Philly’s Backyard Park


We’re not judging, but it seems like people who are this into snowboarding might have wanted to consider attending college somewhere other than Philadelphia. Then again, make due with what ya got, right? The Temple University Snowboard Club got it done in the name of the Rome college jib park contest, Ima Better Jibba, and their entry proved to be highly entertaining (there was fire!), so check it out.

    Dear ft collins. You guys put together a wonderful edit. You got the babes, you got the booze, but your missing the key ingredients to a great edit. BUMFIRES Broken glass landings and Crazy hood people. but we dig ur edit.

    Haters will hate, 4 days to truck in the snow, 40 hours to shoot and edit. We had more fun than a drunk girl at an open bar, and were still riding it.

    It’s not a sponsor tape, we don’t care about competition, we just ride for fun…bummed to see others out there that feel superior in the sport. Maybe try soccer or persay “the knitting olymipcs”. Regardless, the amount of effort that was made to get this rolling could almost be compared to solving our nations stimulus package.

    Props to everyone that helped with this and the railjam, and the nearly sleepless nights in preparing this edit in two days from just a dirt lot.

    I give it to wvu for their riding, it’s not bad however as it has all been said above they have the fortune of getting snow way more regularly than here in philly so in order to even enter this little competition we had to use all of the snow left from our railjam on campus. Now WVU I ask this why make a controversy out of it if we’re all out there to do the same thing ride our snowboards, make a video and have some laughs… or at least I would assume and hope that we are.

    I will also put it to them with this, the name of the competition is Ima Betta Jibba a competition to build the best backyard jib park and to be honest you guys have a single rail and a box; on top of that you also fail to catch the views between both videos. TUSC has 1,902 as of the time this was posted not to mention it was only uploaded at 5am monday the first after the editing was completed at 4am, while the WVU edit has 1,250 after being up for a total of 13 days. I’m not saying this to belittle anyone here I’m merely stating facts about this competition and about what’s going on.

    I also did hear that TUSC invited the WVU guys up to their railjam so I’m sure you would’ve been able to ride that set up, I say get along and have some fun.

    I’m still giving it to the IUP gringos for backyard superpark. You’ve presented a lot of good evidence Lens Flare, but I assure you that no one from WVU looks at Yobeat besides me. The rest of those guys have NASCAR races to watch. There are no criticisms coming from us.

    Last time I rode with temple kids I watched them consistently skip rails to 360 off the lips. They got em’ dialed in by the end of the day though.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating on your set up, your situation, or the effort that went into it. Props on that. Just saying your busters. Just saying.

    I hope Rome sends enough riders to satisfy Guidos girlfriend, as half the local boulder kids already have! Lol! Just kidding. But not really.

    People like you make me sick. Just enjoy the sport and don’t turn it into immature confrontational subject. By doing so, your words psychoanalytically proove your insecurity as a human beign and a source of regression that you should really go seek therapy for. Best regards to everyone, and enjoy this awesome winter.

    I’m sick of your psycho-Freudian analysis, doublebanger. The sport IS an immature confrontational subject. Snowboarding and I are not growing up anytime soon. The only thing thats growing up is in my greenhouse. Have fun soulboarding in the streets of brotherly love bro

    Hey TUSC, this video is dope. Looks super fun, I dont see anything like this coming out of the PSSC? Oh wait, maybe that is because they are all too damn cool and scene to actually progress and enjoy snowboarding. Keep on hating, PSSC, while the rest of us surpass you in skill and intelligence, maybe one day you guys can be on our level.
