The plan behind Surface to Air was to create a little piece of Whistler in the home counties. Fortunately we had our own Cannuck-wannabe – freshly returned from seasoning and trail-building in Canada – to inspire us, and after some initial napkin sketches, Surface to Air started to take shape.
A year of manual earth moving and several tonnes of surfacing material later, there was an amazing new trail at Aston Hill – Surface to Air had been born.
Moving away from the Hill’s trademark steep, rooty, natural trails, Surface to Air is the first all-weather track on the Hill; it takes the cutting edge of global freeride mountain biking and brings it to the trail-hungry rippers of the home counties.
Surface to Air is steep, fast and fun; getting air is the main dish on the menu, and it’s served red hot. It really is the most fun you can have with your shorts on.
