The CEO might sound hyperbolic, but Firewire’s capabilities were on display when teen surfing sensation Dusty Payne was awarded $50,000 this spring for winning the Kustom Air Strike best-aerial contest. Payne shot off a wave, spun 360 degrees in the air and landed with nary a hair out of place. The jaw-dropping, skateboarding-style trick, caught on video on the North Shore of Oahu, could shake surfing the way Tony Hawk’s two-and-a-half-rotation “900” helped to launch ESPN’s X Games into popular culture 10 years ago.
Indeed, Price says, competitive surfing was once about carving the surface of a wave; now the sport is heading “above the lip”--in the air--where skate-style moves are becoming de rigueur for a new generation of riders.
And just had to find this *epic* maneuver on YouTube....
But I imagine that's many of y'all's reaction to my pastime of golf.
Incidentally, I have to leave the house tomorrow around 4:30am to play golf 63 miles away. So I won't be blogging much more tonight.
