KRUX KICKFLIP CHALLENGE NEW WORLD RECORD – 283 CONSECUTIVE KICKFLIPS!
The record of 219 consecutive kickflips was destroyed by Chris Dziema at Small Empire Skateshop in New Jersey on June 28th, 2006!
Chris quickly made it to 100 kickflips and then asked “What’s the record?”. When he was told it was 219, Chris put his foot back on his board and confidently said “Only 119 more?!” He stomped out the remaining 119 and upped the ante to 283 kickflips! With only 8 Krux Kickflip Challenges remaining, Chris’s odds are looking pretty sweet as the KFC World Record holder for the 2006 season.
*Krux has been in contact with Guinness World Records in hopes of getting the top KFC record holder into the books. More news to follow if and when Krux gets approval from Guinness.*
