Are the two back-fins somehow different from each other, or am i blind? why?
to me this really just looks like a shaka in front of the wave/ whitewater…
Hi Al and Valerio!
We had this discussion already and this is what Victor Fernandez says about his move: “I always call this move a backside 360º cause is on a wave. I call a shaka the same move but not on a wave. Shaka is a freestyle move and you don´t hit the wave to make it in. In this video from me is a backside air 360º on the wave.Sometimes I can do them also without the air and is still a backside 360º.”
So, we will call it Backside 360° in the future as well.
Well, yeah ok. Never really agreed with that but i see the point. But this particular one to me is just a
plain shaka. He’s taking off from the FLATS, in front of the wave, not the lip.
I too think the real backside wave 360° is NOT jumped, just slid onto the lip, from the lip.
I understand a shaka off the lip being called bswave trey, but this is just a shaka. He’s barely even landing on the whitewater after rotating.
Not hatin or anything, we all know he’s a sick sailor, but this move in general to me, in onshore conditions especially, is just a regular shaka on a wave.
No worries though!
We see your point as well, but we will stay with Backside Wave 360°. 😉
