Skill list

I am thoroughly enjoying the feedback on my initial post.

A few comments:

  • Yes, don’t take the list too seriously. I was initially just trying to put
    down everything I could think of.

  • Some skills such as still stand and twisting are added to level 11, not
    because they are hard but because they are missing from the 1-10 skill list.
    They are important skills, so ideally we should include them in an earlier
    level, perhaps level 6.

  • I will update the list with people’s suggestions and repost it occasionally.
    However, I will only keep tricks done on a standard unicycle with no props.
    If someone wants to keep a list of other neat things with props or novelty
    unicycles that should be a separate list. I think my list will be quite
    finite but ever increasing as there are a lot of original people out there.

  • I would hope to add to the list names of people who can actually do
    the skill.

  • My list should be good input for additions to the standard skill list. I too
    used to think the standard skill list is inadequate. However, the biggest
    problem with standard skill is that we don’t have enough competitors and
    judges that understand the event. And we don’t have enough qualified judges
    that understand the skills we have now. This will improve as the sport
    continues to evolve. We need to master and tune what we have without adding
    the complexity of additional tricks most people have never seen.

  • My dream is that some day unicycling will be in the Olympics. I hope I live
    long enough to be there as a judge.

Sorry I have not been following the tricks but I saw a unirider on TV do
this and I can't but thought it was trick. He went up and down stairs. He
basically went parallel with the steps and bounced the uni up/down to the
next step.
