Another year of Darkfest wrapped up in South Africa, and 2021 was one for the history books. An absolutely massive, record breaking 100-foot front flip makes this Darkfest one that will never be forgotten.

That historic flip is just one trick from a big weekend at Darkfest, albeit a historic one. All kinds of backflips, whips and more went down at the out-sized set of jumps in South Africa.

Watch the 2021 Official Darkfest Highlights below to make sure you don’t miss out on a minute of freeride madness.
