This is going to be the entertainment I've been deprived of...  Since the pandemic hit I basically stopped watching all sports.

If this was like 6 years ago I'd give Aaron Kyro a chance at quarterfinals. He built his career by filming tutorials for every flatground trick, and if you've watched any of his videos he usually learns stuff within a matter of tries, but he's too old now to really go that far.

I've seen a lot of YT comments saying how John Hill will go far, but I don't know... I've never seen him do a hardflip back 180 or whatever that trick everyone does is.

That would be awesome but it most likely isnít happening. He definitely wrote the Berries off years ago.

Why would he have beef with the Berrics though?

I donít think thereís beef, he just stopped taking anything that goes on in that place seriously years and years ago

Yeah, even though he is out of jail there are still restrictions in place regarding his ability to travel/leave his area.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing who is in the "icon" bracket and seeing them play each other.

Fuck influencers.. jesus Berrics how desperate are you for a social media bonus points boost. Have it all pros, no fucking sex change late flip bullshit either. Arto Saari was the best thing that happened to the BATB.. he didnt even win a game but he popped his tricks like a real man.

the only guy i really follow from there is Jamie Griffin from Ireland, he can do some pretty insane stuff. i am pretty hype on him because he skated this like 4x4 space in a garage and got pretty damn good just skating that small ass space like zero speed. half the time just skating on a deck with no trucks. but from what i understand those tricks take him hours and hours worth of tries. im sure he has some really nice go-to's, but i dont think it necessarily means you have the nerves, strategy, etc. to win this tournament. i thought donovan was going to do relaly well in the berrics because some of the difficult tricks he could do but then when it came down to it he had zero consistency. he acutally looked super wack, bodied in the first game.

that guy who won pros vs joes is probably my favorite to win. he has exactly the right mentality + strategy, the consistentcy, and the really difficult tricks to back it up. that being said he is super boring to watch lol!

id actually rather just see a game against pros like before!

i actually think the game would be much more interesting if you were forced to do the tricks on a bank, or over a small gap, instead of on pure flat. pure flat opens up too much stupid stuff. if you were forced to ride above a certain height on the bank that would force you to go faster etc. its not really fair some guys are absolutely crawling and the other guys are flying etc. or if you are forced to go over a gap obviously same thing happens. this alone would definintely seperate pros vs joes .

for a PRO game i think that is reasonable. im not a big fan of the LEDGE vs GRIND or whatever the fuck its called because adding the ledge in adds too much chance for variation of a single grind. its like you can do back tail, back tail fakie, back tail shove, back tail front shove, and if the other guy doenst have back tail thats 4 letters done, and really you only had 1 trick over the other guy, those variations dont really tack on much extra difficulty at all.

it also just draws the game out like crazy. i wouldnt mind introducing a rule where after 5 makes in a row maybe, its the other guys turn to set, to force people from just wasting time with easy tricks. this would be a simple rule addition they could add to existing ruleset with pretty minimal intrusion.

Wait, let me get this straight: So the Semi Final will be the top guy in Pros VS. the top guy in Joes and on the other side it's the Top Influencer VS Top Icon?

And the winner of each will go into the final?

Isn't there a high likelihood that the pros will smoke everyone in their path? And that all the qualifier battles in pros will be tougher match-ups than the semi final and final?

What is your take?

I actually think the Joes bracket is the hardest + favorite to win. in the last "pro' s joes", some guy from like ;like bumfuck michigan just did a bunch of switch double flip variations and took out Luan Oliveria in 5 straight letters. the joes dont have to worry about actually having a career and doing cool stuff - they can just focus on the acutal game, they dont have any obligation to uphold a certain style or anything like that or make the tricks look good. pros DO.

they acutally should have stuck the JOES with the INFLUENCERS  and the PROs with the ICONS because that creates the most hype final - clearly the toughest 2 brackets are the Pros and Joes without a doubt - they shouldnt be made to square off before the finals...

You talking about Slides & Grinds? Did you actually watched it? One of the rules is that you actually need to alternate between slides and grinds when setting up the trick so what you said doesnít happen. You also get 2 tries to match the trick that was set, 3 on the last letter. Itís super fair imo.

So I’m good friends with a lot of the people announced in the Influencer bracket, and similar to what John Hill said above I know personally four people who were asked to participate that politely declined, yet ended up being announced into the brackets anyway.  I actually really do enjoy the concept of this year’s BatB, but the way they’re going about the execution is not looking too good.

Probably because he is not in a good place mentally and does not want to get destroy by slap for mobing a nollie flip or whatever. It would be dope if most of the influencers did not participated, like ę nop we are doing well bye Ľ. Tho I liked the chris chann games he did a few years back. He has a really solid flat ground game

Post by: TheLurper on June 18, 2021, 09:47:24 AM
Yeah, it's not just the algorithm that promotes garbage it is the pay to play aspect of YouTube, IG, whatever.

The algorithm used to actually show me shit that was related to what I was watching (i.e. if I was watching skate videos from Buffalo YouTube would produce suggestions of other skate videos from Buffalo or if I was listening to Scarface it would produce Scarface or Geto Boys suggestions... Now, I get suggestions for Kyro's garbage or some stupid ass Drake song).

