Title: Drehobl To Fakie Contest
Post by: Schmitty on October 11, 2009, 11:53:14 PM
The Drehobl To Fakie contest (http://thrashermagazine.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3008&Itemid=38) ends this Friday, October 16th. Be sure to send in your best pivot or 5.0 to fakieā€”Dan's saying now, that he might have a second and even a third prize since the response has been so good...

My anatomy has proven to me that these so called pivot fakies are just smoke in mirrors.

So count me out  >:(

I suck and didn't get one. And I said I'd enter every single video contest. Is that Studio 9 program any good?

I second more contests like this though!

studio 9?

Thanks to everyone that DID send in a clip. Dan will be looking them over the next week and we'll have an announcement soon.

studio 9?

It's like some cheap video editing software they had advertised last month. I bought another other one, but it only works on my roommates computer, barely. I guess you get what you pay for.

Post by: Third Times a Gnar on October 24, 2009, 02:33:17 AM
Eby, how does it feel to know that Camel Dan looked through dozens of pivot-fakie clips and chose YOURS as a top 5?


Title: Re: Drehobl To Fakie Contest
Post by: elastic back on October 24, 2009, 09:08:07 AM
haha, pretty awesome, but to be fair, i sent in 6, but one of them was a pivot fakie on the same barrier in philly that some other kid in clip did.

anyone know where that last spot the winner skated is?

Is there going to be a Halloween costume contest?

feeble to fakie contest?

Is there going to be a Halloween costume contest?
Slick backed hair, and dracula cape.
5050 a massive rail.

Contest Ideas:
-best fly out
-Who can kickflip a 20 inch wide board
-Highest flat ground ollie
-sickest hippy jump
-Ed Templeton judges an impossible to bluntslide contest
-backside 360's
-film a line using the cheapest Wal Mart or K Mart board

i think osiris/corey duffel are doing one...but that is photo only. thrasher should do a video one!

Contest Ideas:
-Highest flat ground ollie

that is going to be too hard to judge from video.

-Ed Templeton judges an impossible to bluntslide contest
-backside 360's

all 2-5 entries will be sick, but they usually want a lot of people to enter. good ideas, but not feasible.

-film a line using the cheapest Wal Mart or K Mart board

that is just asking for trouble from the industry. companies won't be too stoked on thrasher supporting walmart and kmart by making people buy boards from them for the contest. though...perhaps best line on one in the store!

how about:
blunt fakie
polejamzzz
best use of rocks
gnarliest drop in/roll in
skate/build a DIY spot

EPIC!

Post by: skatenerd on October 26, 2009, 10:33:00 PM
Gnarliest Drop/roll in has a lot of potential
Best line in the store sounds good too. Fat grind on a Razor flatbar with a spongebob board

I want to do a Halloween contest, I was going to have Dean do one on Flicker, but it's getting late for notice... We'll see if I can crank out something today.


Title: Re: Drehobl To Fakie Contest
Post by: Paper/Scissors on October 29, 2009, 08:29:09 AM
I can already see it now. Grab that bitch, push like a bat out of hell down the aisle, ollie over a garbage can or big aerobic ball, powerslide snake some hill billys than blunt stall kickflip out a moving shoppin cart! Can't wait!

Best use of a turkey.

Best original trick.

Most Gonz-like line.

Best trick that includes a no comply.

Create the best [insert shoe company] colorway.

Retro clip of the week.

Best recreation of a Thrashin' scene.

Post by: Paper/Scissors on October 29, 2009, 07:08:20 PM
Best original trick.

I remember when I first joined these boards and I was just starting out I suggested an original trick contest and you kooked me out to kingdom come, telling me that would be impossible. New tricks are popping up all the time, check it yo:

I'm pretty sure everyone has one wacky/rare trick in their bag.

I think a Huf contest would be sick. Best ollie-only line. Or a Busenitz best hill bomb.

so were the top 5 supposed to get prizes? i still haven't gotten anything...


Title: Re: Drehobl To Fakie Contest
Post by: Schmitty on December 16, 2009, 09:18:49 AM
Nope, it was just for first place... Dan was thinking to do the top three if there were more entrees. Ill work on getting another contest together. Eby, you are always in the top 5 it seems. Nice work!

it's all good, i usually give my prizes away anyway. just wanted to make sure i wasn't missing anything that i could pass along.

and like i said before, i am willing to throw down some naysayer boards for a contest on here...but i know some companies pay to do these and i can't afford that yet. one day.


Title: Re: Drehobl To Fakie Contest
Post by: Hefeweizen on December 16, 2009, 01:18:49 PM
Let's just do one ourselves, dude. Like I said, I'll throw down a TNT shirt for the prize. Or we could do a 1st, 2nd and 3rd thing too. No offense to Thrasher, they gotta make a living, but we can guerilla the shit out of a contest.

i want to but the biggest thing is getting it into the junk drawer. otherwise only the people that come into the forums will see it. i can't really afford to give out any more boards but if i know that it would make the homepage and so many people would see it, then it would be worth it. a couple hundred people might see it in the forums if just done there, but thousands would see it on the homepage. make sense?

Of course it makes sense, gotta get that cheddar. I just want to enrich the Thrashboard community.
