Check out the SLO at 1:49 right after the flip. Tell me that is not cool.

    @trickcoach needless to say your registration inspired me to post some old school tricks.

    those SLO's were the best , Patrice event pushed it to SL5B adding a Stepover on the last 180 , this looked pretty rad ... dunno why they decided to put a ban on 1 foot ski lines ... need to look if I have a video of Flip Stepover from when I had it put in the books !

    @trickcoach I have never exactly understood that trick.

    Always enjoy watching some old time trick runs. Amazing they could run 10000+ with very few flips. Now some guys have 6 flips and cannot run 10000. Also enjoy the variations and not the same six flips. Cory, Nick, and Patrice--GREAT.

    OK, Richelle needs to allow one footed stepover style SLO!

    Cory has the most incredible mix of tricks. Flips, ski lines, pure spins and stepovers - all extremely difficult and impressive. His toes also mix blazing fast surface tricks, big wake tricks and huge toe steps. Wow!

    He makes a good case for limiting flips as he showcases such trick diversity.

    Patrice is incredible too. So smooth. I loved his toe fall - where he just bounced back up and kept going! Who needs a stinkin release!

    Best posts ever @Horton !

    Nick is incredible too! So dominant and so skilled.

    Flip to LB? Wow!

    Last year i bought a used trick off ski it again. Pulled off the old front binding and found it was signed by Corey. Pretty cool.

    Why are tricks like SLO not allowed anymore. Both of them did some tricks that I am not sure what they are.

  • HortonHorton Posts: 27,728 Administrator
    @Chef23 SLO is absolutely still a trick but there are no ski line tricks anymore with one foot off the ski

    Got it. Is there a reason for the no skiline tricks with a foot off?

    I think in the beginning everybody was doing 1 foot off and then as they learned the tricks they started doing with two feet on the ski and the one foot off stuff just mostly became obsolete.

    @trickcoach does that sound right to you?

    Awesome! First video...sweet 1987 Nautique. Also, much more impressive is the trick run by legendary Cory Pickos of 10,800 points. With only 1 flip! 30 years ago! Wow...
  • Cooper_TrelawneyCooper_Trelawney Posts: 94 Baller
    Just watched the rest of the videos. All I can say is, Wow! There was, and always will be, some impressive skiing by the best in our sport!

    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    It is amazing how many tricks the high end trickers do in a pass. Particularly before they were doing flips. The hand passes of Corey & Patrice are amazing for the speed and smoothness of the tricks. The power in Nick's hand pass is crazy for the flips and ski line tricks.

  • eleeskieleeski Posts: 3,872 Infinite Pandas
    @Horton Regarding why nobody does stepover foot off style ski lines, AWSA rule 11.12 L "In ski line tricks, both feet must be on the ski". Stupid rule change with no reasonable justification that I heard of at the time it was changed. It made some really cool and fun tricks illegal. WLBB double step (SLBB by the old rules) was such a flash trick - as were all the stepover style ski lines.

    More work for Richelle in repealing this?

    Back to Cory, one of the most amazing things I saw him do was at a Nationals in the ‘80s. Just before the start of Open tricks, I was walking with a guy who knew him pretty well and here comes Cory using his trick ski like a platter to hold this huge burrito he was munching on. He stopped to talk a minute, as he finished it, then said he’d better get going and a few minutes later won the event. A little different prep than I’d imagined...
  • JetsetrJetsetr Posts: 321 Solid Baller
    Maybe that was the “secret” training! Chow down a monster burrito, make an awesome high scoring pass (so there wouldn’t be a runoff if tied) and make a dash to the Port O Let!

    I remember skiing at Cory's and at lunch time one day he ate like 3 large plates of spaghetti, and the Guy is skinny as hell. Man was I jealous.
    Special Thanks to Performance Ski and Surf and the Denali Adam's !!!
