 "Yes, I'll take two downside tail whips."
"Would you like it covered in steez or...?"
"Steez on the side please. "
"Alright. and today we are offering a free complimentary sunset with every rad trick."
"Sounds good to me!"
"Total cost will be: nothing.."

There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's the gnarly-card

 Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this a double downside tail whip 360? or is 360 always included in this trick and therefore unmentioned?

 @soprobrofosho you forgot to order bacon...

 Sweet trick (and I am not trying to be a hater...) but I want to see shot 13. In shot 12 his left foot is below the pedal... His nutz hope his right foot found it's true home Smile

 @radrider; it is infact a 360 double down. ian just forgot to mention the 360 part.

 Frames 13-24 cannot be displayed due the extreme horror that was manifested on his shin.......... and his balls which followed on in quick succession.

 boner soup.. and if i may, this does not seem to be a 360 rotation at all. because in a downside whip, isn't a decade, or spin around the bars on the outside in the opposite direction. need to happen anyways??
  • + 1
 I don't see what's so hard to understand. It's a 360 double downside whip, there's nothing else to it.

 Incredibly wild ideas will fill your head when you're all hopped up on Christmas cookies and eggnog. While the rest of the family slowly melts into the couch, your sugar enraged vision will allow you to see one thing, and one thing only--the precipice of death upon which the double downside tailwhip rests. Power up the ramp with unfeeling legs numb from the 'nog. Turn to the left as if to kiss your ass goodbye while kicking your bike to the right. Your global journey has begun, so keep those tree shaped cookies in your gut bag. Try to control your saccrine rage as your body drifts counter clockwise through space. Look down now, and watch your nephew's department store bicycle whistle by in the opposite direction. Try not to notice the single wall rims, the plastic pedals, and missing seat. Instead, trust your boiling, gingerbread guts that your years of gnarly stunts have given you the skill to ride anything. As you and the bike reunite two juxtaposed revolutions later, snag the pedals with those lucky shoes of yours. Don't forget to shoot a smug look at your dumbass cousin Philip as you roll off into the sunset.

 Well you see, a double downside whip is where the bike goes one way and you go the other way. but then you meet up with the bike halfway again so you're like "bike, what are you doing?!" So you push the bike down to get over the frame again, and then at this point you should be meeting your bike yet again, but this time you want to catch them pedals and land rubberside down.
[Reply]

 If you look at frame 12, you can see that his left foot is not going to land on the pedal and that the wheels are already on the ground. Obviously I can't land this trick either, but I would not call this "doing" a double downside tailwhip.
  • + 1
 lol yeahh i saw that... i saw his other pedeal being a little low for his foot to be under it... at least it was a step up....
[Reply]
  • + 3
 I would call it a "coax whip" Coaxial rotors are a pair of helicopter rotors mounted one above the other on concentric shafts, with the same axis of rotation, but that turn in opposite directions (contra-rotation). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sikorsky_X2_in_flight.jpg

 It was written, that in order to cheat the Maya calendar's "...end of the world prediction"
A Double Downside Tailwhip must me executed at the precise moment of sunset.
Phew!....we can all keep riding!
Thanks "Pintas"

 These comments are awful! It should be judged on best genuine comment about a photo, not some bullshit pun that isn't funny or some bullshitting with long words about the 'themes' of the photo! Just be genuine!

 "One last breath before shaking my feet on the pedals, close and open my eyes, I'm gaining speed and look one last time for the jump... I think," F*** this s***! "And I focus on maneuver that I drew in my head... I feel off the ground, the time stopped! I start to do a double downside tailwhip and .... and ... and ... done, come on the floor ... I feel the wheels hit the ground and feet on the pedals! It´s finally done! Breathe and for moments I feel as if I had saved the world! "

 Sequence saturday is just an excuse to overdo your comments...
Cool shots and all but I really think it's stupid that someone has to make a "clever" comment to win a prize.
People are taking time to make stupid f*ckin comments that are actually irrelevant to the picture themselves.
I'm sure the first comment is going to win because he was so god damn clever amirite?
f*ck sequence saturdays.

 yes, not perfect but I continued to walk, I put one foot on the pedal and the other touched, but I need a big jump, this is to small Frown

 I went to the Colonel's and ordered a "Double Down side tailwhip" and the lady at the counter gave me two deep fried chicken breasts with sauce and all the fixing's in between...followed by, whip-cream on the back end!!
Best served during a dinner's sunset.
