    standard practice



    some of (if not the) best surf clips from 2013

    Whoa.... thanks dude. Keep em coming.

    00:30... 360, beautifully landed. A lot of surfing aerials have that 'barely-pulled-it-off' look to them, but this one was nothing but style and grace. Damn.

    1:55 ... air over a 15' crumbling section. Holy sh*t!

    2:45 ... Tucked into a detonating mountain. That's commitment.

    Perfect recap. I am a decent surfer in my opinion but I don't understand how they do airs and land back on the wave. Looks so easy. I have tried a lot, no joy.

    A lot of them practice on skateboards. I saw a documentary from Red Bull with Jordy and Nick and some of their crew using a min half pipe and foam pit to learn. After years of skating I can pull airs on ramps fine and can launch them easily on a wave but not usually land them on the wave as it is moving and not static unlike the ramp.

    Oh and the opening wave was insane!!!! Nice vid!

    I may try to do airs on my skateboard. I don't have a foam pit but I have some grass and an old mattress.

    I've seen that video, it's dope!!! I think Mick says he's never skated before. Where do I get me some foam like that, breh? Party time.

    Nj42, I don't see the link to the vid you posted, where is it?

    Not sure where to get the foam. Maybe a packing supply store? Only foam pit I ever used was at Woodward in PA. Funn as hell to huck yourself off a ramp knowing youy had a nice soft landing waiting, I even tried a backflip off the launch ramp!

    ah, i just embeded it into the post, rather than posting a hotlink.
    here's the link: http://vimeo.com/85104626


    edit: i've seen & read that jjf skates a lot w/ greyson fletcher & is prob. at least as good a skater as he is a surfer. makes sense, IMO, that these guys are figuring out the body mechanics on land first, where they can repeat the motion over & over again.
