I was wondering what the most technical and difficult trick landed to date was. I'm thinking stuff like the Double Half Cab Roll or a 900. <BR>What's the biggest and who did it???

I think that Parks &amp; Mark Kenney landed 1080's. But there is not one on film yet.

I think shipiro's triple speedball thing he was trying at double or nothing would be sweet, i dont think he landed any tho.

Scott, <BR> <BR>Parks Bonifay has landed one 1080 on film, a few years ago. Parks also used to do Whirlybird 720's wake to wake. Froggy Soven is now sticking Whirly-<font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font>, which are whirlybirds with a late backside handle-pass 360. <BR> <BR>Mark Kenney also had landed a 1080, and Parks is very close to a switch double backroll mobe, but I haven't seen him stick one yet. <BR> <BR>Moby Dick 540's are being landed a bit these days, and Brannon Johnson used to do Big Worm 720's (the "Big Johnson") <BR> <BR>Mike Isler

Mike, I don't think Parks is on video with a 1080, maybe in a series of snap shots. Otherwise the 1080 contest would be over. <BR> <BR>The whirley 7's are pretty sick also.

In double or nothing shapiro did a triple front not speedball and parks didnt get the 1080 on film only in a series of snapshots

Shapiro didn't land the trip and Parks didn't land the 1080.

its all a big conspiracy

powerchordkid87 07-25-2004 9:14 PM

parks has landed the switch double backroll mobe pretty cleanly. i have never heard of proof of the 1080s. just rumors.

ktmwakeboarder 07-25-2004 11:23 PM

I thought i saw Parks land the 1080 in a photo sequence in a magazine a while back... it isn't video, but was a really sweet sequence

p_b_parks 07-26-2004 6:03 AM

heres proof that he did it: go to <a href="http://www.wakeboardingmag.com" target="_blank">www.wakeboardingmag.com</a> goto moves then spin 1080 its there in a sequence

i belive the biggest trick was when my ass at the box at tsr

I pulled the biggest fashion air this weekend off the double up behind a jetski. Way technical and difficult. It has taken me weeks to perfect, don't even know if I will ever be able to do it again. Sorry didn't get it on video, you guys will just have to take my word for it.

wakeguru 07-26-2004 9:39 AM

No way. Those Jet Ski double ups are so elusive and to pull a fashion air off one is just ludicrous. You're a shoe-in for "Da Man Club". <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

I'm not denying that Parks landed that 1080 but there just aren't enough frames in that sequence for me to really make a mental picture. It looks like he went in wrapped to me judging from the first frame. Still very impressive. <BR> <BR>wakextreme: aren't snapshots film?

yellowdog 07-26-2004 11:54 AM

I can confirm Lyle's fashion air off the waverunner double up. . . I was spotting and would have filmed but I had one hand on the flag and the other on that little handle on the back of the seat. It was huge!!!

i heard at ride the spot during a class shapiro got all the way around on triple front but landed on his back and skidded but still rode it out
