This is a good idea. I’ll defently enter if I can find something narly to jump. I don’t wanna go for something with a big drop because I sprained my ankle a while ago and its still not completely normal, when I land hard on it it gets really sore and I’d probably end up breaking it or something. But I might try another gap like on top of some trains or something, if I can find a crazy one.
I agree. Maybe we should have a Best Crash Competition too. Not just a UPD. A proper CRASH!! Not that I want to encourage Jackass type shenanigans. Filmed whilst actually trying something that goes horribly wrong.
Well, i cant do much for ups, or downs for that (4 maybe 5 feet at the most for downs) but, i guess i’ll throw some balls at stuff and get it on tape. I got some balls for risky things, minus unispins (i nutted it once, once bit twice shy). I might be riding along with some skater friends.
Encouragement to anyone that doesnt think they can do stuff sorta, i enter in competitions for the sake of entering. I was in a snowboard comp on dec 1st of this winter, dont know where i placed, i didnt even stay for prizes (there was a snowstorm at the time). All i really wanted to was hang out and have fun, and be able to say ‘I did that!’ Oh!, by the way, i got a trixy bandana out of it too! lol. Sweet looking thing!
But, whatever, i’ll give it some balls and try and do crazier stuff. Im workin on some stuff now at the moment. I got 40 or 50 some pallets out back, i might set up something to gap, if the snow melts that is…
nice. do you buy them or just ask people from rays food place for them? lol
actually, a place where my dad gets supplies for some things that i dont feel like going in depth with. Anyway, we got a lot of em though, i dont know how many left since summer, but a good amount. we got them totaly free, they needed to get rid of em.
The best way to learn is to try something thats just beyond your ability and practice till you can do it. Isn’t that how we all learn to ride in the first place.
If someone is stupid enough to try something like a rolling 720 unispin down a 10 step and land on a 2" rail then the least they can do is let us laugh at their misfortune.
