You know how this started: Freestylist Daniel Martin went completely insane and performed a staggering 20-something consecutive backflips during a performance during the final rounds of 2013’s UWP-IJSBA Watercross National Tour, and everyone went crazy. But what was more crazy was the chatter than ensued. “Was that a World Record?” “How many backflips is the World Record?” “Who’s recording this?”
Well, UWP Watercross’ AJ Handler has had enough and did the impossible. He booked a Guinness World Records Adjudicator to be present at this year’s Round 4 of the National Tour – namely the Sparks, Nevada stop scheduled for June 29th. So if you’re a freestyler who knows how to defy gravity and do so without losing your lunch, there will be a “flip off” held that you cannot miss.
Here’s the official announcement:
The Pro Watercross Tour is excited to announce that we have secured a Guinness World Records® title attempt for the “Most Consecutive Backflips on a Personal Watercraft” scheduled for Sunday, June 29, 2014 in Sparks, NV (Reno, NV). We are extending an invitation to Freestylist from around the world to join us in setting a New Guinness World Record.
A Guinness World Records Adjudicator will be on site to authenticate the record-setting event to present a certificate that officially proclaims the winner as the world record holder.
