A technique that utilises sand or Iron Sand to create a platform for aerial performances. While the normal size of one is only able to support the user themselves, the user can increase the size to allow others to fly along with them. The user can also grant individual platforms for his allies to fly on.[3] This technique apparently uses very little chakra, as Gaara stated riding on the sand would help him conserve chakra.[4]

Another testament to this technique is its speed, able to cover great distances in a short period of time, succeeding even Ōnoki's flight technique.
