I guess i just think this trick looks horrible, and im getting pretty sick of seeing them. Skateboarding pretty much got rid of em, maybe im just bitter.

opinions?

Some people flick those better than straight kickflips. But i'm not losing any sleep over this move.

Evan71, I couldn't agree more. I don't understand why anyone would want to or does this trick. Saying that there a couple really sweet ones that
i can think of (Yan's at Reeds house was huge and so perferct.) Realistically though this is the most over done trick in wakeskating, and I still dont understand that. I mean it's obviously good to learn (same in skateboarding^) but thats about it... I'm glad other people are relizing this to though hopefully it will change. It isn't going to though Laughing

I hate seeing hardflips a lot more than V-flips. There's only a handful of guys that make hardflips look good. I can't do either though, so I guess it doesn't matter

I agree with mr bueno. It seems like the board hits the water in some fashion before the rider lands when it comes to the great majority of hardflips.

I do like danny's varial flips (i have that old dvs ad in my mind). But i live in the past, so whatever.

Lollar, Thanks!, hey I'm not cold Twisted Evil hahaha... but yeah varial flips are probably my only negative opinion on this stuff, and it's really just for real video part sake (I'm talking about now, I'm not talking about parts in the past a lot has obviously changed.) and my the first sentence was fully sarcastic.

My bad if my post was a little harsh. I am a little sarcastic also I guess.

WERDna, I agree fully
