fakie trick naming conundrum
« on: December 30, 2014, 04:50:34 PM »
the trick daryl does at 3:21 is usually referred to as a fakie hurricane
using the trick naming format for fakie nosegrind or fakie 5-0, the trick should be called a fakie frontside feeble.

here's where things get confusing:
if frontside and backside are reversed for fakie tricks like normal, then the trick would be called a fakie backside feeble, because when you do a half cab boardslide, you are technically half-cabbing into a backside boardslide.
however, if daryl would have done a fakie 5-0 on this same rail, we would definitely refer to it as a fakie frontside 5-0.

so i guess the question is, why is a half cab boardslide a backside trick, when a fakie 5-0 approaching from the same side would be considered frontside?

because the boardslide takes precedence but in all other cases, defer to fs/bs. it's like i before e.
