Most stylish looking tricks...
Some tricks just naturally flow and look good. What do you think the best looking tricks are...?

My top 5....
1. Pete Rose
2. Batwing
3. Stalefish Glide
4. TS FS OA 540 Mute Ole'
5. HS Back Roll To Blind Late/Tail

I can do none of them...but its good to have goals...

Front to Fakie
TS BS 180 (to Heelside Blind)
BW to Blind/OA TS BS 180
Bee Sting (Grabbed Vulcan)

.....would have filled out the top 10 for me...

I really like Pete's,too. I also think that TS/BS 180's look awesome. Especially off axis.

Really anything big and slow with a long grab.

No one has mentioned a fashion air?? Arguably the best trick of any set!

(not me btw)

How has an S bend not made anyones list yet?

boomshot 08-23-2010 12:51 PM

There is a trick I have seen a few people do, Adkison among them, which is basically a toeside roll to blind, but blind in a way that seems like he's going to choke himself if he misses it. It's incredible. I can't figure out how it's even done.

While we're talking about being amazed at how things are done - I have an easier time wrapping my head around a 1260 than a Pete Rose and that trick is now well over 10 years old. I just can not imagine...

i love chad sharpe's indy glide, randalls huge 180's into the flats and wraped 540's

kitewake 08-23-2010 2:47 PM

Chase...I mentioned the Bee Sting (Vulcan with a grab between the bend and the FS 180)...

ND does one here at 2:45 behind the boat... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLj5rKfj_pE

Take one of the highest risk tricks...add a FS one...then throw a grab in the middle... Yeah....

I'm surprised to see so many bat to blinds. I don't like the way they look at all. Give me a regular batwing or even a batwing to fakie/revert! I've always like whirly's and I think HS OA 1's look pretty cool when grabbed right.

Amber Wing's grabbed HS OA 3 looks pretty sick right now.

Gator's slob front to fakie in Mayday! Also, Mark Kenney used to do a great hoochie off the double up.

ColoRadDude 08-24-2010 9:35 PM

hawk22 08-25-2010 3:55 PM

hey lets try not to laugh at the fashion air...its the only saving grace to my run :)

hawk22 08-25-2010 3:57 PM

On a serious note, I saw pic of batwing (I didn't know what it was called at the time) and I was determined to learn it cuz it looked so cool. Oh yeah, there's another failed goal of the year :( How do you do anyway?

razorjaw 08-25-2010 7:20 PM

No way - these are the best tricks by far:

5. Whip around scarecrow
4. Toeside 180
3. Low, super quick Tantrum (the kind where it is initiated too early and their head almost touches the water)
2. Raley - no grab
and of course
#1 - Faceplant. Gets a cheer from our boat EVERYTIME!

drewproses 08-25-2010 10:22 PM

Pressed out back lip
Stalefish roll to blind
Any kind of double flip!
