Who care's about the 9 the comments on that are gold.

"wont it be great when all skate-tards break their nex and go to that big ramp in the sky?"

"Thats so not the best skateboarding trick, What about that trick at the XGames in July. When Bob Burnquist Grind over the Mega rail and jump off his board for a moment and landed back on the board as it was still grinding Now that was a good SkateBoarding Trick, this one doesnt look any different it looks like something Tony Hawk has done already. Bob Burnquist Mega Rail:
X-GAMES 16 Winner Bob Burnquist Mega Rail - 2010 Small | Large
"

"I used to skate. Back in the days of Jesse Martinez and Mike McGill. Tony Hawk and Rodney Mullen were rookies then. The tricks nowadays are "technically" harder, but are SO BORING to watch! I used to enjoy watching skating, especially vert. Now it's all about how many spins you throw in. SNOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE! Gimme the "old heads" tricks any day. Kudos to you Bob for pulling off that trick. Too bad it's not visually appealing. Sorry to any new school skaters who this post offends. But until you can finger flip into a street plant or sad plant on an 8 foot quarter pipe, the old schoolers will always reign as kings in my book."

i know that shit is huger than a regular vert ramp and all

but i can't help but think that all that extra "air" would make this easier (and i use that lightly as i know it's a gully manuever) than it would be on a traditional vert ramp. 

i'd be more psyched on seeing him do a 9 on his traditional ramp



but this motherfucker is still leagues above everyone

I have a few friends who skate vert that say an 11 ft vert ramp is harder to skate than a 14 ft vert ramp, simply because you don't get as much time in the air or as much momentum.  But still, this Bob shit is in a league of it's own.

i agree that the megaramp obviously gives him more air, but at the same time the possibility of getting completely jacked up goes up significantly as well.  either way, its gnarly.

"Burnquist, who along with Danny Way have progressed Mega-Ramp skating to daunting new heights, becomes only the fifth skateboarder ever to land a 900."

I don't follow vert skatin at all, but who were the other 3?

Vov, Hawk, Sandro Dias, Alex Perelson, Giorgio Zattoni, Richard..... fuck I forget his last name but he lives in Rhode Island if anybody knows who I'm talking about. He was in a Tony Hawk tour vid from like 10 years ago. Those guys have all done 900's. Danny way has not.

edit: I'm pretty sure Tony's the only guy who's done two different 900's but I'm not 100% sure on that.

I don't know about death but the probability of a SEVERE nutting makes me cringe.  Then again you'd probably clear the rail and rag-doll... hmmm, no that makes me cringe too.

I feel like the flying tomato would be most likely to do this, but I wanna see a mctwist style 900. Basically a double mctwist. That'd be nuts. Also a frontside 900 would be awesome. Has Mike V done a boneless footplant 900?

isn't a mctwist a 540? so a double mctwist would be a 1080.

i believe fs 900 was done by georgio zattoni on 411 issue 60 (the gold issue)... am i way off point with this? I swear to god he did it on bob's backyard ramp (the one that said "DONT PANIC" that was in videos a lot from like 03-07) And im pretty sure he was wearing a green shirt and cargo shorts but again i could be way off base with this i have done a lot of drugs.

^^ Mctwists are grabbed mute but the body goes all off-axis. Colin Mckay does mute 540s and they look like ass.

when did tony hawk grab indy though? i just watched like three youtube videos of him doing a 900 at three different times and they were all mute grab.

I can't find a video of it online, but the one I saw was during an Xgames best trick contest... probably between 05 and 07? I'm not positive on the year. He landed the mute one and then did the indy one in the same session.



has anyone done a double cab?  like no grab?

As in a fakie 720 ollie? Can't say I've seen that.

How tight would it be though if Bastien started skating vert and mixed his street bag of tricks with vert shit. Double cab double flip.

edit: Giorgio didn't do it frontside.
