 yeah pretty sure a tsunami is standing on the bars, with your feet hooked under em Helmet

but maaad extension
  • + 12
 well it really is a combination of both or a not very good Tsunami(at least in this point of the trick that we see) a Kod (kiss of death) your helmet is supposed to get really close to the front tire and even touch i think, a Tsunami his Knees should be bent and his back arched making his body into the shape of a wave. i know from many days of playing mx unleashed and watching Xgames and freestyle.

either way im not complaining or saying it sucks cause it really is amazing, theres no saying that he didnt get into better position but i think it is amazing that he got that far and survived im guessing, theres very little weight from the bike (compared to an mx) to get your body back where it needs to be

 How appropriate for today's pod, a kona bike lol
  • - 1
 a kiss of death is when you go to kiss the front fender, a tsunami is when you basically do a handstand on the bars and if you can get the bike straight
  • + 3
 I'm pretty sure if he tried to extend anymore he'd either dislocate or break something! XD

 Kona riders will take any opportunity they can get to check the head tube for cracks!!

 Tsunami, KoD, Ruler...all variations of the original Kiss of Death done by Mike Jones. Since I've been doing FMX I figured out that most people call all 3 of those tricks just KoDs just to make life easier. Razz
