Each week here on guinnessworldrecords.com, we’ll be dipping into our extensive video library to bring you a classic piece of record-breaking action.
This week’s episode returns o the moment teen skateboarder Alex DeCunha (UK) broke the record for the Most Kickflips in 30 seconds with 18, on the set of Zheng Da Zong Yi – Guinness World Records Special in Beijing, China, on in May 2010.
A Kickflip consists of the skater ollie-ing (raising all four wheels of the board off the ground simultaneously) and then rotating the skateboard along its lengthwise axis 360 degrees with the skater's feet.
Alex broke the previous record of 13 which was completed by both Zachary Kovacs and Michael Sohheh (both USA) at the X Games 14 Guinness World Records Breakfest in Los Angeles, California, USA, on 2 August 2008.
His record has remained unbeaten for six years.
Alex is also the title holder for the Most no comply flips in one minute, recording an impressive 56 on the set of Guinness World Records Smashed at Pinewood Studios in 2009, at the age of 13.
