  7. Emerson Says:

    Kev because wake!

  8. Kevin Calvez Says:

    Emerson-> i don’t get it

  9. Emerson Says:

    Kev you can compare cable and boat! take a look on the angle of the line maybe rope! whenever leo ride good! so Kev

  11. Kevin Calvez Says:

    Well, in my opinion inside out pokes using the wake are way easier that what leo is doin (which is using the pulley to get higher) without any wake… Besides he’s goin probably higher than any other inside out pokes you can see. I mean look at leo’s video again, his board is above is BUTT!!!!
    That’s just insane, i’ve tried hundreds of times to poke like that in his hometown cable, and its impossible, he has the secret…

    LEO IS THE MAN!!!!! look ENRIC DOSTA spanish ‘mierda’

  13. Emerson Says:

    c pas easier c different! gracias para the link cool

  14. Reed Hansen Says:

    Good contest but… Evan Gambetta takes it in my opinion.

  16. John Haile Says:

    I’ll give Leo the fact his butt was under the board, but I like Jordan’s and Evan’s more because I think their front knee is more locked out and their rear knee is so bent. Wheras the other guys were bending both knees more.

  17. OTT Says:

    LEO all the way!! Sorry! but that is MAD cable PeeOPP

  18. darcy swain Says:

    matt edwards fo sure

  19. darcy swain Says:

    matt edwards for sure

  20. Matt Rodgers Says:

    Matt for P.M.!!!…………..(Poke Master)

  21. Matt Rodgers Says:

    I didnt say that ^^

  22. Nick Says:

    I would have to say Evan or Jordan for sure!! Leo uses the cable too much, just tosses the board in front of him and lands off the back using the cable to pull back on.

  23. Gaspard Wake Says:

    vote for leo yessss

    No way!

    I poke Leo

  31. guy bro Says:

    leo’s is super sloppy. matt edwards is all the rage, i would let him poke me anyday!

  34. The Boss Says:

    I’m not saying that whatever Leo just did was bad, but I don’t think that it was actually a poke.

    More of a frontside shifty. Plus, it never really got flat.

    Evan for sure. Legit

  35. zip Says:
