One person does a trick. Another person attempts the same trick. If the trick is landed, everyone goes crazy. This is a Game of Skate.
A simple concept but nevertheless one that has seen a great deal of success over the years. It’s hard not to enjoy the simplicity of a Game of Skate and the potential it has for some incredible flatland trickery. These games also inspire those watching it, and even playing it, to try tricks they had never even thought of, in a display of sheer technical ability and consistency.
