    I prefer rails, but awesome seeing a pow edit. It had solid shit, but was way too loosely edited. Should’ve left half out and it would’ve been very sick! Still got my vote, as there was gnarly stuff in there. Rail dude had good flow too.

    second dude really knows how to zeach, it was cool when he turned into a black dude though, although when he turned into the black chick that scared me a little.

    splicing in shots of waka flocka, juicy j, rick ross etc into your snowboard videos should get you fucking shot

    the first video left me stunned. really, really good.
    then I scrolled down and saw the word Flocka in the second title. I ain’t even watching that shit.

    Really enjoyed both of these. Matt’s footage is always amazing and I thought that Sean had a cool style, even though he had a zeached 5-0 in his ender. These guys are for sure talented.

    Can anyone give me some insight into who makes the knowbuddy boards that have been popping up in videos so much lately? Maybe a link if possible. Thanks yobeaters

    Its the Burton knowbuddy board. You have to be sponsored by Burton to get your hands on it. I don’t know what people are saying I thought seans edit was pretty funny, and good.

    First one because there’s nothing gangster about snowboarding and I’d rather see a guy ride pow on a pow day.

    I vote for neither due to the first dude’s abundance of self-y gopro footage and the song that was in think thank’s trailer and video, and the second edit’s cliche shitty rap edit spliced with the music video, while riding in whistler??

    the sean thomson dude killed it, hes better than 80-90% of the people who submit peoples court. I love good editing but I judge riders on their riding and that kid rips. Give him some cred.

    tyler says:

    the first guy got my vote because it was a lot more enjoyable to watch without waka flocka making multiple appearances but they are both equally as good in their own style of riding

    that pow edit was dope. the second kid definitely threw down, but it was no comparison to the shots the first guy got, i don’t understand why these two are against each other in peoples court? They’re completely different riders and i don’t think any rail rider can compare to a sick pow edit…

    Stupid match, the first edit was filmed throughout a season and the second edit was filmed in a day. You can’t compare these two.

    Half you kids are actually mentally handicapped. Seans edit was filmed for fun, its not like he filmed it specifically for peoples court, he was just chosen randomly by yobeat. Comparing park to pow is like comparing apples to oranges or dicks to vag’s. And you dont need to be “rich” to ride Whis, you just need enough incentive to get off your asses and save a couple bucks instead of hating on blog posts when you wish you could ride a snowboard. Go buy a pair of skis and move to Alta.
