  • When you're on the ground, hold your left stick down.
  • Now, press jump and boost at the same time, which will pull you up much faster than a standard Aerial.
  • Release the stick when your nose looks up, or you will do a backflip.
  • Immediately after releasing the stick, press jump and boost again.
