Wakesurfing Kickflip - Where's the video?
 
FlyBoy Wakesurf recently posted a picture of Zoltan Torkos in mid flip on their blog. They said they'll post the video when it's released, but I'm impatient. Has anyone seen it? Here's a link to their write-up. http://flyboywakesurf.com/kick-flip/

First I've heard of it. I want to see it now though. That is crazy!

Dude's got em on lock in the ocean, so it's natural he's ripping them behind the boat. Looks like it was behind James's switchblade Avy. That's a heavy wave. Wonder if he'll be doing them behind other manufacturers! Anyway, sick progression.

Boarders Magazine has the video up here

Whoa! Way more impressive in video. It's interesting how he literally kicks the board mid air to flip it as opposed to a kick flip on a skate board.
That's crazy! Only 5th time wakesurfing too. I guess the skills really do translate over.

dooooOOoOooOOOooOd that was sweet

Man oh man, that was awesome. I wonder who will be the next person to land it? I know plenty of people have the height, but I haven't seen many people ride a board that long. Seems like you'd need to to give you the best opportunity to land back in the sweet spot.
