Lightbulb Name This Stylish Slam.

It's the off season, and I leave for Colorado in 2 weeks. All I do is dream of the days when ill be surfing on happiness again. So what do I do? What everyone else does, watch a pathetic amount of snowboarding vids on youtube.

I have noticed a trend. I've seen it plenty in the park, but its all over youtube. A super stylish slam that deserves a proper title, just like the "Scorpion" or "yard sale" (if you don't know what these are google it). Undoubtedly you (just like me) have at some point found yourself with your snowboard flat with the clouds, staring at the sky, and ass pointing towards the certain doom below you. Well, I say its time to indoctrinate this stylish super slam into the books.

Below I have pictures and a couple vids of the carnage I speak of. If you have one yourself, show it. Just make sure they have the "form" (Arms pointed down are crucial... cause its hilarious.)

I've never heard of a term for this, so I say, let the people decide. I think it deserves a good title... one that I can't think of. Lets do this.
What should it be called?

^Might need to skip to 1:00 if you're ADD like me.

^that looks serious.
^Perfect Form!

And last but not least... here is me. I dont think I got the arms and ass right but ill keep practicing.

*Disclaimer* The dude I hit was my homie Alex... I was trying to tap him on the back with the GoPro... I'm not proud, but it's sorta funny.
