Levi’s Skateboarding + Quartersnacks Set Contest

set contest

As prefaced on Wednesday, set building employs a large portion of skateboarders in New York. Thanks to the support of Levi’s Skateboarding, we were able to get some funds to throw a contest between a few of the shops out in Brooklyn.

The premise is simple, shoot a video with each respective shop’s employees skating only their workspace. Each had a little over a month to complete the task, and could take any route they wanted. A few weren’t able to come through due to the time demands of the job (always next time), but we got two solid entries from two of the larger skater-run shops: Pink Sparrow and Ready Set. Check below.

The winner gets $3k for their team. We gonna let the streets decide who wins.

Who should get the $3k?

  • Pink Sparrow (55%, 3,647 Votes)
  • Ready Set (53%, 3,540 Votes)

Total Voters: 6,619

Voting ends May 31st, 11:59 P.M. May the best team win. Have a good weekend ;)

  • I vote pink sparrow. I like how they literally skated whatever regular shit you would find in set shop (I’m guessing). Ready Set clearly built a little TF with skating in mind. Not a fair comparison!

  • @jo el – the whole point of the competition was to have these guys build their skate stuff in the shop, not just use what’s there. Readyset showed imagination, creativity and mad skills! The other shop did great too, but Readyset rocked it!!

  • props to pink sparrow for being clever and skating whatever they had laying around but it’s super rad that ready set went through the extra effort to build a bunch of stuff. it’s what they do – they’re set builders! they took the concept and ran with it to not only showcase their skating but also their ability to build cool shit.. otherwise it would just be two videos of a buncha fuccbois doing ollies over a tablesaw and grinding forklifts. major props for the old williamsburg waterfront and grand st spots. RS gets my vote.

  • They didn’t build a skatepark. They re created old nyc skate spots that aren’t skateable anymore. (Sea port ledges, those bank to banks at chase in Brooklyn , and that could foundation spot. those dudes killed it at ready set. Good job

  • Bones wheels can eat a bag of dicks!!! a Yonnie Cruz care package to persuade votes…Really!?! its one thing to tell someone to vote for something or someone but another to add incentives. Just vote for what you think is better people

  • Nice Job READYSET. I have been screenshotting the numbers as a refresh every minute for the past hour. Clear cheaters.

  • WOW. Readyset is catching up in less than an hour with no social media posts. Readyset is a clear cheater and I have proof. I was willing to let the fact non-employees skated heavy in your video go, but this is BS. I should have voted for Pink Sparrow.

  • What do you mean “no social media posts” so they “must be cheating”? The ready set employees have all been using their personal pages to encourage friends and family to vote.

    Also frankly, where’s the love in this? Everyone’s starting to sound like a bunch of whiny babies over $3k. Get over yourselves.

  • pink sparrow clearly put very little work into this compared to readyset, and the way their numbers are climbing and video views are staying the same they’ve gotta be doing something shady to get their numbers up

  • I personally think the Warriors will take it in 6 games. Cavaliers will go on to multiple championships starting next season but this warriors roster is gonna take it this year.

    Russell Westbrook for MVP

  • Comment by Math is really hard
  • ^^ I wondered the same thing. What’s even stranger is the percentages. If both teams votes increase but the percentage gap is widening, it would suggest someone is manipulating the their team’s counter but not taking into account the overall votes counter and the team percentages.
