King Brian and Nate the Great. The push that started it all, word is they still joke about it.
Racing by nature is competitive. As the skill level rises, the competition gets tight in every way. With close racing, more racing incidents and controversy are bound to happen. On race day, glory is gained and upsets happen but after all the racing, riders leave the controversy on the track. One thing that hasn’t changed over the years is the camaraderie all the skaters show and share. No matter how much the sport has grown and things get blown up on the internet, all these racer are buddies sharing in skating. There is a lot more to skateboarding then racing.
Predicting who’s going to be on top after a day of racing is always a gamble. Maryhill for example, the top 96 riders were within seconds of each other for qualifying. Here are three clips that have ignited race incident controversy, but never left the race course among skaters involved.
Matt Rae and I. I definitely shouldn’t of thrown Matts board of a cliff, we’re all cool now.
Kevin and I Whistler. When your racing skateboards sometimes your line isn’t always what you thought it was. Its all good Kevin. Lucky I didn’t throw your board.
