Basically, are there any riders that can do one thing that really makes them stand out with how they do it. Morgan Wades super whips would be a good example.

But for me, Matt Miller and his ridiculous half/full cabs. I swear no one does them as high or stylish

Tom white and his crashing. I always liked how he could do some crazy grinds but would also eat so much shit. Made me feel like since i eat shit maybe i could do crazy grinds too.

I think nyquist used to do cannonball double barspins back in dew tour days , he called them powerballs if I remember right , he also shot an add doing a nothing backflip once that trick would be insane to see a comeback

Nastys 360 motowhips euro table things look so sick

Dawid godziek doing that Nicoli Rogatkin twister in dirt contests is pretty exclusive to him over regular sized dirt jumps right now

Pat Casey’s fakie cashroll is something I don’t see anyone doing for a long time

Kenneth Tencio pretty much owns backflip drop ins

Garret Reynolds - Barspin Anything.
Dennis Enarson - Switch whip - Crazy legs
Drew B - Ice pick anything
Larry Edgar - Go 5 ft higher than anyone on a quarter
Kevin Peraza - Having more fun than anyone while throwing bangers.

Good memory on Nyquist.

As far as backflip drop-ins, those will always be owned by Mirra in my mind! (Though how Kenneth goes into them straight-rather than Mirra's sideways type flip-is unique, and very impressive)

Man these take me back.

I would add John Heaton's flip to pegs on a sub-box.

Leigh Ramsdell's flip to smith grind on a hip.

Osato's whip manual whip back in like 04. Or whip to 540 tire tap.

Tobias Wicke with pretty much all he did

Marcus Wilke being a pegless guy for a while and KILLING it.

Mirra's 360 no hander flip

Big Daddy's X-Factor

Big Boy's flairs

Adam Strieby's flipwhip and decade seatgrab

Mat Hoffman all of his riding, but the no handed 900 was nuts. Also his like 50 foot airs

Mike Spinner 1080 and quad whips

Tate Roskelly's riding in general with all the front wheel falls off, slide around crazy stuff

Erik Elstran's riding and pedal stall spinner things, handlebar grinds

Trey Jones with his front wheel stuff

Can't forget Levan's toothpicks on handrails. Boned out to the side super far.

Josh Harrington and over grinds, also anything stretched because he's super tall.

Brian Vowell 360 to hang 5 over a spine, hang 5s out of stuff like 15 years before everyone else did hang 5s everywhere.

Colin Winkelmann (RIP) with his burliness, but then he would fire out something super tech too.

Jay Miron with 540 whips, 540 Double whips, Whip to super stretched one foot catch, super fast nose wheelies on vert or across whole parks

Tom Haugen with the 360 whip to xup like 10 years before anyone else did anything else in a 360 whip.

TJ Lavin with superman Seat grabs

Big Daddy and anything about marinating in the kitchen (basically his goofy comments on stuff all the time)

Aitken using dirt takeoffs as landings in contests when transferring across the whole course. Also pretty much all of his riding.

DMC for his tech skills, but then fires off a 900 randomly. Also his abubacas on 8+ foot sub box/walls out of 6+ foot quarters.

Spencer Foresman with his hilarious commentary on his own videos "Welcome to this (insert random stupid thing) channel" etc.

I’m a big fan of riders who have that je nais se quois throughout their riding. Aitken is a really good example, Edwin, Hawk, Eddie C, Taj, Joe, Corey Walsh, Kevin Kalkoff, Dave Mirra, Dak, Levan, Burns, Yeagle, Byrnes... guys who make me feel something when I see them ride.

I’m gonna have to break out the props box set this afternoon I think.
