TRICKSHOTS! Crews shoot hoops, juggle on Flyboard in Crab Island

Published: Friday, March 15, 2013 at 01:51 PM.

Adding Flyboarding to their repertoire, The Legendary Shots, is an Alabama-based group that has been making basketball trick shots from seemingly impossible locations since 2006.

Some of their most viewed shots have been made from rollercoasters, hot air balloons, waterslides and zip lines. The Legendary Shots have been featured on national television commercials for Hampton Inn and Flip Video. They have also been featured on ESPN several times.

Next up on the Flyboard were Bill Berry and Jonathan Root — the entertaining-duo of Both Root and Berry said they had tried Flyboarding in the past, but neither of them have juggled while atop the board.

Juggling three, four and even five clubs, Berry balanced himself perfectly while on the flyboard.

"It's funny," said Berry. "But, juggling is actually much easier on the water; it's much more stable."

While Berry became a master juggler on the board, he wasn’t willing to try to hone his other skill while flying.

Although he can swallow an almost 10-inch sword on dry land, they told The Log that sword-swallowing while on the Flyboard is too risky — even for them.
