With a hint of humor, he recounted the audacious maneuvers he performed, including the switch backside 180 and 540 from Forum's THAT. Walsh's casual remark, "You do a switch back 5 off that, you gotta take your time, you could have a coffee in the middle," underscores the sheer magnitude of this feat. Even today, the area remains famous, with a slightly smaller jump known as "step mother" serving as a nod to the legendary original.
