Definition: Iouri Podladtchikov’s signature trick -- the yolo flip -- is a mind-blowing combination of flips and spins traditionally described as a cab double cork 1440. Podladtchikov first landed the maneuver in competition in the men’s snowboard superpipe finals at the X Games, Tignes in 2013. It also helped him to secure a gold medal in halfpipe in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Cab: The trick is performed switch frontside.
Double Cork: The Yolo flip includes two inverts.
1440: The flip includes four full 360 degree rotations (2 inverted rotations and 2 standard rotations)
Pronunciation: [yoh-loh] [flip]
Also Known As: Cab double cork 1440