Everything has always been biased, pay to play, etc. but the guys doing the filtering weren't complete kooks. Thrasher/Phelps did some sketchy shit in the past, but I'll take that over some YouTube asshole pushing Kyro (or whatever horrid idea borra is pushing) because it'll appeal to 10 year olds and soccer moms/dads who get offended by everything.

The internet is barely different than traditional media. Slightly different practices, but the same lame ass way if thinking. Zumiez will always be more popular than the local shop and Kyro's garbage will always get more views than real skate footage. Any asshole can walk into Zumiez or turn on Kyro and understand it, real shops and real videos take knowledge and good taste to understand, something most people don't have and aren't going to work for.

not sure why i felt the need to post this here but the pandemic really has had me thinking like "fuck ALL these skateparks"
the scene at skateparks in my area is super super kooky. i am finding i dont even really have much in common with most skateboarders, they seem to be on the same wavelength of scooters with cariuma or w/e
actually seems like i have more in common with BMXer or Rollerblader - i actually give props to still see someone out doing those now because they are such a dying breed (maybe not so mcuh BMX but i think it has survived a lot of highs and lows like skating and maybe has finally found a good grassroots medium idk, i dont know shit about BMX)

i dont mean to be too "out there" but like i am kinda over people telling me how + where to skate
for awhile i was just lazy and the ground is perfect, you dont get kicked out, sure it is easy to fall into complacency
when you actually go and create your own spot and be the first person to ever put trucks on it is a really amazing feeling. no skatepark will ever bring you that feeling.

most of the time i just want to skate a curb, and most parks dont even have one. its not scary and its probably the most fun thing you can do and has lower chance of getting bodied on than a QP or stair set or rail. i can even have pretty good fun on flat ground without doing a single flip trick - just all variation of shove it and bigspin and bs and fs 360 can keep me going a long time too. most skateparks lack flat ground space too.

anyway i am just grateful to be able to do this still and realize theres lot of peopel who cant evne roll 5 feet without fallin off, theres a lot of interesting skateboarding that can be done still that doesnt really involve progressive stuff or risking your life or your walking / future skating.  sorry this has nothingto with BATB 12. i watched the first maybe two or three BATB with great anticipation as it was something i was really stoked to see and now i realize like 15 years later or w/e the direction this shit is going in is pretty lame i sohuld have seen it then

They said the ďJoeísĒ moniker is just their fancy name for their amís bracket. So these are all supposedly amís, not actual ďjoesĒ (like some random guy named Mike or something from Nebraska who they found through IG that has like 100 followers, what I would think when I hear the term ďJoeĒ).

He has been like that since at least 1994. I showed him around Idaho falls with the old foundation team and he threw his board in front of one of the ams that was killing it at the spot. Steve literally waited for him to go try the trick and pushed his board in front of him and kind of hurt him. Berra has been awful for a very long time

Watching those videos got me thinking whatís a good antonym for charisma. A quick Google search points to the word obnoxious which is close, but not quite right. Then I started wondering if the sudden rise in popularity in the word cringe as an adjective is because there just arenít that many words to describe this kind of anti-charisma.

I can't think of a single word for it, but in Berra's case it can be described as a deluded egomaniac.
[close]
He has been like that since at least 1994. I showed him around Idaho falls with the old foundation team and he threw his board in front of one of the and that was killing it at the spot. Literally waited for him to go try the trick and pushed his board in front of him and kind of hurt him. Berra has been awful for a very long time

I've seen a lot of YT comments saying how John Hill will go far, but I don't know... I've never seen him do a hardflip back 180 or whatever that trick everyone does is.
[close]

He's pretty average in both flatground and everything else - especially if you consider "he's a pro". Maybe he can beat one or two influencers, but he will get skunked eventually.

Let's see if he'll pay the Berrics 10,000 dollars.

Said he's not doing it, told them no apparently but they still announced him.

How funny is that. Some of the influencers realized they don't need berrics as much as berrics needs them. Good for them.
[close]


this is the funniest part to me. This feels like a really weird "gotcha" attempt by Berra but it's really more of a self-own. I just checked and that Andy Shrock guy alone has like 4 times the number of subs that The Berrics has.
[close]

Well yeah, but not even Berra stoops low enough to extort his kids by posting videos of them playing with LegosÖ

If this John Hill screen-cap is real... it's actually really lame. Pulling a "power move" on the Berrics for what reason exactly? What a pussy.

That guy actually seems like heís got some weird introvert shit going on. He skates by himself, talks to himself at skateparks, coffee shops restaurants. No wait, he only talks to his subscribers through his Vlog camera. It seems very unhealthy. Itís like he lives in the weird little YouTube bubble.

This was disappointing, but I guess heavily reliant on schedules etc...

- Mike Mo can't really skate anymore.
- Chaz vs O'Neill and Nyjah versus P-Rod? Come on, at least put O'Neill against Nyjah so that we can get rid of of one them early in the game.
- Malto an icon? He's good, but not icon status...
- Ribsman? Why not the pig cop from THPS while we're at it?

Why not Daewon? Reynolds? Busenitz? Dill?

This feel like when you're living in a small town and your town finally decides to build a skatepark and they go for a modular shitpark where most of the stuff is useless. At least you can manny the miniramp bottom, we at least we got Stevie and Mike V.

Mike V is a beast for agreeing to be in this.  Didn't he say he wasn't sure he could even ollie anymore like a year ago? 

