Snowboarder makes new moves – level 1

22-04-2015 07:00

A snowboarder lives in Britain. He likes to make new moves in snowboarding.

He makes the triple backside rodeo. This happens in 2011. He moves in a circle in the air. He keeps moving in the same direction.

Then he makes the 1,800 quadruple cork. This happens in 2015. He flips four times. His body spins in five circles. All of this happens at the same time. People said that they that thought that he could do it. They were right!

Difficult words: quadruple (four), flip (when the body moves in a circle from head to feet), spin (when the body moves in a circle from left to right),

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
