This was a single session right? I'm always puzzled how long Jakob can keep going when I play with him, he can basically outshred me by an hour or so.. 8O

Day 15 was from a single session. Jakob does play long sessions, he's always the last one still playing when everyone else has quit :)



Day 16 comes from Montreal:

Day 15: Awesome shred as always. These Jakob and Aleksi videos are a real treat. Rewatching always discovers things I didn't catch the first time around. Such dense shred. I love how genuine Jakob plays. Just when you think he's about to bail... I think what stood out to me the most in this one was the cleanliness of that gyro barroque -- tightest dexes I've ever seen on that trick!

Day 16: Yves and Seb in one video? Now it feels like Christmas :D Great to see a variety of awesome players. Dante is a machine. I'm not even half done watching yet -- just had to comment on Yves and Seb.

Aleksi - great style in the last video. Precision, trick variety, dynamics of your runs - all really nicely executed and planned. I had a tough time predicting your next move/link and that made it really enjoyable. Thank you for taking the game so seriously.

All great videos, thanks! Could Air or a mod edit the first post of the topic to list them all?

Once again, thanks for all the comments. Makes it much nicer to post more videos.

I didn't want to put all the videos in the first post as of yet, because I wanted people come to the last page of this thread and see all the previous comments and maybe comment themselves. I was gonna do it when all the videos were out. Oh well,

Day 17 comes from Turku.

CLEARLY everybody has brought their "A" game for the calendar. I am definitely seeing some of the sharpest, cleanest, and styli-est shred from just about everyone. Rene being just the most recent example. Someone who's style I already liked and appreciated stepped it up a notch.

Hey Air, thank you very much for taking the time to put this together this year. It's very generous of you. While you don't seem to get a lot of feedback here on modified, it seems evident that each time you post a video tens and hundreds of people get to it within a day or so. So, again thank you for keeping the modified.in holiday spirit alive! Each video comes across like a shock from a defibrillator... oh man... in another life that would be my BAP name...

In response to some of these videos...

So much great talent in the videos... especially from you.

Awesome.

I just updated the calendar view I made so that the videos are embedded right in the page. It's much cooler now :)

Day 17: Awesome mustache. This one will take a lot of watching to catch everything, I think. I liked the triple dexes, like the symp flurry > enterrage, the triple pickups look sooo easy. I liked that one combo that looked like it was supposed to be a drill. Great, surprising and hard links as usual.

Day 18: Awesome. Such great style. I found myself distracted more by the passersbys' reactions -- trying to figure out what they think of the shred. It seems really well-received there. My favourite was the stepping near symple swirl > ripwalk [repeat] attempt. Nice scenery and so smooth shred.

Day 19: I'm always surprised by Tuukka's game. Loved SPAS > in-pandora -- my first thought was, that trick's hard on its own, nevermind toe inspinning out of it... It was neat to see David's shred. Toni's furious run was sweet, also liked the ducking one. Really fitting song.

Day 20: Awesome. Jay's form and Jorden's creativity... Loved the stepping flurry. Also Jorden's far double pickup > fairy eggbeater -- so nice. I also dig the way he hits certain tricks really efficiently like the dolomite in the same run? Just looks so easy.. I really wish this one was a lot longer though. Not enough!