On another note, these former pros who are 35+ know they're wild trash out there on popped flatground tricks, i.e. Crob saying, "I'm a slappy guy now" on the Nine Club.  Gotta respect that they'll put themselves out there in the contest.

I'm looking forward to seeing these "icons" skate except I have no idea who Ribsman is. I agree that it's sick that they're putting themselves out there, saying that I hope Chris Roberts at least tries to do some tricks, instead of just completely fucking around. Maybe that's wishful thinking.

also for those calling him out for "not being in the right head space, its just a game of skate bro" no it really isn't. even pros go in there and clearly have intense stage fright, it's not "just a game" when its a room full of industry ppl and recorded for thousands of kids on YT to watch.

I'm not trying to go to bat for this dude but I'm not down with people making light of mental health stuff.


Yeah I feel this. Hope me calling him a wiener didn't come off as disparaging to mental health. I meant it more in a general YouTube wiener-y way.

I don't really like any of those YouTube skaters but I don't see how anybody can see John Hill being in the wrong if he politely declined and they still threw him in.
[close]

Itís because he said he would add 10,000 thetans to the prize pool if they let him compete.
[close]



ok so he's a bit of a wiener but it's pretty silly to not actually confirm with him and hold him to a YouTube comment.

He's not wrong. He's just a poosey.

guys guys guys what if they got rodney mullen in this??? he invented EVERYTHING he'd WIN!!!
[close]

Why'd mullen quit skating? Song is still active but mullen's last part was Round 3. I doubt he'd do good in this games considering his age.
[close]

pretty sure his spine / hips got kind of toasted from skating so much regular, so he only skates switch now. at least thats what all the kooks tell me youtube says.

He put himself under a lifted car, lowered the jack and put the wheel well on his hip area, applied pressure and friction over time and broke up his calcifications/adhesions

ďSome scar tissue wrapped around my femur and pelvis and clasped together, pulling my femur into the hip socket. It was calcifying and was going to be the end of me walking normally. I donít want to be that guy that milks it so I was planning to disappear. Doctors told me they couldnít give me surgery and the only way to fix it was to break it, and thatís a very violent process. The bones had already started to fuse together so I had to physically put enough pressure on myself to break my own bone. I did that for an enormous number of hours. I stuck my leg in the wheel well of a car and grabbed the bottom of the frame and tweaked and tore as much as I could. My wife couldnít be around me. After two and a half years, I broke the scar tissue and some of the bone. When I did break it, it scared me to death. I heard it break and after the nausea and the adrenaline, I was lying on my garage floor at three in the morning screaming with my face covered in snot and tears. I just thought, ĎI can skate!íĒ

"You suffered and overcame a career-ending condition where your femur bone had fused into your hip. Can you describe your injury and what you did to recover?
I was doing a halfcab kickflip underflip, going at a good speed and I landed badly, ending up in the splits and tearing something in my hip. The scar tissue that developed as a result locked it down Ė I was cinched in. The bone would pull into my hip and grind, bone on bone, until eventually, calcification occurred, welding them together. I couldnít walk for any distance and skating seemed to be over.

After much deliberation, with doctors doubtful of my recovery, I engaged in medieval ways to break apart the bone fusion Ė hammering the end of screwdrivers into my flesh, climbing into the wheel well of my car to apply leverage while pulling on the carís frame. After thousands of hours, over years of doing this, I began breaking those dried-gum-like strands of fascia. I would often become overwhelmed, screaming violently in pain, panic-stricken that I was doing more damage than good and I would never be able to skate again. Until one night, hanging from my car, I heard a thump. And when I got up, I realized that I had broken the calcification and my hip joint was mobile again. That was the beginning of what was to come."

dont you think SKATE would be a more balanced / fair competition for the olympics than this street course runs + best trick attempts bs? it is pretty cut and dry you either landed the trick or you didnt.

these games would be 1000x more interesting if they forced the guy over a small gap even, would weed out the scrubs very quickly and pros would shine hard and expose these frauds

How is Cody Capeda pro? I don't think I've ever seen his name outside of games of skate at the berrics, and even then it was like 6 years ago

Somehow, and unfortunately, turning yourself pro became acceptable over time.

2 games a weekend with 64 skaters
how long will this take

64 skaters means 32 games
Those 32 winners play 16 games
Those 16 winners play 8 games
Those 8 winners would play 4 games

Then the final four go into the finals weekend

So at this pace if Iím going to add the games leading to the finals
32 + 16 + 8 + 4 = 60 games

Divide 60 by 2 since itís 2 games per weekend
Thatís 30 weeks

So if itís 30 weeks till the finals
Finals should commence in mid January 2022

its cut and dried but not really a good measure of talent. the person who goes first has a massive advantage. he just has to land 5 tricks the other guy doesn't have.

When Koston does interviews in documentaries, he is so damn normal. Itís only when heís on IG or Berrics where he has that persona. Donít get why he needs to do that unless the younger generation just totally relates to that shit.

Yeah, I generally find him pretty normal and level-headed (I remember him laughing and brushing off Jimmy Arrighi breaking his balls about Berra and Zenu), but he does seem to spaz on Insta and be a dork on the Berrics (which I never watch). I find Berra insufferable, he wants everything to be overdramatic and the spotlight.

