Airs are really hard to do on a surfboard. Well, landing them, at least. There are so many variables to consider in the attempt, all of which are constantly changing. That’s why the progression is so awesome: it’s really, really difficult, and more and more people are nailing bigger and bigger aerials. Surfing is no longer just about the wave. The canvas has increased in size to include that airspace above it. And we love it.
