The Best Air Ever?

Where were you when you heard Merrill Lynch had failed? What color were your pants when Obama won the presidency? What did you eat for breakfast on 9/11?

The arcane details of epic circumstances are no longer arcane, but rather historic – so remember where you are and what you’re doing right now, because Jordy Smith has broken the sound barrier on a Red Bull trip in the Mentawais. Check the footage of, we dare say, the greatest aerial maneuver of all time.

Note that by the time the video finishes playing, someone may have eclipsed Jordy’s trickery with a flagrant huck of their own. The future is now comrades, hold on to your noseguards.
