    Question JJF - a new move?

    was watching vids of him recently at pipe - when he drops to the bottom backside he
    reaches in and 'rudders' with his right hand on a backside bottom turn. obviously i'm not
    kelly but never seen this one before - anyone?

    No, it's an old one. Called a layback.

    ya got me tinkin. maybe it Is a layback.
    but the arm on a layback is a pivot.
    he's ruddering.
    which i guess could be a layback where (the rest of us) wouldn't normally see one.

    I know he does drag his hand in a way that other guys try to copy but never seen anyone properly do it. I dont think there is a name...

    Laird Hamilton did this at Teaupoo years ago. He even talks about dragging the right hand backside in a movie (forget which one).

    Does Laird every ride anything where he's required to do a pop-up?
