Of course John Florence can land backflips on a snowboard; video

Surfing’s long-anointed golden child has been realizing his destiny the past couple of years. Finally winning his first World Title in 2016, John Florence then backed it up with a second World Title in 2017. John is truly on a roll. He’s also dominated the SURFER Awards, won The Eddie and won three Triple Crowns.

So it makes sense that the extremely talented Florence can also huck some pretty insane backflips on a snowboard -- we know he can already land them out in the water.

And Florence wasn’t the only surfer tossing around some backflips at Baldface Lodge in British Columbia, Canada. His friend Jamie O’Brien and brothers Nathan and Ivan both got in on the backflip action as well.
