Muska Flips
« on: March 18, 2023, 11:17:36 AM »
Was just thinking today, there are 3 moments in skate video history that basically shut down people from doing Muska Flips (respectably). IT just seemed like they were illegal after that. never saw them in video parts after that unless they were done by Chad himself for the most part.

Reynolds fs flip in the end:

Penny Sw Fs Flip Carlsbad:

Herman Hardflip this is skateboarding:

I like how some people still do them like Kyle Wilson and Carl Aikens
What were some of your favorite Muska flips of all time?

I don't have a favorite but I think muska flips def have certain applications where it makes more sense than a Reynolds fs flip. As long as the muska flips stays close to the feet. They look bad when the skater gets too far above them.

Thread reminded me of Penny dropping in straight to frontside flip in sorry during the arto fever dream
 Timestamp is 50 seconds.

You may be on to something. Outside of the occasional bank/transition frontside flip the muska flip disappeared.

Best ones were when Muska stanky legged em. Like why not. There was an Osiris ad around 2002 with Kasper switch Muska flipping something like a 15 that looked absolutely ridiculous. Wish I could find it.


Recognize the skills.

I love Muska flips of all kinds especially the lesser done backside heel flip versions. Hate that I went with the trend and didn't do them for about 14 years. I really think they should just be classed as a different trick to frontside flips etc. It's not the same technique at all and can even be harder eg try doing one over something long.

Fun fact Reynolds even used to do them 0:40

Also love the didit flip style. Sativa is all time top 3 but here's one most people haven't seen 0:49
https://youtu.be/dWXnnQoU2Zw

And a pop n swap style at 3:39, a backside heel variation 4:47 and a wrap around thru the legs hardflip at 5:46

How could I forget this part so many thruout and many in that grey area between proper flick and Muska. Also "the penny" 3:05

The last time I saw someone do Muska flip, it was in the Ace Trucks "Largo" video. 
5:10 to 5:13, he did it switch.

Kyle Wilson got them both stances. Here's a switch example.
