How NOT to Backflip!

Our main man Cleggy stumbled across a video in our inbox which went viral instantly after it was posted up. I’m sure you guys will remember it because it was only a couple of weeks ago, but the post was called ‘How Not To Feeble Grind’ featuring Max Eyre. He basically did a feeble grind, got caught-up and somehow ended up doing an insane ninja style flip over his bars to a pretty harsh slam. It was by far the funniest bail I’ve had the pleasure to view and I must of watched it a good 20+ times. (sorry Max) You’re not alone though mate, we had to do a Round 2 when we received another video of some kid in pink jeans eating shit in a spectacular fashion too.

Anyway… With all of these fail videos being sent in, it got me thinking about which other tricks we could do an EPIC FAIL on, so I thought back to when a good friend Ian ‘Dyno’ Beverley posted this whopper of a backflip fail. At the time it kind of put me off doing flips for a while but I got my confidence back with em after a while. Dyno was OK, just to let you guys know. He walked away from it with a couple of minor injuries thankfully then went to Spain on a BMX road trip the day after!

This video had me nearly pissing myself with laughter too, it’s another flip attempt which ends up turning out like some kind of superman flip and I’ve got no idea how the hell he manages to ride away from it but it results in one monumental BALL RIDE!

One last flip fail for you guys… This one results in a snapped frame, also a fantastic use of R Kelly – I believe I can fly on the replay.

And finally… We have this old favourite we featured quite a while back.
