People’s Court: Lionel Simon vs Zack Normandin

You’d think that in the summer we would be getting a lot of submissions featuring all of the urban slaying that happened last winter, but apparently you guys love riding park. There is nothing wrong with riding park as long as you are having fun, you have a friend that can hold a video camera, and you know how to snowboard better than a 7 year old. The two competitors in this week’s battle fulfill all of those requirements. Vote for your favorite so they can be a walking Yobeat billboard in their hot new shwag.

Lionel Simon

Zack Normandin

If you think these guys suck and you are way better, or you’d just like to be part of the People’s Court, send a link to your video (on vimeo or youtube, please – videos hosted on other platforms will not be be considered) with your name, address, size and a little bit about yourself to [email protected] If you’re chosen for the battle, we’ll send you an email when it goes live. Each week, the battle winner will receive a prize from the YoBeat Store. As of February 2011, the video with the single most votes each calender month will also receive a Banshee Bungee.

The People’s Court is brought to you by:

Mandatory Disclaimer: Battles are open to any amateur snowboarder. As long as you are not getting paid by any brand, you are eligible to compete. You may choose your size, but not style (prizes are given away based on availability.) Videos should be submitted by the rider, not the videographer or your asshole friends. But whatever.

  1. lionel looks like he went through a bit of an identity crisis this year.

  2. zack all day

  3. lionel mustve been pissed when he put his gear in the dryer and shrunk 5 sizes too small

  4. zack fucking killed it!!! but lionel wasnt bad at all!!! i think this was an unfair contest

  5. i voted zack on account of i thought that back lip was switch. then i reiwatched and realized he was goofy. kid’s a really awesome ripper. f/s 360 on, such a rare trick. really good tricks, filming, and music. VOTE FOR THE EAST

  6. oh, and what was this filmed with?

  7. What park was Lionel riding?

  8. @slappy, at 1:20 that was a fs 270 swivel, not a front 3. zach’s part was still sick though.

  9. Lionel was still good, but Zack was fanastic.

    • Lionel rides at Vars ski resort in France. Voila!

  10. first kid had absouttely no switch game his backtails looks like backzeaches. second kid sold me on that front 1 pretzel 3 out on the big dick rail at loon.

  11. lets be honest here
    zack shit on lionel

  12. if ur being honest,LIONEL made me want to fucking PUKE,his style was ugly as shit

  13. zack fuckin killed it, kid is still young to. saw him riding alot this year and was always slaying.

  14. zacks style is dipped in buttaaa

  15. only kids from the east and midwest do 5s off of rails. once your out west you will spend your time riding a real mountain instead of learning gay rail tricks. zack killed it.

  16. i think this was supposed to be the rejected edits post

  17. lionel lost it when he twixtored a small stalefish.

  18. zacks back five out? Not perfect but somehow, very pretty. One point for you fine sir.

  19. sheeeeeeeeeeit niggas be gettin destroyed

  20. I thought lionel’s was all right, but his pants weren’t tight enough.

  21. there is literally no competition here

  22. zack fuckin kills it everyday


  23. Didn’t specialy liked Zach’s one but Lionel looks so ridiculous with his suuuuuuperrr sloooooww moooo on a 1meter high stalefish and outfit changes that I voted Zach…

  24. Outfits do not equal style. Wish you kids could learn that. And in the style dept. Zach took it all within the very first trick.

  25. front blunt same way laser beams

  26. Inside lionel’s brain:




    Zack gets my vote, for riding like a man, at loon, and looking like just one person, Dom Luza.

  27. It seems that snowboarders are gay these days. “Dude your dress does not match with your new haircut.” Fucking bitches, Zach has my vote because of his skills, not for his clothes.

  28. Awesome. Glad you guys liked my stuff. is my official site.
