All those tricks are derived from wakeboarding first hand

Back in the day if you landed a new trick/something never landed before you got to name it.
but the kicker was that the trick had to be landed in competition for it to be named

hence the huge array of names from Blind- judge to a Pete Rose to Discombobulator ( cant wait for someone how to figure out how to do that trick behind a kite.)
