Well, a year ago or so I was working with the rollercoaster. deffinately lots of stuff can be done with that. Lots of new no footed tricks. I posted this a while ago. Not sure if Martti has seen it.  If so, enjoy again I guess.

What would the definition of a kick flip be anyways? Does it have to be where the wheel lifts off the ground? Or is it just the flip or switch of the wheel without use of hands?  Because in that case both alex and dez did kick "flips". I agree with the second definition...
I saw Alex go around the wheel, not vice versa.  Let me know if I missed something.  I feel stupid questioning this cause his link is dope, but I'm just trying to make sure I understand what a kickflip is.

In my personal opinion on the trick, I'm in steamboat position, and I still consider this to be behind the bars body position.  I allow the pressure my foot puts on the peg to flip the wheel when its about to turbine.  I would consider mysel dong more of a kikflip then an "around the world" type thing.

Everytime I watch that video by Flatdream I feel like I am looking in the past at an earlier video of some top pro.  You have TONS of potential dude! Keep it up and stick with it.  Big things ahead for you!!

First off, i would really like to congratulate Mrs. Kuoppa n' Gomes for the opportunity to us to show our humble skills gathered over long hard yrs of practicin'

I was the one who edit the Leo Claro pegless footage. Leo (short for Leonardo) is an amazing brazilian rider who has joint our sport since 1986. He's 36 age now, seeme like a kid in vid. For the past 20 yrs, since I begin to ride flat', i have been seing all sorta tricks from him, from the old school braked ones to the nowadays trends like pumpings, scuffless n' stuff. He is able to ride bothsides, but actually he is more like counter clockwise spinning style o'riding direction.

Anyways, Mr. Kuoppa, if one o'my fellas deserves some prices, you could sure talk to me, i got'em addresses.

peace,

=c=

ps. Me and Leo have seen together the kgb Impulsivity DVD. Well, what we got to say is: Kuoppa has the hardest tricks weve never seen bfore. Gomes has got a brilliant style and criative links ever. The whiplashes x-foot is outta this world! You DEFINITIVELY have written yo names into the book of flatland history for sure, together Kevin and Chase!

Yeah, Leo 36?  Really?  Wow.  I see he has been puttin in the work all these years.  Someone give this guy a sponsorship...or send him a bike!  I think he very well deserves something for his hard work and progression!
