That's indeed a cool Flamenco interpretation of the jibe. Busting the myth that you can't teach old dogs new tricks. They invent them!

Here's Stéphane Goffinet doing something quite similar, but perched on a hydrofoil. Check around 3:30 and other places.

It means a lot more since I pull so many different tricks and transitions!
Already thought how I can do something like this on a TT...since I like to get inspired by new tricks from others.
I think it is only possible with not getting back into the straps but stand on the board. But I do all tricks being back into the straps, anything else is cheating for me ;-)
Different for strapless tricks of course.

But keeping thinking of it I think it is doable...finally a new idea for lighter wind...since I already did all those...

Will post if I nailed it one day...back into straps ;-)
