Official rules of SKATE

By Ghost at 2006-08-01 10:38

    Skate is a competetion between two or more skaters. The rules of skate are similar to the rules of the basketball game HORSE.

      The first skater will attemp his trick, if he lands it and it is deemed an acceptable landing then everybody else must do that exact same trick.  Anybody who doesnt land the trick, or their landing is deemed unacceptable then they get a letter, "S" being the first letter, "K" being the second "A" being the third etc. until the word "S-K-A-T-E" is spelled out. Any person who gets the whole word "SKATE" is eliminated. 

          After everybody who is playing attempts the first players trick, the first player attempts a different trick. If he lands it the entire process is repeated. If the first player misses his trick then the second player gets to attempt a trick if he lands it everybody else has to land that same trick, if anyones landing is deemed unacceptable then they get a letter.


Can a player do the same trick twice?

No. If a player could do the same trick twice all they had to do was learn a trick like Lazer flips or sumthing to that extent and they could do it 5 times in a row and I doubt anyone could keep up. A player can do a trick in a different stance.
Ex. someone does a kickflip another player can do a nollie/fakie/ or switch kickflip(When it's their turn)

This isnt tony hawk version budds
      Some people think that when you play all you have to do is do a trick better than the trick before you, thats not true. That is how its played in the Tony Hawk games, those games misinterpret the game of skate.

how long do I have to hold a trick
    Some people say that when you play skate you have to ride away clean for about 3 - 4 seconds.  Some people don't like that rule, you can call your own rules when you play with your friends.



    Overall SKATE is a fun way to compete against friends that you have and also to show off your skills in skateboarding.  Even Eric Kosten thinks so:

"Anyone can play; it's easy, no matter how good you are." - Eric Koston"

Really nice work, you described it the same way I would. I can't think of anything that you missed.

That was pretty darn good. I have a tad bit of OCD, and so it annoys me when the content writers don't use punctuation or capital letters, haha.

But overall it was very detailed, easy to read and understand, and explained pretty much everything that anyone could want to ask.

There rreally isn't rules of skate. You play how you and you're friends want to play.

Another important rule is that one trick can only be performed once. For example, if Skater A did a kickflip a set no-one else could do it as a set again.

unless in nollie/switch/ or fakie stance.

when i play SKATE, i learned that if you do a trick, and no-one else can do it, your turn isnt over, so you can do another trick,..maybe its just a local rule,..but thats the way i learned it when i started to skate.
