i disagree. i think "big perm" is one of those names that makes wakeboarding sound lame. but whatever - i didn't invent the trick so i don't have a say in it.

i'm actually surprised that no one's shortened the "big worm" name to "b-dub".

Mark, that rotation was actually a 1080. If he added another 180 it would be a 1260.

This is called a Big Johnson and has been done many many times by the inventor Brannon Johnson.
Old     (ghettofab)      Join Date: Aug 2008       05-11-2010, 8:30 AM Reply   
me and nick talked about this. Did Brannon Johnson ever have video document of the "big Johnson" ?

Just reading that trick name reminds of the movie: Friday.

Big Perm. Big Worm.

Congrats to Nick! Yeah someone please stop the madness with these names. Off-Axis Ole 10 or something.

DC, i'm sure it is on video somewhere but back then people weren't bringing video cameras out for every set. I don't think he would have named the trick after himself if he never landed it, and for how easy big worms were for him along with his ability to effortlessly land blind, i would definitely not argue with him about landing a big johnson

Just to point out - this is a 1080 rotation. The first 3 is hard to distinguish but it is there - after leaving the wake Nick's body rotates 3 but when looking at the board, it is hard to see. Watch his shoulders.

I'll be the first to say BJ is/was a killer old school legend so I salute his riding. Whether BJ was the first to land this or not - it is somewhat irrelevant in today's terms. Nowadays w/ FB, Twitter, instant social networking - video is king. So let's give Nick Jones a hi-5 for letting us all see this move first hand. Thanks buddy!

On the slo mo, the rotation is easy to follow. Hands down, Ole 1080, no need for another name. Wish I could do it, sweet!

Awesome trick. Interesting that Alliance has the description of the video as a Big Johnson vs. big perm. I could have sworn the link called it a Big Perm earlier when I checked it.

Wow crazy trick!

Is a Whirly now an ole 7 and a Whirly 5 an ole 9?

I did, and saw a scarecrow, with then an overhead 540. Ole scarecrow 7 in my mind, or a Big Johnson/Big Perm. Stuck that landing!

Was that an invert? Jaw droppingly impressive I wish I could do that, or even half of that, but looks like an OA 1080 to me. He didn't get upside down really.

Nick is a really impressive rider. Have had a couple chances to ride with him and Robbie Carter a while back and it was a lot of fun. Halarious guys. Amazing riders. Nice to see some NW boys coming into their own and making some noise

Joe,

For the sake of argument:

I see 720 degrees of FS spin plus a toeside front roll invert. If you break the trick down it is a toeside frontside 180 into a switch whirly five.

Are Whirlys no longer considered inverts?

I just do not understand the push for a change in terminology. People wanting to call crow mobes and HS Backroll Mobes Ole 720's.

Is it to relate better to snowboard terminology?

If you did a mute crow mobe into the wrap and a mute TS FS OA ole 720 in a contest would they count as different tricks?

I remember when Watson first started doing the mutes crows and mute HS backrolls Ole style and remember how unique it made his riding look.

I don't get it the change in terminology either. We're really splitting hairs again. The day I hit my first backroll to revert I hope my boys aren't like "Ummm actually, that was a hs ole 5" ... maybe Parks never hit a double half cab roll nor a double mobe. Maybe they're really double cork 9 and double cork 10

John,

I can see where they get the 1080 rotation but I also can see where you are correct as well. I think we need to stop arguing semantics for the sake of arguing.



This trick is in fact Big Perm/Big Johnson whatever the correct way to call it. You can't count his "TS frontroll" as one of his rotations.

John i did the math and broke down the trick into an equation which will clearly end this discussion for good.

As you can all see this ends in an endless loop so the final answer is that it is in fact an awesome trick.
