The McTwist & The Mc Double

by The Editors on March 18, 2010

Mcgill 8

The Coast News gets the straight scoop on the McTwist and Shaun White’s Double McTwist 1260 from the trick’s originator Mike McGill (seen above at the Encinitas YMCA).

“It definitely feels good when somebody like Shaun White gives you props for your trick,” said McGill, who landed the first McTwist at a Swedish summer camp in 1984. “I made the trick and I still couldn’t believe how he was going to do two (spins) because you are going blind twice.”

Nice reminder of where things have come from and where they’re going.
