Real Snow, state of the art Street
 
last day to vote in round one

Bode Merrill vs Frank April - X Games

so nuts, street has gone to a whole nother level (again)...personally i don't care a whole lot about the vote, just to see all the great vids and what these freaks are doing

Did you watch all of the videos yet? Everyone put out great parts.

Helgason does a tre flip to lip to shuv out :dizzy: I know its more a novelty trick but still mind blowing. He also does that double frontflip off a wall ride.

I don't know if he has the best part, but I love Frank April's style, definitely one of my favorites to watch.

i did see all 8, and vote..if i had to pick right now it would be Bode, kid is nuts

of all riders i count these guys as the biggest cajones, big pow lines are one thing, but rodeos to boardslide on a concrete 30 step staircase are quite another

Bode certainly has the best ender of the 8 in my opinion. I think Jaeger Baily does a rodeo to board too but it was nothing compared to the one Bode launched.

April and Louif Paradis are my favorites to watch because of their trick choices and spots. Both have a sort of skateboard style imo. Overall, I'm going to say Bode probably has the best part of all of them though.

I haven't watched the parts yet but what separates Bode from a lot of the other "street" riders is that he'll slay a big line in addition to the tricks he pulls in the street. To me he's an evolution of guys like MFM and JPW who had that ability also.

CassMT 01-14-2014 02:53 PM

looks like April beat Bode, that was a surprise....i only got 2/4 'right', haaa

Krato 01-14-2014 03:20 PM

I'm not sure what the judges criteria are, but if jaw dropping or suprising is in there I think Helgason will take those categories. The other contestants you can guess what they are gonna do when you look at their line. He is just retarted.

April beating Thompson right now is a joke. There are 3 tricks in Aprils part that I can DO. I couldn't find one trick I'd even ATTEMPT in Thompson's. The level of difficulty is so much higher by Thompson. His part is f'n beasty. I can't believe April is up by 20%.
