international S.K.A.T.E contest
So heres an idea for ya! It would be great if you posted your opinions in a constructive way.. Rather than just telling me its "dumb/gay/terrible" ore whatever.. Last year I had some contact with grindhouse and usd, they both were very positive.
So keeping it simple.. the rules are: you sign up for an online video contest, each week you need to deliver 7 tricks (1 trick per day perhaps hehe) on different obstacles.
The following obstacles are: miniramp (1st week), flatbox (2nd week), curb (3rd), airs 4th week (can be funbox, pyramids, quarterpipes, spines, but no gaps okay), downrail (5th week).
So people, how does that sound? Any other suggestions? To many weeks? To few weeks?
The contest will be judged by people voting over the internet.. If I get a positive feedback from u guys now ill go ahead and talk to the sponsors. Last time I was promised some skates and prize money, so we will se! One thing is for sure: The more people that sign up, all the more likely it is that we get some nice prices!
It would be great if we could keep things a bit organized. So if your positive, just write down your name and email and sign it with positive to the idea ore something like that. If your not so positive, just state your reasons =)
dude just be honest withyourself.. you cant compete in anything in life, thats why you spam shit like that over the internet.
I can't do anything in life...that's why I do this.

First of all you dont need to do the airs on all of theese obstacles, its just an example on things that you can do it on. If you only have a spine, fine do 7 seven air tricks on it =)
but still you make a good point.. I had a similar question in the rollernews forum. Ill post the answer here aswell since it pretty much covers the same issue.
"yeah youre definetly right, it could prove to be a problem.. I was also thinking that maybe its good to restrict it into one month (that is 4 weeks) so maybe get rid of the funbox and just do the curb? Ore vice versa? It sort of depends on what the majority of people think. Another solution could be that you ore only judged on 3 obstacles, thus leaving some "breathing time"/respite (is that the proper word in english?). But overall are you positive? "
finally id like to say something to all the negative people who apparently find it way to hard limiting themselves to CONSTRUCTIVE critisism. If you dont like this competition format and you cant specify why. Why not just scout the internet for something else, why waste your time hating on things. Seen from my perspective, its just sad.
