Snowboarder makes new moves – level 2

22-04-2015 07:00

A snowboarder from Great Britain keeps accomplishing new manoueveres for his sport. In 2011, he made the triple backside rodeo. It is a trick when a snowboarder moves in a circle in the air, as he keeps going in the same direction that he started. He was the first one to make this move.

Now, he made the 1,800 quadruple cork, and it is a trick when a snowboarder flips four times at the same time as his body spins five rotations. People thought that he would be able to make this move and he proved them correct!

Difficult words: manouevre (a difficult and complicated move), rotation (to spin in a complete circle).

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