Itís pretty obvious that Ishod doesnít give a fuck about winning contest. He always just does the tricks that he wants and isnít calculated like all those contest dudes.

Nah I don't buy that. The guy is fantastic in other areas of skateboarding, but he's just not a good (top 5) contest skater and that's ok. We all know why he won that SLS unsanctioned event, so it's not like "if he wants, he can win" kinda thing.

With this said, I'd rather have his bag of tricks than some of the "contest skater's" bag of tricks.

If youíre looking for proof that baggying up your clothes a bit makes you look better on your board, look no further than Nick Holt. Compare him in this to him in BATB7, he looks infinitely less atrocious.

That was actually a pretty decent game, they went back and forth for a while, and the circusy type tricks ended up coming out too. I feel like the influencer bracket will probably have some of the crazier games out of this whole thing cuz a lot of those dudes pretty much ONLY skate flat. A good chunk of that bracket is filled with YouTubers who post nothing but those weird game of skate videos, I feel like I see in my recommended section a new video with a title along the lines of ďblindfolded, hands tied behind your back, no griptape game of SKATE, click now!Ē like every other day from them.

If youíre looking for proof that baggying up your clothes a bit makes you look better on your board, look no further than Nick Holt. Compare him in this to him in BATB7, he looks infinitely less atrocious.

That was actually a pretty decent game, they went back and forth for a while, and the circusy type tricks ended up coming out too. I feel like the influencer bracket will probably have some of the crazier games out of this whole thing cuz a lot of those dudes pretty much ONLY skate flat. A good chunk of that bracket is filled with YouTubers who post nothing but those weird game of skate videos, I feel like I see in my recommended section a new video with a title along the lines of ďblindfolded, hands tied behind your back, no griptape game of SKATE, click now!Ē like every other day from them.

Does this mean Nick Holt fakes his style like Yuto?

are you saying that to you, ďstyleĒ is more so about the clothes you wear, as opposed to body language?
I donít mean this question to sound like a jab at you. A while back I had a conversation with a friend who was saying he believed style was all about clothing style.

baggier clothes can make the body language look better imo.

Drawing out the games of skate makes sense business wise since the Olympics has an overlap in terms of the start and end date. Kids who start watching skating due to the Olympics will find something that is ongoing to help them "get in touch with real skateboarding" that also has an aspect of competition to it which is readily interpretable to audiences who are new to skateboarding, parents of new skateboarders included.

Ronnie Creager is going to fuck shit up.

The designation of "icons" vs. "pros" is funny.  It will be really comical if a bunch of people come out and say they specifically stated they won't participate.

Though it could have been a lil shorter and some of the angles weren't the best, Evon's recent street part was really solid. Sucks he lost to a cariuma kook but Evon was a bit of, some days it just isn't there, I can relate.
 To whomever said they should play skate in the Olympics, just no. Some goofy freestyler would always win. Just imagine all the double/triple flips, pressure flips, late shuv's and body varials we'd see. Imagine the gold medalist winning with a dolphin flip body varial. Games of skate oughtta be taken less serious then the batb at this point, not more. Consistency is admirable in skating but not as important as modern competition's suggest and that's where skateboarding and competition don't mix very well.
 
Just think of how many clips of our favorite skaters are of tricks they've only done once or spent hours on to get a clean ride away. A lot of iconic skate photos aren't from makes. Skating's always been about pushing what's possible, not about checking tricks of a list of what we know is possible in a sterile environment.

TL;DR skip batb, watch Evon's street part, it's good, games of skate taken seriously = snoozfest.

I don't mind double flips if the skater in question has run out of normal tricks, or if they are way behind in the game and need a quick comeback.  They are still very ugly though. There should be a rule that you can't win a game with a double flip.

That's a good point

I think that if they want to include him in a fair way while also holding him to his I have no stance thing there are two ways of doing it:

- Make him just match the skaters stance. So his opponent  does a left foot forward 360 flip, then he has to do it left foot forward too. Opponent sets a right foot forward bs flip, he has to do it in the same physical stance.

None of that cringe posturing nonsense in that P-Rod game of Skate with him

I would call it something with inward in it too but the backside ones big heel for sure

pointless trick name arguments are one of my fave kinds of pointless argument.

i would it a nollie big inward, i am fine with fs nollie big heel (as long as fs is emphasized) but 'nollie big spin frontside heelflip' is trrrrraaaaasssssshhhhhh.

At first, I thought the whole influencer bracket was cringe, but now I'm seeing it as that old 'They should have one normal person in the Olympics for context' showerthought that was going around for a while. Most of these kids have got where they are through personality and marketing rather than ability. This makes them, obtusely, the underdogs. Simultaneously, it puts shit in perspective like Yeah, you got 200k followers but you about to get skunkedd down the line by someone twice your age who doesn't even have an email.

Felt bad for Blueberry. Could tell from his pre match talking and first kickflip attempt that he was uncomfortable in the situation. Especially reading that he felt some pressure to do well for his followers. Then he'll no doubt find his way to this forum where he's getting his ass roasted.

I'd you reading this, Blueberry, keep the Blink 182 get up. Took me back to high school when every fucker dressed like that.

That said, fuck the Berrics. I'll watch the SKATE tournament but that's it. Cringe whenever i have to hear anyone involved talk and every time I hear someone reading out the rules all zaney like the only people who won't skip that shit are the folks back home all proud of you for being on the telly.

