The Kickflip World Record Broken Again

Groningen, Holland, 12/3/2007
The Krux Kickflip Challenge isn't just an international affair. There is a lot of prestige in being the best in each country as well, and in Holland they have their own krux Kickflip Tour. Yesterday Laurens Groeneveld broke the record with 566 kickflips.

Yesterday Laurens Groenveld entered the qualifications for the Dutch Krux Kickflip Championships in the small town of Groningen. After he broke the old Dutch record with 300 kickflips, he kept going and looked towards the world record mark of 563. When he got to 540 his kingpin broke, but Laurens managed to borrow a board and do another 26 flips, thus breaking the world record with three flips.

The new world record is now 566 kickflips.

Hopefully Laurens will get a new kingpin and some rest before next week, because the Dutch Krux Kickflip Championships is held on the 9th of December at the Skatepark of Amsterdam.
