Un-natural Cork

I have been trying to figure out what these are called. Andreas Wiig, Eero Ettala, Marku Koski and many other riders do these so often in their video parts. Essential their backside cork 7's or 9's but their corking off of their heel, would that consider it as a rodeo?

Anyways, heres a perfect clip of Marku Koski sending 2 of these. Switch backside ____ 7 and then Backside ____ 9



at 2:03 is where the two hits are. Just curious on what those are called. Because naturally you would cork over your toes for backside, but he is corking over his heels (opposite edge).

those are both back rodeo style corks but either the first or second one is switch. not sure on what his usual stance is. generally back rodeos are done off the heels like that but it just looks cooler/unnatural the way hes doing it cause hes doing more spinning then flipping.

Yeah, because I know that with rodeos, you tend to go perfectly inverted.

These allow you to end up perfectly parallel with the surface beneath you. The first one was switch, i looked up his stance. Andreas wiig does these all the time (as shown in his MDP film segments).

Its like half rodeo, half cork...Can't explain it.

backside rodeos dont have to be completely inverted like most people think to be considered a rodeo. thats just the standard and easier way of doing it. whenever your front knee is corking up towards your back shoulder and you go off axis a good amount i would consider it a back rodeo.
