Watch this video and at 1min and 30secs this guy does this roll but it doesn't look like a roll. Can someone please shed some light on what trick this is and how hard is it to do? I saw this trick and i instantly wanted to learn it. Thanks josh

it's an elephant. It's a crow but then you go back to your normal stance. There is another angle of it in the movie. Let me see where it's at.

Looks like an frelephant to me. (half TS front roll / half elephant).

And no that's not a trick I just made that up!

hahaha Rick is correct. He doesn't really do it right. Learn a TS front. It looks much better IMO

I don't think you could really call that a true elephant in a textbook sense! LOL

watch the trick at 42 seconds. That's more of a correct elephant.

it almost looks like the old, eject from a toeside off axis spin. Like when you are fully commited, but then notice the rollers you are gunna land on, and have to eject.

It was definitely thrown in "no-mans land" that's for sure.

The wall of water is two boat running side by side where the wakes come together!

HIM has been my fav band for years!! Since the pre Bam days when the only way we could get there suff in the US was off the net! (there from Finland) Good to see them get some love! If you like that you will love all there stuff! I have like them for like 5 years have every CD and still never get tired of them! The song Grubb rides to on All or Nothing is a HIM song and the Into is also the start of a HIM song! The first time I watch All or Nothing my jaw drop after the first few seconds of the video! In 02 nobody knew who HIM was in the US!

It's hard to call it anything because it's kind of inbetween all of the trick mentioned above.

I agree the 42 sec clip is as close to an elephant as most of us non pros will get(we cant all be (Greg N) ,nice trick but the 1:30 trick is just a two handed front roll where he lets go late with back hand ,nothing more nothing less IMO
