“A Hyundai blimp will hover above the lineup, dangling the keys to the new Hyundai within reach of competitors during the four 30min heat time slots. The Best aerial of the day by a surfer who grabs the keys, WINS!”

Hire a blimp to hover over a surf contest and hang a set of keys just outta reach for all except those who blast exceptional airs. Wild ass idea for a surf contest but it might be just so crazy that it’ll work out perfect. Hoping there’s a livestream of the event for those of us outside of Newcastle Main Beach, AUS…will update when that info is released. Check out the preview below:


Aerial specialists from 24 of Australia’s best Boardriders Clubs will take to the skies in the Hyundai Electric Air Exhibition over the weekend of May 15th/16th. The competition is part of the 2021 Australian Boardriders Battle National Final at Newcastle Main Beach.

Huge airs will be thrown down over the two days as one athlete from each club competes for the keys to a Hyundai Kona Electric for a year. It’s a massive prize – and the bigger the prize, the bigger the airs.

A Hyundai blimp will hover above the line-up, dangling the keys to the new Kona Electric above the break. Anyone in the heat who gets high enough to get their hands on the key, WINS!

The Hyundai Air Show will run before the semi-finals on Sunday 16th May, with $1000 going to the winner’s club.

Snapper Rocks Surfriders renowned Aerialist Mitch Parkinson will be trying every trick in his book of above the lip tricks to win himself a set of wheels if nominated as his club’s aerial specialist.

“It’s Hyundai’s business mantra to push the boundaries, reach further and endeavour to do the impossible by embracing innovation. By working closely with our trusted business partners for this project we wanted to deliver an activation that’s unique innovative and very dynamic in its approach – we couldn’t be more excited to hold this never been done before competition and what better prize than the lease of a Hyundai Kona Electric for a year.

With our mini blimp flying above Newcastle beach the Hyundai Electric Air Exhibition will be a spectacle you won’t want to miss. We can’t wait to see the talented aerialists take to the waves (and skies) and give it their best shot… best of luck to everyone taking part” – Kevin Goult, Marketing Director of Hyundai Australia
