Trick: Air (aka Aerial)
Difficulty: Hard

1. Air (aka Aerial) is an advanced maneuver and requires a lot of speed.
2. The surfer will wait for his opportunity when the lip to come over.
3. The lip coming over is like the rim of a pool (which skaters often ride).
4. So the surfer waits for the lip to come over...
5. He approaches the wave from the top and as he hits the lip, he un-weights (lifting the weight out)

7. Let gravity do the rest (and it will), bringing you right back down into a perfect landing.
