If you have to think of what team rider Josh Kerr is known for, you’re probably thinking it’s gonna be his aerials and tube riding. Surfing just did a sweet little write up on Kerrzy and they get his POV on slabs and punts. Here are some highlights:

“For me, it was just about being a kid and getting really excited about getting in the air, as I’m sure most kids these days are too. It’s so easy to get excited as a kid, jumping off the wave, doing chop hops and the rest of it… That’s where it all started. And then I just started getting a little more obsessed with it than everybody else, I guess. It was one of my favourite things to do, just fling myself into the air, and then when I started landing on my feet it’s all I ever wanted to do.”

“That feeling when you take off and not knowing if you’re even gunna make it to your feet. I love that feeling when I’m paddling into it. There is absolutely nothing that beats that.”
