Thanks MM for the suggestions. Thanks Joe for the response to 'what is a wally?'.
Ok, so a wally, if I understand correctly, is typically a single jump, with back inside edge take off, and back outside edge landing on the same foot as take off. First question: what does the free leg do? Second: you mentioned this is rythmic due to the in air change of emphasis of the body to obtain proper edge, I think I can 'see that' in my head, but the question is are there other rythmic jumps too so I could compare? Third: A triple wally would then really be a triple sal with opposite exit edge? or not??? Fourth: why don't people do this, meaning what is the history of this jump if you know about that (you mentioned, Joe, something about people don't do wally's anymore, so when did they?) Fifth: you mentioned that you don't like the wally with toe assist....YIKES ...can you explain that, if you don't mind.
Ok, now I found this site: http://www.skatejournal.com/jump.html#rotjumps...which explains the jumps, so I won't bombard you with more questions about the way other jumps are executed....so even with the wally questions, I guess I'm most curious about why and when it was used, and why it isn't a common triple now as well as the 'rythmic' comparison. Thanks.
