Dominic Di Tommaso Gets Served Trying to Front Flip the Lyon 25

The Lyon 25 is probably skateboarding’s most infamous set. It measures 14 feet, nine inches, and the jump spans 22 feet. Aaron “Jaws” Homoki is the only person to successfully land it in October of 2015 for the cover of Thrasher. Until recently, no other human has stepped to this beast since Jaws. That changed when Australian parkour pro Dominic Di Tommaso attempted to front flip it. Despite coming very close, the result was a destroyed ankle. But from the looks of it, he should be able to go back for the make when he heals up. Have a look at the footage above.
