Seat whip?

So a while ago I thought of this trick its like how dan H swings the frame around on the table in U2 but with no table. So I tried it with pathetic results and I just found pics of someone doing it in yoggis gallery. How many people have landed this?

Thats a very cool pic...

I would say the first question would be, has Yoggi landed it? (or whoever that is, it doesnt look like yoggi)

I doubt that would be the case. That would ensure almost imeadiate breakage dont you think?

I remember someone once posting about how they learned to hop on an ultimate wheel, then learned to hop with the seat on the ground in front, and was planning on learning to hop forward over the seat, so they seat would be on the ground in back. that would be reeaally hard, but yeah, it seems kind of similar to the one pictured above.

I'd like to see a vid of that. I am trying to build up to a seat whip in the air (air whip?).

That wasn't me, but I'm at that point.

I dont get how he would hop that high without the seat, I dont think i can even hop that high holding the seat. Does he grab the tire with his legs or what?
Here is another pic that I didnt have time to post yesterday:

I would assume that you'd jump seat out really really high and shove the seat down hard...
