Whips are starting to catch on. For years there were only a couple of people who could do them. Then someone new lands one at NAUCC, and now more people are figuring them out. They’re just too cool:
oh those crazy kids… what will they think of next?!?
I love to see people pushing the envelope, pretty insane!
Can’t wait to see some variations, like spinning it round as it flips… Or flipping it backwards…
I don’t do any tricks on my uni, but I still appreciate the skill
That. Trick. Is. Nuts.
The first one was done backwards.
I always thought it was called a ‘Uniflip’ (like a ‘Unispin’) - just goes to show how much I know about street/flatland.
Either way it’s an unbelievable trick. I only know one guy who’s even come close to landing one.
Hadn’t seen that one before…
so is a seat whip and a uni whip the same thing?
Max Schulze (2:14). It may be called a whip because he called his a “Max Whip”
The video being blocked by Youtube, here’s a copy:
I thought he meant fakie, not throwing the unicycle backwards.
So was the maxwhip the first whip? If not, what was?
I believe the second was by Adrien Delacroix, who did his forwards. He was also the first (and I believe still only) to land a front flip.
Max does a flip but its different. His is SIF, only a slight drop and a bit more of a side flip.
I think my mind just blew… I’m suing
He learned his flip by practicing jumping into a foam pit at a gymnastics center.
Max just practiced in similar conditions to the spots in the film I posted. Max said ~ how many times he tried, I don’t remember, but it was A LOT, for a couple hours over a couple of days.
Colby Thomas did uni backflips and the first 1080 unispin on a large trampoline in some of his older vids (youtube not working now so I can’t find one of the vids)
Tim Desmet landed one at 3:17 he also landed a whip at 2:20
