I was looking at the INT trick list and this is what it is. H/S roll to revert with a rewind. Just like a elephant. Strange anyone seen or done it. I think my goofy move is a frantrum to fakie

I've heard of it, but have only seen it done once on WakeTV issue #14. Jacob Lokin (sorry if I butchered his name) does one on there, not sure if it is on purpose or not, but he does a complete roll to revert, even letting go with his lead hand, then at the last second he pulls it back around and lands with only his back hand on the handle. Not a common trick at all, but pretty impressive looking if you do it right.

yep, easy, Andy is right on. i called it a backroll shifty, but my buddies kept saying "do the roll-elephant" and it stuck and became rollephant. i was competing in INT way back when and did one in a contest. They later asked me what it was and I told them. next thing I knew they added it to the trick list and its been on there ever since. I didnt invent it for sure, but it ended up on the INT list from me, and the funny name my bros gave it. back then new tricks were coming out all the time but the people running the event were all skiers and didnt know the first thing about wake tricks. So everytime they would see something new they would give it a point score and add it to the list, since people had to have a named trick pass back then.

Cool, to know one of our fellow wake worlders made the trick. Now I am going to go out and try a few next time out just for fun. Hope I don't do a rollephant to yardsale

If squid has a yardsale, I'm buying all his old boards.
