Action sports is a genre that has climbed claimed a lot of ground among fans in a very short period of time. The genre of Action Sports covers all sorts of games including Jet Ski, Skateboarding, BMX, Surfing, Snowboarding, MTB and many more. Though these games are not as widespread as some of the bigger names like Football or Tennis, yet you can find a crazy fan of these games in your neighbourhood easily. These games are all about high energy and intensely fervent and that’s why youth forms the backbone here. Now these games have their own major championships which are broadcast all around the world, but one thing that’s lacking from the mainframe is a global community which every game enthusiast is a part of. But even this void has been taken care of thanks to the latest iOS app called Shrick.


So Shrick is a platform for all these young minds to come and share what they have in store for the rest of the community. They can share their tricks which they’ve just figured out on the practice track. It can be an image or a short video so that other users can learn from it or even add their own style to it. The game supports a wide number of games including the ones I’ve mentioned above and the likes of Wheelchair skating, snowmobile, FMX, Scooter, Windsurfing and many more. So it doesn’t matter if you belong to one sport or the other, you all now have a common ground to show your skills. Another benefit that you get from this merging of different gaming stations is that apart from learning from the tricks that are specific to your game, you can learn from other gaming tricks as well as many of them are quite similar in their basic structure and moves.


Before you upload an image/video, you can further polish it to make sure it garners maximum likes and hits. You can use effects like fisheye or slow motion that break your shot video frame by frame and present your stunning moves in a breathtaking way that you’ve never seen before. After you’re done with the video, then you can upload it and challenge friends or other members of the community and find out who emerges out the winner on the leaderboard. There’s a constant struggle going on for the number one spot on the leaderboard and every time you add a trick or even a failure video, you get points which add to your grand total. Ranking has been further divided into your group of friends, your city, country and finally the whole world. So the more active you are; the more famous you will be.


Shrick has been very beautifully designed with smooth navigation and everything stacked in an intuitive manner. It’s a platform where you can share any information on Shrick including gears, latest updates in the sporting world and follow your favourite sports persons.
