not if you ride street but park riders only doing them gets old

yeah...if you do them all the time they are. with that said, tailwhips are really hard tricks so if you can do em you must be pretty good

i think tailwhips are just one of those tricks that everyone tries to learn because there so hard and if they could do them, theyd be so badass, if you do them all the time on little ramps, or off a curb, or flat.. its time to stop them. but if your like my friend and do them up a 3 stair, or down a 15 set, then thats badass and is ok to do, just dont do a tailwhip in every line. it gets old

Not as far as difficulty goes.But yeah it seems like people would rather see a tailwhip,than a 3 sec brakeless nose manual... unfortunately.

Heck no! I've been working on them for like a year and when I finally get em dialed I'm gonna be doing em everywhere!
Its all about what you like to do or how you like to ride. Who cares if anybody else thinks they're overrated.

Bissett goes BRAAAAAAP!

i just started landing them consistant =]

don't think it's over reated as long as you got other tricks to mix in there

|

throw bars all day

(oh and in case you were wondering 24.5")

4/12/2008 1:25 PM

it's all about the location

like a whip down an 8 stair isn't the same as doing one on a halfpipe

24 beers in a case, 24 hours in a day.
coincidence?
I think not.

its not over rated if its chase d or eddie, like scotty cramner double tailwip to tiretap to icepick, now thats over rated

|

4/14/2008 12:48 PM

there are few people that can make a whip look good, other people just whip all day to impress people, that all they know how to do....its nice to see some style thrown in a whip rather than just whippin everything in the park. word.

|

4/14/2008 1:53 PM

i wish i could whip everything i touch, who gives a f@ck if its over rated its a bloody hard trick and if ya got em why not do them anywhere ya can, i know in videos a thousand whips can get rather boring but as a trick on a sesh, whips are radd.

AGREED, if you can land a whip consistantly your pretty awesome, but throwing in other tricks jus makes you better

NOT OVERATED, JUS ADD MORE STUFF TO MIX IT UP!

nose manuals are just as hard as whips but whips are not that over rated if you can throw one into some crazy street spot that you wouldnt think you could

why's it matter? Ok personally if you look sketchy doing them then don't do a video with a bunch of them. I can not whip or barspin or nose manuel, yeah I suck fuck off why don't you. I don't care though. If everyother trick your doing is a whip then yeah it's lame, same with tabletops, backflips, barspins, etc. But if you are just riding your spot or park hell yeah throw a bunch of whips down get use to it so that you can be ready to throw it down somewhere else. Are tailwhips over rated? I don't think so. It's just a trick. Why is it over-rated? Cause every pro can throw one? Does that mean backflips are over-rated? 720's? Just getting air? No. So what it gets thrown all the time. But the majority of the reason it gets thrown all the time, cause it isn't easy (I nearly broke my ankle trying it), people do it cause it's hard, they do it to show off their skills. People want to be good or the best. So doing something challenging helps them get up their. So as long as you aren't doing it ever 4 seconds then now it's not over-rated. And Scotty Cramner isn't over-rated either, he just has programing that makes him the best and allows him to do anything, because he's a cyborg (not a robot) and he is the best. So stop hating people. Just do what feels right and have fun, forget about other people.
