1. I wish people would stop calling it a double flat spin. It's a nasty double flair that takes skiing back the the Schraab days. I'm glad it's being done--don't get me wrong. I like the direction Olenick is going. But it's not a double flatspin.
2. Mike Douglas on ESPN was wrong that Olenick is the only skier or snowboarder doing a "double flatspin." Mike Michalchuk started with a double back 180s in the pipe, and then turned them into double flatspins (double "Michalchuk's"). he did them off hips too (imagine someone on skis doing TWO true flatspins off a hip).
Mike Michalchuk was soo sick he even did double rodeo 9s a few times, double flat spin would be preety dope over a hip jump dam ..

and the two people that run this great USA are BUSH and DICK.'
im with you man, its no double flatspin, just like how mike was calling the kangaroo filp a double rodeo and then jon did a single flat 3 and he called it a lincoln loop

i disagree. names for double flips/spins are inconclusive. A double flat 7 and a double flat 9, for example, are both called kangaroo flips. Why?! And a double flat 9 in the pipe is a whiskey flip? If it's a double flat 9, call it a double flat 9. (But yes, i do agree that Pete's trick was not a flatspin.) And heaven forbid we bring back the dinner roll.
i think theres way to many names for tricks why cant we just call them flips? or off axis stuff corked ? or anything else a spin
get over it
