I think he rides Cabrinha.

Was it within a hangtime event?

22 secs is awesome, but I'm pretty sure that was not a normal wind gust ;-)

Adam's time was 13 seconds and he crashed. The Richman bros ride for Cabrinha so he was probably on an Xbow or something. haha Yeah he is probably pretty damn light. Is the guy even 16 years old yet? SOMEONE has to have a vid of this. Any competition there always seems to be numerous people taking pics and vids. If anyone knows a buddy who went, hit em up. They may have something. This would be truly sic to see.

I know he's good but you can't claim 22 seconds without a video...

Word is they caught it all on tape. Hope to see it posted up, 22 sec is a long time.
