    Levi LaVallee smashed his way into history on New Year’s Eve. Just after midnight on the East Coast, Oakley’s star Freestyle Snowmobiler rocketed over 300 feet of water – safely landing and effectively shattering his own world record for distance jumping on a snowmobile, clearing 412 feet, 6 inches before a national audience (ESPN) over a Marina Park in San Diego, Calif. All just about a year after a horrific accident left him with broken ribs, a cracked pelvis, a collaped lung and a punctured second lung after slamming into the ground while training for his 2010 “Red Bull: New Year.
