The bizarre attraction of watching 7 minutes of repeated air attempts

Watch Leo Fioravanti practice airs at Alaia Bay for “7 Straight Minutes of Unadulterated Pro Surf Training.” ‘Yawn’ you say to this title? No interest? Leo posted the clip with the more exciting verbage of “My First Backflip On A Perfect Artificial Air Wave” because, well, it’s the internet and big, bold titles scratch the algorithm. Either title you chose (ours is honest and less hyperbolic, so please reward our straightforwardness with a share or like) will suffice because the clip is a great study in one determined pro’s approach to landing a personal-best air in a wave pool. And while Leo claims the backflip, it’s his mile-high straight airs and alley oops that push the needle on our stoke meter. Enjoy.
