When I think of England, air reverses are about the last thing that come to mind. I am instead reminded of a line from a film I once saw.
“Yes, London. You know: fish, chips, cup ‘o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins… LONDON.” (- Snatch, 2000)
Reubyn Ash has just sorta changed my mind about the place. Apparently he’s from a place called Bude, on the South West Coast of Great Britain, which actually gets fun surf from time to time, and the kid freakin rips. Here’s a clip of his quest to land a new variation of flip. It’s basically a frontside alley-oop rodeo flip. Taj and Josh Kerr have been pulling the first part of this trick quite regularly, it rather resembles an inverted method grab alley-oop. What Reubyen does here is keep rotating into another 180 degrees, landing him backwards and reversing out. At the end of the clip he lands* one, but it’s not nearly as impressive as the 5 or so that he gets REALLY really close to making. Cant wait to see more from this kid. He should make sure he’s within the Kustom Airstrike dates eh?
*pretty much landed, but at one point it looks like he was sitting down on his board. i’d give it to him.
