Found this retro footage on YouTube.

Reminds me of learning to ski back in (ahem) '78 or '79 or so...

Believe it or not, trick skiing was once considered cool. Went out about the same time as Carter I think...

Ah, the old carefree days. Nice vid. Needed to learn a couple of respectable trick runs for overall, but not sure tricks were ever "cool". Where's the jump ramp?

I busted out my uncle's trick ski's this summer and had a great old time as a 23 year old. It's been a couple of years since I used them, but I can still get up backwards. Not just for you old farts.

I still trick just about every time out on the water. It is, and always has been, cool!!! ;

Tricking was once a major tournament event. Cool? Probably not. Skilled and world reknown? Absolutely.

Wakeboarding evolved from tricks...

Seriously though...

If it is not that popular, why is it still part of the World Championships?

and when did it change to "short-board"?

Never forgotten, a few weeks back. She had 3000+ points in two 20 second trick runs in her bag of tricks, but no more toe hold tricks, just fun.
