I know we all feel this way, but let me just say it out loud, skateboarding on Instagram has gotten completely out of hand. I honestly feel that in the last year, skateboarding has progressed more trick wise than in the previous 5 years combined. Kids are posting practically impossible ender tricks on a day to day basis, to the point where we’ve become almost numb to it.

This Trick Of The Year competition on Instagram, where you can submit your tricks and have them ranked by other skaters is a prime example of that. We scrolled through that madness and picked out a couple of highlights – Check ’em out below and vote on which one you are feelin’ the most. We aren’t actually going to give the winner anything (mainly because we don’t have anything to give them), but they’ll get the intangible reward of respect from Jenkem readers, which is worth more than gold.
