    ~~~~ Game of BLADE 2019 ~~~~

    Excel for clip links and standings https://1drv.ms/x/s!AqxQQ2mdfBhWd_xnLYJR1utY210




    The rules/guidelines:




    Please read the below rules & suggestions:

    Be prepared to check this thread at least once a week, especially if you set a trick within that window, as you are judging.






    Clean slate for setting tricks, but I'd discourage setting repeats intentionally.

    Each Monday, the next user sets their trick.

    Each trick set will have a two week window to post submissions by Midnight two Sundays after being set, and if it's not posted by the deadline you get a letter. With B.L.A.D.E. you're out.

    Post your submission as soon as you get clips, don't wait until the last minute!

    When you set a trick, you are the judge if any questionable submissions don't count. Inform people ASAP so they have a chance to submit a better clip! If the clip submitted by the person setting the trick sucks by general consensus, you may get a letter setting your own trick and failing to do it properly.

    Pay attention to when you're due to set! If you're late to set (by midnight Monday your week), I'll set a random trick by Tuesday midnight, your turn gets skipped, and you get a letter.

    If you call a switch trick, those setting and those matching need to prove it's switch eg post a clip doing it natural too. Complicated switchups involving a switch trick are discouraged as doing the switchup natural may involve some of the elements being switch...

    Open to "within reason" spot specific tricks eg 540 a stair set, fishbrain a quarter pipe, sweatstance to gap, grind a kink rail, grind up a rail... don't make it too specific or people will bitch and I reserve the right to veto. If you want to make a spot specific set, it's better to ask early.

    Attempt to set tricks within the recognizable canon of street skating. Cartwheel is out, for example. I was talking about setting a butt slide in a previous round, which too far outside of the norm. Better to ask early if in doubt.

    Tricks typically get harder as the game goes on.




    First set will be posted by me, Monday April 1st by midnight, due Sunday the 14th.

    Next set is smiley, set Monday April 8th, due Sunday April 21st, etc




    Post with interest to be added to the list. People late to join can try to catch up on as many tricks as they can the first time they submit a clip. Don't join late on purpose to abuse this...

    Well, board has been back up... let's get this back on track. RichieV is due to set tomorrow, or he gets a letter and I set.

    ao mak to soul due today, I think it's been 3 weeks?

    3wind due May 26th

    list updated, can accept backdated IG or youtube submissions if people did tricks but didn't post here



    I miss blading. Ortho Dr says in 3 weeks I can begin lifting again, which sounds like the first steps toward being comfortable doing skate moves again. I've rolled around cautiously twice, which was great, but is probably pushing it.

    Definitely an unexpectedly bad one. It's not worth it to me to risk falls and injuring something else if I skate in a sling or something. I tore my MCL in 2011 and took 4-6 months off, won't be surprised if this is similar, which sucks, lots.

    ¯\_(?)_/¯ getting an MRI eventually and I don't want to do tricks until I can use my arm near 100% range of motion and lifting without pain. Expecting months at this point, injury was 4/26

    Didn't make it to the kink I had in mind for my 3 wheelers but will try this week. Nice clip AJ

    My set is meatspin 540 aka 3wind: forward 360 into a 180 rewind or forward 180 followed by a 360 rewind

    ie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqT2OH3JDOI#t=4s

    many solidly kinky frontsides https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBHSdyU9-ds

    I'll go out and do the front side tonight if it'll still counts. There is a new rail but I don't know if it's the construction is done yet

    I wanted to do the Frontside...but I'm a park rat. Also, there are no chill kink rails in Richmond Va. The one rail I would consider is on my switch side and that ain't happening
