People’s Court: Nate Falconer vs Tom O’Reilly


Someone last week said the guy with hand rails in his edit always wins. So this week we found two edits with handrails in them. Who wins now?

    @Matt Mcgregory… are you fucking serious? don’t get me wrong, nate had some cool shots but no way is that better than a “professional video part”. plus you’re a complete douche for saying “So nast”

    @snake, you seem to be under the impression that we have hundreds of videos to choose from. If that were the case why would we be using edits from last season?

    PS (again) why is there 3 different camera angles for a blunt 270 on a picnic table? i understand you wanna edit the video to go w better with the song but come on dude… no need to see a blunt 270 on a 3ft wide table from 3 different angles

    Kudos to Nate’s filmer and editor. That vid looked oh so nice. Even though it was all slow mo and he did a back swivel, Nate takes this one. No contest.

    Holy slow mo! the first guy was obviously better at snowboarding but that edit was fucking unwatchable with all those multiple angles+slowmotion bullshit, can anyone take a hint from the hyland edits? why where the old sunday’s in the park better than the ones they do now? cause they were quick and to the point!

    @shaquille oneil, he wasn’t complaining about a lack of lipslides, he was calling out that horrendous nose-pivot back overcrook to back lip-the-last-foot-of-the-rail ender that falconer kid was trying to pass off as a back lip. c’mon folks, if you’re gonna do a trick do it proper, otherwise its not worth doing at all.

    ps swivels were a passing fad a few years ago, that shit can fucking die

    you are all fucking idiots. nate obviously kills it, i dont care about the “slow mo”. QUITE BITCHING! if all you really care about is the tricks then the editing shouldnt matter right? plus that swivel was on quite the gnarly urban rail, so its his style and hes not following you children but expressing himself.

    Falconer had 3 minutes of well edited street slaying

    Nate had a minute of sketchy riding with a song that’s been used by everybody and their 11 year old bitchy little sister, who also filmed that edit.

    I’m starting to think that YoBeat is pre-deciding the winners….

    I like when people say Nate’s video is overdone….dont’t be pissed just because he has sick filming and editing while you do follow cams with a gopro

    jenkem4life says:

    id rather film follow cams with a gopro all day than use a glide cam, and im sorry but that swivel was too much, especially since he smithed grinded it at the very end of the rail and almost ate shit
