While I enjoy wakestyle, boosting huge always puts a huge smile on my face.

What is your favorite Big Air (airstyle) move?

A very simple one: Classic, fully tweaked table top like Robby does them. Clean and stylish.

A big board off +25-30ft always looks nice

Megaloops though, winter winds let us get these down quite a lot...

Ahhh I am not a trickster and don't know the name of the tricks.

But the wholy grail form me is to charge full speed fully powered heelside at a clean head high wave lip, BOOOOST, Tweak a board grab with a straight leg hold it as long as I can, land toeside downlooping onto the next wave face and smash a hard into the pocket then ride the wave back upwind. rinse and repeat!....

Its not very often that perfect wind speed, wind angle, tide, swell period wave size all align at the same time to pull the maneuver.

But when it does and I am in the zone it is such an amaizing feeling to pull one off.

Really dislike the deadman it's too gimmicky for my taste, others like it I know, just not for me.

best huge air tricks for me are megaloop front roll or huge air with a board off, simple is good, you can't really see someone spinning and flipping when they are that high up so it looks better if you do a huge board off and hold it just keep the trick simple and stylish. I think if you go back and watch the 2013 king of the air, you'll see people that were doing double rotations looked like they were dangling -- this is a trick that looks better closer to the ground.

For the low air tricks the most stylish is jesus walk or dark slide

For the medium air tricks you want the tricks Toby does, complicated double passes and spins stuff like that looks good about 10-20 feet up

Just my taste.
