I find a lot of modern tricks boring - this is not

    That's his submission for the Waterski Nation trick contest. The competition format improves the attractiveness of tricking, allows for unique and creative runs.

    @Chet and @Horton should they not be for credit?

    @unksskis They could be submitted for inclusion on the list, not sure if they every have been before - same with the "surface flip". Wildly cool looking trick and frankly looks easier off the surface than off the wake. The timing on the wake is critical for credit/no credit.


    Dorien really does the rotation well and the rope is clearly out of the water. Helps to have cat like reflexes it seems!

    Thanks @klindy , hopefully they are submitted if the skiers desire. Looking easier doesn't always mean it is, I'd leave it up to those doing them for that. The timing of the wake is obviously important for flips, but you can't really get a NC on a flip, even when it is one wake.

    I like the grabs that he adds on some, very slick

    @unksskis Agreed that just because it looks easier, that it really is easier. In terms of NC on a flip, I'd disagree. Especially some of the advanced flips, it's quite possible to get a NC.

    have to agree... very cool.
  • unksskisunksskis Posts: 473 Solid Baller
    @klindy not related to the wake, rotation and spin related yes, but tough to get a NC flip due to no air, too early, or landing short. Please clarify if I am incorrect.
  • klindyklindy Posts: 2,453 ★★★Triple Panda Award Recipient ★★★
    @unksskis gotcha. Probably true. If you took off too early you'd likely never get the rotation - unless your Dorien Llewellyn obviously!

    Is there anyone else who tricks with a different foot forward than they slalom with? It seems that this would be healthy for the back and hips, but would require an ambidextrous athletic ability that very few have.
