Surfboard Kick Flip?

Volcom Kickflipoff

We came across this little gem last night, a surf contest worth $10,000. Sadly, it might be hard for us land-locked Minnesotans  to win this one. It would be hard landing any kick flips wearing  30 lbs of wet, cold neoprene on an 8 foot Bic surfboard or riding a stand up paddle board (Sup) on the cold waters of  lake Superior …

On Nov 21, 2007 Volcom’s KickFlipOff contest Begun.  The comp is open to everyone and will end when some lands a “real” kick flip on a surfboard. The rules sate it must be on video and it must be a air above the lip. Click here to see Volcom’s official rules and regulations.

Somebody already came close at Steamer’s lane in Santa Cruz . Unfortunately it was not up to the standers that are set by Volcom, but non the less it is impressive. Check out the vid below.
