“What is the hardest trick you have learned so far and is there a trick you are trying to master now?”

Racheal: I think the body varial drop, well… there’s hard technical and then there’s hard mental. The body varial drop was the most difficult for me mentally because it was a body varial variation which is how I hurt my ankle. So, I was really scared to do that one and I really didn’t feel confident doing it until Raequel McCosker was like “dude you got it go for it”!

Racheal: The most hard trick technically I think was the lemonade challenge. It’s when you stand on the rail, that one is hard! I did that one for the first time on the pint and it was so hard because the pint is so much smaller! But technically, I think that’s the hardest trick and also the body varial bonk is still something I am toying with the idea of getting down but it may not be worth it for me due to my previous injury.