Same, but it's kind of like that "you cant look away from a car wreck" thing. I know I'm gonna be mostly disappointed, with the exception of some of the icon games, but oh well.

Also, that announcer with the goofy fucking hat asking if the crowd was excited was some next level second hand embarrassment. Yikes.

You canít be like ďis everyone excited about the game?Ē In a completely monotone voice and expect a good reaction. Especially if you do it, twice

I can't kickflip first try either...

And why did the one dude say "My dagger trick is Nollie 360 flip"... Then he does a switch 180 heel...

Pretty sure nollie tre is easier than anything that involves a switch 180.
[close]
I can switch front heel pretty consistently but nollie tres are kinda hard for me.

I guess Nollie is just switch popping off the nose...

But you're still controlling most of the board flick/rotation with your flicking foot on a nollie tre whereas a switch heel you're using your less dominant foot for the flick and pop respectively.

I think the fact I played soccer makes me think of my right foot as somehow slightly more controlled and stronger but maybe that's not the norm.

I was forming nollie tres before I could come close to a switch Ollie though.

Burberry's gigantic feet are a hinderance to his skating, even when he isn't wearing aerodynamic crocs or whatever the fuck those are. Also his kit looks like a low-level thug character from a 1980's beat 'em up arcade game. One of those dudes who comes out of a subway and throws a knife at you. And when you defeat him, he makes some kind of awful distorted yell "AUUGGHHRRH" and flashes before disappearing.

The good charlotte guy was probably stressed but it really seemed like none of those two are that good at skating. But again someone posted the Berra vs Heath game and they missed some easy stuff too so who knows.

I feel sympathy for Burberry. He seems pretty introverted despite the outfit and even if he has 200k followers on IG it probably feels like his own bubble so getting on the mainstream stage like this was probably pretty uncomfortable. Didnít he say in the previous video that he had a rolled ankle as well or something?

In any case, Iím not expecting the influencers to be on par with the pros, I guess itís understandable that some might feel itís a waste to have to sit through these matches but I enjoy the variety.

I just rewatched this... The Burberry kid is actually pretty good. It seems like he just kinda wasn't taking it seriously enough. I believe his whole too nervous excuse actually.

I actually wanted him to win because I fuck with the spikey hair and Good Charlotte style. Although his necklace was truly awful and skating in dunks at BATB is a terrible move. Way too clunky. Get some Emerica Reynolds 3s.

The Sunny Suljic kid annoys me. Seems kind of full of himself.

I used to get all filled with unexplainable anger when I saw his clips, now I kinda laugh at them. And it feels a bit like laughing along with him, because he doesn't seem to take himself too seriously. His IG is corny as corny gets, but he's mellow.

Funny that everyone was complaining that the participants of batb in the last years were skating too good, too perfect almost like robots and now that the games are relatable again people are complaining again. In todays world with endless cool insta Clips and countless mindblowing video parts I like to see that not everyone can do Switch whatever Flips.

Also I think it was a smart move from Berra to integrate the so called influencers and start demystifying them.
[close]

What about them needs demystifying? There's nothing beneath the surface with these guys that needs uncovering; they are the most accessible and vapid within this competition.
[close]

Because often all you see from them is created by themselves so you only see the self created brand. They don't do demos or have to deal with tricky interview questions or team mates. Influencers create this perfect image of themselves without flaws and it is refreshing to see that bureberry e.g. cant pop kickflips
[close]

I just rewatched this... The Burberry kid is actually pretty good. It seems like he just kinda wasn't taking it seriously enough. I believe his whole too nervous excuse actually.

I actually wanted him to win because I fuck with the spikey hair and Good Charlotte style. Although his necklace was truly awful and skating in dunks at BATB is a terrible move. Way too clunky. Get some Emerica Reynolds 3s.

The Sunny Suljic kid annoys me. Seems kind of full of himself.

you think sunny is full of himself but like burberry. holy christ on a cracker

I don't understand those versus trick videos where it's something relatively hard like a nollie tre versus something which seems damn near impossible like the BS One-Foot 360.

Also is that annoying Johnny guy competing this time, seems like he and Sewa are always gonna take it.

most of the pros in their itw would say that the pressure would be so high in this game due to the audience/silence/filming, it's not surprising that average people are not performing well in that setup. I just watched the game with burberry dude and you can see he's got his legs shaking, so i think it's quite impressive what he's been able to pull off in that setup. T
here's a big difference between skating at the park with your homies and performing in front of an audience, being evaluated & filmed. I know i probably couldn't even ollie in that situation.
Sunny on the other hand, a kid actor, is so used to this, he doesn't even care. This is true for contests in general though, people's reaction to pressure/audience/evaluation makes a decisive difference

In all fairness kickflip is the worst trick in skate for me, it's a easy enough trick that i always try to super pop and bone in a game of skate and i end up missing it more often then a hard trick that i don't expect myself to pop a foot high with a perfect bone and catch.

Kickflips are the hardest warm up tricks

I can usually Tre flip and backside flip in a sesh before a smooth kickflip.

