    Freestyle Combos
    You may begin a freestyle (flatland) combo w/ any manual super move except the One 
    Wheel Nosemanual and Sproing. 
    You must have a full special meter to do these combos. 
    At any point you may switch to the following: 
         Anticasper                     (left, right + grind)
         Casper                         (right, left + grind)
         Handstand                      (right, right + grab)
         Truckstand                     (right, right + grind) 
    You may always move up to a prior move in the listing tree. 
    Casper, Anticasper or Truckstand 
         +   Handstand                  (right, right + grab) 
              +   Handflip              (left + flip) 
         +   To Rail                    (left, left + grind) 
              +   Rail Flip             (left + flip)

    Truckstand only 
         +   Truckspin                  (right, right + grind) 
         +   Truckstand Flip            (left + flip) 
         +   Pogo to Hair Flip          (L2 + R2 + grind) (Rodney Mullen Only)

    tricks then just go back into one of the 4 moves and start anew!
