    A switch flip would be miles harder than a backside flip over that.

    A backside flip is a pretty solid travelling trick. Check out this great Craig Smedley number posted on the Sidewalk Instagram:

    Yeah backside flip is such a go to road gap trick because of that reason you can fling it, wonder how many First Light road gap backside flip photos there have been over the years?

    Obviously Heath's backside and frontside flips are still absolutely fucked but sw flip is a whole other ball park

    Interested to see how he got the speed, being towed in switch seems terrifying!

    Torgy's nollie is better than both of them.

    Totally with krill here, just the fact you can see where you're going makes me think it's easier. Also I think I've landed about 2 bs flips in my whole life compared to a few switch flips each time I skate - which influences it a bit.

    Yeah maybe bs flip is easier to clear the distance but because of the sheer size of that thing committing to a sw flip is easier

    Yeah, I find switch flips or nollie flips easier to do than backside flips too. The speed on that one must have been pant shittingly scary though.

    backside flip is way easier as long as you know you can jump it while turning 90 to face where you left, all you have to do is catch that flick and the rest is automatic. Switch flip is a trick you can easily do one of those non pop to horizontal feet first flail straight to your back.
    Nollie heel is utterly ridiculous though.

    Nobody nollie heeled that gap. Davis Torgerson nollied it though, which was rather good.

    Oh, yeah, I misread and mistyped. I did mean just nollie though. Nollie is harder to stick than nollie heel I reckon anyway.

    To commit yeah, I reckon. A nollie heel might take longer because of the board deciding what it wants to do etc but to convince yourself to stick it I reckon a straight nollie is harder on the brain.

    i'd guess with that amount of time in the air you'd be able to judge pretty easily whether you're going to clear it or not.

    This is what would freak me out, skitching a car at that speed in switch.
