Cricket
Crickets by San Andrea .

Cricket, or hopping handglide, power move, a rotating hop from a turtle or handglide position.

History

The cricket was developed by Nano . The move may have been influenced by turtles, or Lenny Len's "turtle into a hop" . Alien Ness developed the one-hand version in 1984 . A turn clockwise on the right hand (or counterclockwise on the left) is the standard cricket, while the opposite direction can be considered a variation.
