  • shart

    lick the cat has more deeper religious roots so im voting for them

  • dingleberries

    definitely enjoyed licking the cat, but was more impressed by the goons

  • GetWyld

    Stock park footy can still make for a banger edit but at this point it doesn’t win contests. Yawgoons are creative and impressive and get the vote from both of my computers

  • Crawdaddy

    smoke my pole yobeat

  • milksteak

    were those fucking crab pots?

    rope swing was the freshness

  • Cbrown

    These are both real sick.

    But you gotta lick dat cat.

  • =

    yawgoo valley is definitely the scott stevens of resorts

  • bDr

    Damn, the yawgoons fucked everyone up, there fuckin gettin it

  • Annoyed

    Those were some shitty backflips, why did you keep on doing them?


    Yawgoons, I am sorry you don’t have snow or good taste in music. However not at any one point in your shitty riding, did anything happen that doesn’t happen at every park( all the time.)

    I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Other crew you suck too, but at least its funny.

  • ^

    But the yawgoons actually execute those tricks properly.

  • junkshow.

    @dafuq- you ain’t that smart, is ya?


    average riding….horrible music. Greenhorn games have better riders.

  • Rick

    YawGoons all day

  • idahoistheplace

    lick the cat reminded me of really good snowboarders and super shitty filmer. what the fuck was that vig?

  • @Dafuq

    yeah that front blunt 450 double tail grab was definately some average riding

  • hmmm

    quality over quantity..

  • meow

    Mary Rand! dump ’em out!

  • dylan gamache everyone

  • clayton bigsby

    mary rand is a fuckin boss


    I dont think people understand that lick the cat is just for fun and they could care less if they win or not. they were having fun doing what they love. and filming with a handy cam is just to make it funnier

  • Sleep

    Fuck the east coast ride a real mountain.


    I don’t care how many votes you get, lick the cat is a billions times cooler than you.

  • Do you people honestly think that Lick the Cat took this seriously?

  • Derek Weimer

    LTC had some great boarding and it was fun to watch! YAWGOONS is changing the game. sorry but my vote is for the east.

  • Erik

    LTC! I expected a lot more for yawgoons from the yobeat comment hype. it wasn’t that great

  • squares

    i did not expect the rope swing. second shit was funny, but go yawgoons.

  • OG

    East coast represent!!!! voted for lick the cat for more tech tricks…. but god damn ur edting was sick as shit and filming!!!!!!!….. and do to lack of snow… STE!!!!! keep up the good work guys

  • dicinvag

    clearly the yawgoons had fun and did this for fun too; the vid just came out way better than LTC.
    and @DAFUQ what do you listen to…ryan seacrest’s top 40, while jackin off to a pic of clay aiken.

  • flactorslu

    remember when going up rails was cool?

  • @DAFUQ

    if DA FUQ is not a 12 year old kid then i feel very, very sorry for him…everything about that post has “im autistic” written all over it.

  • im high

    you fools need to stop hating so much…that being said, LTC just wasnt that good, the riding and especially the editing was poor even if they were just fuckin around…and what i saw from the yawgoons was them taking advantage of a shitty winter, a lot of hammers, mad creative shit goin on and really dope they got a chick throwin down…and i could care less who wins thats just how it is.

  • go skate

    flips and one footer shit is so damn wack i cant stand it, so ya i really hope they were just fuckin around and dont care if they win

  • my finger is smelly


  • UTAH

    Haters are so whack. LTCFL LTC OR DIE LICK THE FUCKING CAT

  • Numbers Dont Lie


  • Hash Slinging Slasher

    I have nothing clever or funny to say about the yawgoons video. It was just good.

  • Jake lu

    I dont know whats cooler ripped pants or cats…YOLOOOO

  • PileS

    not even a contest anymore

  • heydudes

    yawgoons vid is entertaining and won easily, but not the best vid. it’s all park and mini urban, that little boat feature is hit like six times. sick tricks and creative, but nothing i can’t get out of watching “I ride park city edits.” park is just easier to film so not impressive to me as if those tricks were being thrown on urban spots like some of the other vids, and they don’t hit jumps or ride pow, they are all scott steven types and only highlighted a shred of snowboarding, but still sick overall and a fun watch

  • heydudes

    and before any goonie flips out i know they are east coast and ride a little resort, props to them but snowboarding is more then jibbing, why not skateboard?

