Firing Squad: Connor Dudgeon vs Jason Tackitt

Last week we put a bird on some powder it and called it art. This week we’re all about getting real in the streets. I mean, when it finally “dumps” 6 inches of snow somewhere what are you most likely to do? Okay, I doubt you’ll do anything like what you see in either of these photos but hey, you can pretend to while you’re hitting that 4′ flat bar you dig out of the garage. Regardless, pick your jib poison and vote.

PS, send in your photos!

    Photo 1 wouldve been taken over the top of the riders reflection was in that puddle! Still voted for it. Photo 2 seems a bit too crowded despite the epic grab

    So is it a lighting contest or a photo contest.. Overall composition is better on photo 1. Photo 2 is rad, but seems a little crowded with all the different lines going through it, and now that i noticed its a little crooked, thats all I can see. haha

    not to hate but i think both photos are not that great.
    photo #1 has to much nothing at the bottom of the frame and it weirds me out.
    and photo #2 has a cool rider but i feel there is too much going on.

    Come on people! Don’t let a late timing front board in flat light lose to a seatbelt grab to 50/50. Photo 2’s hands down the better photo. Better riding and better lighting. Get wit it you little kooks!

    i might vote for 2 if it had a different rider in it. could even be the same trick, and tilted even more…. if only he never opened his mouth and just let his riding talk for him…. total kook

    Photo means light dumbass.

    If choosing a photo based solely on outfits then I have to go with number 2. The kid in photo 1 is obviously wearing basketball warm ups and a flannel he bought at Walmart while the rider in photo 2 obviously shops at a vintage clothing store I’m guessing near a college town. So I voted for number 2

    photo 2 in absolutely no way even comes close to resembling a tindy. he is clearly grabbing with his front hand, in the middle of his tail. speed king you are a kook. by the way suck my balls, photo 2 won…
