New Project

steep gnarlyDUCK

Hopefully by now you have heard of and if not, ta da! It has been an idea for awhile, mainly since a lack of having a centralized area for all Steepers to share their media, ideas, or any other contributions such as coordinates or back stories of some of the challenges. Yes, there are many real life stories embeded through out Steep and many Point of Interests are also real.

Currently I have listed active discord communities for Steep. I also have a list of active and past competitive groups. I give all credit and a profile page for contributors. If you'd like to share photos, photomode, shared dares, group multiplayer, or anything else Steep related, please email me.

I try my best to update Steep Community once a week as well as my YouTube channel, gnarlyDUCK.

Thanks to my subscribers and everyone else in the Steep community.

1st Attempt – May Semi Finals

We made it! To Semi Finals anyway, and its time to put in the grind for Top 100. Yep, top 100 will advance into Finals! At the end of this stream we placed 66th with 49,900 score! Be sure to check out the last 30 minutes to see how we did that. Along the way I tell ya tips and breakdown the line for Top 100. BUT With 1 day and 10 hours left, I may well be pushed past the 100 mark. Luckily, I still have 100 more chances to try to prove myself as a finalist!

Thanks! Please share and subscribe.

    5. Free roam Korea
    6. Licensed parks and resorts - A Massif full of world known parks and resorts with replica design. Example: Whistler, Mt. Baker, Breckenridge

    1. Add a dominant stance and implement switch riding. This will easily double variations of tricks.
