OCD is the answer!

On a side note it's not 2000 tricks but multiple variations of the same 20ish tricks!

This. It's like calling a bs 180 and a fs 180 2 different tricks.

Yes - this is definitely true. But to me it seems like this is the case in nearly every disciplines, whether its sports, or art, or whatever. So in music for example, you learn fundamental scales, chords, and such. Then, after many years of practice you develop your own way of putting those together to create a style that is your own. The creativity and self-expression comes from the variations of those core items. I realize that is kind of an abstract comparison but as someone who plays music it was low hanging fruit. :lol:

Little things make a little difference, not a big one.
On the highest level it is like that.

I can flip the board forward and backward, same with spins. Now add jumps, Jesus walks, Beach Start, etc.
don't forget to add Back and Front rotations, as well as Front and back rolls (yes, it's not the same!).

So many variations possible if you can do all!

If you can't, you cannot imagine what is possible. The further you go the more is possible.

For some it might be all the same, for me it isn't. And it won't stop me, I will do more and more.

Have a list of about 1500 new ideas...and this doesn't include any kiteloops, switch or blind tricks...that would be another few thousands variations. Someone else can do that, not my thing.

And yes, I am that good that I can adjust quickly to new variations and therefore can land that many tricks in one session.

Give me a bigger SD card, and more space, and I will even do more 😁

Ps: yes, I have stickers with tricks to do on my board.
I start with some and then always new ideas and variations come on the fly...the creativity doesn't stop.

here you can see a list of the Beach Landings from Oct 13th.

For some disrespectful people it is all the same, for good riders it is a difference.

You can see the methodic I am using for my tricks when I ride and film...therefore it is easy to adjust small things quickly.
Here I was concentrating on the different ways of spins.
