the aerialists dont actually spin off the jump from what understand. Aerialist just throw a STRAIGHT backflip and once they start flipping they move their arms in order to INDUCE a spin because of the conservation of angular momentum. Same as when you have a gyroscope and try to turn it one way and it moves another way for some reason. They are backfliping so fast that it has alot of angular momentum so moving their arms in certain ways can get them to spin in a way. They can also do the same thing to stop themselves from spinning. That is why aerialists always seem to end their trick without spin.
Just watch the first jump in this video. He starts with only backflip, and then moves his arms to get some fake spin going.
So anyways I think dumont is nasty as anything, but his front flip to misty 7 is just a front flip aerial. He does a straight front flip and then starts himself spinning with his arms. Its cheap spin though, not real.
its at 125 in this video
So anyways i think Deschenaux was right about simons front flip misty, it really is an aerials trick which is kind of gay. Kangeroo flips are def not related to aerials i dont think.
do people do switch flat spins and switch rodeos and stuff? cause i was just thinking of ways skiing could progress and i realized i have never seen a switch flat or rodeo 5. so if people ahvent done those someone should!
I'm with slag. Aerial guys have hella talent and skill, incredible form, and balls as big as my head, but no style. If you wanna throw quad backflip 7's, be my guest, but your not gonna be able to cross your skis up and steeze it out.
thats such a good point about simons flip i've never thought about it that way. my question now is can he throw it and do a grab without using his arms for gyroscopic rotation? when he figures that out and puts a sick grab in it should look sweet. personally i think he should skip the front flip and throw it more like a flattened flatspin to sideways misty 7 with some high mute grab.
other than that simon is the man. (sw 3 = steez)
and so is jossi and colby in that video.
i think its just a front flip version of an aerial. Aerialists dont do front flips, but simons trick doesnt start to spin until he has done full front flip, and aerialists usually dont start spinning until they have done at least one full backflip
