Dare To Dream: Alleged First Video Of Someone Performing A Standing Double Backflip

August 27, 2018

This is allegedly the first video uploaded to the internet of a standing double backflip performed on flat ground (and with no bouncy pad). For the sake of transparency, I'll be the first to admit I did not fact-check that claim. Also I'm not sure I'd technically call it a standing double backflip since he does step into the flip. I'll have to check the rulebook on that one. *checking rulebook* Yep, that's frowned upon. "That's a nudie magazine." I found it under the sofa when I was cleaning! "You were cleaning?" I found it under the sofa when I was chasing my lucky lotto scratcher nickel.

Keep going for the video, as well as a video of Nick Fry's journey to a double backflip. Personally, I'd be happy being able to perform a single standing backflip but whenever I'm practicing in a bounce castle some parent always comes to tell me I wasn't invited to this birthday party.

Thanks to hairless, who dreams of becoming the first person to perform a triple backflip from seated in a folding chair.

    Hard to believe he's able to get so much rotation with balls as large as he has.

  • TheQiwiMan

    That is insanely impressive. Amazing.

    He'll be needing knee surgery when he gets older....guaranteed.

    I think he will need back surgery before then

    I got a strain by putting on my socks without sitting down this weekend.
    *sigh* I need to work out.

    I hurt my back when I was 18 and I smoked a lot of weed to cope with the pain.

    The only thing that actually helped long term though was working at a lumber mill for 9 months. Spending all day moving tonnage of raw green lumber helped me strengthen my back. By the time I was laid off from that job I felt pretty good lifting and moving around. I haven't worked there since 2005 and I'm mostly free of back pain (also don't do drugs or drink anymore which I'm sure helped reduce inflammation over time).

    That's what flipping out is all about !
