Christ Air

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Christ Air is an aerial skateboarding trick where, while flying in the air, the skateboarder picks up their board into one of their hands and then spreads their arms and straightens their legs forming a pose that resembles Jesus Christ on the cross.[1] It was invented by skater Christian Hosoi.[2] Recently, Denmark's Rune Glifberg has become the Christ Air's most famous practitioner. In April 2007 professional skater Martyn Jackson performed a 14 ft (4 m) high Christ Air, the second highest behind Hosoi himself. Danny Way has also performed the Christ Air.
