  • + 1
 looks like he died! but i think it was a backflip attempt, they usually end up looking like superflips. but hey, maybe im wrong

 superman backflop lol

does that answer your question?
  • + 2
 no it doesnt
  • + 1
 thats more recent than the video and he landed it. he is ok i am good friends with his brother
  • + 1
 was he alright?
  • + 47
 oh fuckin ey thats gotta hurt man! hope ur alright after that hellish crash
  • + 1
 mohahahha
  • + 31
 omg that definitely fucked up your back..
  • + 24
 ya you could of broke your neck easily and been paralyzed foreve from that.
  • + 17
 ouch man hope you are alright...
You ate it can you now do a superman backflip?
  • + 15
 damn it man, get a full face helmet for trying that shit!
  • + 11
 yea man ... where's the link to paypal ... this video should help you collect enough $ for a full face!
  • + 4
 no it would have been worse if he was wearing a full face, he probably would have cracked his neck,
  • + 0
 yea uve got a point face faces have there good points the fact they will crack ur neck and turn ur spine intoa tooth pik not soo good.....but yea nice try dude hope ur ok i know how baddly a crash like that can hurt
  • + 1
 yep that true, full faces and even regulat helmets are SOMETIMES overrated, but only sometimes, its still a good idea, like when i faceplanted goin like 20mph on a bmx when i hopped a ledge and got hung up, i fucked up my face but my helmet really saved my ass, hope hes okay btw
  • + 15
 I hate when PoD's are bad crashes :/ Hope you're all right bro!
  • + 3
 Do u mean VoD?
  • + 2
 Same diff, I hear jakub though it sucks, Hope that guys up and riding soonSmile
  • + 15
 does he die!?
  • + 15
 Hahaha. Favourite comment.
  • + 4
 that's pretty much the same kind of crash that Sephen Murray took when he broke his neck and left him paralized.take care of yourself and be responsable when ridig.if you're not a pro it doesn't make any sense to put yourslef at risk.TAKE CARE!
  • + 3
 #1: Ow. Definitly hope that riders alright. Thats a real easy way to f*ck up the back.

#2: Helmet. Loved seeing it, probably just saved his life

#3: Props for tryin it, but im gonna agree with some above posters in suggesting a foam pit on future tries. Best of luck in getting that down though!
  • + 2
 HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • + 5
 Why is this VOD? Theres nothing great about someone potentially killing themselves.
  • + 3
 he didnt break anything he was just a bit shaky for rest of the day the next day he tried it again almost got it but ended up bending his frame..new frame is in time to go make some more VODs!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 1
 HAHAHAHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH HHAHAHAHAHAH

 man you got alot og ball
  • + 0
 I'd say that's the best out come he could have hoped for from that attempt, but dude, what were you thinking? Healing vibes.

That's exactly why I'll never attempt a back flip, let alone a superman back flip. I'm not a video game character!
  • + 5
 holy sweet nipple
  • + 3
 no1 can down u man, keep it up...healin vibes ur way...and good job on the attempt man! good luck keep it goin!!!
  • + 3
 And This is the Dirt Jump.You have to work verry much time to become a good Jumper.Dude Big Grin
  • + 0
 shit man thats brutal. hope your alright i love seeing people who have those minor crashes like into trees n shit cuze i know whats its liek and its always a good laugh to see some stupid ass crash but that is crzy man. as for the peopel sayings foam pit there not always one around i dont thinks theres even one on the east coast
  • + 0
 holy sh*t dude that looked painfull... dont let it stop you though.. keep riding Razz Razz
may i suggest a foampit next time?
and tbh a full face helmet wouldnt make that much difference... (im just reffering to past comments)
foampit it dude Razz
hope your ok
  • + 0
 sory if i copied ur coment jack didnt really read all the comments before i comented ....it would have taken my like half and hour...but nice point GET BETTER SOON DUDE KEEP IT UP THE ONLY WAY TO BE PRO IS TO RIDE LIKE A PRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 1
 Man every time i see the craziest crash vids or sick biking vids there coming from Canada ( Props for that shit man) your probably going to be up and riding soon enough .... you'll get at jump
  • + 2
 ok so on pinkbike there needs to be videos that make you want to go out and ride...that makes me want to stay on my couch all day watching bike videos!
  • + 3
 Holy mutha trucker!! you got balls of steel.
  • - 1
 kk think about this for a minut..what is a fullface guna do? a neck brace would help but a fullface would make it worse, the piece infront of your jaw would just make good leverage and help push your heade back even farther putting more stress on your neck. In this case he twisded out a bit and landed on the side of his head wich is what prety much saved his back. All a full face is good for is protecting you from getting a face full of rock or tree.
  • + 1
 P.O.D Man Big Cojones ,But really Dude When trying new stuff Suit-up !! Full Protective Gear. When you Master it show off with little LID.
  • + 0
 yea, like ppl above were saying. crash sections in movies just remind us that even the pros aren't invincible and that we shouldnt get too cocky tryin shit and die. hope ur alright dude.
  • + 0
 somebodies gonna need a chiropracter,mad props for no fear though that took serious balls and it really woulda sucked being there i cant handle watchin another rider go down that hard hope you were alright.
  • + 0
 Don't think a helmets gonna stop your neck snapping, it'd probably help if anything. I've seen vids of people learning backflips on step-ups, you've less distance to fall then, maybe try that!
  • + 1
 agreed, if the front of a fullface duggin to the ground he'd probably be alot worse off, good effort tho dude
  • + 1
 i know every1 likes to big up there crash but thats just a backflip n he falls no superman in it
  • + 0
 you wana tell him that ok buddy that was an appempt he can flip amazingly he never bails outtta a flip like this he even told us b4 he went he was gunna try a superflip so dont give me that shit faggot
  • + 2
 "the super man back-flop" lol
  • + 1
 that sucks when you're in the air flying towards the ground and can't move or turn
  • + 0
 man that was looking like it was gonna turn out good. but then it went bad fast! tricks like that are for foam pits and lake jumps, you got some balls for trying on dirt!!!!
  • + 0
 I'm really not sure if this should be VOD... I could understand if it was funny, but that.... that isn't a nice part of our sport, not really something to celebrate.
  • + 0
 Props for trying it, madd props.

But VOD? Common there has to be something better/longer than this uploaded. All this video has is one insane trick bail.
  • + 0
 this is not a superflip attempt, x-up flip. go see it again. why dont try a foampit? please do, couldnt be healty. How is that kid doing anyway?
  • - 3
 ok bud its a fuckin superflip attempt he lost his bike in the air cuz it was his first try he didnt know he had to keep the bike tight to him
  • + 1
 its clearly a superman backflip attempt. idiot.
  • + 1
 that sucks man, heal up soon, and god damn are the people on this site dicks!! how can u think thats funny?
  • + 0
 damn! That hurts so much! I think you tried a backflip for a first time, so why didn't you do it with an fullface? It could be a much better kiss of the ground...
  • - 1
 haha no he had backlfips dialed way before that.
  • + 0
 thats not even like the slightest bit funny
pause at 2.8
that guy broke his neck for sure
how would you like it if you broke your neck and people laughed at you?
  • + 1

  • + 1
 harsh man must have huret a lot. Props for tryin that
