As usual these idiots use all the wrong camera angles. So annoying.

And making them wait 30 seconds in between each guy.

And allow fan twitter vote to award who wins.

I just wanna know, what happened to that dudes face??

With judging, I have a feeling it would have been McNeil, Bereman, and Cantrel in that order. No disrespect to Cantrel though, he threw it down and absolutely deserved a medal!

I think X Games is fading away. Worst format of judging, they need to have a couple of different jump types so they can see who can really whip and not just of a steel ramp. They also need a camera from in front one from behind and side on so they can see the true extensions of the riders whips

They still have X Games?

I'd like to know how jaco strong didn't win best trick

Agreed about the camera angles. It wasn't until after the contest was over they showed views from behind. The slow mo clip of Beremans one legged whip was insane

Wow that is some boring tv! I made it thru about 15 minutes of it.

And the judging for best whip sucked. TB went completely backwards and McNeil was completely upside down. Cantrell should have been third

Yeah the guy who won skate big air was also sponsored by weed maps. That company's blowing up, as is the whole weed industry. It is what it is. I stopped smoking a while ago cus I have shit to do.
For the whip comp, they need two camera angles. One pointed at the riders back as they take off, and one from the side. When they use the cam from above, you can't tell shit. So dumb. They need a slo-mo cam from behind most of all.

Not going to lie had the TV on all day while x-games were playing in background... couldn't get myself to sit down and actually watch cause no interest in it anymore. And gnarwhip you can still indulge and get your things done lol. But right on I respect the stand point brother gotta handle your business first

Jacko bike was a Yamaha with green front end right? I liked how it looked like a old kawi but I think it was yami. And I think it was yami green plastic. Just wondering if anyone else noticed/knows

Im pretty sure it's a yami I don't think he has ridden much else besides the yamahas lately anyway, but with no actual backing from Yamaha and a good pay check from monster I'd say that's why it's black and green with a dirty bike monster logo on the shrouds

It was a yamaha but he did have the new kawi number plate and fender in the bike. Threw me off for a second until I got a good look at it. Goes with the monster theme and didn't look to bad

I was entertained. Can't deny that some nasty whips were thrown and I can't help but get excited about that. I think tom parsons might have gotten screwed with bad camera angles cause he usually throws it as hard as anybody but maybe he just had an off night

You know it's possible to pay fake twitter accounts to "vote" in a scenario like this? It's common and not difficult to find "bot" services. Not saying anyone did that but failure by design.

Tyler should have won, but I am pretty biased.

And yes, it was an absolute shit show of coverage. Made me actually appreciate the Nationals coverage.

Bereman
Mcneil
Cantrell

saw it this morning, after you guys

Thanks for the heads up

I enjoyed the step up competition quite a bit. Crazy how steep the take off ramp is. Some of the landings were brutal. Also didn't find the best whip very entertaining. Those guys in the best trick do double backflips so easily its insane.

All freestyle is spoiled by a director who knows nothing. Stick on camera in the back of the stands at the side, and one at each end , press record, go home... all the sick whips you see on youtube are filmed from the side , or side, front/rear from a distance... trying to zoom in up the riders nose achieves nothing.
