Talk about a trick that is tough to do...  This one takes the cake for one of the most difficult single tricks available. What is scary is not how hard this trick is-  But how many people are doing crazy links INTO this trick!  If you look at someone like Day Smith who can do a hang-5 straight to a backpacker you would be impressed.  But Andrew Farris takes it even further by doing a FULL barflip (spins the bars a full 360 degrees) while doing a barhop and lands in a backpacker-  INSANE!

To do this trick you really need to have elephant glides dialed- the ride in AND the ride out of elephant glides is KEY to getting this trick down.  For that matter we aren't even going to discuss the details of riding into or out of the trick in that great of detail.

EASY!

Okay-  This isn't easy-  It is REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hard to get dialed.  Some people spend years working on this trick and can only do them about half the time they try.  Others just give up on it all together and stick with tricks where they can flip the bars around and scuff a lot.  It is recommended that you do whatever you want.  This is just one of those tricks that can lead to some INCREDIBLE combinations if you get it really dialed.
