1986 – 17 year old Cesare Cantagalli from Italy unleashes his talents in Hawaii completing the first forward rotating loop at the Maui Aloha Classic that ultimately played a huge part in determining the future of this extreme sport. Before then the only jumps that scored were high jumps, long jumps and some tabletops and backloops!
The ‘cheeseroll’ is an acrobatic move that seemed to go against the laws of physics: the cheese roll (literally “rolled cheese”, but nicely associated with the name of Caesar-roll turned into cheese by Hawaiian friends).
The move consisted of a jump with a complete board and sail.
From there were developed variants now known to all wave and freestyle enthusiasts like looping or the ‘forward loop’.
