Clint McMahon Decade or Downside 360whip? 26

Clint calls it a downside 360 tailwhip but after watching the video I call it more of a decade, what do you think?

    definitely a downside 3whip. look at any bmx'er do them. decades are a lot different visually. stupid mountain bikers not knowing their tricks

    Looks like a decade with 1/4 or a tailwhip as the bike only whipped about 90 degrees.

    They're kinda the same thing. But I'm gonna go with three whip because he did kick into the spin. In a decade you generate the body spin by popping off the pedals and in more of a vertical plane.

    Actually that's not true at all. That kicking motion is pretty common in how a lot of people do decades in BMX and in MTBing...

    Mostly a decade, but the bike throws a nice whip.

    Hahaha, come on. In this case it's a decade, because even though he kicked his bike, he didn't make it a complete rotation which is what would make it a tail whip. A true downside 360 tail whip would be insanity. He just got confused, that's all.

    What do you mean a 360 Downside whip would be insane? People do 360 double downside whips.
    In this case thats a steezy decade.

    How hard is it to understand that a 360 downside whip is insane? Am I missing something or does a trick become unimpressive if someone can do a harder variation of it?

    He kicked but bike didn't go around. Decade.

    Def a decade the bike only goes 90 degrees at most

    Yeah decade

  • LOC

    6/11/2012 7:26 PM

    definitely a downside 3whip because he kicked it then spun. decade is when you spin only with your bars.
