Jack Freestone, Bondi Beach, Australia
You all know Jacky Freestone as a junior world champ. But do y’know the kid as an aerial maestro? Jack’s got as much panache above the lip as any other young gun, and readily stomps over-sized flare.

You all know Jacky Freestone as a junior world champ. But do y’know the kid as an aerial maestro? Jack’s got as much panache above the lip as any other young gun, and readily stomps over-sized flare. This picture, taken during a whip-in session at Bondi Beach, may be a PWC-assisted punt, but damn is it sweet.
Jack’s in town for the Boost Mobile SurfSho, and yesterday morning he and Owen Wright hooked onto the tow rope for a few whip-ins – crowd-pleasing no doubt, and fun as hell to boot. In Bondi this weekend? Get down and check out the action first hand – you’re guaranteed to see some soaring like this.
Oh, and another thing – Alex Johnstone, who shot this photo, is only 14. Watch out for the new wave of photogs – if this is anything to go by, they’re developing a romance with framing and composure real early.
