Yep. Maybe I should have uploaded the rest of the frames (like 5 more) of this sequence. He landed perfectly.

I sure hope I completed the backflip. I bet that would have really hurt. Oh wait, it does hurt. About 20 minutes later when we got to the beach I tried to do a backflip off of a 3 ft sandbank onto the wet sand. Right as I jumped, the bank caved in, but I was able to straighten out while I was in the air so that I wouldn't land on my head and break my neck, because I wasn't able to get enough rotation. I landed flat on my back. My back is still a little sore.
