    That's nuts.

    What we don't see is the footage of him in the emergency room later for spinal inujuries.

    Yah, it's pretty annoying. Normal people try not to drive 120mph on the freeway, we stay away from juggling swords, don't try to haul 500lb objects up a flight of stairs by ourselves.... etc etc.... and then comes these kids who seem hell bent on getting themselves hurt in the most dramatic fashion possible.

    He's lucky. Perhaps he has experience at backflipping and just wanted to prove something. He walked away this time. Others have not been so fortunate.

    You wonder how many people will be... "inspired" to try to duplicate this.

    By the looks of it that guy has experience. It's not easy to be able to time it like he did and land just as your feat are coming around, and to bend the knees and absorb the landing. Pretty amazing flip though, if stupid.

    I was thinking the same thing, he seemed pretty confident that he knew he could do it. Unlike that poor guy in Fred's post. :surprised

    WOW, that's very impressive.

    This guy is certainly a professional otherwise this kind of "trick" cannot work. I mean, just to be able to do a back flip on an ordinary trampoline requires much training. To do this, one needs to be very confident.

    Maybe its just a coincadence? I mean i'm sure theres hundreds of people who end up breaking their legs on video... and statistically SOMEONE has to hit it right on the money eventually...
