{Right here} is the {^hk1^} champ, Christian Brekke with 1424 kickflips in a row! What is a kicklip you ask? Its that {thing} that your kid does outside all day just {^hk3^} he learns how to pop an ollie. A Kickflip is defined as a variation on an ollie {exactly where} the skateboarder flicks his front foot off the heel edge of the board as he ollies, causing it to flip {as soon as}, twice or even {3} {times} {before} he ‘catches’ the board with his feet and lands the trick.

{Right here} is the sign that Krux trucks has {^hk1^} that keeps {hk21^^} updated.

Krux Trucks has issued a challenge and the {^hk1{2}^} are {^hk1{3}^}. Do as {^hk1{4}^} kickflips
in a row as {^hk1{5}^}.

new records are {being} set. Zach Kral was the {^hk1^} record
holder with 1,200 straight kickflips which beat the {prior} record holder Diego
Najera, who landed {almost} 600 consecutive kickflips. Now the new champ is Christian
Brekke
and he won the Session Kickflip Challenge in his {home} town of
Bergen, Norway. Christian managed to do 1424 kickflips in a row and he is now

on and its {^hk1{5}^} that somebody else can take Christian Brekke
down. We will {keep} you posted.

    Defining a kickflip as a variation of an ollie isn’t quite right. Kickflips were being performed before boards had even one kicktail, let alone the double kicktail that makes an ollie easier. The term “ollie air”, meaning a no-hands aerial, didn’t appear until the mid-to-late 70′s, when Alan Gelfand invented the maneuver, doing it while flying out of swimming pools (that’s where we used to skate), not on flat ground. Kickflips had already been a common flat ground trick, probably for decades. Kids may learn ollies first now, but there was a time when that wasn’t really possible.

    Anon.. you are living in the past.
    Every time I or anyone else does a kickflip, you have to pop the board up and do a small ollie. Then you flick, how else can people flick such high kickflips now a days?

    To kirkydan

    Its much more pointless, time-consuming, and less exercise that playing Wii. Go back to kotaku and continue eating your McDonalds burger. Just so long as you don’t procreate.

    Zach Kral regains the kickflip crown by throwing down 1546 consecutive flips at an official Guinness Records attempt at 4Seasons. For Guinness, the event was video taped from start to finish and they require that the rider stays on the board for the entire attempt, with no body part touching at all. It was also his 14th birthday.

    jeez the amount of time this would take is pointless, lets say 5 seconds each kickflip and getting more and more tired after each one…..
