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.

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.

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.

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.

Check out this video of the first ever wakesurf kick flip done in history here at Vegas Watersports, Lake Mead's only wakeboard school and watersport charter.
