A couple of years ago Nike Skateboarding released their iPhone and android phone application. Since then thousands of skateboarders have used the Nike Skateboarding app to learn tricks, play games of S.K.A.T.E. , take part in challenges with friends and pros around the planet, and build their personal skate history. Today Nike Skateboarding released the best tricks users uploaded to their app during 2015.
The competition portion of the app lies in its S.K.A.T.E. game. To start, one skater will perform a move on his board and film it for 15 seconds. He’ll then upload the clip where his competitor will be able to view it. The competitor must then perform and record the same trick. If one of the players fails to perform a trick, the player is given a letter. Once one player has accumulated all the letters spelling “skate” they have lost the game. Here’s the full details from the app’s description:
Game of S.K.A.T.E.: Connect with skaters anywhere around the globe to play a game of S.K.A.T.E. through the app.
Challenges: Step up to new challenges issued by Nike SB and our pro team to help you keep progressing. Share your footage and have the chance to get noticed by a worldwide audience.
