Current official record holder Russ Howell had this to say about the feat:

"Setting a record provides a stepping stone to a greater height. We all share a common passion for the Sport of Skateboarding and should also share each other's accomplishments. I'm stoked you raised the level of performance on handstands. Your new record will serve as a motivational stepping stone for others to aspire to. Challenges help make us reach higher and discover what's resident within our spirits. No limits!" - Russ Howell
