Setting It Down
Timing a double-up is just one part of the equation. Putting the landing gear down to stomp your tricks is the other part. Fortunately a well-timed, solid takeoff leads to finding the cushiony soft ideal landing spot. With the extra hang time patience is key so as to not overrotate your tricks. Here Rusty is doing a heelside indy roll to blind with time to really spot his landing while he is still at the peak. From here, he will initiate the backside 180 after waiting longer than he would if he had just gone off the wake.
Rusty says, “Landing right on the downside of the second wake is the best feeling. There is almost no impact. Coming up short and casing the second wake or overshooting and landing in the trough are when it can hurt. The more double-ups you hit, the more you will feel it out.”
