Yapple Dapple Game of S.K.A.T.E. Game 3

Yapple Dapple Game of S.K.A.T.E. Game 3

Yapple Dapple Game of S.K.A.T.E Game 3 happened on Friday 7th April.

The March game had been delayed as it fell on Mothers Day and then the following weekend was Wet, Wet, Wet. So as soon as the bank holiday Friday looked to be sunny, we put it out there about having a Game and bingo - it happened! Thanks to all those that got involved!

For this game we opened up the old part of the skatepark, so this included the banked hip, rail, quarters and wallride behind the bowl.

As the skatepark was busy this also meant that there were a few moving targets to avoid!

We had 8 players and it was great to see some of the Southfield Youngers getting involved this time. With the University closed this was a Locals Game and split into 2 games of 4 players.

Game 1

Game was the Foundlings, Ash, Tezza, Sam and Charlie.

Charlie took the set after a game of Rock, paper, Scissor and quickly ran away with the game. Turns out Charlie is the king of the Ollie and set a series of tricks involving his Ollie ability that couldn't be matched by the others. The other 3 did all attempt his sets though so props to that. It was a good game on a sunny day!

Ultimately Charlie triumphed with him only taking an S throughout the game.

Game 2 

Game 2 was a local affair with regulars to the game Jake and Dylan as well as Jude and Callum.

These guys decided the person setting the first trick with a board flip, as my reporting skills are as good as my judging skills, I have no idea who won the set!! The game though progressed very well with all players Getting to S.K.A.T. before finally the winner coming through as Jake. 

Along the way there were several tricks thrown in on transition which were superb including Jakes Smith, sex change, body varial revert... again my reporting skills mean I didn't write it down and it boggled the mind at the time. I also particularly liked Dylans Rock Fake on the steep end of the wall by the bowl, nice!

Champions Play-off

 Jake set the first trick and to be fair went easy on Charlie who was now playing with a previous Game of S.K.A.T.E winner. The game progressed quickly with Charlie picking up S, K and A before conceding to Jake. Good sportsmanship from both and again it's great to see all the skaters pushing themselves to try new stuff!

As always the winners went away with some prizes, Charlie took runner up with a Tote bag, T-Shirt and Freshen up kit. Jake snagged a new Powell Deck!

Thanks for all that got involved!
