23-year-old New York native, Tyshawn Jones is now a two-time Thrasher Skater of the Year. The skateboarding magazine crowned Jones with the title for the second time in his career (the first came in 2018) highlighted by his 'subway series' kickflip and backside flip respectively over the MTA train tracks.
The kickflip is darn impressive. Hell, just doing an ollie from one platform to another is a ridiculous achievement. But this? No way. Tyshawn and his kickflip can be seen in all its glory on the December cover of the magazine.
As if that weren't enough, Tyshawn went and outdid himself. The dude backside flipped platform to platform. Mind you, trains are running regularly, his cameraman is on the tracks, and a cop even yells at the crew at one point. This is actually one of the craziest things I've ever seen done on a skateboard.

There goes that man. King Skateboards Founder, Kendrick Lamar Video Skater, Thrasher's Skater of the Year 2022. And the proof is clearly in the pudding. Tyshawn Jones is a bad, bad man.
