The Survey Says...

To the two people that have darkslides on lock, congratulations, you ought to be on your way to +7 Mutt status in no time. Personally, I think late shuv-its are hella fun. We all win when we face our guilty pleasures. Can anyone think about a more atrocious trick than the double 360 flip? Will Billy Marks' secret weapon, the triple kickflip, become a dreaded must have item in ones' bag of tricks (he made it look ok, real talk)? Whatever happens, I'm all for tricks that only flip once, and for full disclosure, I've never been able to flip my board twice in my life. A way to go to the majority of voters who couldn't hate on anything; way to essentially vote "Present." Ah yes, the age old question. I say, if the equipment is available, I'm going with the beer bong every time. I'm no good at shotgunning anyways. And yet another question, when is some marketing genius going to introduce the shotgun ready can? I'm talking a little foil tab in the appropriate shotgun location; ready to rip, no keys, butter knives, or thumbs necessary. While it seems like it would only last a year or two until outraged politicos legislate against it for it's bingey qualities, it would be fun while it lasted.

Edit: Jumped the gun on the last poll, but the writing is on the wall for the beer bong.

I'm with you, beer bong goes down so much more easily.

Shit, Mike, I thought you meant an actual SHOTGUN. Like blow a fucking intruder's brains out shotgun. But since I now know the context, Beer Bong. Sorry to fuck up your poll, buddy.

I want to write in pole jams. It sucks because I actually like them but man, to much lately. They've been completely blown out. Whole video parts consisting merely of pole jams!!??!! I will undoubtedly continue to do them though. It would just be nice if they still felt good to do.

Yeah, Sherman has a legit double flip; it's not like they aren't out there, but overall they just aren't looking tight.

Very true. I will agree that most double flip variations look ridiculous. Mainly I just wanted to show some footage of Ian Sherman.
