    [QUOTE=Erock;147253]That's really original, really.... it is. Still not quite as funny as being told to enter the "real world" by someone who calls himself a "pro," from Folly nonetheless.

    PRO: Hehe... yeah.

    well ecock im actually not from folly at all im in grad school at CofC and rent a place on folly. just thought the name was good along with my posts to piss people off like you. in fact im from Florida and no im not a pro surfer as you probably have imagined but i do rip harder than you ever could (even though i feel no need to validate my ability on a surf forum). sure the surf sucks here but i make the best of it. I SURF FOR THE PURE ENJOYMENT OF BEING IN THE OCEAN AND RIDING WAVES. unlike you ill end up living somewhere where the waves are great and not in ****ty southern nc. on the point of aerials i dont have any advice. its just something i do when the wave permits and i dont really think about how its done. like others have said its similar to getting air in skateboarding or snowboarding same motion and all. i do agree with erock in going for distance rather than height

    Please, enjoy going super sonic.

    But PLEASE do not film it. Seriously does anyone else HATE videos of airs? They are incredibly boring to watch. If kelly slater pulls a 540 after ripping down the line, after throwing in 9 turns and a floater, and comes back down on the actual wave, yeah that is awesome. But everything else has it's own place, and it's not in a 10 minute long surf video

    Well I was excited to read this thread and find some advice for learning airs, but who am i kidding, I should know by now the advice to sh*t talk ratio is ridiculous on here. Thank you for those who gave some advice, especially comparing it to bmx and skating, which i have done for almost 12 years. I think it always seemed similar so i'll integrate that into my attempts, which by no means are very good yet, but I have fun.

    You get what you pay for......

    Anyway, I definitely don't agree with equating it to BMX or snowboarding.... skating may be the closest, but the variables are completely different. I think you need to pay the most attention to the wind speed/direction and making sure you are surfing waves steep enough to launch from without launching out the back.

    Fawley: Please tell me where "the waves are great" that you can live year-round. I'm sure your over-priced (CoC) M.A. in Super Awesome and Better than You will allow you to live in such a mythical place and make millions of dollars while only working 3 days a week.

    "I rip harder than you ever could (even though i feel no need to validate my ability on a surf forum)." So, so ironic. Plus, PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!
