Surfer lands the first ever backflip in a contest, gets a perfect 10 [video]
Posted by on May 16th, 2016

There are some crazy surfing tricks out there, but most professional surfers wouldn’t try them during a competition given the risk and possibility of losing the heat. There is money and of course world surf league points at stake, but clearly Gabriel Medina doesn’t think those are worth more than the bragging rights of being the first surfer ever to pull off a perfect backflip during a competition. Medina nailed the backflip at the Oi Rio Pro event over the weekend and was rewarded with a score of 10. He won his heat, but the event is currently on hold.
