Nick Merlino Kickflip

Every once in a while you come across a clip like this and it reminds you that skateboarders are just flat out way more rugged than 99% of everyone else on Earth. I love how there’s a couple of spectators through the billion tries and they can’t be bothered to stick around and see if he lands it. So weird.
