It's not every day that an 18-year-old defies gravity, let alone in a stunt video for Tony Hawk. Adam Miller, the teen who hails from Alburnett, Iowa, was approached by the legendary, professional skateboarder after he submitted footage of his skills to Hawk.

Hawk created a YouTube channel called RIDE in January 2012 consisting of all-things skating, and he wanted to feature a video of Miller doing this unique trick. According to the New York Daily News, the stunt is known as a "gainer backflip from one skateboard to another," and Miller is believed to be the first person to ever successfully complete this skateboard stunt.

After Hawk tweeted about Adam Miller's video, the YouTube clip has collected over 2.4 million views since it was released on February 8th.
