Backflip over a pit of gators? No problem

Today in the Gazette's Out There, we feature a profile on Jason Lee (blue shirt), the godfather of mountainboarding. Besides being nice and a cool guy, Lee developed the first mountain board (with his best friend and brother), founded the largest mountain board company (MBS, based in Colorado Springs), and has won the title of national champion 5 times. Read the story here.

As if that wasn't enough, his spirit resides on YouTube in a clip of him doing a 22-foot backflip over a pit of man-eating gators. Watch the clip here.
