He got 2nd because I and 4 others decided that he didn't ride well enough to get first.

From what I saw (from the judges table) Uchi rode better. I'm not going to defend my decision. It wasn't just me, it was 4 out of 5 judges that made the decision.

flatland is about innovation, and the stuff Uchie brought into the contest was not only really innovative, but also extremely difficult. Matt's routines where really really difficult, but he's been practicing those tricks now for years-in fact, little change from his routine last year at Voodo. besides, Matt's made a few mistakes in the first two rounds, whereas Uchie's first rounds where faultless. the opposite happened at the end, but it is precisely at the beginning when riders make the most impression.

I think it was a though decision but innovation wise, I agree with the results.

I think the judging system was great, the only decision that shocked me was a all 5 judges voting that Matt Wilhelm beat Dominik...I think that should have been a lot closer, other then that, I think the judging was fair and well done, so many tough decisions, anyone who complains about judging needs to realize its so hard not to be biased in this situation thinking you see riders fall but you've seen them do the tricks before, its gotta be hard to seperate yourself from footage you've seen before, and riders you like more...And all that jazz.

I kept commenting to "whoever" was next to me all throughout the contest that I would not want to be sitting at the judges' table.  Voodoo Jam 2008 was completely insane and IMO the riding was on a whole other level from previous years.  Actually being there was a whole lot different than watching this video.  I thought that the final could have easily gone either way.  Uuchi and Matt were both killing it, but I don't think that ANYONE was expecting to see the combos that Uuchi brought to Voodoo Jam 2008.  Great job by everyone (judges included) and mad props to Dominik for throwing down some of the most completely insane sh*t of the contest. 

Thanks to ALL who were involved and I hope to be there and see you all again next year! :beer:

just curious TJ, who sat at the jury table? did Chad compete?

also, maybe you know, but why didn't Viky come?

I would have really liked to see him, and Waldmar too


I really hope I can make it to Voodo next year.

It was Bobby Carter, Gabe Kadmiri, Jody Temple, myself, and a gentlemen whose name escapes me because I learned like fifty names this weekend and I'm bad with names I'm sorry :(

Certainly wasn't a few people picked from the crowd.

Dominic was definitely insane. I was dogging on him because he never landed anything in practice.... because his links went on forever and ever. Honestly, he was going for 2 minute long links and not riding out. filming that is very, very, frustrating. He's also an INCREDIBLY nice guy and I cannot wait to go out drinking with him again.
