I fell down the rabbit whole of watching old ski videos last night and I came upon this compilation of seth morrison clips:
https://www.newschoolers.com/videos/watch/990899/Seth-Morrison-compilationThere was a few tricks in here that I have never seen before, and I am not sure it they are just weird, old rotations of tricks, or tricks that people stopped doing. The main ones I was confused by were:
1:40- seems like a lincoln but just off axis
1:52 - I have no idea, weird cork 7 rotation maybe?
2:22 - it could be just the way hes tucking, but this one also looks strange, could just be a cork 3
Watching this made me start to think. When it comes to corks, rodeos, mistys, etc. it seems like everyone currently is just striving to have the most stereotypical version of every trick on lock. I feel like every other video I watch has at least 1 cork 7 blunt, or a flatspin with a weak japan. And sure, each of those tricks does look sick, but I feel like there is a lot of room to innovate when it comes to how we all vary in the way we naturally rotate doing tricks in the air.
Bottom line, drop some clips with some wack, confusing rotations to get some inspiration going.
