The Cartwheel Challenge!

Post by maxandtheletter7 » Thu Jul 01, 2010 5:40 pm

How many ends can you get? - A challenge of freestyle skills and stanima

Post up a video of you cartwheeling and try to get as many ends as possible, the winner will be rewarded with a warm fuzzy feeling knowing they can do the most ends out of all the ukriversguidebook members!

Pringle and Dicky were having a cartwheel-off earlier this year at HPP. Dicky is the cartwheeling king, racking up over 60 ends in one go!

I'm pretty sure my record would be pretty measly in comparison, but I've never counted! So is your challenge for flatwater or in a hole?

Even quite a few years back I remember watching Dicky cartwheeling in the Plughole back when the scoring benefited this. He just sat there cranking them left and right like a machine.

Yes sorry I meant flatwater, and all these numbers mean nothing without proof ;)
