Shrick: The App

Shrick is a new mobile action sports community app that lets you connect and compete with others.  How does it work?  Basically, a user can upload a picture or video, and each post gains points.  Different types of content get different amounts of points- you can upload fails, lands, your gear, or even lifestyle shots.  On top of that, you can compare yourself to local riders and even across your whole country on the leaderboard. 
Shrick includes pretty much every action sport imaginable- from scootering and skateboarding to windsurfing and jet skiing.  So you can also follow your favorite athletes and friends from across all genres of action sports.
I decided to take the app for a test run.  The Android version was recently released and I uploaded an old clip from the spring.  I also tried to search around a bit, found some other scooter riders who uploaded stuff, as well as some riders from other disciplines who have gained a large following on the app.  There does seem to be a few bugs, but as the Android version is pretty new and not yet tested by as large a demographic as Iphone users.  So, I’m sure they’ll be resolved within time.
