don't count if you don't land it ...

no just kidding - that was amazing. I think I need to stop bragging about my own hang time for a while...

Thanks guys!

Toby,
Its side off shore and flat there with that wind direction, it was blowing upper twenties or more that day. I ride wakestyle but love to bust those huge airs too. Have some video of multiple 8-10 second jumps which I landed that day, just didn't edit them yet. Unforunately had to bail that one because was going to land hot in a clam bed (tons of metal/plastic sticks all over).

Here's a couple big airs from a recent trip to Costa Rica!!! anyone else have some BIG AIR pics to post ? :D
