MMWUC: Tjäder’s massive double backy, plus a redneck bonfire explosion and more

Comments by Shane Dowaliby/

This week, Jesper Tjäder shows off his skills at Nine Knights, two skiers pull off a mid-air fist bump, and Fabian Lentsch blows minds with his FWQ run. After that, a redneck lights a bonfire that’s bigger than expected, a man combines karate, fire and guitars into his America’s Got Talent audition tape, and a woman hears sound for the first time ever. Enjoy, and make it a great day out there.
