I got the impression that they are not pushing that much on the lower levels, which is good. I can hardly do any trick on level 4, but they feel like a good challenge, however I want to try the basecup hanging fast hand spike (5-7) which is similar to something I have landed.

In general I think that this trick lists are maturing now after three years into a more exponential difficulty towards the higher levels, which I think is a great evolution.

I'm liking the selection of tricks a lot more than previous year, specially 8-7, 8-8 & 8-9 are really cool.

I agree @shalafi I really like Alex Smiths level 7 Hanging swinger lighthouse (nearly landed it a minute ago)!

He does a lunar version too!

I wonder if levels 9 & 10 will be where the mind bending stuff is inc Yank tricks?

I find level 9 quite freaking hard and still elegant (which is something I missed past year)

Happy now @KenSan ? I find 10-9 particularly mind bending.

Yes your right @shalafi its definitely getting mind bending now! Not that 7,8 or 9 weren't! And I agree there is more of an elegance with the tricks so far this year.

The airplane 3 turn juggle ghost penguin fall in was pretty damn cool from the level 10 section, and Yuki Yaos stilt cushion tap stilt was really nice on level 9 too!
