6th female to pull off a double backflip: Christy Prior

The drool will fall from your mouth!

Eyeball this incredible first double wildcat from Christy Prior. She has joined the elite club who have landed an inverted double backflip including Katie Ormerod and the first Brit to-do-it Aimee Fuller (see their doubles here: KO, AF). Christy’s one was a bit different to the norm though, she added an indy – grabbing it the whole way through the trick.

With eyes for Olympic Slopestyle Gold at Sochi next year, the goofy-riding 24 year-old New Zealander is one of the most rapidly developing young riders on the scene. Her double is a sign that the girls are now stepping up, the level of performance has been sky-soaring – it is an exciting period for women’s snowboarding as the recent X Games Tignes final showed. You never know, we may even one day see a women riding in the Air and Style. That would be awesome, wouldn’t it?
