February 11, 2013

If you're big into skateboarding, chances are you know the name Adam Miller.

And if you're not into skateboarding, that's okay. In fact, you don't have to know a thing about Adam to appreciate how incredible this video is.

According to the Ride YouTube Channel, Adam has just pulled off the "first-ever gainer back flip from one skateboard to another, down six stairs!"

In other words, Adam skates towards a set of six stairs, does a backflip off one skateboard and sticks the landing on another board at the bottom of the stairs.

Make sure you watch the slow-motion replay at the end, so you can really get an idea of how wild this trick is.
