Which part of the wave would i be able to pull off a reversed 360 aerial?
Is it advisable to approach the feathering lip prior to the attempt or would it be better off if i were to build speed by staying high on the wave and waiting for the face to break halfway before it feathers prior to attempting? Would a quad work better in attempting a reversed 360 aerial?
And lastly, did you pay your taxes yet?

If you build up enough speed and come from the lower part of the critical part of the wave (deep in the pocket, near the trough of the wave) you will have the best chance of making you REVERSED move. lol.
or would it be better off if i were to build speed by staying high on the wave and waiting for the face to break halfway before it feathers prior to attempting? Even if you have enough speed, if you are up high on the face and you wait for the face to break, you will surely kook it. I'm not into quads, so no comment.

since when do I have to pay taxes for giving free advice on the internet.

I was waiting for you to ask me if i was goofy foot or regular stance. It makes a big difference if i was facing the wave or against it, which is why i asked. Here's a sample but on a longboard ridden goofy foot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N28DWm5mvyE
Both examples were of goofy stance. It’s difficult to find one completed in a regular stance, which is another reason why I asked. I was also hoping that you had some other source of information if you weren’t able to answer my question. And no, you don’t pay taxes to give “advice” on the internet, you just have to pay it regardless.

Oops! The shortboard is regular stance and the longboarder was goofy. 360 reversed aerial is difficult to do frontside which is why it's hard to find any clips of anyone successfully completing a 360 reversed aerial from a frontside takeoff, goofy or regular stance.
Another question. Have you traveled far and wide to really be qualified to give advice or are you considering yourself "qualified" based on your age alone?

You are a fool. Why ask questions that you have no idea about. You never talked about wether the wave was a left or a right, you only asked about doing a reversed aerial 360 (BTW, reverse is the right term). A reverse 360 aerial on a mal???? WOW!!!!! If you have seen that, I'll wait for the paint to dry. AlKieta, you are a kook. Not worth giving my time to. Don't expect another reply. This service is for sincere surfers that really want to learn about surfing. Please keep your foolishness out of here, you are obviously not really experienced as a surfer. For your next post, lets just say I have been around. How about you?

Why is it that you get mad when someone questions your “qualifications’? Are you hiding something? You honestly could not give me an answer so you resort to name calling. I didn’t mention whether the wave was a left or a right because it is not a factor in pulling off the maneuver. The only thing that matters is if the rider is facing the wave or if his back is against it. The video links I gave you was what I was referring to. You didn’t even understand the question in the first place because the maneuver is beyond your understanding KOOK! The only thing believable about you is that you’ve been around areas where no one knows your reputation so you can sell ideas into people’s heads about what you want them to believe.

How do you tell someone, newby, non-local or otherwise, to follow surf etiquette without coming off as a bully in the lineup. We all know that nice is nice but how would you handle someone who replies with hostility? Localism forms when newbies, non-locals and others ignore the etiquettes, especially those who ignore the rules for everyone's safety.
I just want to know your approach, especially from a "20 year veteran".

Alkieta, with your first question. I did answer you right. A reverse 360 air, is a airial and he does a full 360 turn while he is in the air. The surfer has to be on his backhand (back to the wave). It doesnt matter if he is goofy or natural. The youtube links you left, shows the shortboarder doing a proper reverse 360 airial. He actually does it the way I explained it to you. He comes from the pocket of the wave and down the bottom (trough) of the wave. The guy on the mal does not do a 360 air. He does some sort of 180 ollie. As I thought, a mal rider would not be able to do a proper reverse 360 air. It was unproffessional of me to call you a fool and a kook. Look at the youtube vids again very carefully and you might understand what i am saying.
