Trick: Scuff Coast-Jon Atwell

1 foot standup coasting backwards has been done before, but wow… thats a extremly nice combo!

Ive combined it. Ive rollingwrap-backroll-scuffcoast?-rollingwrap-varialroll-outsideroll. And ive landed backroll-3.5revs scuffcoast

genial trick and so clean done
can you do it longer?

going to work on that later today but i think so dude

It didn’t sound so cool when you told me about it.

But it sure looks nice :wink:

I liked the little celebration hop too.

Sweet. But its just a Donkey Coast :stuck_out_tongue: Adrien and Daniel Adelander have done them in similar combos.

1 foot standup coasting backwards was done before people even thought about donkey kicks. Why do you guys name everything after those street/flat tricks?

1 foot standup coasting backwards may sound stupid, but thats what it is, nothing else.

The better a flatland rider gets, the more he gets into freestyle IMO. There are just a few tricks that are different (and of course the judging).

Its easier.

I agree, but thats just for people here in the forum.

If you ask a freestyle rider to do a donkey coast, he will be like: What? :thinking:
You should at least know the “real” name haha :wink:

Does anyone else think that the “donkey” prefix sounds ugly?
I think scuffing sounds cooler and its more similar to flatland bmx.

So true!

Donkey sounds really weird, but in Europe everybody is used with that name in flat, so it will not change… Anyway, Scuff Coasting sounds way better!

I dunno… “donkey punch” kinda has a nice ring to it.

haha! i was wondering when someone would say that.

ok so heres my reasoning for calling the trick “scuff coast”…one- i wasnt trying to rename it, i had no idea that it was already named. two-the name scuffing comes from flatland bmx, the trick scuffing is where you stand on the frame and push the wheel with one foot. theres a unicycling trick that is similiar to scuffing and didnt have a name so i thought scuffing was appropreate(spelled terribly ha). this trick was scuffing without pushing so i thought scuff coast sounded better then stand up seat infront one footed coast. as much as that does roll off the tounge i thought scuff coast was still better. theres the wonderful fairytale behind the name. so i guess take the name or leave it. its not my trick to name so yeah.

oh and btw…donkey coast sounds really dumb haha but if thats what adrien wants it called its his trick to name.

Ehhh… Scuff sounds about as bad as donkey to be honest. Neither rolls off the tounge.

Well not really. He was just the first to do it in a flat combo (either him or Daniel). Julien Monney does it in the koxx roadtrip freestyle vid from 05.

I think my biggest problem with “donkey” is that it makes me think of the awkward animal. A “donkey coast” doesn’t look like a donkey at all :wink:

Advantage of freestyle names is that they’re pretty self-descriptive. All those donkey coasts and sex changes can be quite hard to guess unless you’ve seen it.

I think scuff coast sounds better. But doesnt anybody else think Donkey coast is cool because of the animal in the name?
