Watch a master at work as Candide Thovex alternately threads the needle and goes huge in the Swiss woods.
What does it take to land a 100-foot double backflip in the backcountry perfectly, dodging two copses of trees? We may never know, but we can watch this video to see it done — expertly filmed, in slow motion.
Thovex carves his way through the forest “somewhere in Switzerland” as Aziz Benkrich deftly captures the action. If short and sweet is your thing, you’ll love every second of the quick clip.
Thovex’s mega line is as tight as the utilitarian production. He barely rustles a twig on his way through the trees.
