    Hi y'all,

    I'm sure someone can help me with this phrase:

    "Catching massive air like this, they can see why the sharks are known as the extremers of seal hunting."

    I'm only concerned about the Spanish equivalent for "catching massive air".

    Thanks in advance,

    I don't know how to say it in Spanish exactly but it means they were flying high in the air. Volando tan alto en el aire? Algo asi. Tomando gran cantidad da aire (come avizor dijo) quiere decir eso?

    I think Driven you're right on track. The shark had just jumped out of the water, and your suggestion makes perfect sense. I guess we could translate this phrase as "Volar por el aire", or "Saltar por el aire".

    Gracias a todos.
