Skateboarder Adam Miller has managed to defy gravity in a trick that many are calling epic.

Miller said the jaw-dropping stunt is a “gainer backlfip from one skateboard to another” and it’s believed to be the first one ever pulled off–on camera at least.

Miller posted his video on YouTube and has gotten props from around the world, including from skate legend Tony Hawk.

Hawk Instagrammed the flip and sent out a link, calling the stunt “AMAZING.”
