Backflip machine: Pro snowboarder conquers iconic move on board, skis, skate and more

If there was ever a doubt about whether Windells Camp is truly “the funnest place on Earth,” perhaps pro snowboarder Trevor Jacob’s recent edit can put the issue to rest. Jacob, who spent his summer on the legendary Mt. Hood campus, took full advantage of the superior Windells training facilities by expanding his trickery into new fields. What did Jacob concentrate his efforts on accomplishing? Backflips.

Jacob wasn’t trying to polish the move on his snowboard – he’s had those for years – but instead sought to conquer all sorts of different action sports with the iconic show-off move. He would end up pulling the move on a skate, snowboard, skis, bike, and trampoline; proving Jacob is clearly an equal opportunity backflipper.

So without further adieu, check out Jacob as he pulls off not one, not two, but five different backflips.
