A long post, but something I wanted to talk about..  Let’s be real here, injuries are a part of the game.  If we’re being honest with ourselves, most of us will sustain a major injury at some point.  Not all will require surgery, but the potential for catastrophe is there.  I’m talking about injuries that …

Because it comes up somewhat often, I felt I’d make a video explaining my perspective on flipped “vert kicks”. For me, a vert kick is meant to be a single axis trick; it’s all spin, and no flip.  Just as I view a backflip with a 1/4 twist as something different than a true backflip, …

There’s been a lot of talk recently about pop btwists..  are they real, are they just a shitty, underinverted full, and does it matter? Yes.  Pop btwists are indeed real, they are indeed shitty underinverted fulls, and it does matter. Sorta. The same goes for cork, and if you wanna get really deep into it, …

Things have finally settled down for me, and I can address the events of the last few weeks.  After NEO, I was home for a day and a half, packing my home, weeding my yard, and planning the final parts of Tricktheory Camp.  On Tuesday, camp began, followed by CTG on the weekend, and moving …

NEO was everything I expected it to be.  It was massive and overwhelming, and the level of talent was absolutely ridiculous.  The Neotricks boys delivered, and they delivered in a big way.  Last year’s event was spectacular, yet my high expectations were exceeded this year.  The Ohio boys raised the bar of professionalism in more …

Pikes Peak Tricking’s first event, Trick Different has finally come and gone.  As all gatherings are, this event was a blast, and one I’ll be sure to make it to every year.  It’s always great to see who shows up to these things, and how much they’ve progressed since the last time I saw them, …

Been awhile since I’ve vomited my thoughts onto the page..  So here goes. I’ve found myself in a number of conversations recently about how to evaluate a tricker’s skill, in one capacity or another.  We don’t have ranks, for the most part, or a code of points that says a level XX must be able …

Trickstrong gathering just wrapped up, and as all gatherings are, it was an amazing experience.  For me, this gathering will be remembered for it’s overwhelming love.  The people I talked to had an outpouring of love, not only for the event itself, and the people present, but more importantly, for tricking as a whole.  This …

Every gathering is different; this is true when you compare different events, as well as the same event, from year to year.  This year, New Heights was no exception.   Last year, I got food poisoning, and spent much of the gathering in my hotel room, sicker than I ever want to be again.  It …

I’ve had this feeling inside of me for awhile now.  A feeling that something new is emerging in tricking.  I think a new form, or genre of tricking is about to fully mature and become mainstream.  As i see it, there are 2 main genres of tricking currently, each with their own variations or sub-genres.  …
