How much do you think Berra paid to get 2 of his riders on this?
[close]

I think there will be even more this edition, because Alex Braza is one of the guy behind macbalife and also the euro TM for Cariuma.

Skategoat in there too, eww

I have to say that this really kind of bums me out. There's like 5 Cariuma robots in this edition. I don't really care if they scuttle the Dew tour but this contest used to be legit

i think doing a manual trick, esp. one that involves fs (or bs) 180 in, down the ramp and having the other skater in opposite stance doing the same trick up the ramp instead is a little unfair or not really comparable as the latter is much much harder. so it sucks that this becker guy did that trick when playing eniz as an opposite stance guy. but whatever.

Not thrilled on the amount of yucky Cariuma riders, should have thrown Gustavo Ribeiro in there with his visor on as well to make things even more cringe. Fuck it, they should have just like hired clowns to cartwheel around the contestants and held an impromptu circus in the plaza.

All my money on Carlos.
Levi might be able to beat him and he's a really nice guy, but I can't stand watching him anymore. Cursed cariuma type stuff. He was at my local park a week ago and did crook to every flip out for hours.

Carlos going to duck out like he did at the last BATB.

Didn't Gustav win the last couple of these? Or was that something else?
Is it true?  Or did you read it on the slap message board?

The highlight for me was seeing a tech Brazilian guy skate a Zero board at MACBA IN 2022.

But yeah, that was a fun game.

Caraio/ Carai. Brazilian word for dick, but it's used the way you guys say fuck.

Blake Johnson wasn't really on my radar until I started watching these King Of MACBA contests. I'm embarrassed to admit that initially I considered his style a bit too clunky/oafish or something wildly incorrect like that- but goddamn this dude has definitely won me over. He's got such a deep bag of tricks executed with a no-matter-what commitment level and his style is something incredibly unique: aggressive brute power accompanied by a focused precision and finesse rare for someone of his build.

I'm excited to see Youness Amrani skate. His part in 5incher has that amazing Hand Clapping Song by The Meters.

Also, much like Alan, I get stoked whenever I see a sick tech skater on a Zero board.

I mean, it’s all man-made mate, central Barcelona isn’t a granite formation carved slowly by the winds of time.
