1000% YES on Mike Douglas sending this backflip. As JP Auclair states, “you can never go wrong with a backie!”

Back in 2004, a flip on skis gone tragically wrong broke Josh Dueck’s back and left him as a T11 — full paraplegic. For the past 8 years one of his dreams has been to do a flip on snow again. On February 3, 2012, Josh became the first person to perform a backflip on snow in a Sit Ski!
Also, see Josh in the Documentary film, THE FREEDOM CHAIR
