The snowboarding and freeskiing worlds have been all about the triple and quad corks the last few years. But snowboarder Max Parrot is thinking things need to go in a different direction: progressing some other tricks.

Parrot, a young 22-year-old Canadian who has thrown plenty of world first’s in the X Games, just landed the world’s first double backside rodeo 1440.

His thoughts on it: “I’ve been thinking about this trick for a while and to be honest, I never thought I would do it this early in my snowboarding career! I am really stoked to be pushing the sport in the double boundaries. For many years, what we only saw was new triples and quads. Here’s a new double folks!”
