It's a trick where he uses the litter enhanced with chakra to support its own weight and float in the air, to use as a means of transportation, if needed. By increasing the size of Gaara platform can carry others along with him or even give someone else your own sandy platform to fly, as seen in the case of the other Kage, where this ability has become a central issue for evasion and transport the Fourth Shinobi World War. It should also be noted that this ability seems to have little chakra, as Gaara said that flying in the sand would help you to conserve chakra. Another proof of this technique is its speed; Gaara can cover great distances in a few minutes, and faster than the Ōnoki flight technique. However, your actual speed is displayed when Gaara used this technique to help Kakashi Hatake to a transfer rate when the latter was helping Guy when he used the Training Released Eight Gates, while the latter was in the middle of an attack. Other Media Edit In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, when handling your gold dust with his magnetism release, Rasa can use their own version of this technique. In Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Shinki was able to shape your sand iron in the form of a platform, supporting him and his allies, allowing it to float.
