Broskow landed some clean tricks but nothing amazing. 540 ao topsoul was great and raw but that 540 sweety was :/
Brett Urbas looks like a park rat but he definitely landed bigger tricks and that ao top soul.....soul to 360 soul line was sick as fuck. I really want to see some Bailey footage from the finals.
Brett skated awesome...but what did he do thats not been seen at that park before? The fakie spins were cool and pretty clean, but the grinds were all done already in previous years, except maybe the soul 360 soul.
540 sweat and 540 alley topsoul are all new on that rail, however small it is.
I'm not saying Broskow should have won, more trying to understand what Brett did that was so original that warranted a win.
broscow is smart. he skates in front of the crowd where they cant miss the trick. also, those spins by urbas were gross. personally i wouldn't have counted them unless he was competing against brian boitano.
when I was there, I thought Bailey won, with urbas a close second. Bailey did a lot of hard tricks. Aragon was out to lunch, and didnt land much, but what he did land was "typical aragon tricks". I thought franco killed it! He should have placed higher.
and I want to see more chris smith footy, dude is so smooth!!
Broscow's grinds on both those 540 spins weren't exactly stunning either....
He little more than kicked the end of the rail.
