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

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.

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.

To quote Telly: TROOOOOO
I didn't see him getting 3rd.
Never forget that most SLAP users unquestionably worship/purchase the sweaty undergarments of 30 year old men who are chasing the dream of 15 year old boys.

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

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

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).
