• Ryan Callinan makes it to the Kustom Airstrike

Safe to say the ankle rehab went well! Ryan Callinan goes for broke during the kustom Airstrike

Two weeks ago today, on an otherwise ordinary day, an ordinary boat motored out of Padang, on what could easily have been another ordinary surf trip. However, on the boat was perhaps the greatest group of young aerial surfers ever assembled, hand picked to compete in the world's richest aerial surfing event, the 2012 Kustom Airstrike.

John John Florence, Chippa Wilson, Ryan Callinan, Albee Layer and Matt Meola were invited to compete in this year's event, and they'll be flipping and spinning their way around the Mentawi's for 2 weeks in June.

From that trip Kustom will produce 4 webisodes that will air on the event website, kustomairstrike.com during August 2012.
