Last week I asked Mark Angulo a few questions:
GP: "Mark, how many times have you tried your Mutant?"
GP: "How many times have you landed it?"
Mark: "Five, two of which perfectly clean"
GP: "Has anyone caught one of them on video?"
Mark: "No, not yet."
Well, unless something changed in the meantime, here's the first video ever of a successful Mutant.
PS: Well, clearly not after seen the one in the comments.
As you can see also from the photo below, it's definitely a peculiar move, in which Mark gets pretty much vertical upside down.
As you can also see from the slideshow below, the new generation of acrobatic sailors are not afraid of throwing rotations off the lip, but so far I've never seen anyone else trying a Mutant. Who knows, it might be forever a Mark Angulo's unique signature move...
Many thanks to Nico Drasimino who filmed it and sent it to me. Here he is in a shot of his own new personal move. Nico, what's the name of that one?
I also feel like linking once again Nico's mega backloop youtube clip. Respect.
Here's the slideshow from yesterday. Beautiful sunny day, waves, 45 sailors in the water, helicopters, four water photographers, way too crowded for me, but a hell lot of fun taking photos. Victor was all about forwards off the lip and just about everyone was going off big time. Enjoy the show.
