Is This A Whirly Bird?

Is this a whirlybird. I've argued about it with my friend for a week. If not what is it?
thanks, Nathan

austin_the_wakeboard_man 07-13-2010 4:25 PM

Actualy its not a whirly 540 it looks like i half a whirly like maybe an offaxis ole backside 180

landowakettu 07-13-2010 4:32 PM

Ok Im retarded that isn't a whirly 5

austin_the_wakeboard_man 07-13-2010 5:19 PM

yea i looked closer it a offaxis ole backside 180

That looks like a Whirly 5 to me, he gets 1 and a half rotations in.

NOT a Whirly 5. Dude stops the 360 rotation at 180 and brings it down. Its like a funky over the head tantrum to blind.

Weird T2B with overhead, or ole back5 I think

WATCH HIS FEET AND HIPS.he does a 540 but it's part on axis part off axis.but not a whirlybird.

jsw 07-14-2010 10:34 PM

well he's spinning bs, and he definitely doesn't spin past a 3. its gotta be a tantrum to blind (lands switch) or some off axis bs 1 or something. jus my 2 cents.

Kane 07-15-2010 4:14 AM

He completely does a 540, the 3 is off axis but every whirly 5 i've seen has the last 180 on the way down. Still looks like a Whirly 5 to me.
Can anyone find a video on a whirly 5 on water?

jason95gt 07-15-2010 4:39 AM

I am with cwb4me as he never rotates the entire 360 ole overhead. He stops his rotation and lands blind.

jsw 07-15-2010 8:37 AM

not sure how to embed videos, but watch the first trick this kid does. it's a whirly 5. it jus looks to me like the guy in the video above does not spin a 5.


here's another on water whirly 5. he doesn't land it but you can get an idea of the spin involved.

Here is a good video of a whirly 5. The kid on the tramp spins no where near it.


austin_the_wakeboard_man 07-15-2010 8:28 PM

now that i looked closer i think it like a tantrum2blind with an ollie like half a whirly i use 2 do that like the first time i tried a whirly on the water except the handle would still be over my head when i landed and i would crash

travis_briscoe 07-23-2010 8:30 PM

As a few people above have mentioned, that is definitely NOT a whirly 5. It is a funky tantrum to blind, or if you'd like an ole' backside 540. For those that prefer ole' bs 5, then a whirly 5 would be an ole' bs 900. Does that clear it up?

Got it......