I think it's because there's so little going on... In the technique... There's more room for error

New leather shoes also change my flick mechanics. I have a very Dylan like kickflip naturally with my mechanics (nowhere near as beautiful or high), but we do them mechanically the same. I remember when I skated in these Cariumas it gave me Chann flick, and I remember one time I did like a perfectly Chann esque kickflip over a 2-3 foot tall rail from flat, and itís prolly the best kickflip Iíve ever done.

They are just super stressed out. You can sense that from all the game, it's a big deal for all of them. They basically all say the same thing " I grew up watching the battle at the berrics, it's a dream blablabla" so it adds more pressure. Also doing a game of skate in a silent warehouse while 20 people are watching must me weird.

Dude used to be on some like ďland everything perfect and robotic as fuckĒ type shit, like similar to the P-Rods and Mike Mos of the late 00s as far as style goes, just one of those types of skaters, but then got all fat and lazy and shitty out of nowhere. Just one of those cases where I think the industry and all the ins and outs of it just wore him out and and he got burnt out and it made him not give a shit anymore. Well, either that or booze.

Let's update it! Flat tech precision in a park is boring for most.
-ledge or obstacle skate is the obvious one
-hi speed only-tricks dont count unless done over 15 mph
-circus trick only game, any kickflips/360 flips/switch heels etc are not allowed. 
-vert pro only games.  Bucky vs. Rune on flat! 

open to any and all suggestions.

What ďcutsĒ at Craig are we referring to?
The ones where the creeps get weeded out?
Seems like theyíve still got Kenneth on their roster, so you must be referring to the Yonnie incident, yeah? Maybe the Bubble one w/ the homeless guy?
Malto mustíve been keeping his nose clean through theses quiet last few years. Barring a PR backlash, it seems like Craig keeps people on forever. Looking at Crob, Jeron, Eldy, Brophy; you knowÖ all those ďproductiveĒ dudeís that are pumping out footy? Pretty much HALF their collective squads, actually.

I would think that, even since the inception of the Berrics, these types of tricks have been less stigmatized/ "standardized" or expected to be in a standard skater's bag of tricks.

I will always find it fascinating that in the middle of doing a bunch of tricks I could never hope to land in a million years, these guys seem to have trouble with varial flips while my trifling, never-was ass was rifling them off in my driveway when I was 14.

A rule stating no double flips until literally every regular/switch and bs/fs 180 variation of everything is done would be nice - something along those lines anyway.

JFC why

the rules are already like six pages long

I had to look up JFC. I thought you might've meant "just for clarification", but you mean "JESUS FUCKING CHRIST" to which I say, ease up big fella.

I guess the reason I suggest this loose idea of a rule in a hypothetical context is just that I think if you're gonna put rules to a game of skate it'd probably be more tasteful if you had to do a switch backside flip before you did double flips.

I don't know if literally everyone thinks this is a stupid comment or just me considering Malto was my "hometown hero" who should be pro lol.
Thatís why I specified ďmostĒ and not ďeveryoneĒ.

He was skating the same shoes in each event, so part of me thinks batb and xgames were close after his birthday party that he sold tickets to and was just hungover as balls for both events. he looked mad sweaty and shifty eyed, far more so than the other skaters

He gave up on each run when he didn't land a trick and just wrote off his run completely. Since when does he expect himself to win every event? Has he ever won a major contest?

Nothing wrong with your preferences but I would rather watch a competition that involves compelling match-ups between skater's strategies at every attempt than an exhibition of two people running a litany of "tasteful" tricks to determine who gasses out first.

Those good faith basics are a respectful way to stretch a game out a bit for fun but I think your suggestions would end up depriving you of excitement.

cairuma guy should have been called out on so many tricks. i guess in the berrics if you do a backside powerslide and pop a cab as soon as you're fakie it's a 540. dude deserved every pressure variation the little guy had. That mob flip late 180 he was going to try and slide around should get him a few audit sessions if not kicked off.

I know a lot of these Ďinfluencersí suck, but at least they decided to go along and have a go at it. More than can be said for that John Hill guy whoís probably too scared to get found out and look Ďnot as goodí as he likes to perceive on his own channel where he can fully manage what people see etc. Fuck him and the other Braille guy who declined. Pussies.

I also think that people will automatically give this one a view, meaning that it has the potential to be in the top 5 most viewed 1st round vids. So it's a win-win situation for them.
Also, fun fact with Leandre Sanders: I followed Berrics on IG since they often shared clips I enjoyed, but ever since Sanders appeared, they posted like a clip a day of him, milking him for what he had. When I pointed it out in the comments (saying something like: "Why do you keep posting this guy?

The late pressure flip I kina get, but at that point is it even a pressure flip anymore? it's more like a late back foot hard flip kinda?

It's a fakie varial flip, there's no sex change or half cab going on at all, it's just the angle of his body like he's going to shifty but doesn't.

Yeah, the only way that trick would actually have a body varial is if he does an actual half cab flip, catches it, and then does a body varial after catching it. It's very dumb they're even entertaining that his shitty fakie varial flip could be something unique.

Yup. First shitty one was the fakie 180 varial, second one is the fakie tre…he even knows it’s a fakie 180 varial because he states it could be one.  It’s basically shit style.

He’s sort of doing a body shifty…which isn’t anything?

Yeah Chris is a monster. He got tripped up on those double flips but as soon as he got on offense i knew it was gonna be a wrap.

