  1. I would love to have the chance to try out one of the Uber Light’s i have Difficultly with Landind Lazer flips so thats the one trick i would love to re-learn and land And i think That the Uber Light would help me land it once and for all.

  2. patrick bennett

    would like to take my skating to the next level.and with this board im sure its possible.
    i would like to try bigspin heelflip a gap.or nollie 360 pressure flip..skate big stuff with this board!!!

  3. big spin, big spin flip, Nollie inward heelflip or Switch fs heelflip

  4. I’d most probably do a nolie hardflip :D ,light board would give me super pop on that trick.

  5. Well, if I was lucky enough to win one of these decks, I’d finally be able to land my switch laser flip late shove-it. Only joking- but I’d bet with these Uber Light decks I’d land a 360 flip no problem

  6. I would land a BS big spin if that board was mine!

  7. Andrew Stoumann

    I hope some underflips but definitely some solid switch flips :D

  8. I would firstly be super hyped and would be staring at the deck for a few days. hahah . First trick would be a fat ollie down sum stairs for warm up then first flip for the board would be a 360 flip. The tricks i would like to land on that board is the different 360 variations( frontside,backside,switch )

  9. nollie late-flip seems perfect :)

  10. Darran Campbell

    Well…firsty I want to say big up to the guys commenting on this! You guys seem to be really good skaters and would almost kill for this board, so in that light I am sorry for the following cause I reckon some would even be like, “Why is this dude entering?”
    I’m an ex skater – going on 11 years now. But I really do miss it! I got into the University world, and then Corporate World and there was no time for skating seeing that this culture just took over and the companies took all my time.
    These days for some reason I’m looking to get into skating again, even if I’m the youngest in the skate park. I reckon I would be so happy just to nail a ollie again, but I would work damn hard to get to do a kickflip again…(All skaters and people on this page is probably laughing now…) But yeah…I reckon this will give me the determination again to get into this awesome sport and lifestyle again.

  11. I’d land my first kickflip.

  12. Sive Twizz Marasha

    This board would surely upgrade my level of skateboarding. I would first try landind a grind combo, something like a kick flip 50 50 truck grind :) . And then try late flips, hard late flip to be exact :D .

  13. Richard Poultney

    If I was lucky enough to win this deck I wouldn’t land any new fancy tricks but it would be exactly what I need just to get back into skating again.

  14. Spencer Moropa

    360 flip

  15. Brendan Greville

    I would certainly try to attempt to land… a manual kickflip to nose manual f/s shuv-it to boardslide f/s 180 heelflip out. I would probably only land a fakie big spin at best (and end off with a cess slide, YES YOU HEARD ME, a CESS slide. OLD SKOOL styles on a NEW SKOOL board). If i win the deck, i’ll film me falling on my ass doing all these things, and we can have a laugh about it. Gleaming the boob…

  16. I would land a 360 flip. Just need a bit more time in the air and I think this board would make that possible.

  17. nollie noseslide.. nollie flip noseslide.. nollie crooks..

  18. I wouldn’t skate it its so beautiful *jokes*!! I would perfect my switch tre-flips and switch hardflips!! Awesome board!!

  19. I would pop the cleanest, most beautiful, ollie over a gap, and the board would stick to my feet and land perfectly.

  20. katleho morajane

    the flamingo.

  21. Brendan Stubbs

    I have been getting my Overflips closer and closer to consistent, Im sure this would help me perfect it.

  22. Mzimasi Ndzombane

    I would seriously try a inward heel over this pavement gap. The flip and spin needs to be so fast! haha so this deck would be great

  23. This is def a game changer, technology wise. Trick wise,180 – late shove-its and backside 180′s to late backfoot slip would be what I would try with this board. Even simple tricks like frontside shove its would have a new flavor to them!

  24. siyabonga lungile

    I once saw Jean-Marc do a late hard flip at a contest…I believe that with this unique skateboard deck,I should land them as easy as he does

  25. I’d love to do a noseslide or a kickflip with this board! tight

  26. Ande Matanzima

    I would land a fakie varial kickflip on that board,actually I would land a fakie varial kickflip to 50-50 grind.

  27. I’d definitely land a casper!

  28. i will learn to ollie (:

  29. I would do a Frontside Nose slide 270 late flip, The board is much lighter and will help me doing it more easier.

  30. Anele Khaya Mabentsela

    I’d do my favourite trick kickflip

  31. Nollie late flip

  32. Brandon Van Os

    I’d like to land a nollie hardflip to backside tailslide. This board looks like it has some pop and this trick will also demonstrate the dexterity and flow of the board

  33. I love doing hard flips. Onto things, over things and into things. And of course some tre flips

  34. nhlanganiso malindi

    Bigspin and nollie bigspins

  35. If I was to win this uber light,I would go play a game of skate with my friends.and I would land my favourite trick A Varial Kickflip or my second best a fakie bigspin. But I will also try one of rodney mullen’s signature tricks a Handstand Flip….and I would really love to win this board because my verb is about has big cracks and its about to snap! Its been through a lot. So please!!!! I really need this board

  37. Eugene de Klerk

    Firstly, what a pleasure it would be to win this board! AWESOME! Secondly, I am a retired skateboarder going on 30 years of age and knees weakening by the day from 16 years of skating. The trick I would pull off would be a nice smooth flip nose manny too fakie out on a manny pad….after a couple o tries.. LOL

    If I don’t win this, good luck to the youngsters out there! SK8 or DIE

  38. I would land my tre-flips,varial heels and fakie 360 front shuv heel and some other tricks I would commit to stairs more and so on that board is sum good stuff

  39. Chuuur if this board were to come into the possession of being mine, first stop would have to be to the local skatepark and lay down a nollie heel back tail / kickflip, and not eat sh*eyat. then again anything would be better than this trinity deck im rolling on now :/ , #NewZealandSkateScene #GivesYouWings !!

