best style out imo
would you rather hear "woo" from the omar salazar pack? i wouldn't. their "yeahs" are genuine, and cool. "yeah" has been the battle cry of skaters for as long as i can remember.

rewatched your mindfield part yesterday, did you push switch before the swbigspin back tail line because of the setup?

Yeah... it was easier to re adjust my balance on that one....

Actually... I might have been pushing reverse mongo at first... but that fucking trick took so long to do.... maybe my mongo leg was just too tired... lol.

lmfao!  That's just too funny.  That line is the #1 thing that stood out in that video for me.  sw big spin bs tail is just bananas.

Also... fakie flips look shittier after a switch push.

i always wanted to have a solid switch push and never felt like i had it, but it's funny- that exact fakie flip thought is one of the only things that made me feel ok about my switch mongo situation. love me a fakie flip.

I've been working on it little by little and am finally showing some improvement. I don't mind the mongo look at all with switch (I actually think Koston makes it look rad). I'd just like to be able to do both.

Especially, I've noticed that when doing a switch backside ledge line, if I'm close to the ledge, there's no room to push mongo - a good switch push would really come in handy there.

[/quote]hands down the best thing in the entire dvd was in the extras when you took out a whole family trying that trick.

those bs noseblunts were great, i had to watch it twice. i was hoping for at least one mid-ledge bs noseblunt though.

now that you mention it, it does look super planned. cause you could have jumped off to the side and avoided them, but instead you just stuck out your arm and pulled them to the ground. haha

kalis, you push regular switch in the switch heel noseslide line in the dc video. and your right, it looks kinda awkward.  your style comes out way more pushing switch mongo

and yeah, kenny's back noseblunts are magic!

I actually did hit another skater in the face with my shoe once at a demo doing a shoes fly off kickflip but he was cool with it.

This thread might be dead, but I'll reply anyway: I don't mind a switch mongo push. A lot of guys make it look good like Carroll, Leo Valls and Kalis. Back in the 90's pushing switch mongo was the norm - I think we was just called it pushing fakie, no such thing as switch mongo back then. When did people start saying switch mongo anyway? I started pushing switch regular after seeing Ricky Oyola's part in Eastern Exposure - around 96 or 97, I think. He looked really good doing it, so I wanted to give it a try - and I've stuck with it since then. Yeah, but it always felt a little strange doing fakie tricks after pushing switch. Doing switch tricks felt more natural after a switch regular push than a switch mongo one. Anyways, doesn't really matter how you push ( as long as you're not pushing regular mongo!), if you got a good push you got a good push. Period!
