Is there any way to see this footage or do we just have to wait for the hyperlite team video. I am really anxious to see this.

no video is going to be released until the movie but i can remember seeing a little footage if someone knows where it is

It will be on the team video. You just have to wait.

I could be wrong but I bet it's three full spins. a little more than a 900 but not a 1260... somewhere in the middle. While the 1080 is an impressive move, I get bored with spins alone. Gotta have style!!

Your crazy Toxis. 1080s are insane. Stop and think about it and besides Jimmy is like 18 and has already landed a 1080. Imagine what he will be doing when he is 25 if he stays healthy.

I hope that youtube video isn't what all the hype is about. Not legit unless it's landed behind a boat. Impressive, but not legit.

that 1080 off the kicker was posted on November 2007 so its not it. And Jimmy has a legit heelside 900 off the double so im not suprised that he can 1080 <BR> <BR>(Message edited by benj_t on December 24, 2008)

I love how people call kicker 10s not legit when just as few people have stuck 10s off kickers. They seem to forget that off the kicker you are landing in the flats completely, and it is one hard landing. I haven't see Jimmy's 10 yet off the boat but I did see him land 2 10s off the kicker at Rixen and let me tell you, there was nothing about it that wasn't "legit". It was huge, popped, and stuck, and he didn't start spinning till he was completely in the air.

this must make jimmy the first person in the world to ever land a 1080 off a kicker and also on the boat. thats pretty crazy.
