Game of S.K.A.T.E Game 4: Highest Ollie!

Game of S.K.A.T.E Game 4: Highest Ollie!

So I think we missed a month with Game of S.K.A.T.E, not 100% sure as there has been a lot going on ;0)

Having a feeling that the Game of S.K.A.T.E was getting a little stale I decided to make it more accessible to everyone by removing a certain amount of skill and adding in a measure of 'send it'... This basically meant cooking up a cake of who can Ollie the highest!

If you are reading this and don't know what an Ollie is then essentially it is the trick that opens the gateway to hell and devil planking trickery of all sorts. Olling involved 'popping' the tail of the board and then using the front foot to level the board in the air, you are defying gravity and able to fly! So, once you can ollie, you can pretty much ollie as high as you can jump... lesson over!

I built a rather sketchy looking device for measuring height and took it down Southfields to see who would be 'up' for it (Pun intended).

We had a few down to play including Jake, Baily, Ravih, Charlie (Who I thought would win!), some random dude who had a go a couple of times! We also had 2 BMXer's that both sent it at full height; one even had a doobie on the go?!

So the winner was Jake, who I think got to 28 inches high. Jake won a limited edition YD Obelisk deck which he very graciously gave to Charlie - top lad!

As I've said before in my other Game of S.K.A.T.E blogs, I don't keep score very well and very loosely organise these things! In fact if there is anyone that wants to get involved and help then I'd appreciate that! 

In summery, the weather was sweet, the concept was simple and everyone had a good time! No Idea how to give points for SOTY to this so I'll jus make it up with 10 points for the winner, 5 for second (Ravih) and 3 for 3rd (Charlie)! Thanks for getting involved and see you soon!

So using my haphazard scoring technique and poor memory, this is the table of points for Skater Of The Year - I also awarded Baily an extra 10 points for his super hippy jumps and the gnarly slam he took doing a Rock-Fakie on the Jersey Barrier!
