I read on this forum that Harley has a secret trick for Oakley's Move of the Year. Maybe a HS w2w BS/FS 10? I bet he already landed a TS 12 off the D-up but he's keeping it under wraps. Currently he should win for his HS w2w BS 9.

With the deadline less than a month away, has anyone heard any rumors about what tricks are being thrown down?

Joe,
I'm sure Amber will win Women's Best Trick. Hands down.

Fooshee just landed a Slim 7 on the cable which is insane... but who knows with all these tricks under wraps.

What ever happened to Bob's Trifecta Mobe? Did he ever come close?

Last year Phil said in a WBM interview last year he was gonna try Whirly Dick 900's . And Chad Sharpe told me earlier in the summer that he was gonna try some Indy TS Double rolls to revert!

Keeping under wraps is pretty lame, throw your best shiat and if it is the best hammer, it will win. I don't think keeping it a secret makes it better. If yoiu are worried that someone will out do you, well they probably will anyways. I could see keeping a new bag of tricks under wraps if you plan to bust them out at a contest ala Shaun White.

Right now my vote would go to a double tanny to blind over any of the spins, and I actually much prefer spins to inverts, but that would have to look pretty cool, whee a spin of 10 or more is just so technically difficult but is just a blur. Hopefully, there will be a lot of hammers and the winning move can be debated all winter.

1. If you think the folks who are trying to win this thing don't know what everyone else is doing, you're crazy. We just aren't in the know enough to actually know. And why should we be?

2. Keeping a secret does make it better. Harf's 12 was one of the coolest things I've ever seen on a wakeboard. I wasn't there and I watched a cell phone video of the screen and I could still feel the excitement. Hell, I was excited. Part of that comes from the fact that it was pretty much a secret

3. See #1. Also, that's a really intelligent comment. If I land a 1440 and get worried somone will out do me, they won't.

4. Umm... this is a contest.

my vote is on Bob's trifecta, Trevor Hansens w2w double backroll is a very close second in my mind

i like the anticipation of trick of the year. It gets me excited about t he sport and gets me thinking of what i would personalyl liek to see. Im always surprised by the progression each year when the tricks are announced.

who knows what will win wakeskate move of the year. those guys are so gnarly

I don't know about anyone else, but I am so tired of the 1080. The trick is not stylish and is played out. I would much rather see a big air contest with old school tech-tricks (blind judge, t2b, 313, etc). I think everyone is now so focused on adding another 180 that tricks are hucked really fast and not stylish. Just my $.02.

fyi, move of the year isn't about most stylish tricks. it's about the hardest tricks landed as well as landing a trick no one's landed.

Alright im going to air out some of the rumors I have heard:
Harley- Blind Pete 5
Danny Harf- Blind Pete 5
Steel Laferty- w2w 1260

Personally, I don't think that another ts 12 off the double up should win. It is probably the hardest trick landed so far, but I think that trick of the year should always go to something that has never been landed before. I think a double invert will win it this year as it seems like lots of guys are working on them.

I totally agree that the award should go to something that has never been landed before. No repeats. There is no end to the progression in sight, and just when you think its all been done some person will invent a new trick.

I'm with Liveoz on this, why keep it under wraps?
If all the guys who genuinely have a shot at this know what each other has done then there is hardly any surprise.
If anything it holds back progression in the sport, if everyone just sits quietly by on rumours of what other riders have landed it removes a lot of the competitiveness.

The only real reason I can see in these actions are that if a trick is landed early in the season like Hansen's w2w double backroll for example, it looses a bit of it's excitment, it's been around for a lot longer in peoples mind, there is more buzz around a new trick that has been landed close to the deadline. Same reason Hollywood releases certain movies in "Oscar season".

/ 2 cents

Also,
Nick Davies... boat double s-bend
And the rumored 1260 is VERY unique as it was landed Wake2Wake (no double up). IF that really has gone down than **** has hit the fan

I understand keeping the move a secret. In my opinion the skill level of these guys is pretty close. And knowing what you have to compete against, can push an athlete to land something better (which wouldn't be in the best interest of the athlete that showed everyone what they're up against)

Not only that but the internet haters would be all over it on the site....No not another twelve...blah blah blah. That's a big reason why pro's dont post more...keyboard jockeys trying to tell them to wear a vest, do this, etc.

Ben,
Double S's have been done before behind the boat. Not to say that is one mother effin crazy trick with probably the most consequences out of any of the other tricks but that my make it difficult. Now he is sponsored by Oakley which helps
Old     (stevo8290)      Join Date: Sep 2008       08-13-2010, 1:46 PM Reply   
to me, the double s has HUGE potential for winning. I could be wrong but as far as i know there is no video of a double S being landed on boat. It will also depend on the double s itself. If its legit, a lot of people do an s bend kinda cheap these days, its kinda starts like a front flip then turns s. If its a legit laid out Double S on video... to me.. thats huge.

Didn't Shannon Best do it behind the boat soon after doing a normal S bend?

Andy Owings did it behind the boat around 1997-98.

I knew that, just was unsure of the exact date and i also meant to ask if anybody knew when is the last day they are accepting footy for trick of the year submissions?

I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned but my guess would be on harley sicking a KGB 7 off the wake.

He has the KGB 5 well enough to do for a wild card, and with a dumper off the wake i can see it easily.

Mobe 7's and Mobe 9's W2W are the next big step I believe. They are spinning 12's now I would like to see the mobes start going to 7 and 9
Old     (wakeboardern1)      Join Date: Aug 2007       08-17-2010, 1:23 PM Reply   
Have more 12's gone down than we thought? Cause my friend was talking to Danny at the awards ceremony at knoxville and Harf told him that he was going for a 12 on that double-up in the finals that came out as a massive 10 where he missed the last handle pass.

And after watching that highlight reel at the awards ceremony, I really have no clue who could possibly win this, since there are a few riders that are just insane right now.

W2W Backside 10? Has anyone done a toeside backside 9? If so, is a ts bs 10 remotely possible? The level that riding has come to is just absolutely insane.
