Winning tricks on contests
there was just a contest going on in my hometown. It was a 10 meter table kicker, pretty lame. the inrun was a total joke and the landing was about 2 meters broad, and about 3 meters long. On both side of the kicker were houses, which made the whole shit fvcking dangerous. (One guy even landed on the side of the kicker and hit the building after it). And the judging isnt worth to call it judging.
I wasnt able to participate cuz of my shinbones.
20 guys attempted at this contest. about 7 or so got down with a straight air. the main trick were 3s.
And heres a list of the tricks at the finals (5 riders):
- 720 (Crash), no chance to land it
- frontflip, i guess it was the winning trick, i dunno the final scores
- 360 (Crash), pretty off-axis but i'm sure the guy didnt want to do that
- rodeo 5 (Crash), no chance to land it
- 540 (Crash), he did about 450
So i just wanted to know, what is the winning trick at a contest in your local area? Just some guys out of your valley or about 40 miles around your hometown.
And not the get it wrong, i'm happy that something like that was going on here. It was directly at a bar, where people go to after the skiing, there were about 600 people and they were "happy" when someone got over the kicker straight.

around here, usually something inverted wins. its pretty rediculous. At one competition in particular, on about a 40ft jump (we have no snow). a friend of mine did a zero spin double twister, it was crazy sick and flawless. another guy did a dspin-ish thing, didnt land it, but still beat the zero spin. and also like freeride team members, or close to it, win, or at least do very well, even if they dont do too well
