Damn, Aaron Rathy can't even bask in the glow of his first 1080 for 24 hours before someone else drops a hammer! These pros are going nuts this season!

Rusty just called me and told me he hit a heelside backside 9. It's on video and we'll hopefully have that later today, but he was really excited and wanted to drop the news.

thats insane... we now have a handful of guys that have landed 10's, probably a dozen who have the skills to attempt one legitimately, and now the HSBS 9 goes down... wow... thats CRAZY... just from a few years ago... INSANE! Congrats to Rathy and Rusty!

switch toe 1080 is the exact same trick as a back 900

Damn I just landed the BS 180, I got a lot more to go. Way to throw down Rusty!

kamper, think about it..think, think about it...

hope there are some people on here that enjoy Flight of the Conchords as well..

go tell Rusty that a sw ts 1080 is the same as a bs 9... either way,i disagree
Old    Eubanks (eubanks01)      Join Date: Jun 2001       06-25-2008, 2:34 PM Reply   
Which would you rather see...a BS 9 or a huuuuuuuuuuge BS 180 into the flats?
Old    Trevor (hawk7)      Join Date: Apr 2007       06-25-2008, 2:37 PM Reply   
I thought for sure it would be soven or hutton. so many times I've seen soven stop spinning at 7 with time for a nine. Congrats to rusty though!
Old    derek (to_blind)      Join Date: Mar 2007       06-25-2008, 2:38 PM Reply

that's great, lots of cool stuff going down...seems to come in waves, nice to see the pros pushing it. grab variation 10's or a 12 coming soon? I bet a wake to wake 10 goes down soon too.

Nice Rusty! Is Danny healthy? If so, he'll probably land a grabbed BS 9 in a day or two. It seems like these things are happening in pairs and the next time it is stuck, somebody steps it up a notch. The fame is fleeting, but this has been a fun year to watch these guys push the sport.
Old    Trevor (hawk7)      Join Date: Apr 2007       06-25-2008, 5:00 PM Reply   
Stephen, I second that, I could see danny landing one still injured, not to say it's an easy trick, but someone else landing one is even more motivating. Is anyone doing plain wake fs 9's?

a lil sketchy... but rediculously huge, legit and sick... did i mention rediculous.

congrats rusty. bs 10 may not be far away

He almost fell into that last 180.
Man he was spinning so fast..... What a Crazy few month's this has become!

congrats rusty!

higgins, i agree...harf will probably grab indy, then do the 9, then grab indy again on the way down!

That was massive, and a bit sketchy (but a nice save) and kinda late, he coulda got one more 180 in there surely...

Haha, way to go Rusty, that was awesome.
Old    Henry Gates (captain_vilfo)      Join Date: Apr 2007       06-26-2008, 4:44 AM Reply   
sketchy but frikin awesome!

of all people rusty shouldve been the one to land it anyways, that rotation is basically the exact same as his switch toeside 1080 except he takes off on his normal heel and passes right away.
Old    Andy Nintzel (andy_nintzel)      Join Date: Sep 2004       06-26-2008, 6:23 AM Reply   
you can totally see him spot his landing at 7, that last 180 is just pure rusty power! Amazing. I bet he could have taken that to 10, he def has the lift!
Old    David F (focker)      Join Date: Aug 2006       06-26-2008, 6:49 AM Reply   
I havn't even seen it yet but the only other person I've seen that can land as hard as Rusty in the flats would be Shapiro. I think i remember seeing the first 10 Rusty did and he landed blind in the trough and just muscled through the landing - RIDONKULOUS!

BS 9 - Hell, to the yes.

Did you notice it's labeled as a 1080? :-)

Call me out of the loop, but what happened to Danny Harf? Some made mention above about an injury?
Old    Ben Ax (hawkeye7708)      Join Date: Feb 2007       06-26-2008, 8:28 AM Reply   
Yeah, he hurt his back earlier this year. Just a question, can anybody clarify what they mean in their lil' blogger thing on www.Alliancewake.com ? "Not A True Make"? just wondering if anybody can shine some light on that
Old    Bhyatt (bhyatt_ohp)      Join Date: Oct 2007       06-26-2008, 8:30 AM Reply   
"Not a True Make" = He didn't stick it. It was fairly sketched out. Impressive, but a sketch landing.
Old    Nick (shagman)      Join Date: Sep 2004       06-26-2008, 8:57 AM Reply   
This stuff about about "sketched out, not legit, not a true make" never ceases to amaze me. Did he not spin 2 and a half time before coming down? Sure it wasn't perfect, but he didn't butt check or anything that I would consider cheating his way through it. Good job Rusty.

Alliance is lame for calling it not a true make

give the guy credit, I'm sure no one over there can even come close to anything Rusty does

stop hating behind your desks and give him ALOT of credit, he deserves it
Old    Stephen Higgins (srh00z)      Join Date: Jun 2003       06-26-2008, 2:55 PM Reply   
I think Rusty will stick one much cleaner within the next week that will take care of all the "not a true make" talk. He didn't stomp it clean, but he landed it without a doubt. He seems like a perfectionist, so he will improve upon it.

ya i agree with dirty that dope no matter what!! stop hatin. He probably already stomped it clean as we speak.
