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 …

The idea is simple:  look at tricks not by their takeoffs and landings, per se, but by their rotation and flip.  What does that mean exactly?  It means that rather than viewing a cheat-9, swing-9, and pop-9 as 3 distinct tricks, view them as the same trick, a “9”, from a different takeoff or transition.  …

It’s interesting going …

Pardon my lengthy intro. To get caught up: http://www.tricktheory.com/my-tricking-sketchbook/ September is done, and it’s time for another progress report. This project has been interesting for me.  While I try not to trick for the camera, I am certainly aware of its presence.  I try to be conscious of my current goals for this project, for …

Thank you to Towels for the super fast edits for this gathering, and always being good about releasing the footage you take.   Sun City Gathering went down this weekend, and it was nothing short of amazing.  This was a smaller event, but that actually enhanced the experience in every way.  The event had a …

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.  …

A realization.. I’ve hinted at it a number of times, in different places:  at some point, I believe we entered the next major generation of tricking.  The greatest sign, in my mind, is the increasing number of old skool trickers and veterans disowning or downplaying their ‘tricker’ titles.  Guys who no longer identify themselves as …
