    I do not want to be there if he ever screws one of those flips up. It’s bad enough to see a relatively healthy person not land one, but seeing a paralyzed person? But still, “mad props” is right!

    Guess bi-fida is not enough, he’s going for the self inflicted tri-fida.

    Careful, man! Doing that, you’re liable to break your ba– um, nevermind.

    Hmmm…. they need to have a Para-X-Games.

    Clicked for the backflip, stayed for the totally cute love story.

    Veritasluxmea22@13 and Camfrye@14 – He’s got spina bifida and he’s in a wheelchair, there’s no reason to assume he’s paralyzed. Just saying. :)

    @ Crash! Bang!

    I thought the same thing: How can one be a record, but several weren’t enough to be a record? The article doesn’t clarify much, but my guess is that the consecutive backflips in 45s record was previously set sans wheelchair, but he was going to beat it avec wheelchair.

    That literally brought tears to my eyes. The youtube video needs to be linked from the wiki for “Balls to the wind”. Mad props fo sho!

    I think that if they weren’t already in a wheelchair, learning to do back-flips might put them in one.

    totally badass.

    MAD PROPS for not backing down, accepting and slouching, but driving to continue athleticism and rocking the ramps.

  13. Crash! Bang! says:

    i’m confused. if he’s the FRIST!, then wouldnt just doing 1 in a row be a record?

    Roll on, bro.. roll on!
