Air Bounce

From Ultipedia

An air bounce is a throw that 'bounces' on air. This bounce occurs in flight as the flat surface of the disc builds up enough air pressure to resist continued motion in that direction.

Air bounces are most often seen on backhand throws but can be applied to forehand throws as well.

There is also a reverse air bounce which is when a disc is thrown almost flatly straight up in the air, as the disc slows down it will begin to come down in the direction of whatever tilt it was thrown with.
