This is straight nuts! Steve Corbett hucks himself into history, performing the first quad backflip on skis in 1975 at Whistler. Apparently, the Guinness Book of World Records refused to accept the record due to the danger of the stunt. Corbett ended up sending it 170′, 80′ off the deck on skis that appear to be around 200cm.
While the quad starts at about 3:00, this video is pretty well edited and gives some perspective on what went down that day. Take a few extra minutes and watch the whole thing.
Interestingly enough, the cameras lose Corbett on the landing, but we’re pretty sure he stomped it.
