I was flipping through the channels on the day this took place and just happened to stay long enough on ESPN to see this happen. I didn't know it had never been done before.

Jonno - I'm not as impressed ... I do double backflips in my sleep.

Oh, and underwater. They need to add syncro swimming to the x-games. Maybe syncro swimming on motorcycles. Now THAT'S extreme.

In all seriousness though, that was pretty cool.
