After a weekend playing around in the Waco wave pool Albee hopped on a plane back to his native Maui and immediately proceeded to what he’s calling one of the best airs he’s ever done.
He’s landed two of these before, but none with such speed and height, and according to Albee he’s got his time in Texas to thank for it.
“Absolutely I think [the trip to the pool] played a role – one hundred percent.” he told Stab. “I wasn’t really trying double-oops in the pool, but that repetition of launching and landing was such good practice for airs in general. When I came back home for this well, I felt incredibly solid on my feet. You can have some sections at the right that are really sketchy and shallow, but I felt unusually comfortable and connected with my board. So I think that was definitely from the, like… 500 sections we hit over the weekend [laughs].”
