Trick: Backside 540 inverted Indy (height 6.5 meters)
Dark horse Colin Frei took the win in '09, beating Peetu Piiroinen and Olivier Gittler. Elsewhere in the contest, Piiroinen won the Highest Air award with an 8.80-meter effort that fell a scant meter short of Terje Haakonsen's world record. Speaking of Terje, the Norse legend came in fifth -- just the 15 years after his first Air & Style in 1994.
