I bet you never thought it was possible to land a kickflip on a surfboard.
Neither did Volcom.
So a few years ago they held a $10,000 contest, and whoever landed the first surfboard kickflip on video would win.
A guy name Zoltan Torkos managed to pull off an awkward one, but Volcom didn’t want to count it.
A whole debate from the surf community followed, and Volcom eventually paid up.
But Zoltan is still at it, and his latest kickflip is by far the smoothest we’ve seen!
Some older videos of Zoltan’s kick flips:
A lot of people think the kickflip just isn’t going to “stick” in surfing… the style just isn’t right.
I kind of agree.
What do you think? Stylish or just a novelty?
