People’s Court: Tyler May vs Blake Axelson

Chances are if you’re reading this right now, you aren’t at Mt. Hood snowboarding because there is pretty much no internet to be found in Government Camp. That being said, if you aren’t snowboarding you are probably yearning to get back on the snow and start ripping your local hill. The two contenders in this week’s Peoples Court captured their last season’s adventures on (digital) film and want you to judge them. The one with the most votes wins some Yobeat shwag and a chance at a Banshee Bungee.

  1. what the fuck is with the teenie bopper soundtrack?

  2. Dear Blake,

    Thanks for being some random kid in the park throwing sick doubles for seemingly no other reason than for your own pleasure.


  3. Why Blake?! The music doesn’t do your riding justice. Fire your producer/editor ASAP!!!!

  4. Fuck all y’all dem shits was whack

  5. WOW first trick i knew i was voting for blake.. when i used to work at mammoth i would see kids ride like blake all the time.. having their tricks super dialed in after doing them over and over.. other kid looked liked the kids i would see come on the weekend that thought they were about to get sponsored or something who take 50 tries for each of the tricks landed on their edit. Blake was sooo much better that he could afford to choose terrible song too!

  6. I’m going to start voting for these straight based on the running length.
    5:06, are you kidding Tyler? Cut the first 2 minutes of crappy GoPro footage and give yourself a fighting chance.

  7. well tyler, i enjoy you riding in real life, but that kid had the dub, guess he got my vote, the intro is just kind of boring

  8. swivels vs doublecorks??

  9. i voted for blake just because he had ke$ha, and shes got jesus on her neck-a-luss

  10. Blake Axelson fuckin threw down. God i just wish you wouldnt have ruined that back 3 off the side of the booter by using that ridiculous 10% ramp. Normal speed would have down plenty of justice. Kid killed it.

  11. if you don’t like ke$ha… you can get the fuck out!

  12. Both kids are sik but Blake KILLED it.. Dub on #2 at keystone.. That jump is large!! Sik

  13. Dat nigga blake be free’n boosie

  14. had my vote at the second dudes first trick…

  15. tyler did you really need 5 minutes? no contest in this battle.

  16. 5 minutes tells a story and showcases diversity.. what the hell do you lame asses have to do all day.. Your hear to enjoy your time off dumbasses..

    Solid edit Tyler!!

  17. It is “you’re here” Looks like you are the dumbass

  18. blake cus KESHA IS THE SHIT

  19. dump shits its about the riding not the music

  20. Both edits were pretty whack. Given that they are amatures I dont expect alot, however these videos were all just the same repeated lame tricks on different rails n creativity and an overall lack of style. The music was terrible mainstream BS….both of them. These edits should both be 2 min long.

  21. I don’t know if the kids above me even snowboard and know whats a good trick from a bad one.. But blake killed it.. He has a little growing into his style to do but he’s really good.. I really enjoyed watching him ride for the most part. Tyler killed it for me when I was watching his gopro footage in the starting and looking at all the stashs of pow around him and how slow he was going, It’s pow dude! Point it!

  22. We all have eyes, Im sure we can tell what is good and what is bad. Im sure that only people intrested in snowboarding would watch/vote/comment on something like this….especially on YoBeat…its not like its mainstream Transworld Snowboard or anything.

  23. Good Shit to both yall shreeders i gotta give my vote to Baller Blake his edit was just hands down on point and i lived in aspen well snowmass village for a season and know how big thoose jumps are and the dub cork wasHUGE keystone jumps were always large when i rode them to but Tyler i know what your capable of doing and that your deff better all around shreeder than blake but your edit was wack alot of shit needed to be cut and tossed better edit you would have had a chance with that shit no way keep ripping both you guys BLAKE if you read this get at me i know of alot of way tighter jibs are through out crabondal basalt and aspen [email protected] HOLLA TYLER Keep up that Midwest Steez

  24. I know tyler and he is suchhhh a badass. like seriously this vid doesn’t even do his riding justice. im a skier and i totally respect him… he rocks at riding

  25. Tyler Haymayker desirves this one obviously.

  26. I like the blakes part but she choose the WORST music to put on th snowboarding. KESHA!!
