errrr, does that mean its a full front roll then land to blind (this being the 180 part), or is it a stalled frontroll (180 all together) to blind?

Keep in mind when you do a Hasslehoff, it must be done in slow motion with music by Journey or similar band playing in the background

A flip is not a roll. For a flip the board must rotate tip over tail. In a roll the board rotates heel over toe or visa versa.

i know its a flip but i just said roll because the pkra would just claim a switch frontroll to blind as a hasslehoff anyway, hey arron hadlow thinks hes doing whirly threes when all hes really doin is a double dangle front pullup 3.
