At the Maloof Money Cup in Kimberly, South Africa, Elliot Sloan landed the first-ever 900 tailgrab on a MiniMega ramp, winning the MiniMega best trick contest on Sunday.
Sloan pulled the trick off on his last attempt right as the buzzer was going off.
"Tail 9 in the house!" wrote Bob Burnquist on Twitter, adding, "Radicalness at its finest. Congrats, Elliot!"
Burnquist landed a 900 on the MegaRamp last September to become the first skater to land a 900 on the MegaRamp and only the fifth skater to land the trick in history -- Tony Hawk, Georgio Zatoni, Sandro Dias and Alex Perelson round out the elite 900 club. Fourteen-year-old Mitchie Brusco landed the world's second MegaRamp 900 in July of this year during practice at the Nescau MegaRamp Invitational in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
