Kustom Airstrike -You Pick Surfing’s Best Aerialist

What better catalyst to spark the future of progressive aerial surfing than 5 of the world’s best, competing for $50K on a Mentawais boat trip? This year’s “winner takes all” event included John John Florence, Albee Layer, Matt Meola, Ryan Callinan, and Chippa Wilson. Freesurfing Innersection winners vs World Title Contender, Ausrtalia vs Hawaii… the boys definitely surfed like they had something to prove.

Watch the fourth and most freakish episode as the boys go for broke, boosting man-sized airs over super shallow razor-reefs. Absent in this episode four was Matt Meola, who head-butted some coral in the third segment of the aerial arms race.

See the other webisodes and vote for your favorite here. Voting ends September 20th, share your favorite in the comments below.
