I was wondering what the most technical and difficult trick landed to date was. I'm thinking stuff like the Double Half Cab Roll or a 900.
What's the biggest and who did it???

I think that Parks & Mark Kenney landed 1080's. But there is not one on film yet.

I think shipiro's triple speedball thing he was trying at double or nothing would be sweet, i dont think he landed any tho.

Parks Bonifay has landed one 1080 on film, a few years ago. Parks also used to do Whirlybird 720's wake to wake. Froggy Soven is now sticking Whirly-, which are whirlybirds with a late backside handle-pass 360.

Mark Kenney also had landed a 1080, and Parks is very close to a switch double backroll mobe, but I haven't seen him stick one yet.

Moby Dick 540's are being landed a bit these days, and Brannon Johnson used to do Big Worm 720's (the "Big Johnson")

Mike, I don't think Parks is on video with a 1080, maybe in a series of snap shots. Otherwise the 1080 contest would be over.

The whirley 7's are pretty sick also.

Shapiro didn't land the trip and Parks didn't land the 1080.

I thought i saw Parks land the 1080 in a photo sequence in a magazine a while back... it isn't video, but was a really sweet sequence

I pulled the biggest fashion air this weekend off the double up behind a jetski. Way technical and difficult. It has taken me weeks to perfect, don't even know if I will ever be able to do it again. Sorry didn't get it on video, you guys will just have to take my word for it.

No way. Those Jet Ski double ups are so elusive and to pull a fashion air off one is just ludicrous. You're a shoe-in for "Da Man Club".

I'm not denying that Parks landed that 1080 but there just aren't enough frames in that sequence for me to really make a mental picture. It looks like he went in wrapped to me judging from the first frame. Still very impressive.

wakextreme: aren't snapshots film?

I can confirm Lyle's fashion air off the waverunner double up. . . I was spotting and would have filmed but I had one hand on the flag and the other on that little handle on the back of the seat. It was huge!!!
