    Default GrindboxGameOfSkate Sign Ups

    Rules:

    1. All tricks must be done rolling.

    2. Grindboxes must be 10 inches in height. No less. Video proof is needed for the first time you use a box, aka a closeup of a ruler next to the box. After that, if you use that same box again, you don't need proof. If you use a different box, obviously you will need proof of meeting height requirement.

    3. Length of grind can be any amount setting and matching. You do not need to match the length of the grind. The only exception is don't try to play off a millisecond of a grind as a set/match. That's just unfair. At least get a good grind in.

    4. When matching or setting, the trick must be done fairly clean. No toe-drag, the skater must be moving, with both feet solid on the board. You cannot stop and then tic tac away, you must land and roll away.

    5. When you are selected to set, you have 3 days to set a trick, if you fail to set the trick you will be given a letter.

    6. Players are given 3 days to match the trick. Later in the game we can reduce it if we want. Also, not matching or setting constitutes a letter.

    7. No trick can be set more than once.

    8. When you match or set a trick, post it up in the thread called “GrindBox GOSII Tricks Thread." This makes the tricks easier to locate instead of sorting through millions of pages of discussion.

    9. No freestyle, cavemans, bonlesses, or no complys. Or any variations.

    10. When you match or set a trick, while rolling away or walking to the camera, you must make the sign that is shown below, in front of the camera, any tricks without the sign will not be included.

    11. Time Zone is US eastern standard. Players should try and figure out the corresponding time to the time limit of a set or match, as to reduce any confusion.

    12. Must have at least 100 posts as well is a light green bar of rep. That's pretty standard for any game, just thought I'd add that in real quick.

    *I will pick the order as soon as 10 people are signed up, as well as the hand sign will be posted, as to reduce anyone getting "early" tricks before the game starts.*


    Trick Limitations:

    1st round: No flip in OR out. Only variation allowed is rotation out (eg 50-50 180 out). All stances allowed, but please use to a minimum. It's first round.

    2nd round: Your basic flip trick in OR out. Not both. Basic being kickflip, heelflip, shuv, and fs shuv. Rotation is allowed in AND out. The only rule is that you can NOT rotate in WHILE flipping (eg fs flip nosegrind). You can however flip in, rotate out.

    3rd round and up: Do it up, everything is fairgame
    I will be playing in this game, as well as hosting it. But any dispute over whether a trick should count/not count will be ultimately up to the majority vote. And extensions will be up to me, but keep in mind that just because you ask DOES NOT mean that one will be granted. Anyways.....SIGN UP and let's have a fun game.

    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    ^Set your deck sideways up against it. Your width should be somewhere between 7.5 in and 8.5 in. So if you can just film that and i can see a good 2 - 3 inch gap, you're cool.
