I'm a fan, it's similar to when the Berrics had the 'Run n Gun contest'
Best 45 second to 1min line you can come up with wins.
Seems to be hosted by Sheckler
May the best man win!

all of the clips on the red bull site. I love contest but for some reason found this boring. Maybe because shecks part was so weak. At his own Dojo.

^ The whole thing really isn't super exciting, but Ishod's last trick made me gasp in disbelief and made it worth it.

That black-and-white clip of Taylor Kirby breathing should win. I think they forgot to put his name in titles the way they did with Sheckler, or something. It's funny how out of place that clip was.

obviously expected Ishod to be good but was surprised by Jagger and Roman

why did CJ, Leandre, and Ronnie Kessner not qualify?

Reluctantly watched all the runs on the Red Bull site. Expected it to be a blowout by Shecks but his was kind of tame. I'm always team Ishod but IMO, Kirby and Midler had the two best lines.

Not to derail this thread but are we getting a full length Deathwish video soon? I'd appreciate a Kirby part asap.

Now that it has its own thread im bringing this opinion over here...

"Don't ask me why( mainly for ishod) but i watched those Sheckler Red Bull runs as they were recommended on youtube, it was so beautiful to see that disgusting sack of excrement Jagger Eaton not wearing my beloved Vans anymore. He appears to be wearing these garbage "Cariuma shoes"  mentioned above in Leondre thread. Berra, Leon, and Jagger right where they belong on Cariuma !"

They should've had a rule that you're not allowed to get off your board. Otherwise it's just doing a bunch of tricks in a skatepark

This contest is more like "engineer your ideal Tampa Pro run". They shouldn't use the phrase 'line'. Especially since it was filmed like a skatepark contest. The Run and Gun was much more of an actual contest about a 'line', and even then people would get off their boards.
Warm Up Zone. Let's watch some skateboarding videos.

i want to see a contest for longest and best line. you're not allowed to get off your board, and when you fall, your run ends.

Sheckler did two rocketflip boardstalls on the same spine in his run?! So sick.

Iíd pick Taylor, he didnít get off his board in his line.
Ishod was a fun watch but he got off his board twice.
Sheckler has some cool tricks but had 2-5050s
Milder had a solid run but not switch or nollie
Zion did a 540 transfer that was cool but also no switch or nollie

They should just give that to Busenitz for his tampa run and his line at 3rd and Army

weird how some of them can't finish a run in one hour but destroy the contest where they have some practice and just 2 runs or so.

Fletcher holy shit...."just gonna cruise" he says and instantly hits the biggest tranny to float a massive ollie on the hip!
growing up with Christian Fletcher as a dad could be an explanation. Has to be insane.
anyway he gets my vote for sure, although I'm not sure I've seen everyone.
just 2 things: 1, how did Zion not die on that hang-up on the first alley-oop transfer??
and 2: I liked Jack Fardell too.

Greyson rips so hard. Biggest, smoothest airs, just floats up there.
I think that was christian sitting by the big quarter pipe.

Who the fuck names these things? Soulless indeed.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

Ishod is THE goat so he gets a pass but even if he wasnít itís still justified. After an hour of not just straight skating, but skating trying to do hard shit you get hella winded.


He mentions being tired here @ 5:45.

https://youtu.be/nWOGMfBsJ7k



Edit: Iíd have voted for Sheckler for sure he if got the kick flip back lip on the spine like he was trying before he switched it up to two kickflip board slide transfers, did a fake nosegrind or something instead of just a 50-50,and got the tre flip a little cleaner but like I said itís an hour of basically straight skating trying gnarly shit so I donít fault him for going with a line he knew he could get vs a better line that he couldnít land in time.


Edit 2: I voted for Kirby. Even though it was sketchy that switch tre at the end sealed the deal for me.


Edit 3: Graysonís was sick too. Skating fast as hell,  that HUGE kick turn where he almost hit the ceiling, and I cannot believe he  was even trying the speaker nosepick. Gnarliest thing of the whole contest.
