In skate parks around the country, performing — and actually landing — a 720° double kickflip is an awesome feat to see, but it can be made even more awesome when you play it back in slow motion. To the naked eye, the skateboarding trick happens so fast you can’t exactly tell what’s going on with the deck and the skater, but when shot at 1,000 frames per second and played back normally, you can appreciate the skill needed to accomplish it.
This amazing skill is displayed by skateboarder Robbyn Magby at Riley skatepark in Farmington Hills, Michigan, who performs the feat effortlessly for filmmaker Adam Shomsky. In slow motion, you can really see the rotation of the skateboard, while Magby gets his airtime up above:
