"SKATE is a skateboarding game using rules based upon the H.O.R.S.E. game played by basketball players.The rules are basic. One player sets a trick by doing a particular skateboarding trick of their choice. If the trick is not landed, another player attempts to set a trick. Once a trick has been set (landed), the other player(s) must respond by doing the same trick in their first try. If they make it the game continues; if they miss it, they get a letter, starting with S, and so on, until they have missed five tricks, spelling SKATE, and they are out or the game is over. No trick may be set more than once in the same game and a skater defending on their last letter may receive two attempts at that trick."
"Battle at the Berrics is a slightly updated version of the Game of SKATE held at the Berrics in Los Angeles, CA. Their rules are: Flat ground only, but, that does not mean anything on flat ground counts. No feet on the ground. That means no No Complys, no Hand plants, no Bonelesses, no grabs, and no "Malto manual BS". No doing tricks that slide on the ground if your opponent popped their trick. Last letter gets two tries. Offensive toe drag gets one do over. Defensive toe drag has a bigger margin of error but will ultimately be decided by the referee. If trick maker does not pop the trick but is still landed, the trick still counts."
