Eero Ettala has been on it this season. His ‘Cooking With Gas’ web series with Hekki Sorsa has been hugely entertaining and in addition to the main episodes, we’ve also been treated to some banging b-roll footage and a full slams section. In between all of this Eero has still managed to find time to keep his own website updated and has a pretty comprehensive trick tip section on there. Here’s the most recent one that shows you how to go about learning that most stylish of tricks, the backside rodeo.
Unlike many of the trick tips you watch these days where the advice usually consists of “setup for trick, pop, turn your shoulders, land and ride away smooth…”, this one contains some genuinely good pointers including the line you should approach with, the way you should pop off the lip and the best way to rotate and land. Take note fellow pro riders!