There are 2 skate goats Hank: Leandre skates flatground and Leeandre skates transition. Cariuma's environmentalist ideals could disrupt American supply chains, so they had to stop him from taking this eco-friendly communism to the finals. The CIA took out his balance mid-game by trashing his inner ear with a sonic weapon. When he started falling over while pushing they brought in Leeandre, who was confused by the sensory overload caused by leaving Venice Beach for the first time since he was designed in a test tube.

Berra is simply intolerable at this point, dude's got no honest friends that's for sure.

The goat guy going straight to goofy-ass tricks was embarrassing, shame on you man. Maybe he just wanted to be able to tell his friends "I gave Joslin a letter once" before he got wrecked.

How bout Get Out After That

I recently binge watched a heap of old games and every single game with Berra as a ref or whatever was painful to the point of being unwatchable.

Imagine how sick of a career Leíandre could've had he stayed that vague "whoa, who is this guy?" Venice local. Gone from being one of Erik Ellington's favourite skaters  and likely to get on Death Wish to a Berrics guy. Not only that, they couldn't even spell his name right.

Was gonna second the notion that Le'andre fucked up with the whole Berrics association but then checked his Insta. Solid amount of followers that should earn him some buck. I mean, Iíd prefer if he had kept the mystery alive, posted confusing clips and never talked about his stance, but if the kids love him I suppose itís a viable path to take. Assuming the Berra conglomerate has successfully tapped into the Braille market by now, that is.

I had kind of forgotten that the persona you talk about here is actually the same guy.

That whole PRod game and the idea that he can choose his stance to vary between games is a farce.

Iíve watched enough of his footage to say he could claim being stanceless and can see only two logical ways his inclusion in BATB should be handled :

1. He picks a stance (goofy or regular) as his regular stance and the opposite is deemed his switch stance for the entirety of the games.

2. He matches the foot placement of each opponent instead of their individual concepts of regular and switch. - i.e: Chris Cole sets a kickflip left foot forwards, he does the same left foot forwards . Nyjah sets a right foot forwards bs flip. Then the goat has to do the same trick right foot forwards.

Iíve probably thought about this too much seeing as he got rightly shat on by an almost casual Joslin.

Not a huge Joslin fan but loved seeing him smoke Leandre, that dude needs a serious ego check.

The whole no stance schtick is the weirdest, kookiest gimmick I've ever seen.
Zero footage, 'pro' for a made up brand and making a film about yourself without even having a career first. I just can't fathom it.

I think some Joe tried some ugly ass double heelflips or tricks he knew Koston wasn't great at (hardflips) in the first pros vs joes early on, and I think Koston just fucked him over by responding with some fucked up early 90's pressure flips.

out of interest i rewatched this game (lol, yeah i know.) and that's not really what happened. kid already got three letters and koston none. so he had to make a move and try some shit to get some letters on koston (i.e. hardflips). also koston was the first one to set a pressure flip he didn't make, even though he had zero letters and was not really under pressure and the kid hasn't even set his double heels but did a hardflip and tried fakie hardflip. double heel variations came after koston's pressure flip attempt. but yeah as someone pointed out already, joes have nothing to lose and a lot to prove, in whatever ways. it's death or glory for them. so it's only rational for them to come out of the gates swinging with some fucked up double-unusual-flip-stance-much-rotation-revert-circus-tricks. that's then probably two different things, rationality for the joe and aesthetics for the viewers. whatever. i enjoy watching this shit, even the bad games...

This Berra fuck really gonna try to play off his fumble like it's because they wanna disinfect all the park's surfaces, out of an abundance of concern for the safety of others?
All true Xenites know that with high enough of an operating thetan level, they'll be immune from the affects of the infection.
Everybody else is, by now, aware that COVID viral transmission usually results from contact w/ airborne droplets of bodily fluids (spit/mucus/etc.) and NOT typically by touching shared/common surfaces.
What might/could contribute to spreading the virus though, would be to put a group of people together, inside of an enclosed environment, while an athletic endeavor (read: skating) is underway. But hey, let's just pretend we're sanitizing the joint as a cover for the fact that a bunch of our competitors are declining to participate.
They actually came clean in that very same announcement from the start of the video, but then redirected & started fronting like they were looking out for public health.
It's a fucking online forum, for crying out loud... They can't skip the 15/20 pointless guests & just have the essential staff & talent be a) vaxxed, and b) tested within 24 hours of the battle?!? If the freaking olympics can pull it off on that massive scale, surely these goofs can manage to wrangle a weekly warehouse meeting of about 10 people.

That sunny kid is defo on Scientology.

I remember someone on the /esg/ general posting a link to how deep both Berra and Koston were. There is a site which has extensive data on this. Anyone know which one it is? I'd love to check if Sunny is in there.

Same with his nolllie 360 kickflip. I watched it five times in normal speed and still couldn't see the flip. Then I watched it in 0.25x speed and it still barely looks like it flips.

I am not sure about that. And what kinda bullshit was that last trick? The guy with the long hair seems like an absolute asshole who vibes people out of skateparks. Never understand why people can be so full of themselves. Shit doesn't fly anymore and he needs a reality check.

So the dude's "death trick" or whatever is a sloppy pop shuv? Who'd really call that an underflip with a straight face? He should go skate with the kook who thought doing a fakie tre standing weird was a new trick. Peas in a pod, those two.

