    Ok so i was looking at the scoring sheet for the L6 capital cup. First of all I don’t even know what half the highscoring moves are (not that many could be done on champlain… take it back maybe ninja yappa)
    Why don’t kayaking moves have cool names like skateboarding and snowboarding.

    comeon Flip turns and split wheels and LUNAR ORBITS(whats that?)
    But Kayaking does have Blunts and Blunts are very goood

    maybe i’m just jealouse cause I can’t do Lunar Orbits or Phenix Monkeys

    Peace

    I mean too bad we couldn’t have cool names like they do in skating like the Tripple Sow Cow.

    i wonder what sport has the coolest names of tricks?

    i think the silliest is the “mcnasty”. lame!

    i like ones like air screw but not donkey flip…

    are you kidding I think McNasties is way more hardcore than an airscrew. Airscrew sounds like a space cadet wet dream! :oops:

    ^^^ agreed,
    Blunt is definately a good name, and it fits quite nicely into one of kayakings wonderful sub-cultures.
    cartwheel is a good name purly because it makes sence, as with splitwheel. air screw is a sweet name. just because it sounds hard.
    phonix monkey is cool just cause i’m a big south park fan.

    other than that i think most names are rather silly and they definately could have come up with better ones… oh well, im not good enough to invent moves yet so i guess i am stuck using the ones other people came up with.
