try asking on kitescoop.com

I cant think of anyone on the forum that is doing a double half cab right now.

there's already a thread going there about the double half cab here:

Yep, the Tack flip. I didn't want to get into that argument, but let's honor the champion.

Don't get me started...

Renaming a trick that is many years old is retarded.

Looks very much like you pop hard for as if going for a high 540 or 720 backroll
As you come out of the first 360 (just as you're starting to drop) initiate a back flip.

Much easier said than done I bet :)

1. It's not the same trick as what they are doing in wakeboarding as the first rotation is laid out. There are no two rolls happening.
2. A "cab" is not possible on a wakeboard so calling the trick a double half cab in the first place was dumb
3. That makes it a new trick and it has been named properly by the first person to land it in competition

aint nobody here that can help you in how to do the double half cab tack flip whatever you want to call it. But if you want arguing about what the name of the trick is called, oh we have you covered there no problem. :-)
