for all my fellow vert nerds: tony hawk's vert alert 2023 wrapped up this weekend and the contest was (excuse my language) FLIPPED UP! if park is in the Olympics, vert 100% should be too.... the limits of vert skating are still being pushed and vert skating looks better than it ever has. these dude's are absolutely pyscho.

shout out Moto Shibata - that dude is the real deal!!! Jimmy Wilkins, Tom Schaar, Moto, and Damestoy are some of the best vert skaters to ever do it and they're doing it live, right now!!!

Thanks for posting, I would've missed that. Always love me some good vert skating. Not sure how popular it is at the moment but the skill level is bonkers.

Good? That shit was 40+min of non-stop insanity - 30-40second runs of the best of the best. 14yr olds throwing out 900s back to 5s, just crazy.

That said, I was disappointed to not see as many lip tricks. Big air sells I guess.

That was insane, some of those runs were fire. I think Moto should've been 1st maybe,  idk. I find Gui and Paul Luc the least intresting every time, their stuff gets kinda bland fast.

You're right, I apologize for using a lackluster adjective.

Not yet, but it's kinda on my bucket list like running a marathon is for a lot of normies. I got mad respect for vert rippers and frankly don't feel comfortable giving it a go just yet. My local indoor park has a dusty ass vert ramp that still sees a lot of action though, so when I'm ready to commit I've at least got a couple of homies who can give me some pointers.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Big Air killed vert for a few years. Now that they have reached the limit of what can be done on a Megaramp, vert seems to make a comeback.

Great development imho, it's so much more fun to see somebody like Wilkins do a full run than somebody do a 1260 on a mega.

I wonder if somebody will do a 720 cab someday, I remember Tony Hawk saying in an interview that trick is impossible. 

But now Wilkins is doing ollie 540s 5 or 6 feet out.

There are/were a few guys on here who have some skills.

Vert is scary. I never made it past drop-in, backside scratcher, and undecked bs rock. It probably helps to attempt it before 25.

Itís also entirely dependent upon having access to a good ramp to learn on. I guess when youíre good a 13 footer is fine but I thought 11-12í was noticeably more manageable for a beginner.

My sig file pic is me at a parking garage at Tufts University. It was a great winter spot a few years back. And yes, I am the pastparticiple guy. Thanks for the kind words.

this is wild. I wonder if Damestoy lives in France, cause he would feel pretty lonely! Vert riders are super super rare out here....

I never got past dropping in and 50-50's but I kinda wish I had put more effort into it when I was younger. Just floating bs airs looks so fun.

Wilkins' bs 360 ollies look incredible! and terrifying.

oh and since this is a thread for transition connoisseurs I stumbled upon Mitchie Brusco's youtube channel recently, the way he breaks down tricks is amazing. might be considered kooky but I really picked up pointers in there.

Brusco looks comical with those kickflip 9 attempts, lol.
