Interesting on the "skier" grip on a couple of tricks.

If you have a carbon or stiff handle, mount the Go Pro on the handle fornix (where the rope attaches) facing you. It gives an excellent perspective.

That is really cool. I like it because I have the hardest time visualizing inverts so it helps a little bit getting the perspective of someone actually doing it. The front roll(I think) that you almost bit it on looked super cool, just with everything coming around slower.

That was crazy!!! And yeah the skier grip was definitely weird but i have to say when you did the frontflip, then i put my hands in the skier grip and replayed it, it made sense. I really love the double angle. It made me feel like I was doing those tricks because thats exactly what it looks like in the air. I feel like I could watch that a few more times and not even have to warm up from the off season

Wow, that was really cool! Thanks for sharing.

I especially liked the whirly. I've thrown tantrums early for years and years. It was really cool to see how much your vision (or where you were looking) didn't change until you were already off the wake. I start kicking my head back WAY to early so it was just cool to see how long you wait to turn your head into the flip.

I just have always used the skier grip when I go to do a front flip, or front roll. The funny is when I do a front to fakie I use a normal grip. I guess I am just old school. Oh well it was fun doing to video.
