Sorry, Tony Hawk. Apparently straight backflips are old-school these days.
Instead, how about a backflip that starts and ends on different boards? Egill Gunnar, a skater in Iceland, shows off this absurd rendition of the trick in a YouTube video uploaded July 27.
If Gunnar looks like a youngster, that's because he likely is. No information exists to positively confirm it, but based on his Google+ profile, USA Today's Big Lead Sports speculates he might be in primary school.
Though Gunnar's first attempt in the video isn't successful, a second cut features a much smoother landing. Alarmingly, he isn't wearing a helmet or any other safety equipment, despite a handful of other tumbles documented later in the short clip.
