Aussie Jack Freestone has taken out the Red Bull Airborne Bali, a World Surf League speciality event that highlights aerial surfing.
Freestone, 27, flew through the Qualifiers and Final in three-to-four foot (1 – 1.2 metre) waves at Keramas, a break adored by the air specialists due to the mega ramps offered by the wave.

Freestone was an early standout and easily qualified for the Final with epic performances through both of the Qualifying Heats. Freestone has long been known for his prowess in the air. He continuously dishes up some of the most mind-boggling freesurfing sections with an array of technical, vertical, and powerful aerial manoeuvres. In the Final, it was a huge frontside air-reverse to the flats that saw Freestone clinch an unassailable lead, gifting him his first Red Bull Airborne victory.

“I’m so stoked to win this event,” Freestone said. “It was so much fun. To share the water with all of those guys was so sick. I’ve got a really good relationship with Keramas. I love it and it seems to suit me perfectly.

The Corona Bali Protected has now progressed to the Quarter Finals Stage with a call set for 7 am Bali local time.
