It’s back to the wakeskaters for this week’s Photo Battle. On one side you’ve got a black and white re-entry shot from behind the boat, while on the other side you’ve got a river spillway gap with the winch. Two totally different worlds, same rad sport. Vote for your favorite and spread some holiday shredding cheer.

  2. Teleprompted Anthems Says:

    Do the Jason Keller and talk with your hips…

  3. WadeR Says:

    how can you see those lavers

  4. Jason Hudson Says:

    The rider is Ben Peirce out of Lake Norman, a young ripper with some serious chops. If you can’t support the photo, support Ben stomping this re-entry varial flip. Thanks all, Thanks Alliance!

  5. Kyle Says:

    Looks like a 3 shuv not a varial flip?

  6. Jason Says:

    oops… I think you might be right, good call. for more from that day visit; I promise there is a varial flip somewhere in there.

  7. Edgar Perez Says:

    sorry for the threadjack

  13. James Says:

    haha Sawyer you can see me in your photo in the flannel taking the very photo that is in this photo battle

  14. Seth Fry Says:

    That no comply is one of the dirtiest tricks ever thrown on a skate…took a lot of imagination.

  15. casey jones Says:

    it doesn’t take a lot of imagination to copy an existing skate move buddy, I think you are trying to say it took a lot of nuts to do… not imagination. Being imaginative involves original thinking.

  16. james Says:

    who woulda thought a no comply/footplant on a wakeskate…definitley out of the box casey jones

  17. casey jones Says:

    I wasn’t trying to be rude, I just think that any skate trick turned wakeskate trick is expected… inventing new tricks specific to wakeskating is where it’s at. The no comply is badass, just not original… nor would a 3flip or even an ollie impossible (again, badass but not original)…It is about progression my friend not regression.

  18. James Says:

    Well I sure as hell don’t want you progressing our sport….ha

  19. casey jones Says:

    fair enough I tried to be civil, have fun re-inventing the ollie…. tool.

  20. Max Says:

    Hey casey jones go kill yo self. You dont know where shits at. How in the world is a UGLY 3 shuv original or wakeskate specific my friend? Every trick ever done in wakeskating is gonna come from skateboarding!….tool.

  21. Jholiday Says:

    is this even a competition??? re-entry 3 shuv vs. footplant? winch > wake all day
