This skateboarder received help from a friend when executing a kickflip by flipping his board mid-air.

Nebraskan skatepark worker Wolow Gatluak was attempting a kick flip with the help of his friend, Nick Godinez.

Wolow approached the staircase he is jumping over but instead of using his feet to rotate the board, Nick slaps the board mid-air, beginning the rotation.

Wolow successfully lands the trick and is then met with his celebrating friends, elated at what they have just witnessed.

Wolow said: “It took us about 20 to 30 tries to achieve.

“We were all surprised and caught off guard when I landed it, it was crazy and unbelievable.

“The difficulties in landing the trick were like Coordinating with the board was going to go also one of the difficulties were flipping the board the right way so that I could land on it perfectly.”
