EPISODE One of the 2012 Kustom Airstrike is live and ticking in your lap. The concept is simple: five surfers, one boat and a single $50K bounty for the biggest air.
John John Florence, Matt Meola, Chippa Wilson, Ryan Callinan and Albee Layer whiled away late June casually sticking their eggshell skulls on the line; getting upside-down over the skin-deep Mentawai reefs.