  • Zoid

    LICK THE CAT! All day, everyday, all night duuuude.

  • ………………..

    i really don’t want either of them to lose

  • LER

    Word fuckin sweet edit my rhode island dudes

  • LER

    Oh and dudette! Sorry Miz! Haha

  • LER

    Oh and dudette! Sorry Miz! Awesome gap btw

  • @heydudes

    cuz skateboarding sucks a fat one compared to snowboarding, plus jibbing is just fun as fuck IMO

  • weasel

    hell yeah yawgoons killing it, the second guys did wicked god shit too but yaw goons had some techy tricks with that east coast style


  • Sandusky

    Park City is sick but Yawgoons was way more creative. I mean rope swings, lobster crates, lil boys in the shower… they had it all. Yawgoons for the win

  • Numbers Lie

    Is this voting machine from Florida?

  • dig

    “hey dude” is smart both. those edits suck. this must be the chase?


    improper beat sheets.

  • Dylan Gamache and Brian Skorupski absolutely killing it. Yawgoons ALL DAY!

  • Keith Stone

    lick the cat had possibly the worse song choice ever…that being said my vote goes to YAWGOONS!

  • DON’T DO IT!

    “Voting will close Wednesday, April 1 at 5 pm PST.” According to my calculations… April 1st is Sunday. PUT DOWN THE BONG YO BEAT!!!

  • upstatemike.

    what the fuck, how is rhode island killing it so hard right now?? fucking yawgoons!!!

  • mark

    Technical riding from both crews, but different approaches.

    Yawgoons from the east, no park crew and have to create everything.
    LTC is west and funner vibe from a standard setting.

    LTC has some DOPE technical stuff, what they were doing to the star set was cool as fuck.
    Yawgoons though is in the same vein as Think Tank though and just comes from left field with where their tricks actually take place.

    It’s great that LTC doesnt take snowboarding seriously, its snowboarding, but when they’re in a contest, while their riding is still cool (and destroy the yawgoons in the air, the jump skills were MUCH higher, THOUGH Yawgoo Valley has no park and therefore little opportunity for ginormous booter seshs).

    Both edits have technical riding, elements of fun, and shitty music. Place them in the context of their respective regional areas though and the Yawgoons originality shines through for the win IMO.

  • butthole surfer

    i just got done dry humping this broad with jeans on and my penis hurts i vote for yawgoons

  • ThankYouMark

    for explaining. I didn’t really grasp these two videos before you laid it out like that.

  • name

    dylan gamache is so fucking good its crazy, brian skorupski throws hammers and marcus rand is such a boss and his style is so fuckin sick…not to mention mary rand is the illest female ripper out there right now, how is she not pro? goons all day and anyone who hates on them or the homies in the lick the cat vid probably ski.

  • CallMe

    Butternut Yawgoons collab?

  • I’m pretty sure all of these crews are for fun, and I am pretty sure they all love snowboarding. Stop talking out your dillhole.

  • Loon mt.

    Marcus rand and Brian skorupski ride jumps really really good. Believe me

  • ^

    Seen them Sending 80 footers in carinthias inferno too! Dudes are no joke

  • lick the cat had no quality to it, and it being for fun showed. Looked like something thrown together in an afternoon, where the light was no good. most of the shots were shit, and the riding was rather blah. I gathered the fun aspect, but this comp is not just who had the most fun, it is what video you like most, and LTC was not it. The heads on the right coast clearly put a lot of time and effort into their video to make it happen where there was virtually no snow, mad johnson props folks! I didnt dislike either, but the yawgoons video was just better, hands-down.

  • Le Grand Fromage

    yawgoons is the tits

    mary rand killed it at loon yesterday

    haters can shove a throny dildo up their ass

    <3 y'all

  • ![ ] F

    Nobody in this contest will be able to even come close to beating Yawgoons. Gamache is a little shred ninja and he will kill you

  • i ride your mom

    you cant hate on yawgoons for not riding real mountains and only jibbing. growing up in the midwest was the same conditions if not worse. the shit they do is fucking sick for having literally no snow. creative and sketchy features. tech and clean tricks. i dont know how anyone could make a better video with what they got.
