So I've been away for a while...

what are the cool new tricks these days?

Welcome back Brian.

The two cool new tricks are the Maxwhip (seat whip done during a hop) and the front flip (now being done, at least by Max, from flat ground). Other than that it’s mostly variants on stuff that’s been done before.

I actually saw the maxwhip through facebook somehow…awesome!
…so is he still the only one doing it, or is everyone doing it now :slight_smile:

I think someone else hit something similar.

Oh, I forgot there’s also been a pretty big move towards brake gliding, especially in MUni contexts. (That’s gliding using the brake for modulation instead of the tire).

Adrien’s forward whip:
