I’m sorry I have no tips to give you but I would like to post anyways. This sounds like an awesome trick. If you ever land one you better have it on video. So you think it would be easier doing this trick (or skill?) down a small set of stairs instead of on flat ground?
I’ve thought about doing this trick, but I haven’t tried it yet because it sounds kind of tricky. I think it’s more of a No Footed Leg Wrap, because you’re only doing one leg. I think a No Footed Seat Wrap would involve bringing the whole uni all the way around your body, then landing back on.
In Shaun’s movie ILL, I managed to land a No-Handed Leg Wrap, but it’s kind of poorly filmed, really dark.
i tried it for a while on flat ground and can land it static every once in a while but i have found that on flat ground doing it moving is wayyy harder. also it doesnt look as cool as doing it down a stairset or gap.
once i get this trick dialed(i am confident that i will get it soon) then i am going to put together a video with this and some other tricks that i think might be original as i have never seen them done anywhere else…flips and spins get boring, it is time to bring street a new variety of tricks.
edit: let me clarify since i feel like i havent explained the trick very well. When i do it static it is just like jumping up doing a no footer but i wrap by leg around the seat and land back on the pedals. It is the same thing moving, but contrary to what seems to be common sense it is easier doing it down a stair set or gap due to the extra time in the air.
i have been having trouble getting my leg around fast enough, but practicing it static i think will improve my speed at it.
also, perhaps i called it the wrong thing when i said seatwrap. is leg wrap more appropriate?
The name for it would be Leg around or Leg around reverse (at least that what it is when done static).
In the air, it would probably be called the same thing only it would be said like “Dude, i just leg arounded that 3 set.”
A wrap is the trick that Dan heaton did (I think he may have invented, not sure though), where the seat wraps around the body in a circle (in defect he does a wrap, and then a wrap with two leg arounds in the shot after it).
I have tried this trick a few times, always unsuccessful though, would be cool to see some one get one though. I was trying them like a 180 unispin where you would swing your leg around the seat.
There’s going to be a lot of cunfusion if people start only saying “wrap.” There are many different kinds of wraps, so let’s try to refrain from saying “wrap” by itself.
Leg Around - Usually done as a mount, standing on the pedal and bringing the other foot around the seat.
Leg Wrap - Standing on the crank with one foot, bring the other foot around the seat.
Seat Wrap - Bring the seat all the way around your body, essentially a Leg Wrap with one foot, then pass the seat behind your back, then perform another Leg wrap in the opposite direction as your other foot.
Super Wrap - Basically a seat wrap but with wrapping each foot around the seat one more time. In other words, a Leg Wrap straight into a Seat Wrap straight into another Leg wrap with the other foot.
