Megaramp changes everything. Definitely caters to giving you enough hangtime to spin however many times you want. Still crazy, though.

On one hand I'm totally bewildered a 12 year old can do this (so clean too), and am so amazed.

On the other, my basic knowledge of physics makes this largely unsurprising for a small kid like him to pull this off in today's mega vert world. He has the right size and agility, enough ramp to boost him up, and compounded with his fearlessness to chuck himself up that high.. it's very sensible.

Either way, groundbreaking.

Is fakie easier than doing it regular? I could do a full cab but not a fs or bs 360's

Either way it's sick

With bigger ramps, anything is possible.  But for a 12yo, how stoked would you be if you landed that shit?  I'd pissed my pants right then and there.   Just for fun.  Cause how you going to talk shit after I did that, even with piss running down my leg?


Birdman definitely missed that boat though.

Yeah, I guess. Fakie 720s have always been more common than regular ones, right? So much so that they'd just call them '720s' in the XGames etc.

it makes total sense. a guy tony's age and size can do 9's on a vert ramp. then a kid of this age and size should be doing 10's on the mega.
props though, i would never hit coping on that qp.