  40. I would LOOOOOOOOOOOVE to get this board!! This would help to infinity aand beyooond with trying out some dope tricks i have yet to land! Switch flips, popping fat fs and bs bigspins! Id also really like to land a solid tre catching it with the front foot , just looks rad! and then CATCH UP to all these homies in their comments wanting to land tricks i will get to with a new Almost Uber Light Skateboard :D

    Peace out :)

  41. Kieran Whitehouse

    I would go straight for a NOLLIE BACK HEEL 360.

  42. If I was to win this uber light,I would go play a game of skate with my friends :D .and I would land my favourite trick A Varial Kickflip or my second best a fakie bigspin. But I will also try a few of rodney mullen’s signature tricks a Handstand Flip,a casper flip and some primo flips and slides :) :) ….and I would really love to win this board because my verb is about has big cracks and its about to snap! Its been through a lot. So please!!!! I really need this board :( :( :(

  43. I’d love to win a new deck as mine is bendy and pap! New tricks mmm fakie fs 360 kickflip, improve hardflips (light board with lotsa pop would be perfect) and fakie bigger heel flip sound like fun.

  44. With this sweet deck I would go so far as stomping out a shuv late-heel down a small set at the local train station. The bums would be amped!

  45. I’ve only just learned to do an ollie, so that would be my move but then I am only 6years old and my mom is typing this message for me :)

  46. I only ride almosts cause of the concave and pop, so i would land a fat hard flip down some big stairs

  47. With such a light weight, I will land double kickflips!

  48. Haley Wolochowicz

    I would try to land a Kickflip finally. I’ve been trying for so long and just cant seem to get it. I also would want to get my Ollie higher. With this board I feel like I would be able to do more stuff because of the weight. Thanks

  49. Darkside Grind definately

  50. Kickflip

  51. I would more than likely land a faceplant. I dig skateboarding, but im still not that good haha

  52. Lazer flip

  53. A 360 flip, its simple and simplicity is the ulitmate sophistication.

  54. pj van den berg

    I’d probably pop some hardflip back lips with that bad boy.

  55. I realy dont know what trick i would do but skateing is not about whos the best who landed the sickist trick its about having fun felling free from life’s drama and crap. I would do a bs tailslide to 360kickflip out. :-p

  56. Monthato Shuping

    FS 180 Kickflip to FS Nosegrind (Over a Gap).

  57. I am lucky because I can get this board for R855 at my skate park

  58. It would be brilliant to land kickflips on this great board and have fun cruising around.

  59. Most Def nail a Lazer Flip

  60. It has to be a frontside tailslide down a long handrail to shove-it out………..simple, but nothing quite like landing a trick like that!

  61. Ntuthuko Mavundla

    I love pop shove its.

  62. Ntuthuko Mavundla

    pop shove it

  63. if i were to win this board i would finily land my 360 flip to 50-50 180 shove out. i will do big stuff on that thing.

  64. 360 flip

  65. Why are you asking what trick i’d land if the board was mine? The way you phrased that question makes it seem as if i’d land only one trick! If i had this deck, i’d land every trick. In fact do you know what I’d land land? No of course you don’t, but since it’s an uber light you should have been thinking somewhere along the lines of a triple nollie lazerflip to overcrook grind out to a one wheel nose manual using the 4th eyelash on my left eye. To all the other contestants that have entered and are reading my entry and think this insane – well you? You simply don’t deserve to win! Because, because.. well i shouldn’t have to explain why! – you should already know how awesome the uber light is to believe me!

In fact do you know what I’d land land?

To all the other contestants that have entered and are reading my entry and think this insane – well you? You simply don’t deserve to win! Because, because.. well i shouldn’t have to explain why! – you should already know how awesome the uber light really is to believe me! On a serious note, I won’t just land “a trick” if i get this board – I’ll land all the tricks that i’ve been working for so hard for so long on that i haven’t been able to get rotation or get it fast enough to be able to catch the board and land them clean. Part of me would want to do that, but the other part wants me to hang the board because it’s so rare and there are only 500 of these made in the world. In the end, if it takes skating this uber light to perfect and land new stuff then i’d be stoked to do just that!

  67. I must first do an Ollie, though it may be sounded cliche, but in spite of being basic and old, Ollie is my first love and how can i forget to love her….

  68. If I were to win this board, maybe I’d finally be able to land an Ollie ;)

  69. khanyisani mnganga

    I would land a frontside shove-it if i won the board

  70. I would redo a trick that I’ve done before. Inside heel flip to 5-0 grind.

  71. With a Board Like That You Don’t Need Tricks To Impress, i’ll Just Sit On My Bum and Roll Down The Street Like a CoolKid Haha! #TrendSetter

  72. i will land a kickflip witch i have been trying to land for 6 months now a heellflip and a 360 shove

  73. For sure I will do a kick flip and then most likely I will try to do a double kick flip! :D Love that board!!!! xxx

  74. I will every flip known to man

  75. The trick i would do… is an attempt n’ fall trick haha. nah i would rather transfor it into a longboard
