Matt Meola lands first spindle flip 540
Matt Meola's latest edit has been a long time coming. Why? Because Home includes a landed spindle flip 540. Meola's been progressing the rotation and direction of aerials ever since Taylor Steele's Innersection showcased this gent's technique, and awarded him $100k in 2011 for taking it out. Honed in the cross-shores of Maui, Matt's been landing the variation of the backflip, 'the spindle', for a while now. But he's added an extra rotation, and it's in the same league as Kelly Slater's Portugal 540. We all know how the internets fared after that explosion. Read Matt's breakdown of the move here.
