Waves of the Day: Watch the Best of the Red Bull Airborne

The Red Bull Airborne hosted by Josh Kerr was completed Monday at Les Culs Nus in Hossegor, France. A selective mix of 18 contest veterans and freesurfers were chosen to compete for the best air in wedgy, post-storm conditions. Turns and barrels were averted for big sections and speed. With a leaderboard format, the highest score was doubled to push surfers to go all out.

Yago Dora became the first Redbull Airborne champion with a combined heat total of 18.27. Griffin Colapinto ended in a close second (17.21), and Jack Freestone came in third (15.37). Here's a look back at the inaugural specialty event and all the high scores you might have missed:

The CT will continue in Landes, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France for Stop No. 9 on the Championship Tour. Filipe Toledo and Stephanie Gilmore still sit at the top of the Jeep Leaderboard. Watch the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro France live October 3-14.
