Can our retro geeks name the gear?
1975 footage of first Quadruple Backflip on record
And according to the PBR crew, it doesn't even have to be good beer!
Me too Tog, but its pretty darn cool that they dug this footage out, eh?
Here's what it looks like with three twists.. IMO the pinnacle of old school freestyle skiing was 1982-83 ish. After this the aerialists were more and more gymnasts that didn't actually ski other events or ski at all. Slopestyle and big air seems to be headed back in the right direction though. They just need to add bumps to X-Games and it will be the steez again.

I thought i saw some Nordica banana boots in the vid. I use to sell them in the early 70's. And Steve may have been wearing Jet Sticks as the back of his boots seem to go very high up the calf.
