Last week Rathy landed a switch toe 10, a first for him. I'm surprised it hasn't made the alliance or this site yet, are people doing 10's not news any more?

DU 10's are old news.
A wake to wake 10 will be news. A back 10. A toe back 10. A clean 12.
Progression baby!

Toe back 10... not sure if I'll ever see the day. front hand initiated spins are a biotch. That 10 would be news. What am I saying, all 10s are huge dub or not!! Congrats Rathy!!!

No one has landed a regular heel 1080 if I'm not mistaken. One reg toe, multiple switch heel/toe.

I thought Harf hit a heel 10?

In any case, way to go, Aaron!

He landed it last week in NZ.Probably why it was not such a big thing here. Mainly because hardly anyone knew.

I have to jump in here and throw down an opinion that I think most of you will agree with. These guys are so good switch and regular that they really don't have a switch. If they have only landed a switch heel 10 pursay without doing a regular 10, then it should not be called switch. Until you are doing that trick switch and regular, then claim it as switch. It is like on x-games snowboard big air where the guy did a switch 12 and the other guy did his trick regular and they were hootin' and hollerin' that this dude should advance because his trick was switch. If you can do a 1260 switch, then i am sorry, it does not add any more difficulty then doing it regular. In fact the bigger seems harder to do regular so I almost am giving more props to them right now.

and Darren, maybe they are intentionally keeping this one under the radar so they can use it for some video footage. Every time lately someone lands an amazing trick, the clip pops up and then when we see it in the video, we just think "meh i've already seen that switch heel 10 before". Now when they release the video, there can finally be some surprises. Something gives me a feeling more than just this 10 has been landed on film without us knowing...

Kyle, I agree. Although most probably still have a dominant stance, the difference between the two is pretty null.

progression isnt in the tresspassing but in the location and how you use it :-)

Props to Rathy, I cant wait to see it

Well, there has to be a reason that no one has landed a reg. heel 10. Danny in 2006 started the trend of 1080's being landed regularly and multiple 10's have been landed switch heel and toe, one regular toe, but no regular heel. I agree that pro's ride switch as good as they ride regular, but if has to be seen that no one has landed a reg heel 10, so that is a feat that people should be gunning for.

It's like Shane's toe back 720 two years ago. It was a big deal when he landed it. Just as it will be a feat when someone lands the reg. heel 10.
