In the interview with Evelyn Zerr, they talk about a "Suicide Fat Rocket" trick which apparently Evelyn invented. Sounds really slick! <BR> <BR>I notice that "suicide" anything doesn't appear in Wakeworld's trick list, but INT gives +200 points to any trick when you do it "suicide", i.e. release both hands and then regain the handle. <BR> <BR>My questions are about how to start "suicide" tricks. What's a good trick to start with? Say a simple wake jump or 180? What are the key points on releasing and regaining the handle?

A suicide falls somewhere along the lines of a handle pass. Just tug real hard as you come off the wake and ther should be enough slack in the rope that you will follow the handle long enough to regain it. I wouldn't start adding 180 in until you have a solid sucide down otherwise you might find yourself catching a little more edge then you would like, hehe. anyways, i hope that helped. have fun ridin.

So does that mean an osmosis 540 should be called a suicide 540? aren't they both basically the same thing?

by no means should a osmosis spin be reffered to as suicide. Anything above a "no-handle" 360 is much, much, much harder than a suicide. And besides, osmosis spins are so rad, they deserve there own name.

What a gay name, suicide fat rocket. Anyways, Chase Heavener was the one to start doing sucicide tricks.

Was in Austin this past weekend at the Malibu Just Ride Series and saw Ryan Wynne pull off a Suicide Raley. He came in cutting hard for the Raley pulled it off and on the way down let go of the handle and grabbed it again before he landed. It was off-the-hook. I thought it was one of the sweetest tricks I had seen all weekend.

Hey John he brought that to a krypt,He did a huge raley as he pulled it back down he dropped the handle and then yanked it back to his back hip and landed 180.So it was a suicide krypt But John it was sick and i think if it was a real tourney he should have won hands down ,all big sick <FONT COLOR="ff0000">••••</FONT> he threw..later <BR> <BR>Bill
