    Which one was it?
    One that was landed the most times on stage? Used in the most qualifying runs?
    Which one was attempted most, but landed least?
    Which was your favourite to watch players try?

    Lets hear it!

    Watching Nobu go for and hit that 10juggle to Spike a couple times was masterful..!

    I think 10 jug was probably most attempted.
    I saw lots of people hitting single or double whirl in their first few tricks.
    123 tapback house was super popular as well.
    My favorites to watch were the under leg bird and tapback insta inw house flip (idk what the actual names for those tricks would be lol)

    The 3 tap jug 2 tap jug tap in was popular as well.

    For being a spammy-style trick, I really like that one. Good concept, very nice finish to it as well.

    I was just amazed at all that was accomplished at the event. Such talent and under such pressure too. I can’t even land big cup when people are watching and waiting to see me do something lol. I also found it cool when I knew what something was ha ha. I’m curious about the strategies and such that each player has and their routines/rituals seemed interesting too. Each player had their own thing going on which is cool.

    Bonz nod off combo seemed to appear in a lot of the top runs. Also the bird flamingo trick too.
    Might have to try and grind these two. Might have them down in time for 2020:oops:

    The bird underleg was a killer for most and the knee bounce stilt . Pros made them look so clean . Practice of tricks, consistency and devosion hold the keys to KWC

    Oh wow! Thats kinda funny, but I guess if you practice it enough, that'll happen.

    Reminds me of when I learned to do at tricks called fish n' chips on my bike, I had this HUGE bruise on my arm the next day, and I didn't know what it was from at first. As it turns out, spending an hour bracing your arm against your bike seat will do some damage, slowly but surely :eek:

    back on topic though, i think around stalls and the bonz trick was the most popular for sure. such a mellow level 11

    I noticed that rui's strategy was very straightforward... He just decided to focus on one particular type of trick--the tap juggle late flip tricks-- and it obviously worked very well.
