The Keaton is a wall trick invented by Brett Curry (a.k.a. Keaton) which was introduced in a Youtube video on August 6 2009[1]. The move involves performing a round-off to backflip landing with feet against the wall, and pushing straight off into a frontflip.

The move has so far only been landed in a gym, with the only video released containing the move so far being Brett's first. He performed it against a mat on the wall which was at a slight angle, and although he landed without touching his hands touching the floor, it was a low landing[1].

[edit] Variations

Brett's final quarter of 2009 video included an attempt into a foam pit of the same move, but with a gainer after rebounding from the wall rather than a frontflip.[2]
