Fact. CC is primarily a skate pro, this is how airs should look and looks so much like his solid ground version.

Skaters surfing > surfers skating. Except perhaps Dane Reynolds. I'm not sure he even skates, but if not he's more than welcome to.

John John gets some slack too; he skates well enough and surfing at that caliber would be hard to match on the ol' stuntwood.

Dane skates badly but has a respect for it.

John John and his bros, skate really f*cking well.

Well yah its a lot easier in a controlled medium, but this whole wave pool thing is definitely changing the air game.

Skinny long legged skate surf bros clearly have an advantage, but still kinda old school preferring the no grab gruntish style.......

Just make sure they flush out the brain worms first.

Doesn't NF skate too? He pulled a full on Danny Way dropping in off that helicopter. Did his old man right by that one. I haven't seen Heavy Water yet, but am looking forward to it. A lot of surf "films" overdo the exposition imo but his story is captivating enough for a deeper look.

Herbie, allegedly was one of the first people to skate a pool.

Christian and Nathan both skate.

Greyson (christian's son) is a maniac on a skateboard.

Whoa, he's deep in that smith and hanging on tight. Says a lot about his surfing too.

And yeah, Greyson's a freak.

Airs aside, turns out surfers just run better skateparks.

That was a sick vid. Site of future and newest surfing park? I believe it is.

That Tony Hawk slam was brutal. He's way to old to be taking those slams or at least I felt that way. Got to pay the bills and all those X wives alimony I presume.

You can’t “Get Air” when you’re already full of it. You gotta “Blow”.

Just a reminder that skateboarders still do better airs.

Also the wave pool they're building in Palm Springs is looking tidy. Plan is to dial in the tech then tear down/reconstruct/expand. It's gonna be quite the landmark once all is said & done.

Does look interesting. I've checked that place out prior. Pretty piddly. There's an industry geek conference I occasionally attend down there. Now I am more keen than ever on going if and when we ever get back to normalcy. :roll:

Seems like the wave pools are getting seshed hard this year with international travel being shut down. Did hear Mex border is open to vehicles now and Baja is back on line...... :idea:
