Lets talk names!
I agree that naming my double 10 a DJ flip was not the best idea as its just a double 10 and done many times before. But when I first put it to my feet on the steep water ramps it was a completely different rotation, a bio/cork 7 to real rodeo 5, then it turned into a cork 7 to cork 5 and was just a different looking dub 10 and 12. At the time I thought it was something new, but the more I did it the more it just turned into a dub 10 with a slightly different rotation. My bad!
The Tornado, when I landed it and first saw the video I thought it was very far from anything I had seen, sure there has been switch 12s with doubles corks/flips in done before, but to me they looked pretty far from what I did. My first thought when I saw the trick was that it look completely crazy, something that was just spinning out of control, hence the Tornado.
The way I think of it is to set a switch 630 that is as corked as possible (if it turnes into a flip it creates problems in the second flip) and then make sure to keep spinning into the second cork and do another switch cork 630.
Some people like calling tricks switch dub 12s, some like different names, I like them weird but find it very interesting to see what a discussion ”the tornado” name has stirred up on forums when names like below are everyday words in our sport…
