I used to do wrapped tricks back when I was riding in Boys and Junior Men's. I did a wrapped Moby Dick for a while and wrapped KGBs, but I got away from them because I felt there wasn't a trick I could do better wrapped. After a while, I kind of forgot how fun it was to wrap up. But I rode with Randall Harris a bunch last summer and got really inspired by the wrapped tricks he does. Wrapping opens up a lot of possibilities. You can grab with a different hand than you're used to, for example, and grab longer, which is the goal of any move we throw. This off-season, I messed around with some wrap stuff, trying to get creative and come up with new things. The wrapped nose grab backside 540 is one move I came up with. It doesn't look or feel like any other move I do, and I plan on throwing it a lot this year. The 540 might be out of your reach right now, but wrap tricks aren't. After all, if you can jump the wake, you can do a wrapped backside 180. Follow these tips to land that trick, and use it as a starting point for a fun, creative summer.
