    I don't have pics right now. Hopefully I can get close to a 90 (that would be my christmas wishlist, since I'm broke for parts, upgrade on skills ).

    This pic was taken before this thread, not really trying to whip it, just twisting bar. It's a decent gap (scary enough for me). I feel this is the "peak" part, and it's where I really need to commit getting it sideways. I just need to make the receiver a bit longer and steeper, just in case I don't pull it back.

    You're a sandbagger, Pare!

    If that's not a badass whip, I don't know what is. You're more sideways than 90% of guys I see (bike park and trails).

    Aiming for 90 bro or at least close to it. I pull back my bars when I get out of my comfort zone. Gonna be riding this weekend, try out the others "technique" discussed here.

    That's not really a "whip" it's more of a scrub. At least that's how I look at it.

    Update. Took these pics from last weekend. Crappy pics though.

    I think this is an ok whip on the practice jump. Not on the big jump though, and not pulled back (pretty sure the back end is begging mercy on the landings). Going to try it out next weekend with a bit more air time, and pulled back.



    Also had the chance to sneak in a bit of "Gangnam" style while practicing
