i will never know for sure if i invented them (well invented if a tall order - mostly from other board sports..) but i never seen anyone else try before I landed them. They probably did though...

360 push shuvit on surfboard
Nosetrip front roll to backside power slide
Surfboard kickflip
One foot strapless surfboard airs
Surfboard push tack

This is cool thread, any kind of progression ideas can lead to awesome stuff, even if tricks seen as a bit lame to start with... it just inspires other to another step which is cool. So many transitions tricks haven't been landed yet.. Imagine powered transition mobe variations. People used to ask how it was possible to stay in control strapless so many years ago, how times have changed for the better. I remember having the idea for darkslide blind judge 3 on this forum and seeing Jesse Richman stomp one not long after, not sure if inspired from my ideas but awesome all the same.

More ideas please... u gotta think outside the box to innovate sometimes

Heres a shot of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDuvBPEVRzw&feature=share

Well done :thumb:

I am myself a toeside addict when i comes to "transitions" on my strapped surfboard directional

I liked them all with downloops

Similar to what you do but in mid-air downloop kite by pulling bar in with forward hand

Toeside backs (air tacks w/downloop) land heelside

Toeside forwards (540 w/downloop) land heelside

Toeside jump into tabletop w/ downloop land heelside

Reason i like it is because i land with lots of speed and power

Of course all those 3 above transitions i also do from heeside and land them toeside

They are my 6 bread and butter moves

I like to time them just right and land them on wave faces as much as i possibly can :D

................................ :surf: :sun: ......sorry no video..........................................................................

I'd love to see these. Dont forget your camera next time youre at the beach. However I'm gonna try em with the downloop. I've just been a bit scared to pull the downloops so far with my knee issues. kiteloops with the back hand are no problem though. I'm sure its a similar feeling

I got one....have not seen it done in my little Atlantic pond on strapped surfboard...yet

Toeside right foot back head out towards a nice 4ft wave SSE (side side on) 15-20mph on 12M

Take off toeside and send board into (seemingly backward) tweaked tabletop at the apex of jump

Before untweaking send the kite back into kiteloop ...feel the boost..and land toeside planing

I doubt i invented that.........so i will not take credit for it at all.....but it is Supafun to do!

You can do also the whole move without the kiteloop...it feels real sweet..and looks pretty stylish

Take off toeside...land toeside.......just add something in between

Ok that's enough about what i think i have done........................"next please".....

P.S. NED Yes i do stay upwind Supaez too (as a trick)............. for my kitesurfing age :lol:

Hehe!! I meant that Dimitri suggesting that he invented upwind, that shows he has been around since the very beggining of the sport. You as well Supa? :cool2:
