The double Backroll with a loop is a great trick to learn and feels great. I've been doing the trick for a couple of years now and my two favorite variations are going into the double rotation fast and low (feels like a corkscrew) I like the name "the blender" never heard that.......and the other more of a double backroll transition. Both variations give a good pull with the loop to straighten you after the second rotation. Definitely one of my favorites.

Yeah, sweet trick!

It even works with my 18...I really glide just above the water.
Grabbing the board makes it perfect stylish!

And once you have the feeling for it, just do it as one foot and then as boardoff.

There's no inversion in those double backrolls. Start a non-inverted backroll thread if you want to discuss normal backrolls. :lol:

This trick is similar the Bas Koole transition so that's a good starting point but the first flip goes upwind and the second is downwind


Did you not "study up" like I said?

A "blender" is a wrapped Heelside Backroll - Invented by Eric Perez

and when you state "upwind and downwind flips" I am taking that as a frontside or backside rotation correct? so with your first flip I'm guessing its a backside rotation then. Are you saying that the second rotation switched to a frontside rotation which would correctly called a revert or rewind.

all in all do it powered, do it during a comp, but most importantly this is the internets pics or it didn't happen

Get a camera and film that shit!!! then you can claim it bro :nono:

Toby I know you are a strictly hooked amigo, but what do you think will bring the best progression and legitimacy to our sport

Also who is claiming the names to these hooked in dangle tricks? I know Shawn did his name my trick vids but I have never heard a dude on my beach come up to me and talk about how he just learnt how to do a 3x3 I'd say he's been spending to much time at In-&-Out Burger. Animal style that.

Ruben has never claimed the S-Loop, so it's still up for grabs i guess. Talked to him in the hood about it, I do know the clip your talking about and that is more of a figure 8, so I'm going to call that one the infinity loop and I can do it, i just have to film it one of these days :P :worry:
