People’s Court: Jordan Soohy vs Ian Macy

Growing tired of the Park City edits? This week we move across the country to Seven Springs where these two dudes love to shred some park. Both edits feature a lot of jibbing and grinding for you to pick apart, judge, and comment on. And I’m pretty sure these guys are BFFs so this should get interesting. Vote for who you think killed it harder or for who you think sucked less. Either way, the winner is gonna win some rad Yobeat gear and a chance at taking home a Banshee Bungee at the end of the month.

  • Dinosaurs in Outerspace fully endorses both of these gentlemen, and also firmly believes Cooper Thomas couldn’t drink more than 4 beers if you paid him.

  • beartooth

    I’m pretty sure Ian put both of these together

  • scummit co

    Jordans got some goood tricks with that easy style

  • 3 Beers is my limit, Ian and Jordan smanged it this year

  • john

    jordans part was better, but i give ian a ton of credit for filming and editing all year and still getting footage that good,

  • SD

    Jordan Soohy rocks my world

  • i voted for jordan because he’s sooooooooooooo dreamy. he has the fingers of a concert pianist!

  • fuck you

    good battle. both should win

  • wider stance

    first dude wins on nosepress through the S alone

  • poochdawg

    if they didnt film in the baby park i could vote on this

  • Do either of you boys play shortstop?

  • 989

    jordan loves them zeachs

  • bob saget

    It looked like Ian macey stole some 13 year olds board….thing is tiny on him.

  • pete wast

    im better

  • Josh

    damn good battle.

  • nose press through the S-rail was fuckin sick

  • AB

    finally something worth watching

  • G

    Gotta give this one to Jordan since he actually hit some jumps and spun (granted, those jumps were 15 ft. max) and Ian, you look like a fucking idiot with that 131 board and maxed in stance, consider getting a board that fits and work up to some other tricks than methods on the small side Brighton jumps (even the bigger option isn’t “big”) and a hucked backflip on a 10 foot jump)

  • jealoushate

    Both of these guys shred for sure, but if youre riding seven springs,brighton,and windells parks all the time you should be at least as good as them

  • james

    both those girls rip!

  • karnkarn

    Jordan. I didnt want to vote. Both of these guys rip! Great Great matchup

  • I ride a 153 and I’m 6’2″ I might not look pretty when I sboard but I’m sure having one hell of a better time that you!

  • HAA

    wow both these suckers have a stance skinnier than my grandmas.

  • john g

    ^ i think your snowboarding looks pretty damn good and a hell of a lot better then all of these haters. this was a close battle i want to vote for jordan for his np through the s but ian had a couple clean 270s so i just cant pick

  • isthatrevorb

    The past two battles have been good.

  • Uhhhhdanana

    NP through the S was beastly but had to give my vote to Macy. Both men deserve a solid handshake, cold beer, and hot blunt though.

  • rob reynolds

    they bothsuck and the stances are rediculous

  • terb

    park footy yehhhhh

  • when did snowboarders stop going big? this is little kid shit

  • rob

    say what you want about stances but there is no way you can say either of them are bad snowboarders. niether of thier snowboarding looks bad either. good battle this week, my vote goes to macy for that front 270 backlip. solid part from jordan as well though.

  • alex

    i voted for jordan. np on the s and switch lip 270 on the down c won it in my opinion

  • All the shredin was super sick, My mouth dropped on nosepress through the s.. That’s beastly. Giving this one to jordan. Also stay tight and close when your filming fish.. It’s not that difficult to keep a camera somewhat steady.. Nothing worse then shaky out of focus fish filming. Get wit it! It’s 2011.

  • joe

    Jumps? They don’t have those where you ride?

  • herpderp

    Both were pretty much the same in as far as technical difficulty and skill goes.
    The editing on Ian’s was worse. The random shifts to black and white were dumb and there were several inconsistencies with color on the colored shots. Didn’t really care for either riders’ style, but Jordan was the lesser of two evils. Ian, I suggest you widen your stance a little bit and get off the child’s board. It would do wonders for your style since stability seemed to be an issue.
    The main reason I’m giving this one to Jordan was for that nose press on the S rail. Dude, that was sooooo sick!

  • martis

    ian because everyone hates his stance.


  • Well the rails were sick…I know springs has some jumps over 15 feet…grow a pair

  • Beetle Juice

    Damb im pretty sure that skinny of stances makes tricks harder.
    so they both get my vote.

    Nose press through the s was bokers

  • bigstacks

    i dont get why jordan played an instrumental weezy song thats wack

  • Black Panther

    probably because he is so hood and is from suburbia
