    Default mirko vs. Qtip [Game of S.K.A.T.E.]

    This will be the thread for the game between mirko and I, tricks will be posted and discussed in here. The rules aren't set in stone yet, I'm waiting for mirko's feedback but here's the gist of it:
    - We will be setting two tricks at a time.
    - A letter will be received for each trick that isn't matched.
    - We will have 2 days to set, 4 days to match.
    - Tricks must be relatively clean to count.

    I'll be setting first, I filmed my tricks already, just have to wait for them to upload to vimeo. I apologize in advance for my camera quality sucking... I'm filming from my phone.

    I had never actually landed a switch late flip before. I could do them nollie so I figured it wouldn't be too different, and I actually found it easier switch.

    once you got the feeling for the trick they are not that hard, landed 3 yesterday but fell of the board after.. for not even trying this trick before it's pretty good I guess

    alright, it finally stopped raining and had a dry hour and could finally film my match and set...
    but I dont have any time to edit and upload it right now... quite in a hurry right now!

    just in case you already want to match I set a fakie 540 bigflip and a late varialflip or backfoot varial flip! (as revenge for that switch lateflip... took me alltogether about 2 1/2 hours to learn it

    and damn, I completely lost my forward flips, all looked like varial flips -.-
    but I got a real one in the end..

    vid says more than words,.. will be up tomorrow!

    Haha I have never even done a regular late flip, a late varial flip is going to be tough. By fakie 540 bigflip you mean the board turns 540 I turn 180? Or am I turning 360?

    Triple post? Yeah.

    I just filmed a fakie 540 bigflip and a back foot varial flip. I wasn't particularly proud of either of them but they weren't too bad.

    I might try and get a better back foot varial flip when I go film a set, probably not gonna re-do the fakie 540 bigflip though, I don't find those that fun haha. Also, I have no idea what I'm gonna set, I'm just gonna wing it.

    Ok so, instead of not skating because my knee hurt, I decided to skate a stairset... and then spend like 3 straight hours trying to backside flip it even though I was having an off day and not even getting close. The good news is, my knee didn't get screwed up. The other good news, I landed the backside flip. The bad news is, my nose cracked when I landed, so I just filmed a quick set because my board is really close to breaking. I apologize for rolling off frame so quickly, muh bad. Switch and regular tre:
