You won’t believe your eyes. We’ve posted brakeless videos on Tribal Zine before, each more impressive than the last, but this one tops them all. We had to watch it a few times just to make sure we hadn’t missed a set of brakes, or some strings or something. And yet… There are none! ANd watch his hands at 01:03! Flipp lands big sidehops, spins, bunnyhops and gaps with incredible ease… The last clip in the video left us with our chins on the floor!

It’s a real show of talent and skill!


And here’s the blooper reel, proving that it doesn’t all come quite SO easily…
