BETTER attitude as he aged, and mellowed out, but according to the Tim O'Conner epicly later'd, he still is an egocentric asshole who jerks off to his own ads.

Hey! Rattray's style is still gross, and contest results are still irrelevent! What 'news' do you see?

Rattray's style is good. Contests are... yeah, pointless, aside from the fact that its what keeps the jocks skating.
