Fakie 900° contest

Lets have a jumping contest. Everyone has until August 1st, 2009 to post a video of a Fakie 900°. That’s just a little over a month. Than we will have a poll on August 1st, where every one votes on this supposed Fakie 900° to see whether they think it’s a valid Xtreme Ice Skating jump or not.
