C3YoYoDesign just dropped another great video, this one featuring Polish team member Maciek Cwynar.
There’s some quality counterweight play in this quick minute-plus video, and the horizontal regen at 0:45 is a really neat move. There’s also a great combination of deadspin toss moves (I’m making up the terminology as I go here, folks) starting at 0:51. I’ve really enjoyed those since the first ones I fiddled with in 2007, but it’s not a concept I’ve put much effort in to…so it’s really nice to see someone else doing something cool with it. Deadspin counterweight tosses like this have shown up as throw-away elements in a handful of contest freestyles over the years, but usually just as a quick transition rather than anything that’s expanded upon and explored.
If you’ve got examples of other deadspin counterweight moves, post links in the comments section and maybe we’ll expand on the idea for a future Trick Theory post.
