I’ll start. I was watching Dick Rizzo’s Vans Half Cab part and when he did a long ride-on backside 5-0 (2:43 below) I was expecting him to frontside body varial out of it. He clearly doesn’t, and it got me wondering where did I see a similarly-filmed backside 5-0 body varial out? I could have sworn I saw this somewhere.

For the long fakie backside nosegrind thread must have found nearly every other similar trick over it

I remember seeming somebody (black dude goofy foot) Ollie from the middle of the bleachers/ledges over the rail at the amphitheater or whatever section of VAPA/Ramon Cortines. I saw it on Instagram a while ago but no clue who it was. That distance, height, and drop is huge.

I'd love to see footage of a trick called a "potato gun".
it's some kind of air (maybe fakie ollie) body varial thing where you end up grabbing the tail and slapping the nose on the coping on the way back in. A long time ago I swear the Thrasher website had a gif sequence of someone doing one. Searching gets me no where.

Honestly we could have a whole thread dedicated to finding clips of obscure vert tricks. It's pretty fascinating how vert trick names generally have an opposite trajectory that street. Like some teenager in 1980-whatever was like "yeah let's call that one a 'feline fumble'" and vert skaters decided to run with it for 40 years.

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down

That sounds like something Daniel Vargas would do
