Regular Footers Win at Etnies GvR

As I had written previously, Goofy vs. Regular was going down and it did. And not only that, but it came down to a point where the judges couldn’t even decide on a winner. Wow! I am not even kidding about that.

The competition was so close they ended up settling everything with a two-on-two tag team game of skate. From there, the Regulars took the win. Not sure a game of skate was the best way to settle it though, basically they put the entire hands of a team on two guys? And a few tricks? Not quite what I had in mind for a contest settler. Not only that, but the way they played the game of skate was insane. Probably the hardest version of SKATE possible. Basically anything goes but it had to be done on the designated section. So if someone did a kickflip 5-0 ,kickfliped out, landed to manual and then threw another kickflip out. Then that would be the trick that the opposing team member would have to try. A little to crazy if you ask me.

Props to the regulars for winning. In my book, and I’m sure in many others, both teams won this contest. That and everyone keeps over shadowing this but if you can, get a chance to check the footage of Christian Hosoi in the bowl competition, or should I say “Masters” competition. The dude looks like he was reincarnated into his young self again. Huge airs and the energy of a 20 year old. Pretty amazing and inspiring to see someone of his age throwing it down like that.

Overall, the entire GVR contest was off the hook. Next year hopefully they come up with some other way to settle a tie if that were to occur again. Maybe like a best trick competition or something. Either way both stances killed it this year. Here are the results.
