Watched this again and it has Kinsley Wong ripping it in there!

It is good to see you in this tearing it up like you always do.

We are all pulling for you Kinsley, heal well and get back out there with us.

absolutely love this video, stumbled upon it and love it. The guy "Mike" from killed the wind, I watched some of his other press/butter slide vids, probably my favorite style rider out there. I would love to see a more detailed vid of him hopping to toeside then doing a hand draggy super man thing and rotating out to 540 as he does in the end of this vid

looks incredible. dude has a lot of control both riding/jumping blind and buttering it up

Nice. I particularily liked the wave TT stuff. You don't see much on the vids theses days. I enjoy watching wave TT action more its always more 3 dimensions that hardcore dudes on strapless surfboards.
