Thank you all so much for an amazing competition this year. We did some things new this year, so please dont hesitate to let us know what we can do better next year! I am very proud of the way this community came together to have a fun, civil competition! It made me so happy to see all the amazing builds you beautiful people put together. This community never ceases to amaze me!
Now, it’s time for the winners to reap the rewards, and for us to all thank the wonderful sponsors of this event!
Securing a sizeable 41% of the vote in the Esk8 Innovation category, AND narrowly beating the competition in the BOTY General, your 2022 Esk8 Innovator AND Build of the Year is…
Daaaaaaamn Flyboy, you got half a build ready now. Deck, enclosure, dual esc, metr, davega, and riptide accessories! I need to see them all utilized in one build to sweep next year’s competition and win more prizes
Many thanks to the organizers and to the voting community! Just a couple years ago I had no clue how any of this hobby worked, just that I wanted to skate. The people here are the pure reason why I avoided getting into prebuilts, by showing me that the electrical side of the hobby was accessible so I could sic my mechanical skills on it. It’s insane to me that y’all consider me a top gun after such a short time, so I’ll try to keep living up to it.
Is the ROI on BOTY >1? [checks bank account] prolly not.
Not to sound ungrateful or anything but I probably won’t even be able to use all this stuff I think some of the confused noobs who come here trying to make tupperware boards are going to be getting some surprise equipment
I really need to get one of those Orbitals tho. fucking stand on esk8 bike with no handlebars wtf even is it? Something I NEED that’s fucking what. Neighbors would shit on the sidewalk if I rode that past them.
A rolling chassis might be a long term goal for me to produce Need more experience with the platform though.
I’m planning to part out Orbital eventually since it sorely needs a design revision, maybe you could snap it up @longhairedboy
