Eric Carlin is probably someone you have never heard of but he hold 2 Guinness records for skateboard tricks and he’s hoping to grab his third really soon. His first record was for the most ollies in a row; he nailed 242 in July of 2011. Then in January 2012 he broke the record for most ollies in a minute with 44 completed. Yesterday he filmed a part to send off to Guinness for the most 180’s in one minute. The last record was set at 17 and yesterday Eric landed 25. He sent the footage off to Guinness and hopes to hear back in 6 weeks if he is the new record holder.
