I'll answer my own question.  It's Kauli Seadi.

That's PWA Wave Champ Kauli Seadi from Brazil, and yes, that's
incredible. The word is that he is the first to hit it, but other
sailors are doing it now as well.

Glenn,
I'm sure that I've done that once, but it wasn't intentional.

I will NOT claim rights to name this move, since I have never sailed
away from it, but since accidentally "flopping" into this sequence
when first learining backloops in the Gorge, I have been calling it
the Mobius Loop.  The back into forward sequence came about for me
before I realized that sheeting in on a back loop was a recipe for
disaster.  On one very high attempt, I began to rotate around and
found myself past dead downwind but almost upside down.  Scared of
hights as I am, I sort of freeked out and sheeted in even more and
closed my eyes.  I recall not being certain what exactly transpired,
but I crashed on my back in the basic waterstart position and sort of
blew up.

For years afterwards I tried and tried to pull this off, but the
appeal of a clean back loop kinda kept my Mobius loop attempts to a
minium.  That, the distinct possibility of carnage and a focus on FW
sailing made the Mobius mostly a thing of fantasy.  The only person
that I knew of who actually believed this move was possible (until
now) is Dana Miller who never stopped encouraging the attempts.  Easy
for him, as it was my *** and fiberglass at risk...

So, I'm happy to say......IT"S ALIVE !!!!!

Dan, this move has been around for ages and was originally done back
in the days of aluminum masts, hence the name "Festivus Loop."

(It's a Seinfeld joke) :0

Well, may be a joke to you, but its Mobius to the Restivus.  ;-)
