A kick flip – a 360-degree rotation in mid-air – is a common stunt on a skateboard – but Dyrdek didn’t want to just leave the stunt there.

“A kick flip with a Chevy Sonic was a no-brainer,” said Dyrdek. “I am a Chevy guy from my ’69 Camaro to the Tahoe I drive every day. The Sonic’s power and sportiness made it the perfect vehicle for this awesome stunt.”
The stunt was performed before spectators at Six Flags Magic Mountain, while MTV filmed the feat for the Season 5 premiere of Fantasy Factory.
