Every Little Thing You Do – Saturday 31/03/2012
Empire Park, Bar Beach – New South Wales, Australia. The old school skaters held a re-union for people that have been skating since the mid to late 1980’s. A local skater called John Bogaerts performs a skate trick called an Eggplant Invert at the meetup.
A normal invert is done by grabbing the board with your leading hand and reaching down with your back hand – planting that hand on the wall or the coping. That movement throws you upside down and your board gets airborne in the process. An Eggplant is very similar but you swap hands to do the trick. Maybe they should re-name it a “Pretzel” because of the way your body twists up on itself to do the trick.
