People’s Court: Jack Kyle vs Brandon Sakiewicz

Power vs finesse. Park vs streets. Who is more deserving, the kid who is already out there in the streets doing it, or the one who could be the next urban sensation if granted the gift of a Banshee Bungee. You have the power to potentially change someones life here, so vote wisely.

  1. if you love america vote for brandon

  2. Have kids not realized yobeaters dont give a fuck about double corks

  3. Is this a joke? Because I am pretty sure Jack Kyle wouldn’t submit for this contest.

    Anyways, I think Yale and Jack should start a company called “Neglected”. It would only be for the most well rounded riders with amazing style.. that don’t get any love from the industry.

  4. So im voting for the first kid cause it was all bangers and steezy
    the second kid kills it but filming and some tricks were sub par

  5. potatoe here, with my view on things.

    I feel that Kyle is better at snowboarding, but brandon would put it to much better use. But Kyle is older and might be ski bumming and could use anything. I then put my heart and soul and decided on Kyle.

    Sorry Brandon, but you’ll get stuff for free soon enough, you’re already a monster!

  6. Streets… Park… Snowboarding is snowboarding no matter where it goes down.

    Kyle destroyed everyting with style and finesse. He gets my vote.

  7. After judging both on videos based on variations of tricks. style and board control. it was an easy decision to pick jack kyle.

  8. Jack Kyle’s tricks were all cab and backside i fucking hate that

  9. jack kyle! dude rips with amazing style. second kid’s was ill as well.


  11. ya jacks good..but we’ve seen every trick in the park… saggy tits brought that crap to the streets and we like that. plus he’s like 12 and from illinois….brandon wins. but give jack the bungee because that shit is sketchy.

  12. go with brandon jack kyle is to fucking good to be in a peoples court

  13. your comparing 3 minutes of park footy to a minute and a half of street footy…

  14. I remember when I lived Breck and rode the park everyday for 5 months. Then my balls dropped.

  15. Both these are goood. very different tho.

  16. brandon’s part has some heavy tricks in there, but his style hasn’t developed yet. where as jack kyle rides like a boss. sick riding. i’d like to see more from him

  17. #1 had a bit too much heavy head for me, but his riding was savage.

  18. Jack Kyle needs a new filmer. Holy earthquake cam. Brandon needs to pick better songs for his part.

  19. all the kids from minnesota are the exact same im tired of seeing their ok street footage on all the same spots jack kyle kills

  20. Jack kyle doesn’t need a banshee bungee i dont think he had a single street shot in the whole movie

  21. buffalo motherfuckin springfield

  22. but then these black doods came into the song after i posted that…….

  23. honestly, both of these parts would win almost any other week of this, both are sick but im going with jack. kid kills it

  24. the streets arent snowboarding, granted some stuff is pretty sweet that goes down, kyle killed it, and has a better trick bag, he has a more all around talent. people need to start realizing its not all about the streets, pow is ten times better, and some one who can jib well and jump really well is a lot better

  25. Jack’s got style and his tricks were on point.

  26. brandon! He’s only 17 years old, and you should see him on jumps and in the park

  27. Real Tough vote, but I wanna give it to the young gun who seems to be puttin the work in

  28. tail press back 3 down the kink was heavy

  29. Yea Brandon! Kid kills it! This is hard to vote for because they have two completely different styles of riding and they both killed it for sure!

  30. Jack Kyle…that was some of the best riding I’ve ever seen. And honestly, he does deserve the banshee bungee–he would destroy the streets

  31. you can’t be assuming brandon doesn’t kill it on jumps. This is him 2 seasons ago. Still killed it.

  32. riding street rails that clean is so much more work than showing up to some lame perfectly maintained park every day. riding street takes blood sweat and tears and a completely street part will destroy a almost complete park part any day, judging the part not the riders.

  33. Jack Kyle is the most underrated dude in the game.

  34. Stupid matchup. 2 way different styles of riding.

  35. Jack, you kill it man. Next time, don’t use Michael J. Fox as your filmer.

  36. Nice to see some IL riding up on yo-beat!

  37. Jack Kyle is just some rich fuck snowboarder riding top name resorts, vote Brandon

  38. Watch Brandon ride jumps…. He kills it! Doesn’t do dub corks but I mean we all can’t compete in x games. Hard to throw big jump tricks when you’re from Chicago…. All we got is ice and rails

  39. And you can’t say Kyle has a better trick bag, I ride with Brandon every week, that kid pulls out bangers every time I look. Go watch the latest video of him at a park… It’s scary good.

  40. Jack Kyle is the best snowboarder I know or know of. Hands down, not exaggerating at all. Jack Kyle all day everyday. Ride with him for a day, or even just an hour and you will realize it. Earf Jack…

  41. If you haven’t filmed in the streets then you will never understand. Street parts over park parts any day. 100 times more effort was put into brandon’s part and he deserves the win.

  42. Yeah the whole trick bag thin us a little redic, doing a trick in the street us a little bit different than doing one on a rail that was made to be slayed. Brandons part took a hell of alot more effort and time. Anybody can make a banger park edit. Jack has a solid bag of tricks tho, just a little harder to do them on some sketchy rail rather than in a park.

  43. i like that jack where’s baggy shit but doesn’t try to act all thug and all that bullshit. just havin a good time on his board. plus he’s got lots of board control

  44. Did Jack get into it with a gremlinz kid at the end there or was all that shakey azz filming deceiving…

  45. Jack Kyle is by far one of the illest riders on any type of feature I have ever seen. Extremely Driven and humble, his style effrotless and board control on point.
    He’s also got street skills for days, not too mention his pow and pipe talent.. He is part of the OG danksquad familia here in SL,UT tho he’s from Maine originally. Watch out snow bro scene he is on the rise… That is undeniable

    Here are two links too his 08 & 09 footage (shared parts) that he shot when living in SLC. with danksquad and Lifestyles Projection Movement.
    oh ya he was only 17 when all this was shot and he only filmed a handful of times both years. -08 footy footy

  46. Icyhot prob never dropped freeway’s jump line let alone with the guts to spin all 4 ways. balls dropped? so you’re doing man stuff now? im sure every core skater is very impressed with your rail tricks on that board attached to your feet

  47. If you don’t vote for jack i’ll find you and kill you slowly…666…i’ll fucking kill your whole family…jack kyle for life fuckin’ longboard faggots.
