you are pretty delusional if you think only a make can be printed, cover or not
Just ask any photographer, you just use the best photo ( and i don't feel like they picked the right one here)

It doesn't look like he cleared the bench (posture, position of the board feels like it's descending too soon, he seems too far from the end). i don't see any fisheye distortion or weird angle that could make this one a make.
I'd love to be wrong, that would give another perspective

The trick is legendary but it's not the correct photo imo

I'm calling into the bank and jam onto bench. $100.

I'll message you when the footage comes out. Feel free to do the same.

What's your call? Do you seriously believe he cleared that? It's clear he lands about a foot short.
I have a hard time believing mike burnett okayed a cover for an ollie land into bank and bench. Are we talking that specific try from the photo? I don't think he made that one. But I do think he made one (ollie the whole bench).

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

Now that i am stoned enough I think I can see it. the way he did it is shifty and it acutally makes sense with the way he does an ollie like that on transition. thats why it looks like he is on a weird trajectory but he is actually still on the way up basically or just at the peak. you have to imagine he is hauling ass that is why it probably seems hard to believe. hes basically just started his forward movement in the air at this point. the bank kind of sends you a certain way that you probably wouldnt expect but its deceptively steep so it kind of sucks you back in naturally

T-Funk does seem to have cat like reflexes and being well aware of that, but this is insanely high rolling. Not quite water tower level, but we're on our way up there.

This is a bridge...
[close]

had the water towers in mind to - the bench ollie could become a classic cover like the towers.
The Towers are even more simple everybody also non skaters understand how deadly that spot is
 - and nobody ever touch that spot again - which gave that spot a extra gnarly appearance.
May the most iconic cover ever.

But China banks is a different game. - this is one of the most iconic spot ever- since 40 years every Pro and kid visiting SF skate that  spot - and frontside ollie at least to me is the first go trick on a steep bank spot. BUT NOBODY EVER
thought about going over the big bench. Most of the people (at least me) struggle doing a frontside carve over the short bench.

I terms of comparing this to the water tower ollie, I was thinking about how dangerous this is. Mark that I'm only stating, that we're on our way up there, and your point that no one else ever touched to water towers differs it from this one.
The danger I consider, is that he's going mach 10, riding up a steep ass bank to fly in the air. With the speed it will take to clear the bench, chances are that you would get a wobble going up the bank, aiming to get up flying in the air all ready. He could've fallen over the top of the bank trying this one. It's insane in my mind.

Considering all of you talking about how this might even be a make or not, if you look at Eli's carve, he get's down behind the bench a whole board length before it ends. Chances are that T-Funk does it in kind of the same way, and it might not have been done quite in the way you'd imagine.
I imagine him stretching his feet real far out before landing, carving down behind the bench. Maybe a slam where his calf gets caught on the corner of the bench catapulting him off sideways over the top of the bench.

I've never been to the spot actually. Isn't the bench positioned like a foot out from the bank? In that case, considering him landing on the bank and getting back on to the bench would be ridiculous..

OK now this makes sense, seeing how much room there is to land behind the bench without having to clear it. He doesn't have to clear the bench, just stay on the bank and carve out whatevers left. Still amazing considering that simply carving this was an Ender.

He had to have cleared the whole thing by that caption but I donít see how the hell you would get the speed for that just pushing. Seems like a weird spot for a motorcycle tow in, maybe he used one of those bunjee slingshot things.

He probably ollie or dropped in from the top

Iím sorry but anyone doubting he cleared that is just stupid. Thrasher wouldnít use this as the cover if it wasnít a make, neither some weird ollie into the bench. They literally have it on the description saying that he cleared the whole thing. They also know people gonna wait for footy to prove it. I hope someone gets the 100 bucks.

I think itís pretty safe to say he did a high speed carve over part of the bench, snapped a fs ollie and skurted around the end of it. That thing is no joke i really doubt anybody just aired the whole thing, i donít even think thatís possible

And as someone said I think cover bails are long long gone. Ones that come to mind are Pennyís front blunt, and Marianoís switch shove nosegrind. Those were in the mid nineties. Any others come to mind?

cant remember where i saw it pointed out(twitter maybe) but i've seen like a JFK investigation into Dane Burnam's cover not being the make.
Which cover?
 I think photos that aren't "the" make still get run. As long as the trick did get landed. Or sometimes there's multiple makes and maybe the best photo and best footage aren't from the same one

He's definitely taking off from pretty deep in the bench, he might still be going up in the cover shot

I don't understand these statements.  If he rides up the bank, ollies over the bench then lands back in the bank then he ollied the bench.  It doesn't matter if he carves into it or not.

If I had just heard he Ollied the bench that's how I'd assume he did it but the photos shown look like he is way too high way too early to just skip a Ollie land and carve. He may not clear all of it but it's going to be the majority

He has to clear all of it or he slams into the bench.  And possibly dies.  Dude just hauled ass and ollied the long bench, that's all there is to it.

I don't think anyone is saying he didn't ollie the bench. I'm just trying to wrap my head around it, since he's at such an odd height for where he is in relation to the bench.
