It's the move…everyone… is talking about!
A few hours ago, this website turned the naming of a two-turn combo, which had just premiered, over to its readers. The move, which is a floater-in, chop-hop out, drew out the following names.
Chop Gooey. (OttoBeenThere)
Cosby! (Nicky Buttonshaw)
The Stormy Daniels. (Noncompetitor)
Taiwanese Botched Tit Job (Wiggolly’s Paddling Style)
We threw in Teflon Floater and the Bored Housewife.
The winner, as it had to be, was “Cosby!”
As explained by Nicky Buttonshaw, “Wave thinks you’re just going to do an innocent floater but you end up doing something ugly at the end.”
When I call Wade Goodall at his house in Bangalow, near Byron Bay, about the move, which took place at White’s Beach and was filmed by his friend Harry Triglone, he says, “It doesn’t need a name. No commentators are going to be talking about it. It’s a fun way to do a floater It’s disco, it’s a party.”
Wade say the Cosby in its current form, on a two-foot wave, is unimpressive and therefore his goal is to nail it on something of relative consequence. Maybe a six-footer.
“Real excited to try it out on a bigger one now that I’ve worked out the movement,” he says.
The inspiration, say Wade, came from watching skaters pop out of tricks, “the crazy footwork” and so on.
The trick to making one, or at least throwing your hat in the ring of attempting a Cosby!, is doing the chop-hop before you lose all your speed in the floater.
“The pop is hard,” says Wade. “I’ve lost heaps of mine having metal legs (Wade has broken his legs three time). I’ve had so much…rod work… knee-to-ankle on both side, knee-to-hip on my right. I’ve got no pop! I can’t suck it up like I used to. Although, it’s just got to a stage where it’s not hurting so I can try hit again.”
Wade, who is thirty-one years old and the father of two small children, is currently “getting the band together” for a movie with Vans, which will premiere during the Hawaiian season in December.
A working title?
“Not as Yet”
