    Default I'm really digging the Pros vs. Joes BATB tournament.

    I'm excited to see what talent finds their way into the brackets. They already selected one guy - Chris Chann - out of LA.

    I totally agree. It's a really cool idea, and the four they have chosen already look like they know their stuff.

    I want to see some pros get wrecked. Think any new sponsor deals are going to come out of these seemingly no name "Joes" skating with all these big name guys?

    I'm betting some kids are gonna get flowed, or at the very least have their name out there. I'm really bitter about this whole thing.

    Ghettobirds you definitely have a chance to win this haha, plus you're already in Cali. Why can't you join if you don't have an iPhone?

    They are choosing people through the nike sb app, which is only on the iphone. So might as well call this Pro's vs Rich Bros BATB

    I don't get why people think you have to be rich to have an iPhone. If you have a cell plan they really don't cost much money at all... same goes with any smart phone, really.

    See, that's pretty cheap. I'd be happy with a 4S... Well, I mean if I wasn't an Android person.

    So you like the fact that great skaters that probably dont use smart phones, or use other smart phones that are not iphones are not going to be able to enter?


    Also Tommy, that was a dumb thing to say, just use someones iphone? What? You have to be constantly playing people in skate, uploading tricks and winning by using the app. It is going to be pretty troublesome to be active on an app that is not on YOUR phone. And I would not buy a new phone just to use an app if I already had a phone... getting into a new contract just for pro vs joes, that sounds smart

    Pretty much everyone owns a smart phone, and tons of people own iPhones, going through the Nike SB app is easier for them, and it's advertising for Nike. And I never said anything about getting a phone and contract just for Pros vs Joes, I was just saying you definitely do not need to be rich to own an iPhone. Sucks for the people who wanted to take part and don't have one, but oh well. Shit happens.

    I tried using my friend's phone, but of course he got tired of filming me (and rightfully so, hes not my filmer and it's not my phone) and seeing as I'm 17, I cannot sign for a phone plan myself, and my mother refuses to allow me to upgrade my phone. I have an EnV2 keyboard flip phone at the moment. I can't get 500$ to get an iphone 5, and i fear if i buy a 4, the firmware will become obsolete soon anyway, sort of like how the first three iphones are now just ipods that can make phone calls.

    TL : DR I can't afford an iphone at the moment, but i have a dslr thats going to waste because apparently it is absolutely integral that i use an app for a shoe company i no longer wish to support.

    I'm still so pissed that Instagram only allows smart phones to post even though I now have a smartphone I'm in no hurry to join Instagram.

    I'll agree that Nike is stupid and the Berrics is becoming stupider. My only argument is how easy it is to get smartphones. Haha

    Sorry... I don't have the app and I don't know how it works, I guess that was dumb.

    Just got the app, it's actually pretty neat, I'm probably gonna go crazy on the games of S.K.A.T.E there.

    Too bad my only apple device with a camera is an iPod touch 4G I'll be uploading some grainy videos...
