    both songs were gay. and apples a retard. so this is a no vote. im making a statement

  • wumbo

    where’s the wow factor?

  • RH

    As a big guy myself, making me biased man… Big guy had some more variations and frontboards.

  • Don

    gotta respect the big guys

  • Yobeat… proving that fat kids can still shred since 1997

  • JP Walker

    Fatty got back!

  • Jh

  • Keith Stone

    austin because he hit a jump

  • tyler

    both songs blinded me from seeing any good tricks

  • treesmokerjohnny

    Another day another shitty edit from keystone


    That Austin guy sure has nice reg stance 50s but I like when guys make their backs face down the rail plus the words GOON SQUAD make me want to burn down a daycare

  • barry macockiner

    first dude trying to be like dylan gamosh with his ripped, shitty snowpants…

  • Jacob

    Why does it matter what kind of condition your pants are in this is about whose the better snowboarder not who has the nicest outerwear

  • Mom

    that jacob listens to some foul music

  • Toledhoes

    Matt Kusbel with the top comment… You’re fucking awful at snowboarding. Stop hating on kids who are a hell of alot better than you. Apple is the shit

  • PussClot

    Ben Maki

  • derrrrrrrel

    jake is clearly better the other kid pretty much only does backboard sameways< jake kills it the whole edit

  • Jimmy Saville

    Austin got more steeze

  • mathew meek-white

    the obvious factor is jacob kills it switch and reg

  • Sam

    jacobs song made me want to commit seppeku. austin kills it.

  • Reilly Tardiff

    I don’t even like jumps but I like a fairly well rounded video.

  • Jared Strembitsky

    Jacob Mortenson should get more votes. He is the better snowboarder for sure. You say that this other guy hits jumps, jumps are so small they arnt even worth filming. Doesn’t even look good. He does the same 3 tricks on everything. Jacob Mortenson all the way.

  • tony hawk

    derrrrrrrel dont be silly. Austin does 3 sameways variations, in order of appearance he does a lipslide sameways off of the front foot, a switch lip sameways, and then a back blunt sameways. Although similar in motion they are still distinctively different tricks.

  • tony hawk

    It is nice to see two canadian boys more specifically albertans going head to head though! Edmonton vs Calgary.

  • Dumbo


  • hi.


  • Ski Baby

    how the fuck is Jake not winning this? kid was nuts.. i dont even know which way he rides hes so clean

  • Jacob

    I’m regular

  • David

    Jacob goes hard switch and reg and austin’s vid was meh… don’t know either and its pretty clear who won this one

  • Oh Henry

    I rode rabbit hill once, it was like a trip to the mid-west without all the kids thinking they’re hard

  • two22’s

    0:48 Jacob absolutely locked that front overcrook!

  • Obviously

    @two22’s thats a switch front overcrook to you

  • jeenyus

    clear winner for me. once i noticed how much was switch vs the 50-50 back 1 out on everything it’s more than clear.
