Dude Lands First-Ever Kickflip On A Surfboard

surfingkickflip Dude Lands First Ever Kickflip On A Surfboard

Each sport has a generation of athletes that come in and change the game completely, setting a new standard for the next in line. Surfing may have had it’s moment this past weekend when Santa Cruz surfer Zoltan Torkos nailed the sport’s first-ever successful kickflip on a surfboard.

Back in 2007, Volcom put it out there that they’d cut a check for $10k for the first person to successfully land a kickflip and continue riding. Years went by with nothing, until this video was posted over the weekend. I bet Volcom wasn’t expecting this one in their monthly budget.

Remember when nobody had even considered backflipping a dirt bike? Look at what happened to freestyle motocross after guys like Carey Hart and Travis Pastrana turned the trick into a competition standard. The backflip has become one of the most common tricks (and variations) in the professional FMX world. Will this set a new bar for the future generations? Guess we’ll have to keep checking Youtube.

This video literally blows my mind. How he got the pop for that is beyond me…
