Are you acrophobic? Did you just say no? Then, will you backflip on troll's tongue 700m from the ground? I hear a vague no being mumbled in the background. Ha! Well, Toby Segar, a 21-year old young man has taken it to the next level by performing a backflip on the edge of Trolltunga. Let's see how he did this daring task.
Sometimes regarded as "Troll's tongue", the edge of the cliff is a flattened area sticking horizontally out of the mountain in the north direction of River Ringedalsvatnet.
As if the task itself was not bone chilling enough, Toby actually stood on the edges without even caring that it may crumble. Got goosebumps, did ya?
Toby talked about his daring performance "Everyone is scared of heights, it just takes time to learn how to deal with that fear rationally. The scary bit was standing on the very edge of the overhang in preparation for the backflip."
Toby talks about the years of practice it took for him to attain this point. "I've been training Parkour for maybe 10 years now which is what really fuels all my travels and motivation to experience as much as possible while I'm still young."
