Eli Williams was the best so far. Guy is so consistent.

Girls killed it too. Marina went hard.

I'd give my vote for Eli and Cookie. Cookie is always fun to watch as he can pull all kinds of tricks from his bag, never know what's coming next. And Eli just cruised through the whole park and throwing that shuvit noseslide, fakie shuv, switch heel as a bonus was ace.

Still need to watch womens parts, only had time to watch Kascis, she rips.

I watched this dope edit of the 99' xgames vert best trick (the one tony landed the 9 at) last night and it had a ton of tricks that didn't make any highlights. Colin Mmmkay did shove it nose slide shove it on vert. Pretty crazy.

given that there is a fs 180 to switch backside 5-0 on a hubba in the opening sequence, I'm willing to bet Vincent Milou is in there....and I'm here for it!



edit: Dashawn Jordan's crooked up the double set freaks me out

Does it count as a 1 minute run if you spend half of it standing on top of a quarterpipe staring at the ground? I reckon I could do some pretty good minute long runs if I can just do 2 tricks with a 55 second wait in between them

Cookie was the best if you look at the whole clip but I think so far Eli Williams had the best continuous run, amazing stuff and he did it pretty easy. It's a better format this year, I like how they weave the run proper into the video and it's pretty cool to have @cliff there to hype them up

he took an approximately 12 second break. you can get 2 - 3 more tricks in with that amount of time. now that you bring this up I think Jonathan Hernandez took a similar approach by going so slow. there are freestyle skaters who go faster than him.

Edit: turns out his last name is Henderson. my bad. my moderate to severe early adult onset dyslexia has been acting up lately.

For me, Eli Williams for the win. Dude's run was flawless, he skated everything, and did not get off his board once.

he was tired from going so hard... you could never do that shit. dashawn is one of the most athletic skateboarders on the planet, if he needs to take a break that means he was busting his ass. he probably could have played any sport he wanted to... yes its all counted towards the full package of a run though and the judges should appropriately dock his mark for it but it doesnt take away from how insane the run is. that is such a weird thing to nit pick. the contest setups are NEVER ideal, why dumb down your big point tricks and sacrifice your chance at winning just so you can appease quarter pipe stall clowns

They never let Cookie win anything, but he's always #1 for me. Great style, unique approach to spots, seems like a genuinely good person.

yes. I definitely could take an extended break in the middle of a contest run. I've never tried because I've been too busy skating but if I put my mind to it I'm sure I could.

jokes aside 12 seconds in a one minute run is a lot of time to waste is all I'm getting at.

Dude cost himself the win, no doubt. Posting up for 10 seconds in the middle of your run is some bewildering shit. I think he got a little fucked over by Clif telling him he had 15 seconds, twice, which contributed to a fucking 20 second gap between the penultimate trick and the last. This whole coaching dynamic is wack as fuck. What a half-baked contest.

imagine if someone did this during their run at Tampa. by 3 seconds in announcers would be like, "alright dashawn hustle," then, "dashawn Jordan about to drop in," - "keep it moving dashawn 😡" - "and that's.... tiiime 🤬"

Sheckler's park is about flowy as you can get, no one's saying he should be throwing in front nosegrinds and flipping in/out of stalls, but it does take away from a run imo when people treat the parks like a golf course by stopping to set-up for each obstacle. Can't stand watching people like P-rod in comps for this reason, yeah he does like 5 - 7 insanely hard tricks but I'd rather watch someone with more flow taking advantage of the whole park.

A nice bedtime treat. Like a glass of warm milk or sleepy time tea. I think this dude took Cliff saying, "pace yourself," a little too seriously. Ha! Dude had killer style though and the 3 flip nose grind at the end was so nonchalant.
