Skateboarder backflips from one board to another


YouTube: Egill Gunnar

There's amazing, there's unreal and then there's this.

Icelandic skateboarder Egill Gunnar decided a simple backflip wasn't enough, opting to do a backflip that begins on one board and ends on another.

The video shows a couple of his failed attempts before he completely nails it. Even his failed attempts look good. I can't even jump on a single skateboard without it flying out from under me and landing on my rear-end... But hey, there's a reason why I write news stories for a living.

Since being posted Saturday, the video has more than 87,000 views.
