Video: Lee Stone Sets New Guinness World Record With 36 Backflips
Backflips were once the single-most impressive and difficult to execute tricks in all of freestyle. Preparing an engine with enough low end torque and a lightweight machine to be able to snap out of the water with enough force to rotate itself and the ride a full 360 degrees was possibly one of the biggest challenges apart from training the athlete enough to pull it off.
Today, modern freestyle skis are almost pre-programmed to whip out consecutive backflips with the greatest of ease. Modern lightweight engines erupt with insatiable amounts of torque, launching lightweight aftermarket skis (rife with billet aluminum and carbon fiber components) high into the air with just the flick of the throttle. If you like backflips, expect to see at least a dozen of them in nearly every freestyle routine.