 If you pause it you can clearly see the board didn't even spin 90į, it was simply unlevel and he leveled it out. What was up with all the unnecessary reverts too, what a conceited spaz.

From now on Shawn is spelled S h a w n in this household; fuck these cariuma kooks.

wtf are you all smoking.

all of you calling it a pop shuv would, by the same logic, call every impossible a 360 shuv. The wrap would no longer make a difference in the trick.

idk about the name but it clearly wraps before he flips it back over, so it's not a pop shuv.

Regarding the whole "unsportsmanlike" behavior issue, this kind of reaction is overblown and disproportionate. The reaction to this is more appropriate for something like Nickelback lead singer focusing the other guy's board or spitting on him or something. He already tried to explain the trick to him once, and I understood it easily without him having to explain. You all are acting like the participants in every matchup have to go on a candlelit 3 course dinner date after the battle, and yet at the same time complain about all the celebratory hugging after each trick in a video. Fucks sake. No I am not Nickelback lead singer or associated with them in any way, but what he did was hardly deserving of this "burn him at the stake" reaction.

See bobby worst below for an example of worse behavior. Arrived late, battle was supposed to start at 2pm, arrived at 2:07 and his board wasn't even gripped yet, and then coolguyed mikemo cause he can't take a joke about making everyone at the berries wait on him. Are you going to burn him at the stake for this too?

Worrest claps for the dude when he defends tricks and fist bumps/shakes hands with his crew after the actual battle. You see him making a big deal about the competitive aspect of anything in that vid or the actual battle vid? He wasn't like "oh that was a toe drag!" and he never came off as being a spaz imo. Maybe kinda dickish for being late, but who cares. He skated in the event and had some class during the game... It's a big stretch to compare the two dude

I usually dont watch the BATB but seeing the Trocadero and Pierre-Andre announcing in French made my day. It's just so much better to see this happening outside, and not in the sterile confines of a private skatepark....
Also the bonus tricks at le Dome double set were rad as fuck. Giraud seems to have hardlips late flip on lock everywhere which is just insane....the way he adds ollie/pop shove/ollie afterwards....it all looks too easy for the dude. It's pretty rare to see someone doing a trick on that double set and then handling the 3 subsequent stair sets.....

The reaction to this is more appropriate for something like Nickelback lead singer focusing the other guy's board or spitting on him or something. He already tried to explain the trick to him once, and I understood it easily without him having to explain. You all are acting like the participants in every matchup have to go on a candlelit 3 course dinner date after the battle, and yet at the same time complain about all the celebratory hugging after each trick in a video. Fucks sake. No I am not Nickelback lead singer or associated with them in any way, but what he did was hardly deserving of this "burn him at the stake" reaction.

See bobby worst below for an example of worse behavior. Arrived late, battle was supposed to start at 2pm, arrived at 2:07 and his board wasn't even gripped yet, and then coolguyed mikemo cause he can't take a joke about making everyone at the berries wait on him. Are you going to burn him at the stake for this too?

It looks like he was just trying to say hello to everyone. It's like getting to a party, trying to make the rounds, and one friend (usually drunk or something) talking your ear off about some shit. Give me a minute...we'll talk...i just got here.

Shout out to late era Pitcrew coach's jacket.

wtf are you all smoking.

all of you calling it a pop shuv would, by the same logic, call every impossible a 360 shuv. The wrap would no longer make a difference in the trick.

idk about the name but it clearly wraps before he flips it back over, so it's not a pop shuv.



No no no no no... No he doesn't. He just keeps it under control. There's no pressure (scoop) or flipping involved.

When did you start skating?
It's important because I am so sick of people calling 360 shove its impossibles. It is not the same thing. At all.
I'm going to blame the misnomer on the berrics who qualified a 360 shove -it as an impossible in a game of SKATE years back.
You want to see a real impossible that actually rotates on a vertical or horizontal access with the griptape touching the top of the shoe or inside of the ankle? Check Rodney Mullen, Ed Templeton, Alex Moul, Geoff Rowley for good examples.

Seriously, stop calling the bent 360 shove-it an impossible. Claiming this heresy just shows you to be ignorant and stupid.

I knew a kid like this at my old local indoor park who was so bad that if he saw me pull up in the parking lot he would actually run outside and crowd my car before I could even get out. And by kid I mean grown dude the same age as me who thought he was a Berrics character or something.

You can tell EVERYTHING about a person based on whether they allow comments on their instagram posts or not.

lol you guys arguing about trick names..

The other guy could have done the trick same way but he didn't and got a letter.. It's not about what the tricks are called it's about how you do it etc. style and tricks matter.. Sean just has terrible taste.

I usually dont watch the BATB but seeing the Trocadero and Pierre-Andre announcing in French made my day. It's just so much better to see this happening outside, and not in the sterile confines of a private skatepark....
Also the bonus tricks at le Dome double set were rad as fuck. Giraud seems to have hardlips late flip on lock everywhere which is just insane....the way he adds ollie/pop shove/ollie afterwards....it all looks too easy for the dude. It's pretty rare to see someone doing a trick on that double set and then handling the 3 subsequent stair sets.....
As beautiful as Paris is, it still couldn't make up for TJ Rogers cul-de-sac gangsta costume
