has more to do with your overall max vertical height + most peoples lack of willingness to practice switch ollie. tiago's vertical is just way higher than most skaters, its probably comparable to olympic atheletes. it only takes you like 3-4 years of skating to reach your max height ollie, there is actually zero reason you cant do the same with switch, its just very few people are willing to put in the work.

i neglected switch for 20 years of skating until finally this year decided i am going to do it. could not switch ollie up a curb at the beginning of the year.

my biggest ollie recorded on skateboard is 32" (highway barrier) so im not quite half way there yet but pretty close... hoping by next year can get to 75%.  but yeah for me to improve that 32" ollie would take a lot of work. it sounds like a pretty weak ollie compared to world record of 45" but i actually have a pretty decent ollie lmao just shows you how athletic some of these guys are

I love Tiago but his switch ollie flex was lame-o. He has so many more tricks in his bag!

The 2-try format of this series is awesome though.

He probably knew he was about to look silly (who amongst we fair lads, wouldn’t?) but went for them anyways.  I respect that.

true, you can tell, both of these guys wanted to win. Thiagos trusts his insanely good pop and that is all he needs to win ... bnut damm, I wanted more flatground-tricks from him. his fs flip after his sw ollie was a thing of beauty.

Look silly for having an insane pop? Get the fuck out here, plus his defensive game was on point he almost had every justin trick, meanwhile the other dude needs to practices more basic skateboarding… Should the guy only do tricks that his opponent knows? On the other battle a dude pulls a nollie heel down the big3 against a little dude that already passed on the nollie and I don’t see anyone crying about it.

This is a battle, nobody goes to a battle with weapons that they are not comfortable with and NOBODY enters a battle to lose specially when there’s money on the line.

So stop crying and start appreciating the most beautiful trick in skateboarding, an Ollie!

When I saw the pairing I was worried he might get kicked out in the first round because Sommer is insanely consistent (and I want to see as much of Tiago skating as possible, no offence to Justin). Tiago did what he had to to win it. Still made him look like a total dick though.

That's my issue with the "any obstacle counts format", guys will stick to whatever they excel in and will just trade letters. There's much less back and forth between the skaters, ie both battling out 1 ledge trick like in SLIDES / GRINDS.

Still entertaining, but I would put rules like only 1 landed trick per obstacle per skater to prevent them from working within their comfort zone.

Also, insane how these guys are doing huge tricks 1st try down the big 3. First a 360 flip, now a  FS Flip like it was barely an inconvenience.

People mad at Tiago when Justin only skated the stairs.
Also Tiago stuck everything Justin set - Justin wasn’t close to Tiago’s tricks.

Given that Tiago's probably the best in the world I would have expected some largesse from him I guess.

I just felt kind of sorry for Justin when he had to try that sw ollie and sw noseslide. Like I know I ain´t got it but I have to make it look like I try and not look too stupid.

But I´m not mad at Tiago. It´s  just the way he skates and that ollie together with the sculpture drop earlier from Petar already made this a million times more entertaining than all of batb combined.

Tiago wasn't flexing - he was doing what he is doing best.
Basic tricks as macho as possible. And I love it.

may Justin Sommer is under your guys radar.
this match could have been the final one. Justin is really, really good.
Both Tiago and Justin would have the potential to win the whole game.

So Tiago was in need to use some "unfair" tricks he knows Justin couldn't do them..
Justin have played his card as well - he absolutely know not to do a 360 flip down
the 3 stairs - because Tiago is more consistent with treflips then with fronside flips.

Be aware - all Tricks Justin have done - Tiago was near to get them...
I really like the format  - going all over the full plaza -showing all possibilities of MACBA,
and your own creativity.  And both Justin and Tiago are great skaters.
really looking forward for the next rounds.

I’m a big Tiago fan but his approach kind of rubbed me the wrong way tbh. Yeah Justin only skate stairs but he was doing stuff that Tiago or anyone else for that matter would have a chance at trying and/or landing. Tiago was doing huge pop shit which for Justin were actually physically impossible to execute. This became obvious right from the start so when Tiago just kept going back it it just takes any of the competition right out of it and repeatedly causes Justin to feel foolish. Just seems really tone deaf and a bit dickish to me. Hopefully Tiago wasn’t doing it on purpose. As others have said “anything is game and it’s a competition” but again knowing full well your opponent literally lacks the ability to jump that high and then just repeatedly doing it over and over is fairly distasteful imo…

Perfectly summed up my thoughts on it. It's cool he can pop that high switch, but sort of misses the point. I felt the same way about the dude doing the nollie heal down the big 3 against Petar for the final trick when Petar already made it clear he can't physically even nollie down it earlier in the game. Was a dirty way to end the game IMO.
