Frontend Whip

Trick ID: 332
Whip position engaged just before the catch.



Swing out and back to the platform. As you swing back forwards again, bring your legs up in front of you to quickly get into a Whip position at the frontend before opening for the catch. This trick seems like it should be similar to a Pelican, but because you can't sweep your legs up into the Whip position (the bar is in the way) it is usually less graceful.

Unlike the normal Whip, a Frontend Whip is best performed with a Regular Grip, to make sure you have enough space between your arms to quickly pass your legs.
