Ever seen this in wake?
 
I saw these on a sports industry site and wondered what wake would be like. Imagine a Scissor Kick 313 or Off-Axis looking like some round house kick. Anyone done this?

Ha, Ha. I wouldn't buy a pair of those, but a pass through the park would be a rip--especially after a few ales...

I guess boardslides are completely out, but you would do some slammin' daffys.

That has to be a joke...

jarrod 03-30-2012 8:23 AM

That was awesome! I don't see it taking off, but it looks like one more way to have fun on the mountain, or blow out your groin!

Props to the creativity.

and yes, they're called trick skis.

Well you are right on that! Y'all know i'm too old for it, but I really would like to watch a 313 on these. Im just saying.

YEP............trick skis!!

bcrider 03-30-2012 9:01 AM

Basically roller blades for snow. The hardcores can't be for this.lol.

I always thought to myself why havent these been created yet. Seems like ski-blading but so much more dangerous lol

captain_vilfo 03-30-2012 11:05 AM

i could also envision some scary falls on rails..

andy_nintzel 03-30-2012 11:24 AM

idk what to even think of this. The first thing that came to mind was sideways snowlerblades.

Bumpass1 03-30-2012 12:23 PM

Looks like nut crushers.

we used to have these, to teach people how to barefoot. we had a little fun on them at slower speeds like that too, but you could come out of these much easier. this was back in like the late 80's though.

k9fxr 03-31-2012 11:55 AM

Can you say groin tear?

nuckledragger 03-31-2012 12:47 PM

Yup, first thing I thought was rollerblades on the snow. That sport didn't last long in the xgames.

VinnyA 03-31-2012 12:52 PM

Has anyone done an astro kick on the systems yet?

captain_vilfo 03-31-2012 1:23 PM

i want a pair of those so bad

Ttime41 03-31-2012 1:55 PM

Vinny- In one of the latest Transworld magazines there is a pic of a gnarly one footer with the systems. I believe it was the march 2012 mag

irishrider92 03-31-2012 4:05 PM

I remember years ago seeing Danno the Mano shredding owc wearing a pair of "things" that he made himself, kinda like what sippi posted, with ski bindings. I wonder if you could do a sideways version, probably with a pretty featureless based board...hmmmm....

VinnyA 03-31-2012 6:55 PM

Thanks! yeah i tried my first astro kick snowboarding this year and it was just fun to play around. maybe we'll start seeing some winch foot plant stuff? lol

wakescene 04-05-2012 11:10 AM

Danno the Mano = Obscure reference of the day!

TheHebrewHammer 04-05-2012 12:45 PM

Haha, I'm amazed these work so well!
