Eli Bouchard is eight years old, and he may be the youngest snowboarder to land a double backflip. After a snowstorm hit Bouchard's hometown of Québec, Canada, the conditions were perfect for him to practice—soft landings were a must for the inevitable crashes. In this video from Marc André, Bouchard talks about the preparation (and a bit of stress) that went into landing the double backflip at his snowboarding school, Maximise.
