does anybody know why are some tricks named they way they are. ralley, blind judge, tantrum, etc, etc?
what is the story, if any, behind those names?

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.)
