Is this a whirlybird. I've argued about it with my friend for a week. If not what is it?
thanks, Nathan

That looks like a Whirly 5 to me, he gets 1 and a half rotations in.

NOT a Whirly 5. Dude stops the 360 rotation at 180 and brings it down. Its like a funky over the head tantrum to blind.

well he's spinning bs, and he definitely doesn't spin past a 3. its gotta be a tantrum to blind (lands switch) or some off axis bs 1 or something. jus my 2 cents.

He completely does a 540, the 3 is off axis but every whirly 5 i've seen has the last 180 on the way down. Still looks like a Whirly 5 to me.
Can anyone find a video on a whirly 5 on water?

I am with cwb4me as he never rotates the entire 360 ole overhead. He stops his rotation and lands blind.

not sure how to embed videos, but watch the first trick this kid does. it's a whirly 5. it jus looks to me like the guy in the video above does not spin a 5.

here's another on water whirly 5. he doesn't land it but you can get an idea of the spin involved.

Here is a good video of a whirly 5. The kid on the tramp spins no where near it.

As a few people above have mentioned, that is definitely NOT a whirly 5. It is a funky tantrum to blind, or if you'd like an ole' backside 540. For those that prefer ole' bs 5, then a whirly 5 would be an ole' bs 900. Does that clear it up?
