The question was asked in the forums, and there were many nominations made. But, now it's time to figure out who threw down the craziest trick in 2014 so far.

Nominations:

Jossi Wells - Switch Triple 1440

Jossi landed his first triple at X-Games Big Air, and in true Jossi Wells fashion, did it with incredible style.

Jesper Tjäder - Double Backflip Death Gap

Jesper has been on a tear lately, but when he sent this double backflip over the massive transfer at Nine Knights, jaws dropped.

Henrik Harlaut - Nose Butter Triple 1620

Henrik's nose butter triple was undoubtedly one of the greatest tricks of 2013, and it became even more legendary when the footage dropped of Tanner Hall telling Henny to "fucking send it, son." Now in 2014 Henrik is back in the running for best trick, amazingly with the same maneuver as last year after he sent it to the gucci plateau.

Vincent Gagnier - Double Bio 1260 Screamin' Seamen Double Grab

The name of Vinni Cash's trick is almost as confusing as the trick itself, either way it's damn impressive.

Chris Laker - Double Flat 1260

It was claimed as the sickest double ever, now it's up against some heavy hitters for trick of the year.

Luca Schuler - Triple Cork 1080

I'm pretty sure everyone thought it was going to be Alex Beaulieu-Marchand to first land the triple cork 10, but Lucas beat him to it at Frost Big Air.

Alex Beaulieu-Marchand - Switch 900 Nose Bonk

Speaking of ABM, he's still in the running with this wacky trick he landed at the Olympics. Sure some think it was an accident, but accident or not he still put it to his feet and therefore it makes the cut.

Vincent Gagnier - 1170 Disaster

Vinni is the first on the get on the list twice when he stomped the first ever 1170 disaster at VARS "just for fun"

(trick at 5:14)

Jesper Tjäder - Disaster 630 AND Disaster Underflip

Jesper joins Vinni to repeat on the list, but one ups him by throwing down two nominations in one urban segment.

(630 at 4:14, Underflip at 4:47)

Joss Christensen - Switch Triple Rodeo 12

It was so good that it helped him win the first ever Olympic gold medal in Slopestyle, how could it not be on the list.

(trick at :33)

Roy Kittler - Cork 270 Transfer

Roy's cork 270 at Nine Knights was some of the first footage released from the event, and it was worthy.

Honorable Mentions

Scott Nelson - Blindside 360 Switch-Up Continuing 270-out

Scott (user fuzzball) has been putting out edits this consisting of 5 tricks on a single feature at Keystone, his 3-swap on the Key FDF stands out.

Jerry Öijer & Fabian Omne - "The Awesome Brofist"

Jossi Wells - Transfer 180 Nose Tap

Jossi released a preview shot of an Atomic edit on his instagram. It was him launching off a jump an catching the end of a rail on another pile. Somehow, this shot didn't even make it in the edit.

Adam Delorme - Straight Air

Delorme is one of the few people that could get on a "Best Trick" list with a straight air...but what a straight air it is.

Khai Krepela - S-rail to DFD Illusive

Just making it to the end of this rail is impressive, to do such a technical trick on it, now that's incredible.
