Portuguese Stuntman Struggles to Break the World Record for Balancing Skateboards on a Motorcycle


Portuguese stunt performer Kevin Chaves is currently in a record-breaking attempt to perform his Rola Bola motorbike act in 50 cities worldwide.

Circus Berlin performs the 21-year old by standing on skateboards that are stacked on a motorbike.

“Well, I performed the skateboard stunt which I balance on a cylinder, which is my act,”Chaves stated. “It takes a lot of practice, a lot of years, but I decided to do it here in London to try and break the record.”

He did his first 50 stunts at Greenwich Park’s Royal Observatory.

David Fitzgerald, Circus Berlin Manager, was happy to see the return of live circus shows after the pandemic.

“I am really happy, really excited that we are working and that I get to do this record,”He said. “It is a wonderful opportunity for me, you know, to bring joy to people again, and it is really nice to be back.”

Chaves will be taking his talents to Paris, Rome and Berlin as part of his record-breaking effort.
