Unreal Tricks

Hey hey,

How's everything going? So, I was browsin and i came across the dew action sports tour website, where they have those trick of the week contests. Check it out...Ryan Nyquist, with a sick 720 Truck Driver, Alistair Whitton with his handplant hand slide, and Keith McElhinney with the first ever front flip flair on the vert, are all up for it!

Check it and vote!!! If these guys win they get mad cash:

Whose trick do you guys think is the best? Personally, Iím very tornÖbut I love Nyquistís 720

It's not a 720 truckdriver. A truckdriver, by definition, is a 360 barspin. If I remember correctly, Jay Miron coined the term "drunkdriver" for the 720 barspin way back when he was trying them.

Anyway, I'd probably want to see McElhinney win, just due to the fact that he's nearly 40, and that his manuever is entirely new (Nyquist landed the DD over a year ago, and handplants have been going down since the '80s).

He's been trying those since at least 1993, and he finally landed one last month.

And let us not forget about something that happened a while back that's JUST as insane as what is happening today...Matt Hoffmans no hander 900?

That was SO ahead of it's time.

Yes, the windshield whipper is quite the aerial manuever, and I'd say that it beats the frontflair, seeing as how Sparks didn't stack like McElhinney did.
