Kustom Airstrike Madness

Leave it to $50,000 to bring about one of the greatest collections of big maneuver surfing shots ever assembled. If you want to catch a glimpse of just how far aerial surfing has come in recent years, all you gotta do is suss out the Kustom Airstrike homepage. Kustom first announced this contest and hefty grand prize back in August and, from the looks of things, the announcement didn’t fall on deaf ears.

How it is Kustom will go about picking the winner is beyond me. The clips put together by the Dusty Payne, Clay Marzo, Pat Gudauskas and many more are truly special; a visual witness to the potential held by the next generation of surfers. The Gudauskas air in particular is silky smooth and happened to come on the last day of the contest period. If he ends up pulling in the win, he probably ought to hook his brothers up for their herculean effort to get the footage in on time.

“Since Pat was so far away from the things we deem normal like a phone and internet, he and his brothers Dane and Tanner made the hour and a half drive to the nearest town in “hopes” of finding internet so they could enter the clip. They didn’t even know if the waiting period was still open for Air Strike so they made the trek on a whim and let me tell you how stoked we are that they did.”

So for the judges of the Kustom Airstrike- good luck on this one. For you and I- let’s just sit back, pop a cold one, and enjoy the show.
