First documented kickflip on a surfboard

Last Friday, March 4th, 2011, Zoltan Torkos from Santa Cruz, CA technically pulled the first documented kickflip on a surfboard. Everyone at Volcom is thrilled to see Zoltan's efforts and consider him to be leading the pack in the race for the $10,000 prize.

Rule #3 of the Kickflipoff contest states: "The kickflip must be a real air 'above the lip' - No backwash, No chop hops, or anything in the flats or below the lip of the wave."

With that said, Zoltan's kickflip is clearly below the lip and not a real air. Zoltan has pulled the first kickflip on a surfboard, but the $10,000 still remains up for grabs. Volcom called Zoltan with their decision and he replied, "I'm not here to argue against your decision, but I am here to revolutionize surfing."

Zoltan wants to dedicate his kickflip to the memory of his lost friend Carl Reimer, and he says the money is his and he will keep trying for the $10K. Making a kickflip on a surfboard IS possible, Zoltan proved it.

As of Thursday 10/03/11 :

"After further review Volcom has decided to reward Zoltan the $10K for his groundbreaking maneuver, and at the same time redefine the rules and double the prize money on the elusive "above and off the lip kickflip" now worth $20,000."

Crazy stuff indeed!
