RedBull: Name That Trick
Help Name This New Wakeboard Trick
“Being the first person to land a trick [has been] one of my goals since I was little,” said Italian wakeboarder Massimiliano Piffaretti, “And to finally be able to make this dream come true — it’s awesome.”
Recently, Massi achieved his goal and performed a new type of double rotation — amazingly combining two aerial spins, in opposite directions, to land the never-been-done trick.
Help Massi give a name to this new trick.

In order to get a little more information about how this new move came together, we sat down with Massi to learn more.
RedBull.com: How did you ever get the idea to try and spin in both directions?
Massimiliano Piffaretti: I thought about it in Australia like four years ago. But I never actually tried it. Last year, I saw my friends Trever Maur and Derek Cook trying this trick. And ever since, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
So what convinced you to go for it?
While in Florida the other day, we had perfect conditions and a solid crew in the boat. Parks Bonifay was driving and was pumping me up.
That must have been extra motivation.
You know, when a legend like Parks gets stoked, you get this insane energy that kind of makes you feel invincible. So I decided to try it and ended up landing it — so stoked!
What would you name this new trick?
Should we call it the “Zero” — since I do a 360 spinning one way and another 360 spinning the other way?
