We’ve seen a few weird things this year. No, we’re not talking about Miley twerking *yawn* or the snow that hit the UK in April. We’re talking about the off-the-wall, weird, wonderful and downright wacky tricks that riders have been dropping in edits across the year. Take the creative genius of Scott Stevens, for example, blowing minds with his ability to hit anything. Or Jaeger Bailey sliding across a butterbox scorpion-style (above). Even just Bode throwing one of his mental one-footers off another rooftop.

Most of these creative manifestations would be impossible to imitate. I mean, how many times have you been watching an edit this year and thought, “how the hell did he DO that?!”.

We may not be able to stomp them ourselves, but damn they make entertaining viewing. Which is why we’ve rounded up the weirdest and wackiest tricks to come out of 2013. One’s that blew minds, shattered illusions and caused jaws to drop to the floor.

It’s by no means a final list but these are a few of our favourites… Enjoy!
