Two words, triple backflip. The previous double backflip benchmark set by Dave Mirra in the 2000 X-Games stood for 11 years until 2011 when Jed Mildon decided he’d had enough of the laws of physics and it was about time someone taught them a lesson.
In his home town of Taupo, New Zealand Jed battled through genuine fears of death to give gravity a proper kicking and add an extra flip to the world record.
“Jed battled through genuine fears of death…”
This insane feat propelled Jed to international fame and has become a trick that he now casually throws down while on tour with Nitro Circus.
Jed’s boundary busting antics didn’t stop there though and with the world’s first double backflip tailwhip under his belt all eyes are on the Kiwi Warrior to see what he does next.
Obviously fingers are crossed for an awe-inspiring quad attempt at some point – after all what’s one extra flip between friends?!
