WOW ive never seen a temper tantrum before, those look so cool. That double mute roll2revert was so clean as well... I would have a hard time picking a definitive move but all in all id have to say the w2w hs bs 10 by harley. No one has even come close to that even off a double up and he pulled that clean. All the other moves have been done before and quite frankly just dont do it for me like the hs bs 10
I had really high expectations so I was expecting a lot. There are some sick tricks in there, but I think last year's video impressed me more. I love the grabbed double inverts, but I just cant go crazy over the cable/kicker tricks in there. If the 515 or Adam Errington Trick or Dum Dum 5 were done off the wake/off the double up I would wet my pants. Same with the pool tricks...seems kind of gimmicky to me. Its just doing a kicker trick with slightly less hang time. Im sure its harder, but I just see a kicker mute mobe/BS 5/BS 7. Awesome stuff, but Id give it to Harley for his w2w BS 1080 or Harf's grabbed Temper Tantrum...it looks like that was off the wake too! Thats insane if it was sans double up.
So pumped to finally see this video. Definitely awesome
I too think the tricks off the wake are just in a different ball game. I am not hating on parks just totally different deal. The line/ handle at a park can't even be in same league as an 80ft'r behind the boat.
I'd agree with the Defy statement. I hope there's still a few hammers hidden in there. Some epic tricks in there. Rusty's double was STOMPED. Not the biggest, but holy cow. He just put that down like it was nothing!
Why werent they entered?! I remember seeing Harley try a Dum Dum 5 a few years ago but he didnt land it. If either one of them did I feel like that would have a great shot at winning MOY. Thats insane! A frontroll with a TS BS 5...there are only a few guys who can even do TS BS 5s and then youre adding an invert. Crazy trick. I want to see it!
Glad to finally see the tricks. I agree with everyone scratching their heads over the winner. I realize it's subjective, but there are at least three or more tricks I would have picked over the one that won. I would have even preferred the Dum Dum 540--though I really think cable/kickers should be a separate category from wake tricks. My favorites would have to be second place to Jeff's mute double roll 180, and I would give first place to Rusty's stalefish double backroll because it looks so sick and clean. I miss seeing another osmosis trick from Rathy.
I'm pretty sure he is the first to land that. I think saw Murray trying it in the crash section of All or Nothing. Definitely historic footage!
This trick could not have been nominated if it was a fake contest. Like I said before "you will notice that searching google will NOT find a 2011 deadline for this contest, nor will searching tagged articles for "Oakley Move of the Year" on WBM's website.
Actually, both the method of entry and the deadline were not posted online, so it was a secret to everyone on the internet. Last year WBM posted on their website the deadline and a formal request for entries. This year they didn't say 'boo'.
Since WBM did not use the internet to ask for requests in 2011, like they did 2010, it was not a fair opportunity for everyone who isn't a pro living in Orlando or Clermont. To keep something off the internet is the same as hiding something.
The internet shows us Oakley's MOY 2011 had:
no advertised deadline
no request for entries
no information on how to enter
no mention of a prize
So how is this even considered a fair contest when Frederic Von Osten had his KGB7 on the internet last July? Parks nailed his super clean double mobe on September 4, 2011 and his entry was still accepted. Frederic must have been before the deadline because his trick was landed before Parks'.
A KGB7 is a CRAZY trick!! It sounds like trampoline talk. That is a HUGE progression for wakeboarding! In all my complaining I don't want to lose sight of that. Still though. How is a KGB7 not even recognized in this contest when Parks already landed that trick before? Just like Randall has done a massive Mute HF7 before.
i dont think it was any secret about trick of the year, so they didnt put up a closing time, and those that wanted to could submit their entries, Cisco who do you know that couldnt get their entry submitted. Maybe fred didnt want to submit it, !!!!! KGB7 of the kicker is pretty cool trick there is no denying that, so what about harleys back mobe 7 w2w, or for that matter hsbs1080 w2w, there has been some pretty cool tricks go down in the last 12 months, i really think they should offer 2 different categories, one for cable and the other for boat, otherwise there will always be this division about boat and cable. Which is better, harder and so on.
Rucks mute back mobe into the pool was pretty cool, with alot more of danger element to it.
The judges decided and thats that!!!!!!!
Look out next year lets see what happens maybe a ts12 w2w or tsbs1080 of the double up. or maybe a double flip variation!!!!!!!!
that one was from the double or nothing contest, Harley also landed a w2w nose grab back mobe 7, it is on film somewhere, maybe youtube, i just cant remember.
Trust me Cisco im only a mushroom, they keep me in the dark and feed me on bull**** hahaha
If you watch slowmo vids of Harley, or almost any pro rider in fact, you'll see that they don't always pass palm to palm when they're spinning really fast. Sometimes they throw the handle a few inches from one hand to the other. Osmosis tricks are a completely different animal.
