Here is ma boi Joel Ryan last winter on his 2nd or 3rd backflip attempt.  I'm not sure what's wrong with him, but this is one of the more pittiful backflip attempts that I have ever seen.  probably a mixture of commitment issues and being a racer from Newfoundland...

I sound like an asshole for laughing, but this was kind of a reoccuring event and I couldn't help myself.
