is this true? thats pretty rediculous in my opinion.....i dont know about you, but i think misty 630 over a log onto a box to 270 out is a little bit tougher than a blind side switch up to front side switch up
misty 630 on is ridculous. Then to have enough control to 270 out shows that had to have been somewhat well done.
I can do double switchups on boxes and I don't even like rails

word, if you've seen the rail in person you know how steep it is and how hard you hit the ground coming off of it. LJ's was obviously nasty, there's no disputing that, i just don't understand all the complaining about this when you all could have just gone and voted for it in the first place... but either way, erik didn't just do another double switch up, it was a ridiculous double switch up...
wow, if its true that a same way double switchup on a down rail without any kinks beats LJ's misty 630 on (so that means you go blind twice and flip forward onto a rail) over a log, 270 out, its a sad day. im not really a fan of flips onto rails, but it is really hard, a lot harder than a double switchup.
Both tricks were ridiculous in their own right. I didn't see LJ's misty 630 in person so I can't pass full judgement on how sick it was, but seeing the double switchup in person was absolutely mind blowing. Erik slid the rail right to the end after two switchups.
Both deserved to win. Honestly, a double switch up on a steep ass handrail to harsh landing is fucking incredible. Like I can't imagine even attempting that... and same goes for LJ's misty 630 over a log onto a box. They're both burley as fuck but honestly, I think John should have won just because I'm not a fan of dancing on rails, but damn it, I think the double deserved it.
if skierman dosent know him then he cant be that famous
i was gonna see it, but then skiierman said he wasn't
Yes! I don't know how many of you have actually seen the footage with the way you're talking about the double switch up. It just wasn't on a flat rail or anything like Brandon said, it was on a steep, urban rail.

yo ol' PC buddy, I thought this guys ttrick was techer. But I have to hand it to the guy who dub swichuped the urban. That is suuuch a steap rail. And look at it really closely. This Erik kid rolls into it and right as he feels the lock, drapes his foot over so he can set into blind switch up. Sets extra hard so he can keep the rotation and then drapes again for the frontside. All sooooo quickly. That is a tech trick for that rail. Props to both of you. But Eriks was preettty tech as weell.
who cares? there really wasn't any award for the video contest, they didn't even mention it at IF3, both tricks are dope but in the end nobody gets anything so does it even matter?
On a side note the awards part of IF3 was a complete joke... Definitely entertaining to see drunkards making fools out of themselves, but I saw zero point in it all. It would have been more productive at the movie theater.
gnarly ass urban rail? looked to me like there was full snow on one side and snow on the stairs....ahmets 270 to switch, switch lip pretz switch up, or switch to switch should've beat that double switch up. (ahmet didnt fucking MOVE on all those shots) PLUS no one has ever done a misty 630 to rail, let alone a 270 out of it. and before you say "no one ahs ever done a double switch up on urban" taylor felton and witt foster i know have done it, taylors was with stairs on both sides.
