Kelly Slater’s 540

The air heard round the world

And here it is again from another angle:

On a lay day in Portugal, Kelly Slater tagged a closeout ramp and just kept spinning, spinning and spinning in a fashion your eyes won’t believe. It’ll take a dozen replays for you to comprehend what Slater just did, but here’s his personal play-by-play, y’know, in case you want to try to stick a 540 for yourself:

“I just hit this closeout, and I just spun as hard as I could and I ended up backwards. And then I was like, ‘Oh, I might make this thing.’ Then I spun out and was like, ‘Oh, cool.'” —Kelly Slater
