It’s long overdue but here is Part 1 of the Best of 2011. We promise you wouldn’t have to wait as long for 2012 to come out.
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.
“Now that it’s cold and wet here in Vancouver we’ve finally had time to go through some footage from last summer. Giants Head Freeride tops the list of our favorite events. Three days of freeriding down one of the sickest hills British Columbia has to offer and to top it all off there is a race on the last day. Stoked for this summer.”
Brian Elderkin is Canada’s King of Standup. Check out his style as he uses the whole road and high speed carves/slides to control his speed.

Brian “King Brian” Elderkin has awesome standup big man style.
Skeet skeet bang bang. Billy Bones.
Tom “Meatball” Edstrand designed the Evo, co-founded Landyachtz, and was world champion in ’05. He’s still shredding.
Prince Dillon and JimZ after the jump.
The Maryhill Freeride is what skateboarding is about. Endless skating with friends at a timeless location. It may not be the most intense hill, but when you throw 100 plus skaters down at once your heart is sure to start beating fast.
Being the stand up guy he is, King Maryhill Rat Dean Ozuna took the surplus cash from the event and put it towards helicopter flight time. It’s nice to see an event at Maryhill where the event perks grow with the rising number of skaters.
