Re: Some Outrageous Moves!

Looking more through Damien's youtube shows that he used to be a power tumbler. This guy is probably a quick twitch demon.

Dunno about the L pullup toe touch. Double straddle side somi was very cool.

the no handed back flip series are called back whips. this is a variation of a back handspring that doesn't use the hands and shoulders to push so it's all legs and abdominal and back power to crank it.

thanks for sharing as I hadn't seen this before.

Re: Some Outrageous Moves!

Have you seen those boots with pogo springs on them. Hell, I want a pair to go to work in. Supposedly you can hit 15-25mph and stride 10 feet.

I've even seen people flip in them and other crazy ****e.

Though, driving a Segway to work might be fun if they get up as fast as I here (35mph).

Wow, he's like a living video game character. That, or else the Matrix really does exist and he's stumbled into it...

Re: Some Outrageous Moves!

Looks like the guys decided to have their own regular show:

Cool Re: Some Outrageous Moves!

Spent the weekend in Boston, and one of my favorite things is to watch the street performers there. These guys do some amazing gymnastics...on concrete!

One guy did this strange backwards/overhead type of planche. I have no idea what it's called: Click image for larger version

Here's a link to some grainy video of them too. One guy did back handsprings literally on the same spot over and over and over. Amazing.

I am pretty sure that's a head hollow. There are variations of them with the head off the ground too. Pretty big from my bboying days... haha

bboying and parkour are different beasts. Just gives you a bigger pool of folks to be in love with
Lots of street talent out there for sure.
