First, our good pal Reubyn Ash from Bude in Cornwall, pulled off this 'rodeo flip' (aka 'rodeo clown') in Sri Lanka this summer. The move appears in Billabong's much-hyped new movie 'Still Filthy'. which showcases the ridiculous standards that modern surfing has reached. Reubyn, by the way, just won the British Champs, so his trajectory is clearly ... up.
Here's a second version of the same thing from South Africa's Jordy Smith. You'll note that even his sponsored super-grommet pals are in awe of this move, and the 'old' team coach fella can only shake his head and call it 'a different sport altogether'. We say he's just not trying hard enough.
