Air Of The Year: Albee Layer’s 720
This one was a tough choice. With John John’s 15-foot alley-oops and Gabriel Medina’s ridiculous cork 540s and backflips, the “Air Of The Year” category is getting crazier every year. This year, we had to give to nod to Albee Layer, who attempted 720s throughout the year; even the near-makes were f—king insane. Albee made the 720 cleanly near his home on Maui and with that, progressed surfing one step closer to catching up with the technical aspects of skating and snowboarding.
