People’s Court: Adam Lechner vs. Nick Connell

This week on People’s Court we’ve got two kids from sunny California. Both shred hard and have some pretty sweet maneuvers but only one can walk away as the champion. Or will the dogs take it?

People’s Court: Brennon Sloan vs. Brady McCarthy

This week we got two kids, close in age (i’d guess), sending some nice rail maneuvers and making their friends film. Will dad cams take it all? Or is watching other people getting hurt still your favorite pastime?

People’s Court: TJ Fitzgerald vs. Shane Reuther

This week People’s Court returns with two newly turned teenagers. These 13 year olds kill it, but who will emerge on top? Who will be the next up and comer? The pre-teen of the year? You decide, or will the skiers take over?

People’s Court: Clayton Scott vs Kyle Stainton

This week People’s Court makes a return with two dudes who shred the same amount of rails in totally different ways. Who has the sicker style? Who’s got the coldest slides of them all? Or is Fat and Furious going to be the next best thing?

People’s Court: Bradley Harper vs Storm Rowe

This week, People’s Court makes an unexpected return. Two east coasters who are in their mid teens battle it out. Sending both jumps and rails they can both appeal to all YoBeaters, but they probably won’t. Who are you for? Or are you voting Trump?

People’s Court: Aiden Chmura vs Jason Loxterkamp

This week we have two kids who enjoy a little bit of everything, some jumps, some rails, the occasional urban spot. However, they have two very different styles, which one do you like more? Who does better maneuvers? Or are do you just want to watch sports.

This season, the People’s Court is brought to you by So-Gnar. Battles are open to any amateur snowboarder – you can be sponsored, just not getting paid, son. Want to take part?  Send your edit (hosted on Youtube of Vimeo) to [email protected] 

People’s Court: Daniel Connelly vs Hugo Dubé-Bouchard

This week we have two park-loving snow ninjas, and while wearing all black will never go out of style, this isn’t about fashion choices, it’s about deciding if America or Canada is better. Wait, that’s not it at all, it’s a super serious competition about snowboarding athletics. Right?

People’s Court: Austin Johnson vs Micah Sienkowski

It’s been a minute since we’ve run a People’s Court, mostly because no one wants to watch soggy edits, and the submission pool was looking a lot like a California reservoir lately. But with this season coming to an end, the young and hungry are once again sending in their videos and it’s time to bring it back! This battle pits two aspiring rail rats against each other for a chance at Internet glory and some gear from iNi Cooperative.

The People’s Court: Mitja Kodric vs. Pat Hrivnak


It’s been a good run, but this will be the last People’s Court that I do. After this week Alexa McCarty will be taking the reigns over all my duties at YoBeat. With that being said here are two People’s Court entries I’ve been sitting on for a minute that both are solid entries.

First up we have the Euro, Mitja Kodric, who put together a solid video part. Once you get over the corny Instagram handle in the beginning and shitty music, Mitja’s riding really stands out. This is probably one of the few entries to ever have backcountry jumps in it. His challenger, Pat Hrivnak, hails from Ontario and seems like quite the character. All street, Pat’s clips all seem very spontaneous and loose. He may not have any jump shots, but his riding is much more raw and entertaining to watch. The ball is now in your court, watch the videos, cast your vote, and speak your mind in the comments as to who should be this week’s People’s Court Champion.

The People’s Court: Matt Cochrane vs. Mikhail Potemkin

Screw trying to go out and hit street spots, it’s too much work. If you’re not trying to make a “career” out of snowboarding what’s the point. Who wants to go shovel for hours, take hard slams, and deal with the cops just for a few seconds of footage? Plus with the amount of footage that comes out these days, will anyone even see it? This week’s People’s Court faces off to riders who’ve said screw the streets and instead stick to their home resorts to be park rats.

Our first competitor, Matt Cochrane, spends his days hot lapping at his local hill. Matt’s got a decent bag of tricks but my favorite shot was his ender back 3 on. Not because it was his coolest trick, but because of the gauntlet of kids standing on the lip. His challenger Mikhail Potemkin, hails from Russia, where he rides a public little rope tow in the center of Saint-Petersburg. Mikhail has also has a solid bag of tricks but it gets a bit repetitive since the Russian Hawk Island doesn’t change up their set-up too much. Now the gavel is in your hand. Watch both videos and cast your vote to decide which of these park rats should be this week’s People’s Court champion.

The People’s Court: Julien Passajou vs. Johnny Hancheck

Who’s got time to watch a four minute sponsor me tape these days? Between short attention spans, constantly fiending to check Instagram, and life in general, it’s hard to get people’s attention, let alone keep them interested for “long” periods of time. So this week I decided to face off two videos that are both just a minute long.

Our first competitor in this sixty second showdown is Julien Passajou, a young ripper hailing from North Carolina. A solid showing of your now standard rail tricks with composed style. His challenger Johnny Hancheck, dons a short sleeve tee for a weekend at The Canyons. Bunch of solid switch tricks mixed in with some resort riding shots. So please take the sixty seconds out of your day to watch both of these riders footage, and cast your vote as to who should be crowned this week’s People’s Court champion.

The People’s Court: Repolia Robinson vs. Nathan Roy


Sorry for not having a matchup last week guys, I was caught slipping. Anyways this week I’m going to just cut to the chase and present this week’s face off. This week we have two 16 year-old park rats matched up, both with their footage so far from this year.

The first challenger is Repolia Robinson, who is a part of the Those Other Boys crew. Repolia has some sick footage and claims it was only filmed in two weeks. His opponent, Nathan Roy, hails from the small Canadian hill, Rabbit Hill. After a few seconds of slams, Nathan goes in with some creative lines and solid tricks. Now’s the time where you cast your vote, talk shit in the comments and we crown the next People’s Court champion.
