Whilst either backward or forward the skier shall maintain one-foot BSP whilst simultaneously executing a one-hand-wave trick.
50pts forward
125pts backward

The picture of this trick backward failed the security scan and I cannot upload it

OK like this one.
Basic and reverse needs to have the same scores, judging would be a nightmare otherwise.

The skier must start from 2 foot BSP? Otherwise its a quick point scorer at the end of a back toe or after a front one foot.

In back position can the skier use the toe strap when hooking the foot?

If we do this for backwards, the back one hand should also become a trick, giving a path for the novice skiers.

Paul, There is no limitation on a wave being forward.. Just like the hop it is allowed in either position..BUT doing a proper wave backward is a bitch.. Doing it from one foot (foot hooked on rope) is much easier..

After I started thinking more about this trick I also thought about requiring the tricks to start from 2 feet.. I agree with Paul on that

So how about this:

From either backward or forward two-foot BSP the skier shall achieve one-foot BSP whilst simultaneously executing a one-hand-wave trick.
