So.
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!
TYLER PLANE FALLS ON HEAD SNOWBOARDING - YouTube

Snowboard rainbow crash - YouTube

Snowboarding Backflip Fail (air bag) - Holly Bendall - YouTube

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.

I've always known it as the lawn chair.

Seeing those in slow motion is nuts and it hurts just thinking about it.

It already has a name at my resort. It's called Peter. Peter was crucified on the cross upside down. Fits perfect. Seen it too many times.

This guy's got the form for sure... even spun his arms for extra style points.

I've heard it called the lawn chair as well, I think because on landing you fold up like a lawn chair.

Personally, I think the aerial maneuver should be called "inversion boots" because that's what it reminds me of: :laugh:
